When the rules go only one way

The recent rumours circulating around Sarah Palin, and only now dispelled by her statement that her eldest daughter is pregnant and intending to marry, are disgusting beyond belief. How on earth do the rules go only one way?
If Michelle Obama was accused of having adopted her daughters in order to avoid natural birth and then pretending in her speech to do so, the world would be outraged and rightly so. But because we have a smart, conservative woman, she’s fair game? I would call that misogyny of the first order, as then she’s a saint if leftwing and a whore if rightwing.

The left and the Democrats have double standards. That much is now evident.

    The MSM is quick to point out that Palin’s husband received a DUI, but omit that it happened when he was 22; while Obama confessed to using cocaine in one of his memoirs. And for that, Obama gets a free pass. Talk about double standards! Disgusting, doncha think?

    Well there is currently talk about Palin attending an “end of day” culty/church. I’m waiting to see if there is any traction in this story – just like the last three non-scandels.
    Of course there are double standards. One might almost be tempted to say that these are especially so because Palin is a woman and not a perfect leftwing example at that.
