According to GOP mythology, John McCain’s decision to select Sarah Palin to be his running mate was because Palin is a tough, reform-minded person, willing to break with the Republican party for the right cause. Would one of those causes be banning library books?
According to a revealing article about Sarah Palin in TIME, Inc:
“As mayor, Palin continued to inject religious beliefs into her policy at times. She asked the library how she could go about banning books.”
Palin said some voters thought they [the library books] had inappropriate language in them.
“The librarian was aghast.”
When the librarian refused, Palin threatened to fire the librarian.
Sarah Palin, flushed with the power that comes from being the mayor of a tiny town of 6,500, forgot all about the First Amendment.
