Sarah Palin — Religious Fanatic, Religious Bigot

Juan Cole, professor of modern Middle Eastern and South Asian history at the University of Michigan, writes on the fundamentalist Christian extremism of Sarah Palin.
"[T]he values of [John McCain's] handpicked running mate, Sarah Palin, more resemble those of Muslim fundamentalists than they do those of the Founding Fathers. On censorship, the teaching of creationism in schools, reproductive rights, attributing government policy to God's will and climate change, Palin agrees with Hamas and Saudi Arabia rather than supporting tolerance and democratic precepts. What is the difference between Palin and a Muslim fundamentalist? Lipstick."
