You must read more carefully…….it was Sarah Palin who said that her younger daughter was the one mentioned in the joke……not the media elites or David Letterman.
Again, this represents a sort of misogynistic tendency that media elites have come to embrace — at least, when it comes to conservative women. And yet again over-zealous attackers tend to get a pass when their victims are conservatives. That’s not the case when the victim is a liberal.
In 2008, when MSNBC’s David Shuster made a passing comment about the Clintons “pimping out” Chelsea, you would have thought he had committed an unpardonable sin. Admittedly, his “street” language was crude, but the intent was merely to imply that the Clintons were using Chelsea to get publicity. That’s it.
Shuster apologized; Letterman won’t or in media elite circles I guess confusing Bristol Palin with her younger sister Willow is an apology.
The message is simple: Attacking Hillary and Chelsea was off limits, but attacking a conservative woman is just fine.
And again it’s cool to mock Palin because she’s a conservative.
