People have asked me today what I think of Sarah Palin. I watched her speech last night. I listened. I chewed on it. I guess since she's a "Special Needs Mom" I am suppose to identify with her. I so do not. Well for 1 she has a child with Down Syndrome and that is a whole different ball of wax than Cerebral Palsy. 2. I am a mom of a special needs child 24/7. She is not. She has a day job and what appears to be lots of help.
I don't think she is going to be on our side. I don't feel that she will speak for us. This is not her platform and why should it be. I think it's a card she didn't want to pull but she did how could she not?
I dislike her for several reasons and I like her for a few (her hubby would be nice to look at for the next few years and can't you see him and Cindy McCain hookin up? No. Maybe just me)
but the fact that she is the "mother" of a special needs child doesn't do a thing for me.
I leave you with some of Rob's words. I think he says it best. A long read for some but so so worth it.
Great job Rob.
