Hip, hip and hooray to Regina Brett of the Cleveland Plain Dealer for sharing the magnificient song of America's Heart that is Sarah Palin with her readers. Please tell Regina thank you for singing the praises of Sarah Palin. I know she wants to hear from other Palinites!
Sayeth beautifully Regina:
So, what kind of mother is Sarah Palin?
The kind people all over America can relate to.
A mom who joined the PTA to make the public schools better.
A mom who is sending her own son off to war. (How many governors, senators and Congress members have sent theirs?)
A mom who chose to have a baby others would have rejected as imperfect.
A mom who asked if we knew the difference between a hockey mom and a pit bull, then pointed to her face and said, "Lipstick."
A mom who married a fisherman/oil field worker who never finished college and looks clumsy in a suit.
A mom raising a flawed family, the kind we all have.
Women can relate to her. I know I can. It doesn't mean I'll vote for her, but I'm excited that she's one of our choices.
Like it or not, Palin proves there's more than one kind of feminist. That you don't have to be pro-choice to fit under that umbrella. That women can break ground for other women and still believe life starts at conception and is always a gift.
Those who criticize Palin for putting country first and family second should consider this: Men do it all the time, only when they do it, we call them heroes.
Bravo, Regina! For being a brave Palinite soldier in the war against her awesomeness.
