COMMENTARY | The incomparable Sarah Palin has weighed in on the whole Hillary Clinton brain injury kerfuffle. Clearly, she suggests, it is out of bounds to make inquiries or make snarky remarks about a woman politician’s health.
“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.”
Like happened to Palin herself, especially with crazy speculation on the true maternity of her special needs son Trig. Of course this concerned another body part, her womb, and not her brain. Not that liberals haven’t attacked that organ as well. The snark does not end there, however.
“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.”
That is the difference between Hillary Clinton and Sarah Palin. Clinton has gotten a lot of traction playing the victim, ever since the revelations of her husband’s serial philandering. It got her into the Senate, got her a job as secretary of state, and her partisans hold out the hope that it might get her into the White House.
Palin, on the other hand, reacts to vicious attacks a little differently. Attack her or, as too often has been the case, her children, and the Mama Grizzly’s claws come out and people start getting bloody. It illustrates what may be a valuable lesson. Who do you want dealing with the likes of Vladimir Putin? Ms. Clinton, who has proven to be such a failure in everything she has done, or Palin, who will hit back twice as hard when enemies dare come after her? The answer should be obvious.
