Palin vs Bloggers

More

There are so many chilling details in the NYT's account of Palin's paranoid, vindictive, corrupt abuse of gubernatorial and mayoral power, I don't quite know where to begin. But I wonder how the right-wing  blogosphere feels about a small-town tyrant who keeps an enemies list and seeks to destroy the reputation of anyone who dares question her:

And four months ago, a Wasilla blogger, Sherry Whitstine, who chronicles the governor’s career with an astringent eye, answered her phone to hear an assistant to the governor on the line, she said.

“You should be ashamed!” Ivy Frye, the assistant, told her. “Stop blogging. Stop blogging right now!”

Now I begin to understand the intimidation I have been subjected to for simply asking questions. All I can reassure my readers is: I'm now more determined than ever to reveal the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth about this dangerous, vindictive Christianist cipher being foisted on the United States.
