So obsessed have our media become with promoting their narrative that Sarah Palin is an out-of-touch socially backward loon that they’re now raising a ruckus over something her teenage daughter said on her Facebook page. Let me repeat, they’re raising a ruckus over something her teenage daughter said on her Facebook page. No, this is not something Sarah Palin said nor something her Dancing-with-the-Stars daughter said, but something her daughter who has not yet reached the age of maturity said.
A number of lefty bloggers have gotten their panties all in a bundle over the issue while conservative bloggers chuckle from the sidelines and wonder at the lefties’ obsession. “This,” R.S. McCain reminds us, “is just how teenagers insult each other.” Bob Owens feigns incredulity, asking if this is news.
As usual, our pal Tammy Bruce, this time in her role as Chair of the GOProud Advisory Council, adds a dose of common sense:
Willow Palin is a 16 year old girl who, like all 16 year olds is going to make mistakes and say things she shouldn’t have. This, however, has nothing to do with Willow Palin or the substance of what she said on Facebook. The ‘slur’ used here is one you could hear on the streets of West Hollywood or Chelsea every day of the week. Apparently, it’s only a ‘homophobic slur’ when it comes from the daughter of a conservative female leader. Make no mistake; this is all about destroying Sarah Palin by any means necessary.
The angry misogynistic left and their accomplices in the main stream media have been unable to take down Governor Palin – no matter how hard they have tried. Unable to take her down directly they now have decided to try to hurt her by attacking the most important thing in her life – her family.
Any person, gay or straight, who participates in this cheap political smear should be ashamed of themselves.
UPDATE: Seems Jon Stewart and I are on the same page:
“It’s Bristol Palin! She’s not running for anything. said Stewart, “She’s not doing anything wrong. If you don’t like how far she’s going, don’t watch the show.”
Also rounding out the Palin coverage yesterday was a report on Willow Palin’s controversial comments on her Facebook page.
“Stop making me feel sympathy for the Palins!” Stewart exclaimed, “It’s a 16-year-old kid’s Facebook page!”
“Kids are off-limits,” Stewart pronounced, “As a matter of fact, we should all go out of our way to treat her children with kid gloves and respect to show that we don’t judge individuals and mock them purely based on who their parents are.”
