My dad posed the question "What has she [Sarah Palin] done to deserve such hatred?" Indeed, what has she done? Let's count the ways:
Ran for vice president? Geraldine Ferraro ran for vice president. Maybe the difference is that Ms. Ferraro was a democrat?
Didn't abort a 'defective' baby? Since when is this a crime? Some people have a great deal of respect for life no matter how imperfect it might be.
Is a drop dead gorgeous 40 something? Didn't know you had to be butt ugly to be a politician. Maybe it's another one of those deals where had she been a democrat everyone would love her.
Is a conservative? I strongly suspect that is the problem people have with her.
Her daughter had a baby out of wedlock? Talk about hypocrisy! One of my face book friends had a comment posted about Bristol Palin's performance that said "If her mother wasn't' famous she'd be dancing on a pole!" Really? Is that what you think about every girl who has had a baby outside of marriage or just her? What? Dancing with the stars is fan vote based. It can't be rigged so put that in your pipe and smoke it buddy. Think had she been a democrat everyone would be singing her praises? you betcha!
Is it that she hunts? Probably that too.
Is it that she wields a gun quite well? Heaven forbid the little woman should be able to defend herself instead of waiting on the big bad cops or feds to come rescue her.
I want to know what is wrong with people? What happened to take care of yourself because no one else will? No such thing as a free lunch? Stand on your own two feet? (yeah yeah, figuratively speaking) Want it done right do it yourself? Own your own responsibilities?
Do you not understand you are where you are in life because of the choices you made? Own your choices. Stand on your own two feet already because I'm tired of carrying you!
As big a mess as our elected government has made of things, no one party is more guilty than the other, do you really want them governing how you spend your money, what, if, and when you can eat, what health care you deserve to receive and when or if you receive it? Get a clue people! Every time you demand someone else's rights be infringed upon you lose some of your own freedom. If the government can do it to 'the rich' they will do it to you too.
Sarah Palin will be the least of your worries. Whether or not Bristol Palin remains on Dancing with the Stars won't matter in a year's time. what matters is what you're willingly signing over to the government. Uncle Sam isn't your big brother, he's becoming your worst enemy and you're blindly allowing it. Wake up. Get a clue.
