Samaritanís Purse: The Palins Pitch In
conservatives4palin ^ | 05/03/11 | Doug Brady

The Palins were in Alabama today helping out with disaster relief in the wake of last week’s killer tornado outbreak. Via Samaritan’s Purse:

Todd Palin, four-time winner of the Iron Dog off-road snowmobile race across Alaska, along with his wife, former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin, joined Samaritan’s Purse volunteers to help tornado victims in Birmingham, Alabama, on Wednesday.

“I came here to work hard,” Todd said. “There’s no point in being here if you’re not going to work hard.”

After getting a safety briefing and talking with volunteers, the Palins joined a crew helping homeowner J.L. Price recover from the storm. They help haul off brush and debris, and, with the rest of the team, prayed with Mr. Price.

“It feels great to be working out here,” Sarah said. “I hope more people sign up with Samaritan’s Purse so they can be blessed like I am today.”

The Price home took a direct hit from a tornado, and sustained a lot of damage.

“It’s hard to imagine anyone surviving this,” Todd said. “What a terrifying time it must have been for them. This just really gets you.”

While going through the debris, Todd found a wooden plaque bearing the Price name and nailed it to a tree, one of the few things remaining standing on the property.

This is the third time the Palins have participated in Samaritan’s Purse relief efforts.

In December, Todd, Sarah, and daughter Bristol joined Franklin Graham for a two-day visit to Haiti. They surveyed our work with cholera patients, handed out Operation Christmas Child shoe box gifts to children, and visited a shelter community Samaritan’s Purse built in the aftermath of the January earthquake.

In 2009, the governor and 2008 vice-presidential nominee joined Graham to hand out food parcels to families in Alaskan villages facing hunger because of a harsh winter.

“I appreciate their willingness to bring hope to people in need,” Graham said

Even though photos were taken, the Palins didn’t do this for a photo op, unlike someone who shall remain nameless, and only does things if a camera is on hand to make himself look good.

It wasn’t a photo op? Then why the announcement? Why the link to the photos?

If you look at Sarah Palin, she’s certainly not dressed for a photo op.

Photo ops are pretend and pretentious.

Work gloves and a long sleeve baggy shirt are a far cry from a staged photo op.

Sarah isn’t that much younger than I am, but it wears me out just trying to keep up with where and what Sarah is doing.

Tell you what, you start a Thread that says “Sarah and Todd Palin went to Alabama for a Photo Op”. That way, you won't bother the folks on this thread that appreciate the Palin’s efforts to help those less fortunate.

Since you seem to think there is no sincerity in their actions, please detail all those times that they showed up for a picture and took the next stagecoach out of Dodge.

Perhaps you can start with the photo of Sarah Palin's personal hairdresser fixing her bangs in Haiti. You know, the one that looked exactly like Sarah's daughter.

That's just my take on your cheap shot, but I certainly could be wrong about your motivations.

further if you bothered to read the story posted it was released by

Samaritan’s Purse. I would imagine as a fund raising tool to raise funds to help the people of AL.

Gov Palin made no release, she did not as far as I know give any interviews except to Samaritan’s Purse.
