Sarah Palin must not have seen 12 Years a Slave yet. The former Alaska governor said at a fundraising dinner Saturday night in Iowa that the federal debt shackles Americans like slavery. “Our free stuff is being paid for by taking money from our children and borrowing from China,” Palin said. “When that money comes due—and this isn’t racist, but it’ll be like slavery when that note is due. We are going to be beholden a foreign master.” Quick note, Sarah: saying “this isn’t racist” is like saying “I have a black friend.” Palin pandered to Iowans, saying they are “unpretentious, hardworking, humble, very candid.” Wonder which state has the first caucus in 2016?
