Video: Sarah Palin Gets Schooled By A Teacher

By Robert Paul Reyes

Sarah Palin had a dustup with a teacher, and fortunately it was captured on video for our edification. The confrontation occurred in Alaska where the Fox News commentator was filming a scene for her upcoming reality show.

The former beauty queen noticed Kathleen Gustafon, a teacher, holding up a sign that read: Worst Governor Ever." Palin walked over, and asked the woman "What`s up?" Big mistake!

Gustafon told her what was up, alright! Here are a couple of her gems:

"You swore on your precious Bible that you would uphold the interests of this state, and then when cash was waved in front of your face, you quit,"

"You are more interested in becoming a celebrity than being involved in the political process."

Gustafon zeroed in on the dichotomy between Palin`s evangelical beliefs and her naked grab for wealth and fame. Reporters shoud take note, and not be afraid to mention what a poor job Palin does of living up to her evangelical beliefs. Palin wears her religion on her sleeve -- why shouldn`t the press point out her hypocrisy?

The teacher pointed out that the best-selling author is more interested in celebrity than in the political process. Gustafon`s observation is spot on, Palin is more interested in how many books she sells and what kind of ratings she gets on Fox News, than in how many people she reaches with her conservative message.

I beg all my readers to watch the video, it`s amazing how Gustafon kept her cool while Palin resorted to sarcasm and rolling her eyes.
