Todd Palin, husband of Alaska Governor Sarah Palin belonged to the Alaska Independence Party for seven years. The AIP is a secessionist organization founded by Joe Vogler. The same Joe Vogler who the AIP proudly touts on their website as saying: "I'm an Alaskan, not an American. I've got no use for America or her damned institutions."
I’ve known about the Palin’s association with AIP since the news broke back in September. But in light of the relentless barrage of lies being spewed by Governor Palin about Barack Obama this week, I urge you to read the brief article by David Talbot in Salon. He does an excellent job of summarizing the Palin’s association with AIP, including Governor Palin’s recorded address to the group this year and puts it all in a very bright, very relevant light.
