I've been waiting for this one: Today Governor Palin endorsed Star Parker for Congress.
Via Facebook, the Governor writes:
I’m proud to endorse Star Parker for California’s 37th Congressional District. Star has an incredible story and a passionate commitment to her community and our great nation. Rising up from being a single mom on welfare, Star worked hard to build a non-profit network that seeks to reduce poverty and create a brighter future for America by promoting free market solutions and personal responsibility. There is no doubt that she will bring a new level of enthusiasm and energy to Washington for American values, limited government, and economic growth. She’s a dynamic leader who is committed to building a more prosperous environment for the families in her district and ushering in positive change. Please join me in supporting Star and her message of hope, opportunity, and self-reliance. Visit her website at www.StarParkerforCongress.com and follow her on Facebook and Twitter.
Both Governor Palin and Star Parker are role models who inspire others to greatness. The Governor grew up hunting and fishing in the "Last Frontier." Star Parker had a more troubled upbringing and became a woman dependent on the government--until she saw the light. In spite of being from two different worlds, so to speak, today they both share an incredible love for America, a deep appreciation for hard work, and a commitment to common sense solutions. They're both willing to serve to see this nation return to both fiscal and personal responsibility. I wrote more about Star Parker in March here.
So how does Star Parker feel about Governor Palin's endorsement?

I, too, am excited about this particular endorsement. Star deserves it, and I look forward to Governor Palin helping send her to Washington.
