Dear Governor Palin By Jane Gilvary, For The Bulletin 10/30/2008
Dear Gov. Palin,
I am writing to you to apologize. I apologize for the way the mainstream media has treated you since Sen. John McCain chose you as his running mate. The scrutiny you have endured during this campaign is unimaginable, but you have handled it quite well. Sens. Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton and Joe Biden have been given free passes from the mainstream media while you have had to defend and explain everything from faith, to teen pregnancy, to foreign policy. I often wonder what it might be like for your children and your husband to watch the evening news and to hear how the leftists of mainstream news-making portray you as a "right wing nut job" whose only talent is shooting moose and riding snowmobiles. It must be frightening for your children to see news reports out of Philadelphia that protestors actually made T-shirts describing you in an abhorrently derogatory manner.
I apologize for the way Hollywood has slandered your name and portrayed you as a provincial hockey mom with a funny accent. I apologize that they fail to see your good nature, your intelligence, your forthrightness, and your ability to wear many hats as you balance civil service with family service.
I apologize for celebrities like Matt Damon, Pam Anderson and Madonna who pontificate on their world stage and claim to know more about government than you do. I am sorry that they think their celebrity status and a few starring roles gives them political omniscience. Your upright life has shined a light in places of darkness for them. In you they see morality, class, and dignity - things they don't have; therefore, they upbraid you any chance they get.
I apologize for the main stream media accusing you of banning books, asking you "gotcha" questions, and questioning who paid for your wardrobe. Instead, they should be asking you what you think of Barack Obama's links to Fannie Mae and the current mortgage crisis, or how drilling in ANWAR might ease our dependence foreign oil from Saudi Arabia, Venezuela, and Iran. They should ask you what you think of Palestinians setting up phone banks in Gaza to call Americans and urge them to vote for Barack Obama. They should ask you what you think of Hamas - a known terrorist, anti-American, anti-Israeli organization - supporting Sen. Obama.
I apologize that the mainstream media throws softball questions to Sen. Obama and then investigates who paid for your clothes or pries into your daughter's personal life. I apologize that the issues aren't at issue in this election, and it is largely because of news outlets like ABC, NBC, CBS, CNN and The New York Times.
I apologize that the mainstream media considers you a cog in a political machine. I consider you an intelligent woman, a patriot, a Christian and a wonderful person who would be ready to lead America should she be called upon to do so.
You are everything that true conservatives have been waiting for since Ronald Reagan and I apologize that America seems to hate you for that. You support traditional marriage and understand the gender roles of men and women. You defend my right to own a firearm to protect my home. You choose life. You believe in a strong national defense and your son serves in the U.S. Army. You believe a limited government serves its people better than one that over-taxes and overspends. You believe in strong families.
I am confident that you would uphold the Constitution and serve well as vice president of my country. I apologize that America continues to condemn you for these things. I apologize that liberals and elitists are frightened by all of these wonderful things about you.
Thank you, Sarah Palin, for putting America first.
Very truly yours, Jane Gilvary

Sarah is a big girl. She doesn’t need apologies.
Poor Jane - she may soon be unemployed...but not until the Left looks into her “record” and exposes personal information to the media.
I was thinking the same thing...
At this very moment, some Pennsylvania Democrat public employee lifer down at the DMV is typing “J-A-N-E G-I-L-V-A-R-Y” into a criminal and tax database search engine with two stubby fingers.
Hey, Jane... Say “Hi” to Joe the Plumber for me!
You’re so right...Sarah Palin is so are above the liberal whack jobs that are out to destroy her! She knows exactly who she is and what she stands for and that’s why conservatives love her and the liberal media despises her. Or should I say, they are scared to death of her.
That is what I love about her. She is not a whiner.
Any one who has the strength and humility to make an apology, diserves to be heard.
Palin, unlike you, would look upon this with grace and warmth.
As do I.
When Libtards pokes fun, lie about, demean and criticise SP, I get angry.
Yet SP continues to prove she has class, thus need not prove anything to me.
That the “O”, with 0% fortitude, gets a free pass, angers, sickens, and saddens me.
Part of America is ignorant, or just plain stupid. as for the C02 they exhale - at least the plant use it. Otherwise they’re not worth much else.
Go to abcnews.go.com and click on more videos. Endure the commercial, then look for the video titled "Palin . . .There's been . . . double." Asked about the clothes, the kids, why more women don't support her, etc.
Sarah represents everything I love about this great country. She inspires me unlike any politician ever has.
Liberals try to discout her as just a good looking empty headed moron. To me, I see someone who “gets it” more than any politician I have ever seen. These United States belong to we the people. We control our destiny. She knows who we are because she is one of us.
A woman who was a local sports reporter 20 years ago can be one heartbeat away from the Presidency. This is truly a great country.
Nice article, but you should do a search before posting. This was already posted earlier today.
I hate the posting police. Do you have a badge?
I dislike apologies given for third parties, especially when there is no evidence that the third parties are seeking forgiveness.
yes, I got it from the same assholes who do the same thing to me if I happen to repost something unintentionally.
