Another case of what appears to be Sarah Palin Derangement Syndrome has reared its head. Juan Cole at the liberal salon.com Web site has compared the former Alaska governor to Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.
Cole writes: "It is remarkable how similar they are... both are known for saying things that produce a classic Scooby-Doo double take in their audiences." Cole says the two are right-winged populists who: "claim to represent the little people against the wily and unscrupulous elites, and against pampered upper-middle-class yuppies pretending to be the voice of democracy."
Meantime, Saturday, an Alaskan blog claimed that Palin was getting a divorce and moving to Montana. But her spokeswoman, Meg Stapleton, wrote on Facebook: "Yet again some so-called journalists have decided to make up a story... the Palins remain married, committed to each other and their family, and have not purchased land in Montana."
One pro-Palin blog, Politik Ditto, says: "Even off the stage — liberals still attack." Another, Scared Monkeys, adds: The left just can't seem to get over Sarah Palin Derangement Syndrome... they can't even seem to leave her and her family alone — now that she is a private citizen."
