Back from South Korea, Sarah and Todd Palin appeared in Tupelo, Mississippi this weekend. Tupelo is a town of roughly 35,000 people and became famous as the birth place of Elvis. It wasn’t cute enough for Sarah to wear blue suede shoes to the event. She explained they were Bristol’s shoes, implying that she was “hip” enough that she could dress like her 20-year-old daughter.However the comment regarding the shoes was not the offensive part of Palin’s appearance.
- She and Todd appeared, leaving those precious children at home, once again, in Alaska. Nobody in Tupelo asked Ms. Palin who was meeting the special needs of Trig?
- Palin played the victim once again, saying:
“Everyone has challenges. Nobody’s road is easy. Everyone in your relationships, in your workplace, in your churches, in your neighborhoods, maybe within your own family, a health battle, maybe a battle trying to keep your home. Maybe somebody in your family [is] trying to keep a job,” “Everybody is going through battles; mine just happen to get exaggerated or just downright made up, and their splashed across a tabloid or [television show].”
It is not clear which tabloid she was talking about, but it is clear that she was the victim.
3. The conference was the “Extraordinary Women Association”. Sarah Palin is not an extraordinary woman. She is “Palin by Comparison.”
The article reporting on the story included a question and answer suggesting Palin was still considering running for President. The article reported:
“ Philadelphia, Mississippi resident Laura Renfrow was asked if she’d vote for Palin if the former Alaska governor ran for president.
“Yes, I would,” Renfrow said. “I hope she’ll run. I do.”
Will the pain never end?
