Palin, Have you Banned/Burned Any Good Books Lately?

FD: This story will not go away... Digg has picked it up

NO Confirmation, Folks. Drop it.

One of our Senior Commentators sent this list to USa.

Unfortunately, it is a FALSE story. Palin simply asked the libraian if she would remove books for her...

Books Mayor Palin tried to remove/Ban from Wasilla library

Sarah Palin as Mayor tried to ban these library books, then she tried to fire the librarian who refused. These are some great books! They Must Not have agreed with her Fundamentalist
Religion that Considers Armageddon a good thing and hopes it happens as soon as possible !
( Her finger on the Nuclear Button could make it happen ! )
To Kill a Mockingbird? The Grapes of Wrath? Catcher in the Rye?

Leaves of Grass? East of Eden? The Merchant of Venice? Tom Sawyer? A Seperate
Peace? These great classics should be required reading!

McCain-Palin is the small minded past, not the future.

This blows my mind! Some of my favorite books of all time are on this
