Though touched upon in yesterday's Day Around the Bay, we thought we'd share it with you in a separate post since it's a peek inside the heart of the former VP candidate cum proverbial whore for the blind far-right, Sarah Palin, and some of her not-so-merry band of Tea Party members.

"In the 8 years I've been in the capital, I've not seen, at least directed at me, this amount of hate and what's surprising to me is how open people are about those messages," said Yee.
