Labor Pain

Labor Pain

Okay, so last Friday morning, we all woke up and most of us had never heard of Sarah Palin. What a rollercoaster weekend it became. Not only did Palin get shot into the spotlight and become the Republican VP nominee, but we also learned a lot about her professional and personal life that the GOP probably isn’t thrilled about. If you’re just catching up, here’s what you may have missed over the holiday weekend:


Palin may or may not have wrongfully fired Alaska’s chief public safety officer this July.

Palin may or may not have been nearly recalled as Mayor of Wasilla, Alaska in 1997.

Palin may or may not share a lot of business and politics with controversial Alaskan Senator Ted Stevens.

Palin may or may not have supported Barack Obama’s energy plan.

Palin may or may not have only met John McCain one time before he called on her to offer the VP nomination.

Palin may or may not support the secession of Alaska.

Palin’s newborn son may or may not actually be hers.

The one thing that has been confirmed over the weekend about Palin’s background: her 17-year-old unmarried daughter is pregnant. The hardcore Christian right may or may not ignore that.

We are two months away from the Presidential election. Is that enough time for Sarah Palin to clean up her image and earn the trust of America?
