Subject: RE: BS: RFKennedy, Jr., - Palin quotes fascist
wikipedia on Westbrook Pegler
Interest in Pegler was recently revived when Republican Vice-Presidential nominee Sarah Palin quoted him in her acceptance speech at the Republican National Convention in St. Paul, Minnesota. "We grow good people in our small towns, with honesty and sincerity and dignity", she said, a Pegler quote that also appeared in the book "Right From the Beginning" by Pat Buchanan. She did not acknowledge Pegler by name, merely citing 'a writer'. The speech was written by Matthew Scully, a senior speech writer for George W. Bush.
I wonder if Sarah Palin even knew who was being quoted. I kind of doubt it. She seems clueless about a lot of details.
