Never in my lifetime have I seen anything to beat what is going on right now with regard to all things Sarah Palin. I have heard some of the most racist, sexist and just downright nasty comments I have ever heard about a politician in the media--and they're getting a pass. Two nights ago I heard Ashley Judd, who I love to see in a good MOVIE, say "a woman voting for McCain/Palin is like a chicken voting for Col. Sanders."(BY THE WAY, ASHLEY--IN THE FUTURE DO NOT ASSUME YOU REPRESENT ALL WOMEN BECAUSE THIS MOM DOESN'T BELIEVE IN KILLING THE UNBORN OR MUCH OF ANYTHING ELSE YOU BELIEVE IN!!!) Canadians seem to think we care what they think, as journalist Heather Mallick weighs in, saying Sarah Palin looks like a "porn actress", and that "she isn't even female really", attacking her as "vicious and profoundly dishonest". Mallick also said that Republicans vote that way "to give themselves the only self-esteem available to their broken, economically abused existence"--this AFTER she called us "unlettered, white trash, and hicks". Palin's family wasn't immune either. The Canadian journalist attacked Bristol Palin, calling her "pramface", then calling her boyfriend an "f-in redneck". She attacked Track Palin saying he was absolutely "terrified" as he left for Iraq.
To put the icing on the cake, get this: on NBC Nightly News last night, NBC stooped to an all time low when they sent a reporter to Hanoi to find McCain's captors so that they could confirm McCain's story of torture and make sure he was telling the truth. Shock of all shocks...his torturers tell a different story. Imagine that! Our enemies denying torture! It isn't enough that the men who were tortured alongside John McCain tell the same story, NBC has to go speak with the enemy and air their propaganda on American television.
When is enough going to be enough? When are we going to get angry enough to stand up and speak out? I hope that what we've seen this last month is enough motivation...I've only given a sample of what's been said. It's nothing new, the media just isn't hiding their bias any longer, and they are no longer held accountable for journalistic malpractice (i.e. lying). We need to spend the next 24 hours praying for Sarah Palin like we haven't done thus far. Tomorrow night, the weight of the world will be on her shoulders. Millions will be watching, waiting to pounce if she makes even one misstep...all the while, Joe Biden (the walking "gaffe" machine) will get a pass no matter how poorly he performs. I look for Sarah to be who she is, true to herself and what she believes in--so, Sarah--in case we're fortunate enough for you to be reading this, we're praying for you and we're pulling for you 1000%! YOU GO GIRL! We KNOW you are going to ROCK THE HOUSE!!
