Washington, Fen 5 (ANI): Sarah Palin, who spoke in California at a tribute to Ronald Reagan, has nothing in common with the former President, says his son.
The former Alaska governor spoke at one of the celebrations marking the centennial of the 40th president's birth on Feb. 6.
Ron Reagan said he doesn't see anything in common between his dad and the 2008 Republican vice presidential candidate, who was invited to speak by the event's sponsor, the conservative Young America's Foundation.
"Sarah Palin is a soap opera, basically. She's doing mostly what she does to make money and keep her name in the news," CBS News quoted Reagan as saying.
"She is not a serious candidate for president and never has been," he said.
However, former Reagan speechwriter Kenneth Khachigian praised the choice of Palin to discuss Reagan's legacy.
Palin was a teenager when Reagan took office in 1981 and like many young people "their lives and philosophy and political fortunes were shaped by the Reagan era. She can reflect on that as well as anyone could," Khachigian says. (ANI)
