Blue Star Moms And Sarah Palin

Governor Palin met with mothers of active service personnel this Sunday, at a Philadelphia "gourmet" food shop.

Here are some photos from the touching meeting of these Blue Star moms. Hope that Hater below chokes on them.

Governor Palin enters the establishment, and is promptly greeted by either a small man "in transition" or I just insulted a poor woman from Philly. Sorry...

Republican vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin met Sunday with a group of military mothers at a downtown eatery, the third day of a swing through this Democratic stronghold.

The Alaska governor, along with her 14-year-old daughter, Willow, spent about 45 minutes sipping a skinny white chocolate mocha and talking privately with four women whose children are serving in the military overseas.

Palin's son, Track, 19, is deploying for service in Iraq.

As they sat at a table at Di Bruno Bros. gourmet food shop, one of the women, Julie Devitt, got a call from her son, Glen, who deployed to Iraq with the Army in December. She handed the phone to Palin, who spoke with the sergeant briefly.

Reporters were kept at a distance during the visit, although Palin answered one question about the $700 billion agreement reached in Congress and the administration early Sunday to bail out the financial industry. [...]
