One more perspective on Sarah Palin: that of former Israeli Air Force fighter pilot and current Los Angeles-based director Elan Frank (with Governor Palin in the photo above). Frank shadowed Palin for three days earlier this year for a documentary he is making about extraordinary women around the world. I believe he is referring to the flag he found on Palin’s wall in the governor’s office when he says: “I saw something amazing there.” YNet News reports:
“She had an Israeli flag, of all the things, mounted on her office wall, and I have that on film,” he said. “I was very surprised to see that and when I asked her about it, she said that she loves Israel and th[at] she had friends who visited the country and brought her the flag.”
The linked article by Dana Zimmerman unfortunately passes on the canard that Governor Palin was a supporter of Pat Buchanan but otherwise provides an interesting glimpse of her.
UPDATE: The flag can be seen in the window in this video tour of Juneau that winds up in the governor’s office with Sarah Palin.
JOHN adds: Here’s the video. It’s a fun look at Governor Palin as well as the flag, which is clearly visible when you get to her office;
