It is no secret how I feel about Sarah Palin. I think she is an incompetent upstart. I think she’s a hypocrite. I think she is an embarrassment to women everywhere who have fought long and hard to be taken seriously.
I would never wish death upon her, though.
Which is what New Hampshire State House candidate Keith David Halloran did on the Facebook page of Republican D.J. Bettencourt, who had a link up to the obituary of Alaska’s former Senator Ted Stevens. Stevens, a legend in Alaskan politics, died when his plane crashed en route to a fishing trip this past week.
In response to the post, Halloran wrote, “Just wish Sarah and Levy [sic] were on board,” referring to Sarah Palin and Levi Johnston, the father of her grandson.
Halloran’s statement received a quick response from the state GOP, which said, “His publicly stated death wish for Gov. Palin and her family is abhorrent, and has no place in our public discourse.”
You know, I don’t always agree with Republicans, but they were absolutely right on this one. I mean, that’s just … sick.
