I know her parents and they’re great people. I also voted for her for governor of Alaska because of my regard for her parents but would never vote for her in a race for a national office because she’s a neo-con. I do think she did an excellent job for the State of Alaska until a weird Alaska law allowed her to be sued over and over by the same person for trivial garbage. Neither the state nor Palin could afford to defend the lawsuits before the law could be changed so she resigned. Even though she’s religious right, she signed a law giving State of Alaska gay employees partners rights to the partner’s medical care and pensions. Most religious right folks would have vetoed that out of hand. Not Palin, she did what the voters of Alaska wanted rather than follow her beliefs. She isn’t as bad as the MSM portrays her.
