Quote of the Day – Laura Goldman Edition

When I had to chance to interact with former Republican vice-presidential nominee Sarah Palin at SkyBridge Capital’s SALT conference, I was  surprised to discover that she is intelligent, nice, knows the name of the newspapers that she reads, and has an elaborate tattoo on her ankle.When I asked if I could take a picture of Palin, she asked if I wanted to take a picture with her although she knew I was part of the “lamestream” media.

After meeting her at the SALT conference, I ran into at the airport. Since airport security was escorting her, she did not have to say hello again and start talking to me again, but she did. Although security wanted to carry her suitcase for her, she insisted on rolling it on her own. She offered to take another picture at the airport with me. She was not a primadonna in any way. When I was walking to my seat in coach, I saw her talking to her seat mate.

She is even more beautiful in person. There is never a hair out of place. She is always perfectly dressed for the occasion. She was dressed in all black -leather jacket, shirt, skirt- but tan 6 inch sandals that showed off her tattoo. At the airport, she looked smoking hot in a short dress and Bristol’s cowboy boots.

While I do not agree with her positions, it is pretty clear that she has been unfairly maligned by the press. I have to wonder if some of the reaction is because she is a pretty woman.
