Yes, American democracy has come to thisMax Blumenthal reports on The Witch Hunter Anoints Sarah Palin Huffington Post 09/24/09. And, may Apollo have mercy on us, he's not using "witch hunter" in a figurative sense. In the Republican Party, the inmates are running the asylum. Blumenthal writes:
Behind the Christian right's enthusiasm for Palin's conservative credentials is a visceral sense that that she has come from them, not to them. Some right-wing evangelicals even believe she has messianic potential. As former Christian Broadcasting Network vice president Jim Bramlett wrote, "Sarah is that standard God has raised up to stop the flood. She has the anointing."Tags: christian right, christianism, sarah palin
