Media vs. Sarah Palin
Speakers at the Values Voter Summit this morning spoke of their disdain for the media and love of Alaska Governor Sarah Palin.
Former speaker of the House Newt Gingrich called ABC's interview with Palin "stunningly distorted."
"They find Gov. Palin quite horrifying because she actually believes in God, she actually believes in family, she actually has five children and she actually is a conservative," Gingrich said. "It's as though John McCain had gone to Mars and brought back an alien."
The crowd cheered Lt. Governor of Maryland Michael Steele earlier when he said, "I know Sarah Palin and you don't want to mess with Sarah Palin. She shoots moose, what do you think she is going to do to a donkey?"
CNN's Lou Dobbs gave the opening speech saying that Family Research Council President Tony Perkins "brought me over to his way of thinking. It may cost me my membership card in the liberal media but that is how it is."
