I’ve slammed Palin for several years here on FR, attracting the displeasure of a good number of Freepers in the process. I’ve been quick to label her a “lightweight,” and did so just last week in fact.
But something has changed. I’m still in the process of re-evaluating her as I write tonight, but I can say this much. The letter she wrote to her family, a letter that was intended for their private consumption only, about the imminent birth of a son she knew to be a Down’s baby, is without question one of the most moving, sensitive and insightful testaments I’ve ever read. I could not have written that letter. She showed writing skill and ability that amazed me. The letter was masterfully done in the voice of the Creator, and every word shined out with love and wisdom.
Sarah Palin is not a lightweight, and I will never use that term to refer to her again.
I had written her off during the reality show thing - especially when she hosted Kate Gosselin.
This bus tour was interesting - the way she was sticking it to the media.
The Paul Revere thing was hysterical.
And then the press thinks they’ve REALLY got her with the e-mails right?
Not only do they shed light on what a good governor she was - it’s happening side-by-side the Weiner scandal.
The contrast couldn’t be brighter!
Yeah - I’m back in her camp now. I’d still like to see Paul Ryan throw his hat in too.
Hats off to you for admitting your were wrong. Too many people just cannot bring themselves to do that preferring to dig in and make themselves appear stupid when obviously wrong.
Welcome home, pilgrim.
Ping....be sure to read #26
I sure would like to read this letter. How can I find it?
I admire you for doing that posting and for admitting that you may have misjudged her. ...Good on ya!
What you have done in admitting you were mistaken is something that few people ever do, to the very great detriment of the political discourse specifically, and the Country in general. Good on ya.
