Sweet Revenge: @SarahPalinUSA on the Media’s Hillary Double Standard

Posted on | May 20, 2014 | 27 Comments

The ironic payback for Trig Trutherism: Now that liberals want to protect Hillary Clinton from scrutiny and criticism — especially questions about the 66-year-old former Secretary of State’s health — Sarah Palin is there to remind the media of how they treated her:

Hey! Hillary’s brain is off-limits! Leave her health records alone! Democrats are right — scouring records of a female candidate is just politics of personal destruction, and for the media to engage in it would be unfair, unethical, and absolutely UNPRECEDENTED. You can’t probe a woman like that because, well, it’s a war on women! . . .
Goodness, no one credible would print lies, continually harass a candidate’s doctor, disrupt local hospital staff, or even offer to pay locals to give “quotes” about her health records to be included in a “research book” by a public university professor (your tax dollars at work?) which the candidate’s attorney will need to respond to.

    What’s the term these days, ah yes, “Democratic Party Operatives with bylines.”

    And it’s getting, excuse the salty sailor talk, really fucking hard not to laugh at them and point it out.

    So uterus sperlunkering by interested gay men (just asking questions) (truly the “Unexplored Country”) is okay but questioning whether a candidate took a fall that took six months to recover from is not?


  • CrustyB

    Sarah Palin makes too much goddamned sense to be president.

  • Kirby McCain

    A book by Ann Coulter comes to mind.

  • Quartermaster

    Obviously she has insufficient bran damage.

    ‘Round here, we call it Democrisy.

    *Gov Palin frequently draws attention to the SUB-STANDARD MSM, who are failing in their duties… and this is absolutely necessary if America is to be fully restored IMV (remember Big Mama Grizzly’s stated goal after the 2010 Conservative Landslide)

    of course Rove et al espouse the *conventional wisdom* which holds that you don’t pick a fight with an entity who buys ink by the barrel load

    this so-called *wisdom* only perpetuates the CORRUPT Media rule which is helping to SINK Constitutional America ….. look at what these gatekeepers *CHOSE* to keep HIDDEN about barry and michelle, back in 2008!

    The CORRUPT Media Gatekeepers are FAILING this Constitutional Republic, and THANKS BE TO G-D we have this LEADER who is willing to lead the charge and FIGHT BACK

    ~> SUPPORT SUPPORT SUPPORT every move she makes Patriots, via email, FB, Twitter, informing neighbors … however it can be done …

    You may recall this interview, I think in 2013, when Sarah Palin was asked:

    “LOPEZ: Will you ever stop referring to the “lamestream” media?

    PALIN: Sure, when they stop
    lamely applying double standards,
    lamely and lazily getting facts wrong when the facts run against their ideology, and
    lamely buying into and perpetuating stereotypes of conservatives.
    So, it’s entirely up to them.”

    Another shining example of why Sarah is America’s Reigning Dunce!!

  • Steve Skubinna

    Yeah, good thing we have Joe Biden a heartbeat away from the Presidency, right?

  • RichFader

    I’m trying to remember when exactly that poof ever bothered to research the claims he was making, rather than smoking weed and tapping on his laptop.

  • Half-Evil D

    Leaps and bounds better than Palin.
