As predicted in this space a few days ago, this is entirely expected by anyone who has judged the despicable performance of the national media over the last 20 years.
However, I must admit to being surprised the by the vicious, absolutely mad frenzy with which the scum has lowered themselves.
The pregnancy of Palin's teenage daughter generated three front-page stories in a single day in the New York Times ... long the self-proclaimed America's "paper of record".
These are the same elitist bastards who lectured us that Bill Clinton's life-long sexual misconduct--up to and including rape--was none of our business, was "personal", and had no bearing whatsoever on his responsibilities as president.
Barack Obama has issued a completely fraudulent condemnation of such ad hominem attacks, while loosing his minions to eviscerate Palin where she is most vulnerable... he children.
She has been criticized by the media slugs for campaigning full time (for four days) with five young children "at home"... which they point out, include one pregnant daughter and a handicapped infant.
Today Sally Quinn lead the attack. Quinn, the has been "journalist"--is most famous for helping destroy WaPo editor Ben Bradleee's first marriage with an adulterous affair, which began after he hired her as a Post reporter without a shred of writing experience.
As the often told story goes: "Can you show me something you've written?" asked Editor Bradlee. "I've never written anything," admitted Quinn. Pause. "Well," said Bradlee, "nobody's perfect."
And the schtupping began.
Other drive by female media darlings like the barely competent newsdwarf Katie Couric, are held out as leftist heroines who fit the feminist template of the successful American woman who has it all.
Yet Couric abandoned her children, Elinor and Caroline, aged 7 and 2 respectively after her husband's untimely death, to spend most of her time reading someone else's news copy... not to mention recently going to a war zone to help justify her enormous salary--the biggest waste of cash in CBS history.
Why wasn't Hillary condemned for her decision to put career, any career (or pursuit thereof) ahead of her daughter... at birth. Chelsea was born in 1980 and her mother went right back to work as full partner in the Rose law firm... while dabbling in the cattle futures market.
Later, when Chelsea was 18 months, Hillary took a leave of absence from Rose to work full time campaigning for Bill who had lost his job and was trying to return as Arkansas' "Boy Governor".
The left never met an hypocrisy it didn't fully embrace.
Clearly, Palin is the new George Bush for America's rabid left.
Tonight, team McCain would be wise, not to mention gallant, to suggest she take the high road in her speech and leave to surrogates the juicy task of knee-capping the scum like the Chief Faggot of Representatives, Barney Frank, and the aforementioned Quinn.
One such surrogate, Fred Thompson, should be given an unlimited travel budget to stalk Obama and his henchmen from now until Nov 4. to deliver his devastating critique of the left in all its rabid mutations.
Truth... constantly repeated truth... is the best weapon there is in a participatory, democratic republic such as ours.
