Sarah Palin had much to twit about in the aftermath of a recent rude remark made by Helen Thomas that the Jews should "get the hell out of Palestine" and her further statement that they should "go home" to Poland and Germany 65 years after the end of World War II. Helen Thomas shortly thereafter issued an apology and resigned.
Palin thought she had much to crow about and many she thought she could gleefully accuse:
"Helen Thomas press pals condone racist rant? Heaven forbid"esteemed"press corps represent society's enlightened elite; Rest of us choose truth"
Not satisfied with the satisfaction of pointing fingers at the press corp while oblivious to the fact they did not support these remarks, Palin continued to personally bash Helen Thomas, an 89 year old journalistic warhorse well past her prime and famous quick wit:
"Helen, Helen, Helen... unimaginable misunderstandng of Jewish history...& unconscionable indecency.Press corps colleagues calling u on this?" [5:27 PM June 4th Twitter]
How can you, Sarah Palin, in good Christian faith not ask yourself why you are so eager to vilify an old woman, one with a such a distinguised record, a career longer than your own life span, a career that helped to open up the possibility of your own future as a woman in journalism, for badly stating in her dotage beliefs held by many American people, Jewish and otherwise, when you are more than willing to forgive yourself and others of far, far worse as long as it benefits you or the Republican Party?
Sarah, Sarah, Sarah... there's an old saying,"Clean your own front stoop first." So ready to accuse the press when you should still be sending them thank you notes for not fully reporting your very own, not so very little, previous racist faux pas during your coming out party at the GOP National Convention and your present day use of Nixon's infamous "Jew counter" as your very own personal political advisor.
