It seems I can’t open my e-mail box or check the blogs without discovering some new allegation about Sarah Palin. Â It’s gotten to the point now where I now almost immediately discount any criticism leveled against the Alaska Governor. Â The left-wing blogs (and their echo chambers in the MSM) should learn that they lose credibility when they put forward allegations which can be readily debunked. Â
Pajamas Media has been doing a great job taking on those who would smear the Republican Vice-Presidential nominee. Â Just yesterday, they posted Charlie Martin’s “Separating Palin Fact from Palin Fiction” when, often in a humorous vein, he debunks many of the rumors floating around the net about that good and strong woman.
Finding that Palin “drives journalists nuts,” Jim Treacher observes:
If they dug into Obama’s connections to black separatists and domestic terrorists and other hope-and-change advocates as thoroughly as they’re digging into Palin’s PTA records and pizza delivery receipts, we might have a whole different election. But that would only happen in some sort of mirror universe where Obama had joined a different party. They’ve come up empty again and again, but they still can’t stop. The more they realize that this woman actually might be as squeaky-clean as advertised, the harder they try to find something. Anything. And the dumber they look, the angrier and sloppier they get. Every â€œGotcha!â€ becomes a â€œD’oh!â€
Seems we’ve heard more about the pastor at a church Palin left six years ago because his church was too extreme than about William Ayers, an American terrorist with whom Obama had a regular association throughout the 1990s (even as the Democratic nominee claimed he was just a guy in his neighborhood).
Factcheck.org has also set the record straight on a number of “claims and rumors” about John McCain’s running mate.
Now, I’m beginning to wonder if maybe Hillary Clinton was right and there is sexism in the media. I had just thought it was a readiness and resolve to repudiate any Republican who ressembles Reagan
