She Said Something

Sarah Palin said something. This is in response being called a hypocrite for criticizing Hillary Clinton last year for complaining about being "put under a microscope." At that time, Palin said that when there is “any kind of perceived whine” coming from a “woman candidate,” she thinks, "Man, that doesn't do us any good."

Then she quit because people were mean to her.

Today she said something about it.
What I said was, it doesn’t do her or anybody else any good to whine about the criticism. And that’s why I’m trying to make it clear that the criticism, I invite that. But freedom of speech and that invitation to constructively criticize a public servant is a lot different than the allowance to lie, to continually falsely accuse a public servant when they have proven over and over again that they have not done what the accuser is saying they did. It doesn’t cost them a dime to continue to accuse. That’s a whole different situation. But that’s why when I talk about the political potshots that I take or my family takes, we can handle that. I can handle that. I expect it. But there has to be opportunity provided for truth to get out there, and truth isn’t getting out there when the political game that’s being played right now is going to continue, and it is.
Uh. What?

She's like a monkey playing with words.

So...What I took away from that is that it's ok to say things when your bragging about lies to make them sound like truth, but when truth is told then the people saying it should make an effort to say something more flattering?

I'll give it a shot: Well Sarah it looks like your daughter is a horny teenage Myspace slut. On the other hand your grandchildren will probably be very well dressed
