Palin manages to suggest that Obama has a past that no-one has properly investigated, whilst inserting his middle name to emphasise his "otherness".
She's never been subtle, but this is tawdry, even by her low standards. It's part of an almost constant Republican theme to portray Obama as somehow not a "real American".
"Funny, Greta, we are learning more about Christine O'Donnell and her college years and her teenage years and her financial dealings than anybody ever even bothered to ask about Barack Hussein Obama as a candidate and now as our president," Palin said.
Palin added later that it is "fair to dig in somebody's past." She said that if the "lamestream media" did do that digging voters would "find out their associates and beliefs and what formed their beliefs."
