Sarah Palin hypocrisy watch

The former Republican vice presidential candidate agrees with a suggestion that President Obama’s role in convincing BP to create a $20 billion escrow fund to compensate victims of the company’s disastrous oil leak in the Gulf of Mexico is a step on the slippery slope to American Nazism.

Just a month ago, former Gov. Palin was accusing Obama of not acting forcefully enough on the oil leak because of his supposed closeness to BP and other oil companies. And as governor of Alaska, she managed to extract quite a lot of money from oil companies in increased taxes.
