Oh, no you don’t….

Forgive me for speaking out of turn Governor Palin:

I understand that part of the package of stimulus funds you’ve chosen to reject includes funds for education…which includes, as a subset, funding for the education of children with disabilities…

Didn’t your baby with Down’s Syndrome figure prominently in the campaign as a great plus for you when you said: “Parents of children with special needs will have an advocate in the White House?”

I do remember you saying it and I also remember telling people at the time “Hey, criticize her for what she *doesn’t know* about foreign policy or [as it turned out] the reading habits she didn’t have,,,…but not about her choice to have a child with cognitive impairment.

I take back the points I gave you.  If you call yourself any kind of advocate for parents of and children with disabilities in Alaska…rethink your position.
