Is Sarah Palin A Socialist? Keith Olbermann Says So & Even Fox News Ponders The Question!

What A Hypocrite!
What A Hypocrite!

Sarah Palin is not exactly the right person to call someone a “socialist.” She did “spread the wealth” in Alaska after all. But as we know, this whole election has been a showcase of hypocrisy. Even Fox news, who usually delivers Republican talking points, have pointed out that Alaska is also known as “America’s socialist state” because of Sarah Palin. Here is an excerpt from Fox News :
John McCain and Sarah Palin have escalated their campaign to peg Barack Obama as a wealth-spreading socialist — but the principles they accuse Obama of espousing are not foreign to the governor of what some call America’s socialist state.

In Alaska, where Palin is governor, natural resources are state-owned, and Alaska residents receive yearly dividend checks from a $30 billion state account built largely from oil royalties.
However, Palin has in touting her state’s policies used language similar to the “spread the wealth” comment made by Obama that has since drawn fire from Republicans.

We share in the wealth when the development of these resources occurs,” she was quoted as saying in a recent New Yorker article. “It’s to maximize benefits for Alaskans, not an individual company.”

In a January address to Alaskans, Palin praised “our commonly owned natural resources” as a “state treasure.”

And in a July column in the Anchorage Daily News, she was quoted as saying: “These payments represent a distribution of Alaska’s resource wealth to the owners of the resource.”

When home fuel and gas costs soared this year, Palin raised taxes on oil companies and used some of the money to boost residents’ checks by $1,200. Every eligible man, woman and child got a record $3,269 this fall.” (End of Excerpt) Read the full article here:
