I wish the attacks on Palin had merit…

Nearly everyone in both the media and also in Hollywood are out to destroy Sarah Palin. It’s not like they have any legitimate reason to attack her – well, at least none that isn’t equally applicable to their presidential candidate Barack Obama. Okay, so maybe you haven’t been watching the hub hub on the airwaves so here are a few examples:

Bill Maher: Apparently some Democrats don’t even mind attacking Palin through her Down syndrome baby! Bill Maher said that Palin’s baby: “has Down syndrome. [Palin] had it when she was 43 years old.” Not even funny.

Michael Moore: But there’s more, Michael Moore! In an August 31 post on his website he thought that maybe the Down syndrome child, Trig, wasn’t even Palins! Does anyone on the Far Left even have a brain anymore?!

David Letterman: Lower still is Letterman who said: “Here’s the first thing that came to my mind–OK, so poor John McCain drops dead in office. He gets elected and drops dead. It’s happened! I think Grover Cleveland dropped dead in office, I don’t know. So now [Palin’s] the President and I’m thinking to myself, so she’s the president, fine, but don’t you want your President to have had the presence of mind to have chatted to her teenage kids for five minutes about birth control?” It’s one thing to disagree with her positions on abstinence, but to go so low as to attack her as a mother?!

US Magazine: The newest issue of US Magazine features a picture of Palin with her new baby Trig and the title “Sarah Palin: Babies, Lies, and Scandals”. The implication is that Palin is telling lies – but the article is partly about the lies people are spreading about her!

Howard Gutman: An original member of Obama’s finance committee spoke out against Palin because of her pregnant daughter and her large family. Basically he was saying that no woman with a decent family can be in politics. And we wonder why the Democratic Party pro-choice…

However, despite all the ad hominem attacks, Palin is more popular than either Obama or McCain!
