Associated Press writer, Dan Joling, was jolted by the Governor of Alaska taking time to greet children at the governor’s mansion Christmas open house yesterday. Gov. Sarah Palin even held up the greeting line to actually talk to the little non-voters.
"Palin, wearing a velvet kuspuk, paid especially close attention to children, crouching to greet them at eye level, holding up the line to ask them questions."
The idea of focusing on children at Christmas was so striking to Joling that he questioned the head of the Capital City Republican Women’s Club as to why Gov. Palin would pay special attention to children.
"That fit with the theme of the decorations, according to Ginger Johnson of the Capital City Republican Women's Club, which decked the halls.
"'The focus is on entertaining children,' Johnson said."
Duh! Maybe Joling has never noticed the lines at stores and malls all around the country where children visiting with Santa are a big event to them, their parents, and friendly shoppers passing by. For Joling and the Associated Press it seems to be Bah, humbug!
