Will the liberal media not have Sarah Palin to kick around anymore? In an interview Wednesday night on Greta Van Susteren’s TV show, Palin declared she’s “through whining about a liberal press,” and that she has “made my point.”
Van Susteren and Palin discussed Rep. Michele Bachmann’s (R-MN), response to her gaffe about placing the crucial Revolutionary War towns of Lexington and Concord in New Hampshire, when they are in fact in Massachusetts. Bachmann has argued that the media plays up the gaffes of conservative women such as herself while ignoring similar slips from liberal politicians.
“Yes, of course women are held to a different standard in all areas,” said Palin. “But my point is gonna be — so what? You know, let’s just work harder, produce more, produce better, and get over it. You know, I am through whining about a liberal press that holds, especially conservative women, to a different standard. Because it doesn’t do me any good to whine about it. I made my point.”
Of course, considering how much of Palin’s public discourse involves attacking the “lame-stream media” and its perpetration of “blood libel” against her, will she have much left to talk about?”The key moment comes at the 0:45 mark:
Late Update: Palin now says that she will hold the “LSM” accountable “MORE THAN EVER” — when it comes to their unfairness toward other people.
