‘No books have ever been banned in Wasilla at the request of Sarah Palin, or anyone else.’

In the coming weeks, you’ll be hearing a lot of claims that Sarah Palin wants to ban books or burn librarians at the stake or some such nonsense. Confederate Yankee nukes the argument by checking with the Wasilla Library itself: “No books have ever been banned in Wasilla at the request of Sarah Palin, or anyone else. Further, only one of the five books challenged even occurred during her terms in office.”

The first objection from the comments section is that Palin still sought to replace the librarian, but note that even after the first librarian retired… no books were even challenged during Palin’s tenure. This is an absolute non-story.
