Sarah Palin’s spokesperson, Meg Stapleton, is reacting to the Plum Line report that the former governor took a shot at Rush Limbaugh over his use of the “r” word.

Sarah Palin spokesperson Meg Stapleton told Fox, “The Washington Post is trying hard to take the pressure off the White House by creating a side controversy, but it is missing the point: as the Governor has said, it doesn’t matter who says the “r” word: it should no longer be part of our lexicon.”

Limbaugh used the “r” word repeatedly during his daily radio show yesterday. When the Palin camp was asked for comment on Limbaugh’s actions by the Washington Post, they said,“Governor Palin believes crude and demeaning name calling at the expense of others is disrespectful.”

Palin officials say that is the same comment they have given reporters for a host of other instances where someone had used the “r” word and they are not singling out Limbaugh.

If it’s true that “it doesn’t matter who says the ‘r’ word,” shouldn’t that also apply to Rahm Emanuel?
