Sarah Palin as the Xena of the War Party

This what Justin Raimondo has to say:

Palin's role is the traditional one assigned to the vice president, as candidate and office-holder: she is the attack dog, in what will be a campaign very much concerned with foreign policy issues. Expect her to be the point-woman on the alleged threat represented by Russia: after all, it wasn't so long ago that the Alaskans suffered under the Czars' yoke, and, to add insult to injury, were sold to the Americans for a truly paltry sum. If I were an Alaskan, I'd resent that, and there's evidence Palin did, too: at least that's one explanation for her flirtation with the Alaska Independence Party, which advocates secession from the US. But her secessionist days are over, I believe: in the future she'll be attacking the secessionist Ossetians as Russian agents-of-influence and defending US intervention there, as in Iraq, as a mission divinely ordained.
