Alice, What On Earth Are You Talking About?

Reader comment on item: Confirmed: Barack Obama Practiced Islam
in response to reader comment: Palin Represents The Interests of Oil Companies Who Support The Arab Muslim Middle East

Submitted by Sofa Sogood (United States), Sep 21, 2008 at 02:51

What you say about the oil industry is true. They have always been on the side of the Arabs who they do business with, and are rather anti-Israel, and often anti-Semitic.

But, uh, Alice, where did you get that information that "Palin ... has consistently represented the interests of the oil industry without exception"?

I've been reading a lot about Palin, and with all the information that has been amassed about her, I haven't come across anything that would substantiate what you wrote.

It's kind of against logic, though. She is promoting the idea of drilling for ALASKAN oil -- that's American NOT Middle Eastern. She's in favor of drilling WITHIN the U.S. and offshore. She is in favor of becoming independent of Arab Oil.

What on earth are you talking about?
