It's also something Palin's most passionate supporters have picked up on. The website Conservatives4Palin, a pro-Palin site that reports on her every move, defends her and urges her to run, posted an op-ed comparing the two. Titled "The Glaring Differences Between Palin and Perry", it criticizes Perry for his decision to mandate the HPV vaccination for every sixth-grade girl. It was widely criticized at the time, the Texas state legislature overturned it, and Perry backed away from the decision just last week
It's clear for Palin's most passionate supporters -- the ones who will undoubtedly volunteer for her campaign if she get sin the race -- Perry is no substitute for their "mama grizzly."
