Sarah Palin could be the most genuine, real politician I ever met

Canada Free Press’ (CFP’s)  Judi McLeod had the honour to meet former vice-presidential candidate Governor Sarah Palin and her husband, Todd at a sold-out dinner in Hamilton last night.

American friends knowing about the event sent me messages asking me to tell Gov. Palin how much they admire her.

Noting how the former vice-presidential candidate had told the Hamilton crowd that Americans she encounters often mistake her for a Canadian because of her distinctive manner of speech, the Globe and Mail said, “People think she talks like us.”

I attended the event thinking that perhaps Gov. Palin was getting a little full of herself, but I was wrong.

Sarah Palin could be the most genuine, real politician I ever met.

If only more politicians could be more like the down to earth Sarah Palin, we’d all be better off for it.

Michigan CFP reader Hank Tinkham wanted me to convey to Sarah Palin how much he and other Americans respect and admire her, which I couldn’t do. 

But Mr. Tinkham can now consider his message delivered.
