Part 2 of 2: Sarah Palin Loved Tanveer Ahmad Until She Changed Her Mind

Joe Wurzelbacher thought this might be his cue to invite William Kristol to meet his family. He admitted that his mother would have a problem with him dating someone close to his own age. Joe Wurzelbacher brought William Kristol's hat to the office.

William Kristol distracted Sarah Palin by urging her to select bathroom tiles for their new house.

"Tanveer Ahmad went to immigration headquarters in Manhattan," William Kristol said, "and was delivered in shackles to the Monmouth County Correctional Institute in Freehold, N.J. His Texas misdemeanor had popped up in the computer as an offense involving a deadly weapon -- reason enough, after 9/11, for authorities to detain him pending deportation proceedings."

"These Troops and their important missions," Sarah Palin said, using two chairs for physical therapy, "those are truly the worthy causes in this world and should be the public priority with time and resources and not this local/superficial, wasteful political bloodsport."

Three weeks later, Tanveer Ahmad was dead.

Since Tanveer Ahmad had no known health problems, his friends were shocked and disbelieving. They were told that Ahmad had suffered a heart attack in the jail, and despite all efforts to revive him, had been pronounced dead in a hospital emergency room at 5:51 p.m. on Sept. 9.

An autopsy cited "occlusive coronary atherosclerosis."

"His friends did not know that the jail had a history of detainee complaints of medical neglect and physical abuse, and did not allow guards to send detainees to the medical unit without prior approval," Joe Wurzelbacher said. He sat next to William Kristol on the sofa.

"According to the jail’s internal investigation, Tanveer Ahmad walked into the medical unit shortly after 3:50 p.m. on Sept. 9 and 'was seen immediately,'" William Kristol said. "But a letter scrawled by a fellow inmate contended that before he showed up there, Tanveer Ahmad's pleas for treatment had been rebuffed by a guard for an hour."

"I loved Tanveer Ahmad," Sarah Palin said. "It was just, once the World Trade Center came down, I changed my mind."

It was tough to read the article, I know, but thanks for the link. I got through it remembering how Sarah Palin disqualified every rundown till it stammered inexpressibly shallower each time Putin reared his head and came into the air space of the great history of America.
