Sarah Palin's Banned Books (shocking!)

When a politician tries to ban artistic expressions and free thought
one has to wonder what kind of (potential) president that politician
will be and what kind of supreme court judges that politician will
select. We didn't like the book banning when Hitler or the Taliban did
it. Why is is suddenly so sexy if Sarah Palin does it???? Is anybody
awake? Are we all asleep??????

Sarah Palins List of Banned Books

For those of you who think that all of the opposition to Sarah Palin
is from "leftwing" nuts; the following is a list of books that she
tried to get banned when she was mayor of Wasilla. I am not sure that Mark
Twain, William Shakespeare, Maya Angelou and Geoffrey Chaucer would be
considered dangerous to children. Judy Blume give me a break. Harry
Potter, who is kidding who. I also fail to see how Webster's Ninth New
Collegiate Dictionary by the Merriam-Webster Editorial Staff should be
banned.

This information is taken from the official minutes of the Wasilla
Library Board. When the librarian refused Palin tried to get her fired
as she did with the Safety Director of the State who refused to fire a
trooper who was getting a vicious divorce from her sister

This is the list of books Palin tried to have banned. As many of you
will notice it is a hit parade for book burners.
