Someone who sees that their kids are beautiful

When Palin spoke in Johnstown, some of the biggest and most sustained cheering was for her support of kids with special needs. It's not just the parents who appreciate that she's there. It's people like me, who worked with folks with developmental disabilities and who feel that knife-stab in the heart every time somebody talks about aborting babies because they'd be -- you know -- defective. These are people I love, and it hurts to hear people talk as if they don't deserve to live, like they're garbage, unworthy, burdensome.

Obama thinks it's okay to stick these kids in a closet to die. Palin thinks they're "not a problem -- they're a priority".

Guess who I agree with.
