When we were little, we loved our parents and thought they could do no wrong. We thought Dad was smart enough to be the President of the United States, and mom was kind enough to be a saint. As we grew older we began to realize that our parents probably weren’t perfect. Dad wasn’t as smart as we thought, and mom wasn’t as kind as we perceived. We loved them just the same. We probably realized that mom was smarter than we thought and dad was kinder than we thought. As adults we appreciate that as much as we love our parents, they probably shouldn’t be leading the country…or even leading a small remote state as Governor, or a small remote town as Mayor. Dad might be a great science teacher, and a pretty good hunter, but he’s probably not well versed in international relations. Mom may be great at raising children and cooking the meat dad brings home from the hunt, but she probably isn’t competent in international deplomacy. Come to think of it she’s probably not an expert on Constitutional Law, Ecomomics, Political Science, Military Strategy, or Alternative energy. Certainly this would describe Sarah Palin’s parents. Her father Chuck was a science teacher, and her mother was a secretary at the school. Her mother had a highschool education. Sally Heath seems like a nice lady. She seems to be comfortable with a passive relationship with her daughter, and her husband. In no way am I intending to disparage Sally or stay at home mothers. However, Sally doesn’t have the experience, education, and leadership skills to make her competent to run for President. Only a child would perceive that she possessed the necessary characteristics to be the leader of the free world. Imagine Sally Heath with control of the nuclelar codes! Imagine Sally Heath trying to solve the crisis in Syria. Imagine Sally Heath standing up to terrorists threatening to cut off someone’s head.
In a lame attempt at humor, Sarah Palin posted note of happy birthday to her mother on her Facebook. Sarah said:
“You’ve probably seen in the news today that it’s someone special’s birthday. So…
Happy birthday to an iconic American woman who really should be the first female President of these United States.
This heroine’s integrity, independence, patriotism, healthy vitality, Christian faith, work ethic, commitment to her husband over all these decades, mothering and grandmothering skills (including the cookie-baking!) give every young woman a role model to emulate…”
Then in a subsequent post she said:
“Oh. Sorry. Not THAT gal’s birthday. This one!
Happy Birthday, Mom! Thank you for the lessons in commitment to Faith, Family & Freedom. We love you!
Family & Freedom. We love you!
The Whole Tribe”
Notice that all the people in all three photos are wearing the same clothes and hair styles are identical. The saddest thing is that the picture of Sally in Trump’s gold emblazoned apartment with Melania makes Sally look totally out of place and painfully uncomfortable. Sally and Melania are both wearing white, but that is where the similarities begin and end.
