Sarah Palin’s latest campaign endorsement: Uber-nut Star Parker, a Worldnutdaily columnist running for Congress from California. Just how nuts is Parker? RightWingWatch provides only a tiny sample of the lunacy she spews:
When she is not delivering fiery speeches at right-wing conference, Parker has been busy suing the White House over its efforts to rebut misinformation regarding health care reform and warning that marriage equality in Washington DC would lead to the spread of HIV and was akin to thinking “that serving up another glass of wine is the way to help a drunk” all while declaring that “it should concern every American as we watch our nation’s capital city transform officially into Sodom.”
So naturally, Palin loves her some Star Parker:
I’m proud to endorse Star Parker for California’s 37th Congressional District. Star has an incredible story and a passionate commitment to her community and our great nation. Rising up from being a single mom on welfare, Star worked hard to build a non-profit network that seeks to reduce poverty and create a brighter future for America by promoting free market solutions and personal responsibility. There is no doubt that she will bring a new level of enthusiasm and energy to Washington for American values, limited government, and economic growth. She’s a dynamic leader who is committed to building a more prosperous environment for the families in her district and ushering in positive change. Please join me in supporting Star and her message of hope, opportunity, and self-reliance.
Only if you count ignorance and bigotry as “American values” — as, to be fair, I’m sure Palin does.
