Sarah Palin and The Real Witches of Wasilla

If Sarah Palin thinks that she’s an expert on Russia because Russia is 750 miles away from Wasilla, then you’d think Palin might be inclined to say something on the role of new spiritual alternatives like Wicca, given that Wiccans are living and working right in her home town. […]
