“Bless Your Heart”

I came across this article about another woman’s (an amputee) experience at a recent Sarah Palin rally in Virginia Beach on October 13. Please take this time to read it. From everything I’ve read and seeing her interact with folks in Laconia, Sarah Palin is the real deal.

Money quote:

What I wish I’d been able to tell her is that the major reason I consider her a hero is the way she stands in stark contrast to the false compassion of our day, in which otherwise good people believe love means trying to eliminate suffering by doling out death like it’s the ultimate gift.

    Though I respect your opinions and am glad that different ones exist, I don’t see how being a compassionate person makes anyone qualified to lead our country. Sure, it’s one aspect I want in a president, but I also expect immense intelligence and a comprehensive world view. I just don’t see how Palin fits in the White House.

  2. You assume that Palin does not have immense intelligence and a comprehensive worldview. That’s your opinion and so be it. A man who can not count how many letters are in “JOBS” doesn’t seem to be an example of “immense intelligence.” But that’s just my opinion.

  3. What a wonderful article! Really moving.

    Governor Palin’s authenticity stands in stark contrast to either of the other tickets’ candidates, and I think that’s one of the things that draws so many people to her. And as for selecting one’s candidates for their intelligence and “comprehensive worldview” (one can safely assume, I think, that words like “cosmopolitan” and “post-nationalist” could be substituted here), had Sen. Obama not possessed certain physical “traits”, which have nothing to do with either worldview or intelligence, his nearly complete lack of experience, distinction or accomplishment in academia, law, or politics would have disqualified him before the Democrat primaries were half finished.

    The cynicism alleged behind Sarah Palin’s selection pales in comparison to the selection of “The One” for his ethnicity and eloquence, and Joe “Running Gaffe” Biden for his “experience” to round out the former’s lack of it.
