Who could have guessed?
Palin a John Bircher?
Missed this when it came out in September, nor have I seen reference to it until today's link in TPM and eschaton.
Who could have imagined a Bircher would get this close to the Oval Office? I grew up in a Southren all-Republican all-the-time family. My mother campaigned for Goldwater.. but sheesh, we regarded the Birchers as raving lunatics.
I thought the John Birch Society had shriveled up and blown away with the mainstreaming of Birch anti-intellectual know-nothing nativism into the GOP.
