Mike Gravel praises Sarah Palin, pro-Obama hosts shocked
Former Alaska Senator Mike Gravel appeared in an interview with the staunchly pro-Obama Pacifica radio. They expected Gravel to bash Sarah Palin, and tell them what the Republicans "haven't told us about Sarah Palin." Sounds pretty ominous.
Instead of obliging, Gravel says nice things about Palin. And then takes a few shots at the Democrats for being "imperialists." Watch the video:
UPDATE: Check out Kalim's post above. Gravel had more nice things to say about Palin in a CounterPunch article. Hilarious.
UPDATE2: Welcome Little Green Footballs readers! You might also enjoy recent posts on the continuing violence against Christians in India here and how in Britain Greenpeace vandalism has now received the blessing of the government here. Please take a look around and come back soon!
UPDATE3: Now we're welcoming folks from the CSP Gun Talk Forum. Welcome. We're big fans of the right to own a gun both for hunting and for self-defense. That's pretty rare here in Canada.

It's refreshing hearing someone like Gravel talk. I don't agree on many things, but at least he can reason like an inteligent adult. The left of center media has descended to a 9th grade level. At this point I can relish them blowing the democrat's chance this year. I'll almost feel bad for Obama when that happens.

Agreed, Craig--it is nice to see this kind of a response from Gravel. He seems like a decent man who doesn't give a fig for partisan politics. Good for him.

Did you hear how rudely the cut him off and talk over him when he was attempting to answer their questions? Talk about having no journalistic integrity whatsoever.

This is the guy who should be the Leader of the US Libertarian party. I can't believe he was beat out by Barr.
And of course, "There's no censorship here!"
The MSM is one big happy conglomerate, telling you what to think and feeding you lies.

FreeAgent, you are a clueless clot.

The creator of the t-shirt is Rhiannon-Marie Volpe and most likely, she is FreeAgent. Her mug is in the original photograph (the ugly blonde) and in the group photo, she's on the far right.
