The Palin Kool-Aid Crowd

The similarities between those who actually (want to?) believe that Sarah Palin is qualified to be a heartbeat from the Presidency, and those who willingly (mainly) drank the grape Kool-Aid (technically, it was “Flavor Aid”) in Jonestown Guyana, back in 1978, are more than a little scary.  Both involve(d) a level of brainwashing that boggles the mind!  The folks in the “Peoples Temple Agricultural Project” were made to believe that Jim Jones was the Messiah, and that he was leading them to the promised land.  The people who support Ms. Palin do so with the same kind of religious fervor, and a general lack of rationality.  The people in Jonestown were willing to sacrifice their lives, and the lives of their children, in order to reach their brand of Nirvana.  I don’t think that most of the Palin-ites have seriously thought through where She might take them.  Saradise?    But, I do hope that they have considered their children.

Like with cyanide, and most other poisons, there is an antidote for the Palin-ites.  You really can’t afford to wait too long to take it.  But, first you have to realize that you’ve been poisoned.

    Saradise? It works. Excellent letter and good metaphor Jim Jones). Knowing how you usually take no prisoners, there actually might be a chance for survival here for the kool-aid drinkers, and I’m glad for them. Some of them are my western relatives and are nice people. I feel a little protective of them even if they won’t return my calls any longer.

    I’ve been toying with the Jim Jones – grape koolaid – analogy pretty much from when I first heard how positively she was accepted by the McCain backers. I’ve had the picture for over a week, along with a bunch of others from the rally in Anchorage. When I finally decided to post it, with a blurb, I came upon the “Saradise Lost” post, on Philip Munger’s blog. So, the “Saradise” credit goes to Phil.
