Former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin today posted this Status Update on Facebook:
Happy Columbus Day. Thank goodness for the determination of all bold explorers and innovators—yesterday and today—who don't let the critics hold them back. May their courage and determination always inspire us to greater heights and encourage us today to seek responsible resource development opportunities.
Speaking of resource development, I’m in California again today and the gas prices here are just ridiculous. One solution to this problem is of course increased exploration domestically in order to tap our plentiful supplies and not let the naysayers hold us back.
I’m in California today to support Bristol. I’m sorry to see that she’s again getting those annoying death threats and more “mysterious white powder” sent to her while on DWTS this All-Star season. These threats sure waste a lot of time, production and public resources; but do the haters really think this will stop Bristol and Mark and the show’s producers from keepin' on keepin' on? Silly critics — after all these years of goofy antics like this we find these efforts are actually quite motivating! Bristol’s not letting this get her down. Anyway, tonight is a “double elimination” night, so hopefully everyone who has supported her so far will do so again! I'll be sure to post the call in number and voting instructions later today before the event. Thank you again to everyone. It means a great deal during this fun and highly competitive event, and it's sure appreciated!
As Bristol shares with anyone targeted by the naysayers in life: “Hey, the haters will hate anyway; the critics will criticize, so you might as well dance!”
