I was reading the above article [from October 2008] again and this paragraph really stands out in reference to Sarah's detachment from her family and how it's always about her. Just read what her sister says below and then remember she was saying this when her son was 13 yrs. old. Didn't Sarah have a clue as to what her sister was going through all those years? Why should she have to suddenly explain things to her now that she is Governor? I realize that Palin wasn't in a titled position prior to this where she could actually effect policy changes that might help her nephew but it's sad to see that she was blind to their troubles and unaware of what they actually were. She should have known what her sister was going through because she was her sister, no other reason.
Of course, it's always all about Sarah and in trying to boost her sister's image, Heather made it quite clear that Sarah was far removed from what she went through in dealing with a special needs child. It's not surprising, though, considering she never met a relative of Todd's until her TV show and he had Down Syndrome. It was a first cousin of Todd's, you would think they would have crossed paths at some time during the years they had been married. Right? Wrong! It just gives more credence to all of the people who talk about Sarah and her incredibly selfish attitude. She uses people and then discards them. Obviously Todd's cousin or her nephew were not needed prior to her running for office or her TV show, depending on the situation.
Here is the Heather email, and some Sarah reactions (in reverse order, because it's an email chain):
.Thanks for caring? Wishful thinking, Heather?
