Subject: Palin and the kids
Although I'm firmly for the Obama ticket it does sadden me that Palin is being attacked for taking her kids with her on trips. I give her props for her commitment to her family, and yes if one is elected I believe you should be able to lead with your kids. We are not the most progressive country on practical family rights, only on conservative christian family rights. This does need to change. I sure as heck don't want her as V.P. but I'll give her all the credit in the world for looking after her kids.
Thanks for writing Pat. I also have no problem with the children of Gov. Palin traveling with their Mom for whatever reason. I believe kids need their Mom even if she is a governor. I have a problem when Gov Palin changes government documents and lies about the role of her children in the very same month she is chosen to be McCain's running mate.
AP article snip:
AP also reported that Palin ordered
the children's travel expense forms changed in August to add language claiming
that they performed official state business on the trips.
Alaska law allows
governors to charge the state for their family's travel if they conduct state
business. State Finance Director Kim Garnero said the governor's staff has the
authority to make that determination.
But event organizers told the AP they were surprised when the girls showed up, and some said they had no role.
My, my, my she's caught in another lie.
Isn't this a more important news story than the GOP spending $150K on field dressing Sarah Palin?

and a pirate spokesman warned Thursday if the ship was attacked by NATO forces
its 20-man crew would be among those killed.
Spokesman Sugule Ali also mocked comments by Tomex Team, the firm operating the MV Faina cargo ship, which said it has accumulated only $1 million toward the $20 million ransom the pirates initially demanded.
"That is worthless," he said. "It would only pay for several nights' stay in a hotel!"
Thank you, Jay!
I hope you had a good time today.
