There's a joke that goes something like this. Sarah Palin is being interviewed on the air when a small seaplane crashes into Lake Lucille. Sarah immediately runs across the water and saves the life of the pilot without thought for her own safety. The next day, the headline in major newspapers is "Sarah Palin Can't Swim"! The LSM can and will continue to report anhy of her accomplishments in a twisted fashion. If you enjoyed that, keep reading because Wes Vernon of the Washington Times has "hit the nail on the head with his assessment of Sarah Palin's ability to get her message across in her Facebook postings and in her books. ~Jackie~
Sarah Palin has read the writings of such intellectual giants as Milton Friedman, Alexis de Tocqueville and Whittaker Chambers and such historical leaders as Abraham Lincoln, John F. Kennedy, Ronald Reagan and Margaret Thatcher.
In "America by Heart: Reflections on Family, Faith and the Flag," she cites the published letters between John and Abigail Adams in this nation's infancy as well as the speech of Calvin Coolidge (probably one of America's most underrated presidents) on the occasion of this nation's 150th birthday.
Such displays of research and knowledge are not likely to prevent critics from disparaging her intellectual heft. Indeed, one is left to wonder if they would credit Mrs. Palin's gravitas if she were to author her own comprehensive encyclopedia blindfolded and without notes or research material at hand. More
