Sarah Palin Mocks 'Agenda-less Media' for Leaping to Hillary's Defense Against Rove

The Washington Post noticed that Sarah Palin went after the media again on her Facebook page over their protective response to Karl Rove's questioning of Hillary's head injury. (Drudge picked up the story.)

"Hey! Hillary’s brain is off-limits! Leave her health records alone! Democrats are right – scouring records of a female candidate is just politics of personal destruction, and for the media to engage in it would be unfair, unethical, and absolutely UNPRECEDENTED," she cracked (her caps). "You can’t probe a woman like that because, well, it’s a war on women!"

Palin mocked how the "objective" media would never do what they actually did in suggesting Palin didn't give birth to her son Trig:

America, you deserve fair and consistent coverage of relevant issues before deciding a Presidential/Vice Presidential ticket, so have faith the agenda-less media will refuse to push whispers and wildly inaccurate information about a partisan politician’s body part. Goodness, no one credible would print lies, continually harass a candidate’s doctor, disrupt local hospital staff, or even offer to pay locals to give “quotes” about her health records to be included in a “research book” by a public university professor (your tax dollars at work?) which the candidate’s attorney will need to respond to....

With enormous issues to debate before choosing a Presidential/Vice Presidential ticket, have confidence no mean-spirited salaciousness will be pushed by “real journalists.”

Nope. This just doesn’t happen at this respectable level of American politics.

Just ask me. And Trig.
