Her Finest Hour of 2010: Gov. Palin kneels and comforts a diaper-clad infant suffering from cholera.
Governor Palin could have easily made a foreign trip to bolster her political aspirations, like some haters are ridiculously alleging she did by going to Haiti. As the 2012 Presidential campaigns will start to spool up over the next two months, a visit to Margaret Thatcher and/or Bibi Netanyahu would have been the vehicle to build her foreign policy credentials. Last week, rumors were swirling that Gov. Palin was visiting the former British Prime Minister. We, at US for Palin hope that she will in the early part of next year visit both Margaret Thatcher and Bibi Netanyahu.
Gov. Palin is in Haiti, helping bring, aid supplies, and simple joy to victims of a cholera outbreak. This is not the first time, Gov. Palin has extended her generosity to Haiti. In March 2010, she donated $1750 to the Red Cross. On January 14, 2010, she asked supporters via Facebook Note and Tweets to donate $10 to Haiti relief efforts by texting a number to the Red Cross.
The Palin Airlift of 2009
In 2009, Gov. Palin’s finest hour was that moment when she knelt before a small Eskimo girl and took her in her arms. Gov. Palin sacrificed the CPAC annual meeting and instead organized an airlift with Samaritan’s Purse bringing food and supplies to distressed villages in remote sections of Alaska. She personally distributed supply packages, stopping only when every villager had one.
