As we all know, people in power do not care for community organizers because they know they are threatened. The corporacrats of the GOP will not go down without fighting, using every means they can. Senator Obama represents everything they fear - non-whites and every other sort of NOKD ("not our kind, dearie") organizing to improve their lives by standing up to their economic "masters" and demanding an end to exploitation.
Governor Palin, who is feeling very empowered these days, is IMNSHO a tool of the power-brokers, just as Pilate was a tool of Roman imperial might. But she will do all she can to squash teh threat.
