The link between Sarah Palin and witch-hunts is pretty real: the guest pastor who prayed to protect her from witch-craft at her old church had, by his own account, incited a mob in Kenya against a 'witch', who he drove out of town after her pet snake was killed (as a 'demon'). After that story, it turns out the woman is still in the town, and never had a snake; but the culture that will proudly claim to have raised a mob is still interesting - as is a church that will bring along that kind of preacher as a guest.
