Finding Palin in a Game of Smoke and Mirrors
In the International Herald Tribune, Albert Hunt of Bloomberg News comments on how difficult it is to get clear answers from Gov. Palin, when her record is in direct contrast to what she suggests are her positions. An example:
"Her decision to have a Down syndrome child this year and pledge to be an advocate for families with special needs kids was inspiring for any family with such children. Why then did she veto a bill passed by the Alaska Legislature increasing funding for the Special Olympics?"
And I'll ask again -- what does she think are the challenges that these families face, and how does she plan to be an advocate and friend?
