Vetting Sarah Palin: Pat Buchanan Supporter

Wow, she just gets scarier and scarier.

Sarah Palin seems to have been one of those people who intentionally voted for Pat Buchanan in 2000.

July 17, 1999, from the Associated Press State & Local Wire:

Pat Buchanan brought his conservative message of a smaller government and an America First foreign policy to Fairbanks and Wasilla on Friday as he continued a campaign swing through Alaska.
"I'm hoping the people of Alaska will disagree that we need a candidate anointed by Washington, D.C.," he said to a group of three dozen supporters.

Among those sporting Buchanan buttons were Wasilla Mayor Sarah Palin and state Sen. Jerry Ward, R-Anchorage.

What does this tell us? Among other things, she's almost certainly anti-Israel, given the centrality of "America First" (which for Buchanan is code for "get the country out of the hands of the Jewish elite") policy to the Buchanan campaign.

Scroll down, and then you posted that two or three weeks later she was supporting Steve Forbes. Can't she make up her mind,or was she trying to curry favor with Buchanan by wearing his button?
