Sarah Palin has energized the Republican base, but she’s also helped Barack Obama raise millions. Political insider Taegan Goddard uses a viral e-mail to explain why the moose hunter makes liberals nuts.
If you want to know why Gov. Sarah Palin drives liberal Democrats crazy—and is helping Sen. Barack Obama raise money at a record pace—here’s an excerpt from an viral email making its way around the country:
If you grow up in Hawaii, raised by your grandparents, you’re “exotic, different.”
Grow up in Alaska eating moose burgers, a quintessential American story.
If your name is Barack you’re a radical, unpatriotic Muslim.
Name your kids Willow, Trig and Track, you’re a maverick.
Graduate from Harvard law School and you are unstable.
Attend 5 different small colleges before graduating, you’re well grounded.
