I earlier commented on Lori Ziganto’s excoriation of the hate-filled leftist lamestream media’s dishonest smearing of Palin over her trip to Haiti, with all the leftist lamestream media’s PDS-filled lies. Lori quoted a PuffHo author’s lie-filled, hate-filled smearing of Palin and responded to him, straightening him out (although I highly doubt the liar over at PuffHo ever saw it).
And then, the multiple shots of Sarah sanitizing and washing her hands suggests the former Gov is primarily concerned, above all humanitarian else, about catching something. …
She’s concerned about “catching something”? She’s there. Where are you, Mr. Shaw? Furthermore, I’m no fancy-pants journalist who talks out of my cushy and judgmental hindquarters. So, I did a little something called a google search to confirm my common sense (common sense is hard for the Left) suspicions; washing and sanitizing hands after being in contact with people infected with cholera is a way to, you know, stop the transmission and spreading of cholera. It’s what one is supposed to do.
Via Newsmax, Reverend Franklin Graham explains why Sarah Palin went to Haiti (he invited her but while that was a catalyst, that was only secondary), and explains about the dangers of cholera, and responds to the lamestream media’s attack on Palin.
Graham, who said he has worked with Palin on a number of projects in Alaska, invited her to Haiti to view the relief efforts. Accompanying her on the tour last weekend were her husband, Todd, and daughter Bristol.
The former GOP vice-presidential candidate “has tremendous compassion for people, she loves people, and she cares deeply about people,” Graham said.
“She was an encouragement not only to the staff and to the relief workers (but) even to the Haitian people who didn’t know her,” Graham said.
“She came in with her smile. She would sit on the cots. Now, you have to understand a cholera clinic, these cots have been soaked in urine, and fecal matter, and vomit. Cholera is a horrible thing, and she just sat right there in the middle of it, holding peoples’ hands, talking to people, holding babies, it was an amazing thing. She’s quite a lady and not afraid to get her hands dirty.”
Graham noted that cholera can kill a person in four hours. I suppose that might be a good reason to maintain one’s own cleanliness after coming in contact with infected people and contaminated equipment, don’t you, Mr Shaw?
For information on Samaritan’s Purse, the organization doing the hard and dangerous work with Haitian cholera victims, do stroll over to their site. And maybe consider giving a donation to the worthy cause.
