Hey Sarah, WHO's palling around with terrorists???

Sarah Palin was a strong supporter of the AIP, whose motto is "Alaska First, Alaska Always".

Their leader and founder, Joe Volger, said this in 1991:

The fires of hell are frozen glaciers compared to my hatred for the American government.

Here's more from Talking Points Memo:

Palin has courted the group over the years.

Three years after the controversial interview, in 1994, Palin attended the group's annual convention, according to witnesses who spoke to ABC News' Jake Tapper. The McCain campaign is disputing her presence there, but Tapper found two people to attest to it.

The McCain campaign today produced Palin's voting registration records, and said they proved she was never a member of the party.

But she has repeatedly reached out to the group. The McCain campaign has confirmed she visited the group's 2000 convention, and she addressed its convention this year, as an incumbent governor whose oath of office includes upholding the Constitution of the United States.

Palin's husband, Todd Palin, was a member of the party from 1995-2002 with a brief exception in 2000.

It's worth noting that Vogler isn't just some figure from ancient history. He is still being hailed on AIP's site this year, the same year Palin addressed the group's convention.

SOOOOO, Sarah, who has been "palling around" with terrorists? You wanted to go there, now it's on...

  1. Poor Vulger - er Volger. Murdered in the early 90's during a plastic explosives deal gone bad. Couldn't have happened to a nicer guy. There was an American Justice episode about him a few years back.
