    I would agree with all of that up until this point. I think considering some of the things she makes important issues to her, from a personal inspiration, it would be odd if she were silent.

    I also don't see any "harping". I see a statement that she made on her facebook page. Basically the equivalent of one blog posting.

    How is that "harping" on a subject?

    I find this highly amusing. First that anybody cares what this idiot says. Second, that a woman who claimed she was pregnant when she claimed her water broke would take 2 flights, for what 8 hours, and then drive past qualified maternity hospitals to a small clinic to supposedly have her baby. That a woman who publicly showed such an abundance of lacking any common sense, or concern for the health of her unborn baby, is offended at anybody's actions is the height of hypocrisy. Amusing as hell tho.

    How does any of the choices she made to have her baby back in Alaska, her home, have anything to do with this thread? Other than your glaring motivation to just smear and denigrate without adding anything of value to the topic, that is...

    Tell you what...if I create a thread for the PDS crowd to just go to and throw mindless, ranting insults out at Palin...a special playpen for you guys to just go in there and rave and mouthfoam away to your heart's content...can we keep the legitimate Palin threads on point?

    I think people should respect and follow Obama's example...be a little more thick skinned. When his former crack dealer said that Obama was gay and enagaged in sucking on more than the crackpipe in the back of the state limo, Obama didnt get all offended and demand an apology for gay people...nor did he get all rightous and indignant and insist he wasnt gay...just a crackfiend...

    Touche, and you are correct sir on the harping. She has not, and its wrong for me to assume she'll follow the same path as she did concerning letterman and other things where she brings it up in interviews, news shows, website, etc.

    If this is all she says about it and that's it, I still feel its a bit hypocritical ("I dislike the PC police....unless it has to do with a subject I'm heavily involved in, then its full go in making people be PC!") but light in the scope of hypocrisy if it was one facebook comment and that's it.

    Well, let's see. The very first word of this thread is "Palin". So, it would make sense that a response to the OP would include something about...ummm... Palin.

    Second, the OP is all about this Palin character judging another person for his behavior. Seems to me that her behavior would come into play here to see if she has any credibility in judging anybody. Turns out she doesn't. Her actions when she claimed she was in labor illustrate why she is in no position to judge anyone else, for starters. Sorry if I shone a light on your heroine's hypocrisy.

    Does that stance still apply if she is led into that topic by a question of the interviewer?

    Actually, I hope this is all she says about it. I read the page and, while I don't really believe in being all PC either, I do think that there are boundaries when speaking in mixed company. I consider what Rahm said, not to be bigoted or intentionally hurtful, but to be less than appropriate for the venue.

    And while this isn't really relevant to the debate, I can just imagine the nasty responses he most likely made toward both Palin and her child behind closed doors after hearing about this.

    That man is a classless thug. He's kinda known for it.
