To the Editor:

In reference to Sarah Palin, Louise Miglionico stated: “Thanks to Sarah Palin, women who wish to run for higher office will have to battle their way back again.” Really? I could not disagree more. (“Palin sets women back,” Oct. 15)

In my opinion Sarah Palin’s long list of accomplishments in Alaska speak for themselves including an unprecedented 93 percent approval rating. The accusations that she is a “valley girl” or has a “novice understanding” of the issues is not specific and a mean spirited statement.

Sarah Palin has demonstrated she is a decent, moral, patriotic American as well as a devoted wife, mother and Christian woman.

Particularly impressive is the fact that she did not give into the notion that to be successful in politics a woman had to have a $12 haircut, flat shoes and a closet full of pantsuits.

Furthermore, why should John McCain be ashamed for not picking Kay Bailey Hutchison or Olympia Snowe … who says he didn’t? All the personal attacks on Sarah Palin are absolutely without merit and disgraceful and probably from people who will not vote for her anyway.
