A Voice in the Disability Community Speaks Out Against Sarah Palin’s Speech

Apparently, I wasn’t the only person with a disability/family member of a person with a disability that was offended by a certain passage in Sarah Palin’s speech.

this out. It’s a strong, loud voice, letting the world know how Sarah Palin’s attempt to reach out to the disabled was deemed a failure and shallow to some. (That includes me.)

Hi Angie. Thanks for visiting my blog. I was amazed to learn that you are blind, and I am inspired that you have not let that stand in the way of blogging. I hope I don't sound ignorant to you by saying this; if so I apologize.

About your post. Yes, Palin has been terribly misleading about her advocacy for disabled children. Maybe now that she has one in her own family, she'll be more conscientious, but I'm not holding my breath. Her past record of cutting funding and then pretending she fights for these kids makes her out to be a liar and a hypocrite. It ticks me off that this is barely reported on TV.
