The Kamchatka Kandidate

Consider this: Did Russian agents secretly slip across the Bering Strait and kidnap Sarah Palin while she was mayor of Wasilla? Did they then take her to a top-secret base in Kamchatka where they drugged her, hypnotized her, and programmed her as a sleeper agent? And are they now waiting patiently for McCain to keel over so that their Kamchatka Kandidate can take control? And was this all part of a Russian "Reconquista" plot to take back Alyeska and with it the entire free world?

Crazy shit, I know. But consider this: hasn't the Right been making roughly equivalent claims about Barack Obama and Islamic terrorism? How he was "programmed" in radical Islam at a madrassa in Indonesia? And haven't these claims been given the patina of respectability by mainstream media outlets? As you consider these questions, consider also what would have happened to Sarah Palin's candidacy had she been a liberal Democrat and Barack Obama's running mate:

Palin aides peeked into trooper's files, union says -
ides to Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin improperly obtained her former brother-in-law's state police personnel files and cited information from those records to raise complaints about the officer, the head of Alaska's state police union said Thursday.

"It's apparent to us that the governor or someone on her staff had direct access to his personnel file, as well as his workers' comp file, and those are protected," said John Cyr, executive director of the Alaska Public Safety Employees Association.
