On the Pig/Lipstick Thing

When I saw it in writing this morning, I thought conservatives were blowing it way out of proportion. When I heard the audio, I think it was pretty clear that he was referring to Palin. The crowd certainly thought so, and I don't think he was caught by surprise.

That being said, like I just said in that last post -- it's fine to cry foul. It's fine to point out the hypocrisy of the double-standard. We can point out stupidity. We can use sarcasm and other rhetorical tools to make our points. But let's not whine, and let's not demand apologies.

Let them stew in their own juices, as the old saying goes.

Don't jump in the pot with them.
