Palin attacks shameful

The Spokesman-Review

In August 2008 Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin was suddenly thrust upon the national political stage when she was picked as the GOP vice president candidate. Immediately, an army of Democratic political operatives descended upon Wasilla with handfuls of cash to pay for any dirt on the Palin family. Barack Obama repeatedly said that the family members were off limits and Gov. Palin assumed that applied to her family as well.

After losing the election and enduring constant attacks from late-night talk shows going so far as attacking her Down syndrome baby and her 14-year-old daughter, Sarah has had enough. She has had to spend $500,000 personally and the state spent over $2 million to fight frivolous lawsuits, winning every one, but having to pay for legal defense.

Where were the women of America? Oh, that’s right. They only support liberal women.

Where were the Republican men? Many of them were feeding the fire in fear of the strong conservative governor that might be a power in 2012.

Elitists in America, I am ashamed of what you did to Sarah Palin.

Jim Bennett
