One of the things we love about Gov. Palin is that, unlike many politicians, she has her priorities in the right order: family first, politics second. Unfortunately, this has brought up a debate (especially among social conservatives) about whether motherhood and leadership should be mutually exclusive. Obviously, we believe that they should not, and the Governor is consistently proving that they don't have to be (see picture below). Hence, I would like to link you to what I consider to be a very important column by one of the leading behind-the-scenes voices in our movement...my mom (who happens to author a blog on homeschooling).
Now, to be clear, I am not linking this post because my mommy wrote it. I'm linking it because she has an EXTREMELY unique perspective on Gov. Palin which I have not seen ANYWHERE on the net, and I have been encouraging her to write it down for some time. You see, Mom is a devoutly religious, stay-at-home, homeschooling mother. Basically, she's cut from the same cloth as many of the people who are saying that Palin should not even be in politics, let alone running for Vice President. Yet, she is very supportive of our movement, and has written (to the best of my knowledge), the first BIBLE BASED argument for why Gov. Palin should be our next Vice President. Regardless of who wrote it, I consider this opinion to be a must-read for any religious conservative.
