Well, she’s at it again. Sarah Palin just can’t stop whining about how the media dealt with her ditzy behavior and answers during the presidential election campaign. Despite the efforts of FOX news to paint her as a much-suffering victim of the “liberal” media, Palin’s recent comments about Caroline Kennedy show that Palin would still rather blame others than take any responsibility herself for her own lack of preparedness and knowledge.
Palin thinks there might be a “class” issue at work in the treatment of her vice-presidential candidacy and Kennedy’s senatorial quest. I bet mentioning class issues doesn’t go over too well with her Republican cohorts – after all, they are usually busy trying to convince everyone that the United States is class-free and everyone is equal. I can just see some of the upper echelons of the Republican party cringing as Palin utters the word “class” disparity.
Palin also recently opined that Katie Couric and Tina Fey have been “capitalizing on” and “exploiting” her. Excuse me, but it seems to me that Palin played right along with the SNL skits. After all, she didn’t have to appear. And, as to Couric’s interviews, some of the questions that Palin failed to answer could have been answered by a third grader – i.e. what do you read.
Palin can’t quite let us forget that she is a moose-hunting, pit bull with lipstick as she coyly says that when she sees some of the coverage of her daughter Bristol especially “the momma grizzly rises up in me.” Okay – we get it. You are from Alaska, and you tried to work your “aw shucks, you betcha” routine on the American public.
But, apparently, the American public wasn’t quite into Palin’s act as she had hoped. So now Palin has decided to insert herself into the political arena once again by whining about her coverage compared to the coverage of Caroline Kennedy. Palin might want to read and watch closely – Kennedy certainly isn’t getting any breaks, and I bet Caroline Kennedy will have enough class not to blame anyone else.
