Sarah Palin has been subject to relentless attacks on her intelligence, her abilities, her personality and traits as well as attacks on her family ever since her name was released as a candidate for VP of the United States. She has been so vilified by the media that they will take anyone's word as authority. Levi Johnston (aka Ricky Hollywood (gag)) was on Entertainment Tonight or the Insider - one of those sensationalist rags- saying Mrs Palin is a diva who puts herself first before anyone else. It seems to me that a woman who chooses life for her downs baby as well as works hard, demanding jobs, hunts and fishes is anything but a diva.
Why is she so feared and hated? She appears to be a woman of common sense, a rare thing these days. She appears to be a woman of integrity, faith and morals who cares more about doing a job right than toeing the party line. She does what she says she will do. She is gracious and positive in the face of the barrage of insulting garbage that has been flung at her.
The United States could have done worse. We certainly have worse now. We are the ones who lost the election, not Senator McCain and Governor Palin.
