Palin unloads both barrels on partisan media

Joseph Smith
From Fast and Furious to Benghazi, and from the IRS to the VA, the national media has assiduously covered President Obama’s tracks from start to finish, and is no doubt preparing to do the same for possible presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.

Having heard enough, Sarah Palin this week let the media have both rhetorical barrels over their partisan covering for know-nothing Democrats, as highlighted on the Drudge Report.

Governor Palin’s first post aims at the media sniping over Karl Rove’s suggesting that Hillary’s concussion and blood clot may have an effect on her ability to handle the rigors of the presidency, and that health issues ought to at least be examined in vetting Mrs. Clinton for the job (emphasis in original):

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.

Referring to her own time as a vice presidential candidate, Palin continues:

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…

…Just ask me. And Trig.

Ms. Palin’s second post targets the know-nothing pose adopted by the president, as shown in a Townhall montage, when he professes to have learned about the latest scandal only from reports in the press, just like the rest of us gullible rubes out here:

Obama knows nothing, sees nothing, and hears nothing unless his lapdogs bark, then his ears perk up. Not exactly using a hunting dog to flush out the truth, is he?

This, as Palin notes, comes from a government that wants to know about every aspect of our daily lives, “yet announces our President’s daily Intelligence report is actually prepared by Matt Drudge.”

Or, as Rush Limbaugh suggests, “[i]t's like he just became president yesterday, and yesterday they tell him all of this stuff that's been going on to try to get him up to speed.”
