Sarah Palin: The Ominous Parallels

Sarah Palin was born in February 1964. So was I.

In her childhood she lived briefly in Idaho. So did I.

She currently lives in a state whose name begins with the Arabic word for “the.” So do I.

She received her degree from the University of Idaho. I’ve lectured at the University of Idaho.

She’s the chief executive officer of her state. I’m the chief executive officer of my think tank.

She has expressed sympathy for secessionist movements. So have I.

She has served as Ethics Supervisor for the Oil and Gas Conservation Commission. I teach ethics every semester.

She likes to shoot moose. I once shot a photo of a moose.

She’s in favour of war, censorship, forcible reproduction, corporate welfare, and gun rights. I’m in favour of gun rights.

She has said: “individual freedom and independence are extremely important to me and that’s why I’m a Republican.” I have said: “individual freedom and independence are extremely important to me, and I agree that Sarah Palin is a Republican.”

She has said: “I think God’s will has to be done in unifying people and companies to get that gas line built.” I’ve said some very silly things too.

She had never met John McCain before this year. I’ve never met John McCain at all.
