So, who is Sarah Palin?

We will hear much in the coming days and weeks about Sarah Palin. In her own words, she considered herself “an extreme longshot” to be chosen as John McCain’s pick for vice president. She is decidedly conservative and a strong family person.

After she had her fifth child this past April and the child was diagnosed as a Down syndrome child, this is what she said about how she and her husband felt about it:

“We’ve both been very vocal about being pro-life,” Governor Palin said. “We understand that every innocent life has wonderful potential.”

“I’m looking at him right now, and I see perfection,” Palin told the Associated Press. “Yeah, he has an extra chromosome. I keep thinking, in our world, what is normal and what is perfect?”

One thought on “So, who is Sarah Palin?

  1. Knew she was on the list, but no idea who she is.

    I was surprised to see her at the head of the pack in the poll in this TechCrunch survey though (http://www.techcrunch.com/2008/08/29/fiorina-versus-whitman-who-would-make-a-better-vice-president/). TechCrunch readers are, from what I can tell, overwhelmingly Libertarian. Maybe the Alaska gal was a good choice to get some of the independent vote???

    Not that I care too much. I’m unabashedly apathetic when it comes to politics. Though I have to admit I did get quite excited about Ron Paul earlier this year . . .
