Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, whom liberals and the mainstream press have maligned with glee while intrusively trying uncover the most sensitive personal information and who has been accused of faking a pregnancy, mocked liberals who complained about Hillary Clinton’s health being scrutinized.
After Karl Rove clumsily suggested that Clinton had brain damage, Republicans made the point that Clinton’s health would be fair game if she became a presidential candidate in 2016. Clinton reportedly fell due to a serious blood clot and suffered a concussion before she was scheduled to testify in 2012 on Benghazi. Her husband, Bill Clinton, revealed last week that Clinton had to undergo six months of therapy after the incident.
On Monday, after referencing an article that was linked on the Drudge Report, Palin mockingly wrote that since “the country’s just swell under the Obama regime (which includes any cabinet member who’d lie and prove ineptitude by shining the boot that’s now on America’s neck)” and there are “enormous issues to debate before choosing a Presidential/Vice Presidential ticket,” voters should “have confidence no mean-spirited salaciousness will be pushed by ‘real journalists.'”
“Nope. This just doesn’t happen at this respectable level of American politics,” she said, dripping with sarcasm. “Just ask me. And Trig.”
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!
Bunch of sexist, big meanies engaging in something heretofore unheard of, for shame.
America, you deserve fair and consistent coverage of relevant issues before deciding a Presidential/Vice Presidential ticket, so have faith the agenda-less media will refuse to push whispers and wildly inaccurate information about a partisan politician’s body part. 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.
Palin then cited a 2008 article from Politico with the headline, “Mission for anti-Palin movement: Expose her.” She referenced a Salon article discussing the specious Truther theories in addition and provided links that offered cash about for information about Trig’s birth. Palin even linked to a Breitbart News report in which President Barack Obama admitted that one of his favorite writers was Andrew Sullivan, who was the leading Trig Truther. She then mockingly wrote:
Thank goodness liberals are consistent in refusing to apply double standards, thanks to their disdain for hypocrisy – so they’ll come through once again! Rest assured these self-designated protectors of what they obviously believe is the “weaker sex” needing protection in the political arena will elevate political discourse. Apparently, Democrats demand their next chosen one’s brain must be absent. Opposition – go there exploring a liberal’s brain and you find nothing; or, find something and you’re just trying to distract voters from the REAL issues.
