Sarah Palin's reading list

In her acceptance speech for the VP nomination, Palin quoted fascist writer Westbrook Pegler on the moral superiority of small towns. Palin either didn't know or didn't care that Pegler is also an avowed racist who once suggested that Robert F. Kennedy should be assassinated. When Kennedy was contemplating his own run for the presidency in 1965, Pegler expressed his fervent hope that "some white patriot of the Southern tier will spatter his [Kennedy's] spoonful of brains in public premises before the snow flies."

As Robert F. Kennedy, Jr., notes, "It might be worth asking Governor Palin for a tally of the other favorites from her reading list."
