On The Right Side: Dems, media using lies to paint Palin

Can you believe how scared the cowardly left is about Sarah Palin?

Its petty, immature attempts to insult and demean her and her family seem to know no boundaries, and worse, its lackeys, the mainstream media, continue the lies.

It's getting harder and harder to distinguish between the wacko extreme leftist groups like The Daily Kos and the Huffington Post and the media. They are more than happy to perpetuate the lies. And to all you Democrats and liberals out there who don't speak out against this viciousness, you are just as bad as the wackos. Do you guys have any sense of fair play and integrity at all?

There are lots of examples to point out. They have tried to besmirch her by calling her "the beauty queen" and "the stewardess." Then there are the outrageous lies. They have claimed that Sarah faked a pregnancy to protect her 17-year-old daughter and claim that Trig is really the daughter's child. They have even gone so far as to demand DNA testing. Where's the outrage?

And how about some more? The left has claimed that she has banned library books, speaks in tongues, said that the Iraq war was God's will, cut spending for mentally disabled children, cut funding for pregnant teens, and on and on.

All have since been proven to be either taken out of context (Iraq war and God's will) or bald-faced lies. The New York Times had to run an apology. How about the rest of you?

Don't forget the insult thrown at her when South Carolina's Democrat Party Chairwoman Carol Fowler said, "Her primary qualification seems to be that she hasn't had an abortion." Pretty classy, huh?

She's one of yours and had to issue an apology.

  • Schreibman tops Chris Gibson on women's issues

    As the time to vote draws near, we need to remember how money can run politics more than we can. Raising funds is a prominent (if not the dominant) task of getting elected. Raising issues is also crucial, but those efforts are subject to distortion and fear-mongering.

  • Romney focuses on self; Obama emphasizes unity

    Mitt Romney criticizes President Obama for saying a person's success is rooted in his community, and is not all his alone. Romney belittles this with his belief in individual initiative. He is better at the put-down than the push-up.

  • Romney shows little regard for common man

    The Republicans in Congress have voted over and over, 33 times, redundantly and uselessly, to rescind what they call Obamacare.

  • Scouts' gay ban creates problem where none exists

    The Boy Scouts of America's "emphatic reaffirmation" of its vow to exclude any and all homosexuals from its hallowed ranks is ill-considered and pathetic, especially in view of its having reviewed the matter for two years.
