Sarah Speaks for Autism Speaks!

Hi all:

The day after her Auburn celebration of Alaska's purchase by William Seward, Governor Palin traveled to Manhattanville College in Purchase, New York with her sister Heather (great name :) ) and Heather's autistic 14-year-old son, Karcher, to do a charity walk with the group Autism Speaks!

Word on the street is that she walked for a bit, as you can see in the video, but that the authorities actually asked her not to walk the whole 2-mile route because she would slow the procession down! As you can see, too many people wanted pix taken, etc., which would cause a logjam.

I believe 12,000 people walked and they raised $1.4 million.

Bonus video: Later that night Governor Palin was honored by the Independent Group Home Living organization at their annual fundraiser. The video is a bit scratchy, but well worth watching.

"Second of two." Ha ha!

And notice no teleprompter. How could she ever be President? /sarcasm
