Skip to comments.Palin Camp Fires Back at Washington Post
Posted on 02/04/2010 5:20:31 PM PST by curth
Sarah Palin, the former Governor of Alaska, Republican mega-star and Fox News contributor, was quick to fire back at Washington Post blog, The Plum Line, for a report that Palin is at war with conservative radio talk show host Rush Limbaugh.
Sarah Palin spokesperson Meg Stapleton told Fox, "The Washington Post is trying hard to take the pressure off the White House by creating a side controversy, but it is missing the point: as the Governor has said, it doesn't matter who says the "r" word: it should no longer be part of our lexicon."
Limbaugh used the "r" word repeatedly during his daily radio show yesterday. When the Palin camp was asked for comment by the Washington Post, they replied via e-mail that,Governor Palin believes crude and demeaning name calling at the expense of others is disrespectful.

I think Limbaugh both dispelled, and had some fun with, this B.S. from the drive-bye’s.
He set them up again...one hand tied.
He does have fun with the truths.
Sarah is taking this way too hard.
She needs to keep her attention
on the azzhat that started the name
calling, not the person making fun of
She isn’t aiming at Limbaugh, it was an attempt to put a divide between them that didn’t work.
Hooray for the internet. The media can’t do an ‘Alinsky Freeze’ on Sarah!
ok... i missed Rush
what’s the ‘r’ word? (not mentioned in the article and i have not heard of this ‘controversy’)
Sorry. The “r” word has been banned from the public lexicon, effective immediately. You’ll have to stick with four-letter “r” words like . . .
Rahm said the ultra left was acting like “F***ing Retards” And Rush was pointing this out.
So of course it is Rush’s fault. So the “r” word is retard.
[...it doesn’t matter who says the “r” word...]
Did someone use the word rigger? (those ba$tards)

WaPo Hires Lefty Blogger Greg Sargent, Foe of Conservative ‘Wingnut Mendacity’
Greg Sargent, who worked for the Bush-bashing blog Talking Points Memo and for a time wrote a poor-mans-Media-Matters blog called “The Horses Mouth” attacking the idea of liberal media bias, will work on a new Post website:
Sargent signed off to his hard-core liberal readership this way:
I’m heading over to The Washington Post, where I’ll be writing the lead blog on a new site that WaPo is launching. This will drive you mad with curiosity, unfortunately, but the details on the new site and blog will only be forthcoming when it launches the week after next.
In response to saddened TPM readers, asking him if hed back to the partisan blogging for 2012, he said “all I can say is I really hope to be part of TPM again...”

Yes, it’s very funny that 99% of GOPers or whatever don’t think Obama is human but pissing on GOP base won’t help Dems solve their problems

I don’t know if anybody watched ‘Burn Notice’ tonight, but there was a guy in the episode who was referred to numerous times as “the retard”. Okay, it was a bad guy who wanted to use him as a chump who kept referring to him as “the retard”, but the timing of this broadcast was interesting, to say the least.
