The AP desperately tries to play the race card on Palin.
First off, let’s just take a look at what she actually said. From the AP article itself: “Our opponent … is someone who sees America, it seems, as being so imperfect, imperfect enough, that he’s palling around with terrorists who would target their own country,” Palin told a group of donors in Englewood, Colo.

Governor Palin accused Senator Clinton of whining.” Beth Fouhy then wrote: Palin praised | Read More »
AP writer Glen Johnson smears Sarah Palin
This one is so blatant that it has to be deliberate. Here’s how the article starts: Alaska Gov.

The AP Pimps the Obama & Russian Talking Point With Democrats As Objective Observers
