Subject: RE: BS: RFKennedy, Jr., - Palin quotes fascist
She probably didn't think she was quoting anyone. If she thought she was quoting Pat Buchanan, she probably would have referenced Buchanan. The speech writers probably hi-jacked it as their own material--or maybe even thought it was their own material--and put it in the speech. It doesn't sound very original or writer specific. It isn't anything that couldn't be generated by any number of different people at different times and/or places.
