By Robert Paul Reyes

"Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin plans to visit Haiti amid a period of political upheaval this weekend to aid humanitarian efforts in the Caribbean country.

"A Palin staffer confirmed Thursday that Palin, the 2008 vice presidential nominee and a potential 2012 presidential contender, planned to travel to Haiti with the Rev. Franklin Graham as part of the outreach of his Samaritan`s Purse relief organization."

"Sarah Palin will travel to strife-torn Haiti this weekend with Franklin Graham, son of famed evangelist Billy Graham, on a mission that could burnish her standing on foreign policy and with evangelicals if she pursues a 2012 presidential run."

David Gibson

Gibson a religious writer for PoliticsDaily.Com is half right, Palin`s photo-op in Haiti with a fundamentalist preacher will endear her to evangelicals, but it will hardly burnish her standing on foreign policy. Palin`s minders need to monitor her very closely, she`s liable to utter an idiotic statement like: I can see the White House from my luxury hotel in Haiti.

Palin doesn`t need to take a crash course on foreign policy, her base doesn`t care if she can`t tell the Koreas apart and the rest of us know she is a clueless moron.

Franklin Graham may be a narrow-minded bigot, but I give him credit for providing tangible help for people in need all over the world. Franklin`s organization "Samaritan`s Purse" has maintained a presence in devastated Haiti, providing medical aid to thousands of people.

Sarah Palin on the other hand, has never helped anyone but herself. Palin is tagging along with Franklin simply for the publicity. Franklin should be ashamed of allowing himself to be used by a huckster like Sarah Palin.
