Why Sarah Palin?

If you're not a fan, which I'm not, you have to wonder what it is ... why do old guys like Pat Buchanan and John McCain and more than a few others keep saying they want her to be president?

Well, maybe this quote from Edward Whittemore's Sinai Tapestry sheds some light on it. (Whittemore was a covert CIA agent, his cover being a reporter for The Japan Times. He did that for about 10 years before writing 5 amazing novels*.)

"...they were appalled by Strongbow's assertion that any military expedition was merely a disguised sexual sickness, more specifically a profound fear of impotence... Thus armies were raised, he said, because it was likely their raisers could raise nothing else."

Quin's Shanghai Circus (1974)

The Jerusalem Quartet:
Sinai Tapestry (1977)
Jerusalem Poker (1978)
Nile Shadows (1983)
Jericho Mosaic(1987)

Jonathan Carroll (amazing in his own right) raved bout Whittemore, saying "He ... taught you how to see the world with different eyes, a different heart, and best of all, made your soul grow."
