Books Sarah Palin wanted to ban…

Reposted from a friend email:

For those of you who  think that all of the opposition to Sarah Palin is from “leftwing” nuts; the  following is a list of books that she tried to get banned when she was mayor  of Wasilla. I am not sure that Mark Twain, William Shakespeare, Maya Angelou  and Geoffrey Chaucer would be considered dangerous to children. Judy Blume  give me a break. Harry Potter, who is kidding who. I also fail to see how  Webster’s Ninth New Collegiate Dictionary by the Merriam-Webster Editorial  Staff should be banned.

This information is taken from the official  minutes of the Wasilla Library Board. When the librarian refused Palin tried  to get her fired as she did with the Safety Director of the State who refused  to fire a trooper who was getting a vicious divorce from her sister

She  also told her Assembly of God Church in June 2008 that it is “God’s Will” that  the federal government contribute to the expansion of the Alaska pipeline. (M  ust have been talking to George Bush). She sounds like one of those lawyers  Bush put into the justice department.

This is the list of books Palin  tried to have banned. As many of you will notice it is a hit parade for book burners.

    The dictionary must have some “bad words” in it. She is stupid and evil. One must wonder if she’s read those books, or if she just got the list from some other book burning fanatic.

    Ah, a little surfing revealed that list is NOT Palin’s (too bad.) it’s list of all the books banned. However, according to Time, when she was elected mayor, she inquired as to how to ban books in the library. So, whether or not the specific books were on her list, she is a book banner.
