Sarah Louise Palin

Sarah Heath Palin was born on February 11, 1964 in Sandpoint, Idaho. The author of Going Rogue: An American Life (2009), Ms. Palin served for three years as governor of Alaska and was candidate for Vice-President in 2008. If you don't know at least this much about her, you have been living under a rock.

No matter what you think of her personality or her politics, you must recognize that she is somebody. No matter what your opinion may be, I will state that whether or not I agree with her opinions and positions, she has been and is being treated most unfairly by the press and the "liberal establishment." Debating political positions is inappropriate (because we are always right); ad hominem attacks on persons who disagree with you is okay, according to the doctrine these people practice (because if you disagree with us, you're an idiot). Of course, they don't have a monopoly on the technique.

Happy Birthday, Sarah.

And many happy returns.

She doesn't appear to fit the mold.

Andrea, thank you and Sitka. I shall accept with gladness.

Chuck, good to have some who do not fit the mold.
