    What I have I done? :D

    It's also confirmed she supported Buchanan (in his third party bid) over Bush in 2000. She has a bit of a maverick streak. She also praised Ron Paul for his "individuality."

    HUH? she supported Forbes in 2000. She worked for Forbes. She wore a button for buchanon while he was in town to be nice. She put her money and efforts behind Stevie.
    Stand up for what is right, even if you have to stand alone.

    Thanks, Policon. I guess no one else read my post.
    This is bigger than presidential politics. This is a battle for America.

    She supported Forbes in the primaries, and supported Buchanan in the actual election, she thought Bush was too moderate.

    Edit: Actually there seems to be some confusion in which election Palin supported Buchanan.

    Wow, concrete information!
    "It's great for the base. I'm pretty sure she's a Buchananite!"

    Dude - hat link is hardly concrete evidence. It's hearsay.

    Well, that isn’t her only involvement in the third-party scene,apparently. Palin also recently sent a recorded video message to the Alaskan Independence Party at their 2008 convention, and it is rumored she attended at least one of them prior to being elected Governor.

    But the rabbit hole certainly doesn’t stop there. Sarah Palin was also a fundraiser for Buchanan in 1996 and a supporter of Pat Buchanan in his 2000 run for President with the Reform Party. In an Associated Press story from July 17, 1999, titled, “Buchanan takes conservative message to Fairbanks”:
    This part explains it:

    EDIT: Richard Winger has brought it to my attention that in July of 1999, Pat Buchanan was still seeking the nomination of the Republican Party, and would not make the switch to the Reform Party until October of that year. It is likely that Palin supported Buchanan as a Republican but not a Reformer.

    did you notice who the article quotes to prove that she was for him in 2000? The AP. Are you really going to say they are an unbiased and truthful source?

    ANYHOW - I LOVE that she's more about principles than she is about party. It's a plus in my book.
