Read the whole thing. There’s a dangerous social sickness at work.
Here’s an excerpt: “Worse, Palin’s routine attacks on the media have begun to spill into ugliness. In Clearwater, arriving reporters were greeted with shouts and taunts by the crowd of about 3,000. Palin then went on to blame Katie Couric‘s questions for her “less-than-successful interview with kinda mainstream media.” At that, Palin supporters turned on reporters in the press area, waving thunder sticks and shouting abuse. Others hurled obscenities at a camera crew. One Palin supporter shouted a racial epithet at an African American sound man for a network and told him, “Sit down, boy.”
Keep in mind, while McPalin seems to think their collapsing chances hinge entirely on whipping up mobs over Barack Hussein Obama’s scary name, hue, and acquaintances, that this woman is married to a man who was an avowed secessionist – that is, traitor – for more than a decade. Troubling associations, indeed. Wait, he drives a snowmobile, so that doesn’t count.
And some hair licker defend this Palin gem:
“As we send our young men and women overseas in a war zone to fight for democracy and freedoms, including freedom of the press, we’ve really got to have a mutually beneficial relationship here with those fighting the freedom of the press, and then the press, though not taking advantage and exploiting a situation, perhaps they would want to capture and abuse the privilege. We just want truth, we want fairness, we want balance.”
Come on, somebody out there in the shrinking Palin wing defend her take that freedom of the press is a privilege to abuse. Pretty please?
