Sarah Palin Throws Her Scientologist Adviser Under the Bus - 2009-05-19
Scientologist macher John Coale hatched a crazy plan to forge an alliance between Hillary Clinton and Sarah Palin, Politico reported this morning. In a rare—solitary?—display of good judgment, Palin turned him down.
Coale proposed the idea in February, while tagging along with his wife, Fox News' Greta van Susteren, to Alaska to shoot a promo for the Palins. He wanted Palin's political action committee—the creation of which Coale had masterminded—to make a symbolic $5,000 donation to the Clinton campaign to help her retire her debt.
Coale also tried to set up a meeting between Palin and Bill Clinton, which seems like an insane thing to do if the idea was to get Hillary to like Sarah. The meeting never took place, which is just as well, because the Palins are preposterously fertile and she would almost certainly have gotten pregnant.
