Stein says that as mayor, Palin continued to inject religious beliefs into her policy at times. "She asked the library how she could go about banning books," he says, because some voters thought they had inappropriate language in them. "The librarian was aghast." That woman, Mary Ellen Baker, couldn't be reached for comment, but news reports from the time show that Palin had threatened to fire Baker for not giving "full support" to the mayor.Mary Ellen Baker resigned from her library director job in 1999.
Boston Herald writes about it here.
My friend Sid, the former ‘60s radical who’s now a honcho in Republican inner circles, admits that Sarah Palin is being gagged by Steve Schmidt. “It’s weird,” says Sid. “She's our hottest ticket and Schmidt wouldn’t let her go on any of the Sunday talk shows." Sid says, he wants to start a “Free Sarah" campaign. I told him to be careful what he wishes for.
Sid’s comments were confirmed--everything Sid tells me needs to be confirmed-- by Time Magazine’s, Jay Carney.
“…and they broke me.”Remember Bush's attack on the "angry Left" at the convention?
"Fellow citizens, if the Hanoi Hilton could not break John McCain's resolve to do what is best for his country, you can be sure the angry Left never will."
So why aren't reporters asking John McCain what he meant by “broke me” in his convention speech? What really happened when he “broke?” Did he roll over on his comrades? Reveal military secrets? What? In his book, McCain claims that the information he “gave up” under interrogation was “of no real use to the Vietnamese.”
You mean, that's it? End of story?
