Blog author Ron Devito was physically present at the IGHL proceeding, though only one pool camera was in the room in which Governor Palin spoke.

Governor Palin’s interview with Sean Hannity regarding Obama’s policies took place at the IGHL gala and was documented here.
Over the past few days, Governor Palin’s accomplishments centered on command and foreign policy experience. While she is in Kosovo, this is a good time to take a pause and reflect on her accomplishments at her home front and how they affect us as a civilized society.
There are still many people out there who regard Governor Palin’s carrying of Trig to term as being “immoral” and much of the hatred directed at her ultimately has its root there. After all, fully 90% of mothers abort upon learning their child will have Downs Syndrome. The additional care required for someone with Downs is — well — inconvenient — and there is a bit of eugenics motivating the rallying call for pre-natal euthanasia. “you don’t bring that into the world,” the refrain goes.” People who speak like this are no different from the Nazis (National Socialists) who had a massive program to breed out imperfections in their attempt to form a “master race.”
Governor Palin reminds us through her actions that human life is precious and sacred. We are at a point in our development that we should be abandoning infanticide and breeding for some standard of perfection. The ancient Greeks and Chinese would leave baby girls and those deemed less than perfect on a hilltop to die. Those who regard Governor Palin’s decision as “immoral” are not too far removed from advocating this practice.
We determine how civilized a society is by how it treats its weak and vulnerable — whether that be innocent children; those with special needs, whether born that way or made that way through accident or illness; and our elderly. In fact, the last 15 seconds of this video show Governor Palin saying exactly that:
Governor Palin defends the innocent, weak and vulnerable in our society. Those who regard that position as “immoral,” and those who use baby Trig as means of insulting or sullying her are the face of pure, unadulterated evil and are advancing an agenda rooted in same.
A colleague of this author’s once had a product line which said, “Sarah Palin: Heart of a Warrior. Soul of an Angel.” As we’ve seen this past week — those words are 100% accurate.
