2. Excellent question
and since she is a public figure and a "patriot" and "great american" she should be forthcoming with her donations or nondonations. She's most likely taking the dittohead route, fuck em.

5. That's what I thought, too.
There an awful lot of sick and injured children in Haiti, not to mention the orphans. You'd think Palin would be doing at least something to try to help them!

30. They're already born
"pro-lifers" only care while they're a fetus. Postpartum, they're on their own.

32. OK OK she is just waiting for someone to explain what happened and why
she should donate. She might know what an earthquake is tho.

34. Maybe she started to read some newspapers and magazines!
Perhaps Ex-Governor Palin and Glenn Beck will give us their plan on helping the Haitians tomorrow on Faux News. :puke:

3. well gosh darn it isn't a wink and a smile enough?
I mean in this land of the free and home of the brave we all need to remember also that everybody has their own freedom and freewill and as a salmon swims upstream we all just have to go against the flow also, and everybody can think for their own self and pray for guidance and let the chips fall, don't you know!
:crazy:

14. It was news when Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie gave $1 million.
Sandra Bullock also donated $1 million. :)

9. She is so stupid. This is the sort of cause that Christians ought to be front and center of.
No wonder I'm so disillusioned with the strident evangelist types who profess to lead their movement.

Joe Scarborough was talking about an evangelist who had volunteered and was missing in Haiti. These are the people who are true to their faith. Why aren't they leading that crew?

12. Agreed.
There are plenty of Christians, along with all other races and creeds, throughout the world who are doing their best to help the Haitians.

I just don't see that Sarah Palin is one of them.

10. It wouldn't cross her mind
And even if it did, she would think "why would I donate money to a bunch of uncivilized savages, they deserve what they get" Its typical right winger mentality.

11. I would guess her handlers have strapped duct tape across her ignorant yap.
No way in hell are they going to risk her making an ass of herself, (AGAIN)
on a situation this sensitive.
She probably couldn't find Haiti on a map.

If she can't see it from Alaska, then it probably doesn't exist!

15. Exactly. They wont risk it.
They probably screen her on topics before they
allow her to go public.
I assure you, the woman has no idea where Haiti is exactly
or she would be attempting to make it about HER.
If she does make any public statement, it will not be
for a few days; they will have to educate her first
and prepare her repeated one liners for questions she might
be asked and unable to answer.

19. Here's the DU formula for judging the amount she has given:
1. If she donated some modest figure, then she'll be deemed as callous and unfeeling.
2. If she dontated some gaudy amount, then she'll be deemed an attention whore.

This is the wrong subject on which to play politics.

23. It doesn't matter whether she has given money or her time.
The point is, Sarah Palin is always talking about how she's all about "Family Values" and being "Pro-Life."
I'm not seeing any evidence of that with her when it comes to Haiti.

Anyone, whether Democrat, Republican, Independent, whatever, who has an ounce of compassion should be trying to do anything they can to help the earthquake victims.

36. A truly giving heart would make a donation and say nothing about it.
A truly opened minded person would not require any sort of demonstration or proof that a person or entity has given any money at all.

We personally do our best and urge others to do likewise.

38. I agree with you. I'm quite sure many on DU here have done just that.
I also think, however, that sometimes people in the public eye can encourage others to help.

Sarah Palin right now is making a living telling the world about her family values. Maybe we could actually see that in action.

40. Silence Is Golden...
You're right...her critics will gladly find something to pick on (including me)...but there's something else to consider here. While the other cables were doing wall-to-wall coverage of this tragedy, she was parading around Faux noise and said nada about this...as if all that mattered was her; oblivious to the world outside. The fact she's been silent (who cares about her money) shows how myopic and self-centered she and her ilk are.

44. I dislike her immensely. But let's choose another subject on which to bash her.
The choices are limitless.

43. A happy medium amount must be found.
Hmmm. What comes between modest and gaudy? Generous? Let's hope she is.
I agree with you though, politics here is just sad.

20. Failin wouldn't want to offend OxyRush.



And besides, the Quitter wants to keep all the profits from her book sales to herself.

For a discount rate of $100k.

You betcha!

29. it's always a personal decision, deciding to donate and how much
but if I had to guess I would say for Ms. Palin: zero

because

1) It doesn't fit with the image she has coveted for her ingorant redneck base

2) Heck, she herself is redneck and ignorant
