Sarah Palin related to Princess Diana and Franklin D Roosevelt

The following article which appeared today on the website is interesting to compare to my original article published here on September 16. Janet Crain

Sarah Palin related to Princess Diana and Franklin D Roosevelt
Sarah Palin, the Republican Vice-presidential nominee, is related to Princess Diana, according to genealogists.

John McCain's running mate in the US elections is supposedly a 10th cousin of Princes William and Harry's late mother. Mrs Palin, the Governor of Alaska, is also related to Democrat President Franklin D Roosevelt, the man who steered the US through the Great Depression and World War II.

According to research experts, Governor Palin is the ninth cousin once removed of the man whose New Deal scheme is widely credited to have re-invigorated the US economy in the 1930s. Their common ancestor is Rev John Lothrop, who came to Massachusetts in 1634. Mrs Palin and Princess Diana are descended from John Strong and his wife Abigail Ford. Strong was born around 1605 in England and emigrated to the United States.'s chief family historian Megan Smolenyak said: "When you've got candidates who have deep roots in America, there's a good chance that they're going to have some famous cousins.

"We've all got literally millions of cousins. The trick is finding that one little connection that results in something like Sarah Palin being related to FDR or Diana."

The genealogical connections are not the first made in the US presidential campaign.

Last year, Lynne Cheney, wife of current US Vice President Dick Cheney, found she was a distant cousin of Democratic presidential hopeful Barack Obama.

The news comes as French actress Brigitte Bardot, described Mrs Palin, 44, as a "disgrace to women".

Miss Bardot described Mrs Palin as "disconcertingly stupid" for "denying the responsibility of man in global warming" and "by advocating gun rights."
She also said of the self-styled "Pitbull with lipstick": "I know dogs well and I can assure you that no pitbull, no dog, nor any other animal is as dangerous as you are.

"You are a disgrace to women and you alone represent a terrible threat, a true environmental catastrophe."

And it might be added, if I were so inclined to be uncharitable to elderly French actresses, that Ms.Bardot, herself, is a a true mental catastrophe. But I will just point out she supports PETA which advocates violence toward human beings. JC

Statements by PETA's New Pro-Violence Promoter

"Do not be afraid to condone arsons at places of animal torture."
"It's not about loving animals. It's about fighting injustice. My whole goal is for humans to have as little contact as possible with animals."
If an "animal abuser" were killed in a research lab firebombing, "I would unequivocally support that, too."
These are just a few of the outrageous comments spewed over the years by one Gary Yourofsky, formerly president of the animal rights group ADAPTT -- and now a national lecturer for PETA.

Madame Sarah Palin Gouverneur d’Alaska
P.O. Box 110001
Juneau, AK 99811-0001

USA Governor, More than two years ago, I contacted your predecessor to denounce the cruelty of aerial wolf hunting. Today I am shocked to learn that you firmly support this cowardly practice, both morally and financially.

Your fight to keep polar bears off the Endangered Species list even though they are threatened by global warming demonstrates your total irresponsibility, your inability to protect or even respect animal life, but it's true that for you, a good animal is a dead one! By campaigning for drilling for oil in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge, you are putting an already fragile habitat at risk, as well as all the biodiversity of a sensitive area that must absolutely be preserved.

Governor, by denying man's responsibility for global warming, by being a proponent of the right to bear arms and shoot anything that moves, by making numerous declarations of alarming stupidity, you bring shame upon women and represent, all on your own, a terrible threat, a true ecological catastrophe. Defending life means showing compassion for all the beings that populate this ailing earth. Since we are only on this earth for a short time, think of what you are leaving behind for future generations...

To finish, I beg you to no longer refer to yourself as a 'pit bull with lipstick', since I can assure you that no pit bull, no dog, nor any other animal is as dangerous as you.

In the name of the respect and preservation of nature, I hope that you lose this election, because then the whole world will win!

Brigitte Bardot President

Of course, Ms. Bardot, like so many, misquotes Sarah Palin's position on Global Warming. She has stated while some may be from man made activities, some may be cyclical.

Many prominent scientists agree. In fact, some discount a man made cause of global warming entirely. JC
