Part VII – Palin Highlights The Left’s Double Standard


Once upon a time a creep decided to circulate a video of the Vice President’s daughter using cocaine.  Conservative and Republican blogs did not touch the story, save to mention they were not going to exploit it, and something looked strange about it.  One conservative blogger mentioned that he seemed to remember that Ashley Biden was “hot”, but that was about it.

The father of Bristol Palin’s baby, Trip, played the absolute cad and went on some stupid talk show dissing not only his “baby’s mother” but his potential ex-mother-in-law.  It was a very classy move that has been picked up, en masse, by the liberal blogs.  The same thing is going on with the tale of Todd Palin’s sister.  Anyone who might want to be fair should admit that there’s something going on with that poor woman. Instead they blame her sister-in-law, hoping to embarass her.

Warner Todd Houston wrote in Newsbusters:

“…Maybe it’s just me, but I am not much interested in the families of political figures. I didn’t find Billy Carter’s exploits particularly interesting or relevant. I couldn’t have cared less that some of Ronald Reagan’s kids were so boringly compelled to tell the world about their personal angst. I had no interest in Al Gore’s ner do well kids. Didn’t care that Bush’s teen daughters liked to party once in a while. I have no interest in a story about Joe Biden’s drug using daughter. Similarly, I’ve got no interest in Bristol Palin’s woefully bad choice of the punk Levi Johnston as the accidental father of her child. But our Old Media seem to think that these tales are hot news that we should all know about….”

This is a tale of two parties – Democrat and Republican.  It highlights the best of people and the worst of people….

So, the Obama attack dogs are at work, telling us what a bad week Sarah Palin had, failing to admit that Obama’s aunt has received a stay of deportation, of that The One (incompetent) is allowing his relatives in Kenya to go hungry and ill, but is not lifting a pinky to support them while dining on rather expensive food.

“…And here we see another example of that lame bias by our old friend Anne Sutton, an AP writer that is renown for her hit pieces on Governor Palin and her family.

This AP piece is supposedly describing “Sarah Palin’s Bad Week,” in which mountains are made of molehills over and over again. Little of this “report” is of note but one thing does stand out. That would be the quoting by writer Sutton of Ross Baker. Baker is described as a “political science professor ” from Rutgers University (New Jersey) and is featured saying how bad things are for Palin these days….Well, maybe not so unbiased. A little ten seconds of Google research reveals that Baker is a long-time Democrat Party activist as his biography page from Rutgers reveals.

Professor Baker served on the staffs of Senators Walter F. Mondale, Birch Bayh, and Frank Church, and as a consultant to the Democratic Caucus of the U.S. House of Representatives. In 2000, he served as a senior adviser to Senator Chuck Hagel (R-Nebraska) and Patrick J. Leahy (D-Vermont)….”

John Ziegler, who created Media Malpractice, highlighting the media war against Sarah Palin, wrote the following:

“…She declared, “Some in the media actually participated in not so much the ‘who-what-where-when-why’ objective reporting on candidates and positions, those five W’s that I learned when I had a journalism degree so many years ago in college, when the world of journalism was quite different than it is today.”
Who could blame someone who graduated in the 80’s during a year in journalism when there was at least some self restraint on the inherent liberal agenda (I always find it amusing that Sam Donaldson, the scourge of conservatives during the Reagan years, now seems downright fair in retrospect) for being more than a bit shocked that the rules had been completely changed without anyone officially doing so.
“No, things have changed,” she said. “But complaining? Or whining? Absolutely not. But I am going to call it like I see it. It doesn’t do any good to whine about any of this. But I can call it like I see it. Sometimes it gets me in a lot of trouble when I speak candidly, and I speak from the heart and I do such a thing. But I am going to.”..”
