I don't know how the media could have missed such a loud dog whistle, but Matthew Cooper heard it too. Palin is aligning herself with the Jews-- poor persecuted Palin.
Some of us accuse Palin of using over the top political rhetoric (nothing compared to Glenn Beck's murder fantasies) and she claims she's being persecuted like the Jews.
Talk about chutzpah!
It's all about the Rapture, people.
"Here' s another theory of the case: The former Alaska governor was likely trying to send a signal to her evangelical Christian supporters who are, in fact, deeply pro-Israel (although many Jews are wary of their support for the Zionist state, seeing them as more interested in the Rapture than a healthy Jewish nation)."
