Reader reaction to Reuters news

Isn’t she also something else?

Palin jolts Capitol, energizes Republicans

In case you forgot, here is your quote “In the two weeks since her selection, the former beauty queen, TV sportscaster and small-town mayor has turned into a charismatic attack dog.”

DID YOU FORGET TO ADD Sarah Palin is ALSO A GOVERNOR!

C.R.

No. Did you forget to read the first sentence in the paragraph you are quoting? The Alaska governor is the first female Republican vice presidential nominee and America’s newest political star, replacing in that role Democratic presidential nominee Barack Obama. GBU Editor

Just like to say that, I think the operative word in the quote is “former”. She is a “former” beauty queen, “former” sportscaster, and “former” small-town mayor! She is the current governor of Alaska….

 

Michael – I don’t understand why you felt the need to point that out. I think we all understand she is a governor, and she’s not running for a beauty pageant.

C.R. – You need to not get so upset about things and make sure you review the presented information before you go say something embarrassing.

GBU Editor – Thank you for standing up for yourself. I hate to see people get so unnecessarily upset about things like this.

Whitecup – Sometimes it’s necessary to point out the obvious, since C.R. didn’t get it! My point was the difference between “former” and “current.” Yes, we all know she isn’t running in a beauty pageant…

As for the GBU editor standing up for her/himself, all I saw was attitude in the response. Reuters readers are customers and should be treated with respect, not talked down too.
