Sarah Palin: “I Don't Hire No Steenking Negros!”
Aw come on, nobody’s perfect. So she’s a racist. But she is NOT a witch. And that’s certifiable. The Bishop has given his official verdict on the Governor’s Mansion: This house is clean.
The racism story comes from Gwen Alexander, president of the African-American Historical Society of Alaska. Last April fourteen black leaders in Alaska met with Palin to complain about a lack of job opportunities for minorities. Blacks only make up 4% of Alaska’s population. But when you add Eskimos, Aleuts, Indians and Asians, minorities make up a quarter of the population. Whatever your stereotype of Alaska may be, it's one of the country’s most ethnically diverse states.
Anyway, during this meeting, Palin told the group that she didn’t have to hire any blacks, and furthermore she didn’t intend to. So there.
But remember now, taking the good with the bad — she is not a witch. In May of 2005, Sarah Palin took part in an exorcism by the Bishop Thomas Muthee, from Kenya. (Irony alert: Bishop Thomas Muthee is…[gasp]…a Negro!)
Here is a YouTube video showing the evil spirits being driven from our future vice president. Enjoy.
In other news from the All Sarah All The Time Network: she won't reveal any personal financial information until after her debate with Joe Biden. That gives us two things to look forward to.
She’s been cramming like crazy for this debate and she’s ready to kick some butt. She can already recite the entire Bush Doctrine, she’s doing research on the Nuremburg Trials after the Korean War, and she can name three countries.
