Chuck Hurley, president of the Iowa Family Policy Center, said that Palin has “intense charisma that makes her very exciting and attractive” and that she “will be a force.”After using phrases like "massive book tour" and "contentious state of American political discourse", and the whole paragraph for the U of I professor, I noticed that they link to the professor, but not the guy from the Iowa Family Policy Center. They have a website, so that's no excuse.
“Watch who the left hates the most – that is somebody with high potential,” says Hurley. “They don’t shoot their bullets at someone who is not a threat to them.”
University of Iowa professor Ken Leicht, author of “The Post-Industrial Peasant,” views the current economic crunch as a key reason why so many are willing to fill a fear of the unknown with conspiracy theories regarding rampant gun-control laws, American cities being turned into massive concentration camps and even death panels for the elderly.
“We have the perfect storm for some pretty uncivil political activity,” he says.
I find it odd that the original article from the Guardian didn't link to either fellow, but the Iowa Independent decided one deserved a link and the other didn't.
I'm sure there was no intent there, absolutely none.
