Sarah Palin book buyer on Obama: He isn't governing...He's trying to convince us that he's doing a good job. He hasn't done anything except spend money,"

Another person in line " We need Sarah. She will uphold the constitution" (Obama won't?)

And these statements are mild compared with those made by the Palin audiences during the campaign. And all those socialist accusations and Hitler signs in the tea party events. One sign claimed "ACORN stole election" Then, we have the crazy birthers, and those warning of death panels and claiming that the health care reform bill is more of a threat than terrorists. These all remind me of fellow citizens who believed that Saddam Hussein was behind the 9-11 attacks. And those who deny evolution.

What is wrong with America where we can have seemingly grown-up people think and behave so irrationally? A failure of our educational system? The media? It's baffling and disturbing. Malcolm Gladwell traced the roots of violence county. Maybe he can explain this deficiency to us.
