How dare anyone make hurtful comments (true or not) about her and her family on TV?
SHE certainly would never do that to anyone . . .
Although hmmm, the retort her office issued would apply to her, with the names changed to protect reality:
We’re disappointed that [Sarah Palin] and family, in a quest for fame, attention, and fortune, are engaging in flat-out lies, gross exaggeration, and even distortion. . .
It is unfortunate that [she] finds it more appealing to exploit [her] previous relationship with [us, during her flash-in-the-pan celebrity] than to contribute to the well being of [this child, her other children or everybody else’s children in America and around the world].”
Of course it’s not really fair to compare political attacks between candidates to what she now feels the need to say against a private citizen in her hometown constituency, a young man not even out of high school, who’s the father of her only grandchild and therefore married or not is now related to her whole family.
No, this isn’t comparable, it’s worse — when I didn’t think she could GET worse.
