Hypocritical? The hypocrisy IS the treatment Sarah Palinnhas received...I'll give two current events, with easy verifiable response from two
PROTECTED (ie, progressive--read Democratic--women).
During the incredibly brief Benghazi Senate hearing, the former Secretary of State was GIVEN A PASS and allowed to answer a question (relative to the
Administration blaming a random, less than 300 views YouTube video for the embassy attack) with a histrionic "what difference does it make now?" as
an answer. The media...crickets...but hey, Hill looks like she has recovered nicely from her concussion.
Just last week, Senator Diane Fienstein was all but allowed (by media and her fellow Senators) to all but take to her fainting couch for being asked
(and NEVER answering) a "tough" question by Sen. Ted Cruz. Media spin "he is just plain MEAN!"
Yet the media reported, repeated and vilified Palin for a remark she NEVER SAID..."I can see Alaska from my house" was an SNL line uttered by Tina
Fey. Palin, in an interview, had stated that Alaska is so geographically close to Russia that it was infact visible from Alaskan soil, and as such
she (as well as all former Alaskan governors) were infact versed in NORAD readiness and intelligence information. Her answer was intelligent and well
spoken. The "line" was fictional yet delivered by media frauds as a truth.
If the media did its job, "I can see Alaska from my house" would not have left the tiny soundstage of SNL; Hillary Clinton would have been
challenged for her flip answer; and Sen. Feinstein would be forced to answer what OTHER Constitutional Rights can be edited.
The hypocrisy is NOT with my post.
