As the saying goes, it lacked only a ‘Bless your heart.’
The setup: Ms. Palin notes the way that President Obama called Sandra Fluke to commiserate about Rush Limbaugh’s commentary (said comment that, of course, Obama had nothing to do with); points out – sweetly! – that prominent Obama donor Bill Maher (one million bucks*) had said some incredibly filthy things about both Bristol Palin and her mother while on the air, and finishes by wondering:
If Maher talked about Malia and Sasha that way, you’d return his dirty money and the Secret Service would probably have to restrain you. After all, I’ve always felt you understood my plight more than most because your mom was a teenager. That’s why you stood up for me when you were campaigning against Sen. McCain and my mom — you said vicious attacks on me should be off limits.
Yet I wonder if the Presidency has changed you. Now that you’re in office, it seems you’re only willing to defend certain women. You’re only willing to take a moral stand when you know your liberal supporters will stand behind you.
I’m not exactly sure which is more damning (use of term deliberate): that Palin’s final observation in that quote is such an accurate assessment of the situation, or that Obama’s stance is a necessary one for his re-election. Anyway, read the whole thing; and quietly mourn the fact that we don’t have a President who will take it to heart.
Well. At least, we don’t have one right now.
*Just so the Presidents know: we’re going to make sure that that’s going to end up being the most goram expensive million-dollar donation that you ever got.
