Bullying and Bigotry
Though Palin tries to be politically savvy, apparently she didn't get the memo that slurs don't earn votes.
A friend of mine sent me this article, which outlines Palin's extensive use of bigoted terms when away from the microphones. She is described as 'sexist,' 'racist,' 'vindictive,' and 'mean.' Slurs are allegedly a main staple of her vocabulary. To top it off, residents of Wasilla are reluctant to speak or be quoted opposing the GOP - reluctance born from fear of Palin and the Republican Party.
Words can't describe my outrage upon reading this. Freedom of speech and expression, right out the window. A government that essentially suppresses any opposition through intimidation and bullying tactics. Blatant racism heard from a politician.
