Isn’t it funny how people with connections to Sarah Palin receive high accolades?
Cathy Baldwin-Johnson Named The 2002 Family Physician of The Year By The American Academy of Family Physicians.
This after being recommended by Sarah Palin.
I’ve always wondered why a physician worthy of such a high honor wouldn’t insist that her pregnant patient who just happened to be expecting a baby with known Down Syndrome go to the nearest hospital for a check-up when that patient was thousands of miles from home and called the doctor to report premature contractions and leaking amniotic fluid. Doing anything except recommending said patient make a visit to the emergency department makes no sense. Never mind that the patient also happens to be the Governor of the state where the doctor lives and practices. It just makes no sense. Unless the call never happened because the patient wasn’t really pregnant.
Another person in Sarah’s life who has received a high honor is Ina Bouker.
Alaska’s 2007 Teacher of the Year is Ina Bouker, a first grade teacher at Dillingham Elementary School.
This is the cousin Ina who viewers met on the latest episode of Sarah Palin’s Alaska.
Ina Bouker’s husband, John Paul, also seen on the show is the owner of Bristol Bay Air Service.
This is the cousin Ina who has a child, Matthew, with Down Syndrome. One would think that Sarah would seek advice from Ina about raising a child with Down Syndrome but I haven’t seen any evidence of her seeking the wisdom of Todd’s cousin. Then again Sarah thinks she knows everything so why would she ask for help?
I have a question for anyone who watched the last episode of Sarah Palin’s Alaska closely. (Her screeching gets to me so I fast forward most of it.)
Did Sarah or someone else say that Ina has seven children? I have read that she has six so if Sarah said seven might that have been a Freudian slip that explains where Trig came from and why he bears a resemblance to the Palins?
