Sarah Palin Vows To Stop Whining About Her Attackers, Then Lashes Out At Bill Maher
Sarah Palin said she was no longer going to “whine” about those who direct “personal, vulgar, sexist venom” her way. First, she said she was “through whining” about a liberal press. Then, in a Tweet, she narrowed that down by saying she’d defend others who are attacked, but not respond to “personal coverage.” But that vow didn’t prevent her from lashing out at Bill Maher as “an annoying little mosquito.” Jon Bershad has the tale of how she responds by saying she’s not going to respond:
“Upon my return from an outstanding and productive trip to India and Israel, I’ve been inundated with requests to respond to petty comments made in the media the past few days, including one little fella’s comment which decent people would find degrading. (I won’t bother responding to it though, because it was made by he who reminds me of an annoying little mosquito found zipped up in your tent; he can’t do any harm, but buzzes around annoyingly until it’s time to give him the proverbial slap.)”
Bershad helps us understand:
See? That’s totally different than responding. That’s just spending a paragraph talking about how you’re not responding while comparing your enemy to a bug.
It’s also not whining. Palin’s post, entitled “Lamestream Media: Reload or White Flag?”, helpfully explains her new modus operandi to those who worried that she’d have nothing to say now that she was through “whining about the liberal press.”
When someone attacks you, vow not to respond. Then, just say, “I’m not going to respond to that little bug that called me a “dumb … ” Beautifully done.
