Former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin today posted this Status Update on Facebook:
Celebrate Presidents Serving With Pure Motives
We’re kind of consumed with rugged race competition today in our house, but the important thing to remember this morning is the significance of February 18. It should be considered an honor to celebrate Presidents’ Day, particularly with the understanding that President George Washington is at the heart of this patriotic observance. With every passing day, as we recognize the true state of our union, we can appreciate even more those, like President Washington, who have served with pure motives and a true sense of purpose, who loved this nation more than self and truly sacrificed for her future.
Take a minute today to reflect on those who came before us and laid the foundation that was to be the solid rock on which future generations were built, then be inspired to fight for the restoration of all that made America a shining light in the world! Our past demands it, our present desperately requires it, and the world’s future depends on it.
Presidents’ Day reminds us that we have been uniquely blessed by God. Be grateful for the rights He has given us, and please honor those who have given themselves for the preservation of those rights. Let us reject any attempt to fundamentally transform our nation because we want our children and their children to know the American exceptionalism we have enjoyed and to deem it worthy of protecting. Freedom isn’t free, be willing to fight for it.
Happy Presidents’ Day.
- Sarah Palin

Ed. Note: Gov. Palin is referring to a letter to the editor, her brother, Chuck Heath, Jr. wrote to "Field & Stream in response to an article, Sarah Palin's Shooting by David E. Petzal, posted at their site. It's disappointing that the letter even had to be written to a publication such as theirs, but the inaccuracies will not go unanswered." Petzal's article was a hit piece against Gov. Palin referring to Sarah Palin's Alaska, Episode 5, which aired three years ago. Among other things, he falsely claimed that she was an "inexperienced hunter." The text of her Facebook Status post is from the home page of Chuck Heath, Jr.'' site. In a subsequent Facebook Status, Gov. Palin pointed readers to the Conservatives4Palin syndicated posting of Chuck Heath, Jr.'s letter. Former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin today posted this Status Update on Facebook:
*Sigh*...another day, another example of shoddy journalism... Letter to the Editor of Field & Stream - Chuck Heath, Jr. chuckheathjr.com Official site for Chuck Heath, Jr., father, teacher, author, and Alaskan gold miner. His most recent book is Our Sarah, a collaborative effort with his father that shares the formative life of his sister, the former Governor of Alaska, Sarah Palin.

Gov. Palin's brother Chuck Heath, Jr. Thursday defended his sister Sarah on his blog from a fact-challenged Field & Stream writer:
I sent the following letter to the editor of Field & Stream in response to an article, Sarah Palin’s Shooting by David E. Petzal, posted at their site. It’s disappointing that the letter even had to be written to a publication such as theirs, but the inaccuracies will not go unanswered.
