Hopefully I'm wrong. It almost seems like your justifying the cruelty because she made money off it. That makes it alright.<quoted text>
Perception. We see what we need to see. You see a poor persecuted soccer mom. I see a gal who, if she's prudent, will never have to work another day in her life if she chooses, nor will her immediate family. Tooling around the nation in designer buses ain't cheap. Looks to me like she did quite well, working all sides of the "group" with brilliant results. A true American success story.
I'm sure the Palins thought it was a hoot when their 20 y/o daughter recieved death threats for going on DWTS.
I see Palin as someone who was asked to run on the VP ticket and accepted. Its sad to think that, that now can be seen as a bad thing and something not only the candidate should be mocked and ridiculed for years for, but her family also.
