Tomorrow is the 7th anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks. It’s also the day Sarah Palin’s eldest son Track leaves for the Middle East.
And, as you’d expect, Sarah Palin has some big plans.
No, she won’t be quietly memorializing the nearly 3000 people who died in the attacks that day (or the 4155 US soldiers who have died in the war that followed).
And no, she won’t be taking the day off from politics to spend with her family, quiety (or not so quietly) praying that her son doesn’t end up injured or dead in Iraq like so many other mothers’ sons.
No, instead Sarah Palin will spend the day with TV anchor Charles Gibson and an ABC film crew.
Yes, my friends, Sarah Palin will spend tomorrow attempting to profit politically from America’s lingering trauma over the attacks of 9/11 while simultaneously exploiting one of her children for political gain.
It isn’t that she doesn’t mourn for the victims of 9/11. And it isn’t that she doesn’t love her son.
It’s just that she cares about her political career more.
And before anyone accuses me of being sexist by suggesting Ms. Palin should be at home with her kids, first think about how you’d answer this question:
If your first-born child was getting on a plane this afternoon and heading off to spend a year fighting in an active war zone in a foreign country, where would you be?
If today might possibly be the last time you ever saw your eldest child alive… would you bring in a film crew from ABC? Or would you spend a few quiet minutes alone with your family?
I’m not saying Sarah is a horrible woman or a horrible mother. I’m just saying she’s a horrible person.
