Sarah Palin - Smart, Successful, Beautiful, Strong, and BRAVE!

I heard Hugh Hewitt read this on the air today...

But [Palin's dad] Chuck has seen his daughter handle herself in other perilous situations and come out all right. A few years ago, he watched her pilot husband Todd Palin's commercial fishing boat in a storm. Todd was working at his oil-field job on the North Slope, and Palin and her father had been fishing on Bristol Bay. "It was the toughest work I've ever done, and it wasn't only hard, it was dangerous," Chuck says. At the end of the run, they had to get the boat on a trailer amid crashing surf. As cold, metallic-sheened waves tossed the trawler around, Chuck quailed.

"I'm not doing that," he said.

"Get out of the way," Palin said. "I'll do it."

She did.

Now, I know how hard that must have been. It's a nontrivial event getting a boat loaded up on a trailer in calm lake waters let alone a raging storm on the ocean!

That and the story about a grizzly in the car are in Sally Jenkins Washington Post article, Palin's Strengths Rooted in Alaska. Read it all!

Sarah Palin was clearly raised by parents who loved her enough to teach her to take care of herself in the most hazardous situations. God Bless the Heath family!
