Sarah Palin is a Conservative Republican. No questions asked.
Her husband, Todd Palin? That's another story altogether.
Mr.Palin was registered as a member of the Alaskan Independence Party for seven years (1995 through 2002), and though this wasn't a huge issue during the 2008 election, it does speak some volumes as to what Mr.Palin politically believes. You see, the AIP was founded as an very extreme pro-secessionist organization by Joe Vogler, and though their membership has moderated from that original stance over the decades, many within have not, which lead to Governor Hickel leaving the party back in 1994.
Did you get that? A year after Governor Hickel left the Party (he was and is the only Governor to ever be elected in Alaska on a third party ticket), due to lingering secessionists attempting to have another vote on Alaskan statehood, Todd Palin became a voting member of the Party, and only left in July of 2002, when his wife was running for the GOP Nomination in the Lt. Governor race.
Keep in mind that this post has nothing to do with Sarah Palin. I love the woman, I believe she is a damn fine American, and would definitely vote for her to become our 45th President of the United States, but she should keep her husband at arm's length when endorsing/supporting candidates. As a lot of potential Democratic and Republican opponents could use Todd Palin's questionable background to destroy a whole bastion of Republican candidates who Sarah Palin endorsed.
So I have this memo for Governor Palin: Keep Todd at a Distance when supporting Republicans for public office, and please do not let him publicly endorse/support the candidates that you do, as I can guarantee that smart opponents, whether they be Democrat or Republican, will only go after the endorsed candidate, and your husband as anti-american loons.
