    Palin’s taking her obscene and hate-filled rhetoric on the road for some coast-to-coast finger pointing which will surely continue to damage our country’s world view. Historically, her speeches are causing more harm than good. I shutter to think what she would do and say with the power allotted to our Presidential office. I drew up a visual commentary of the effects her he recklessness on my artist’s blog at http://dregstudiosart.blogspot.com/2011/01/sarah-palin-made-me-do-it.html
