Sarah Palin: Double Standard Sarah Wants Special Treatment - But Just For Her

Remember when Republicans used to criticize Democrats for playing "identity" politics? Well the shoe's on the other foot. VP candidate "Double Standard" Sarah Palin sets the gold standard for "Do as I say, not as I do." Here's the very abbreviated list - I'm sure there's more!

Right to Choose
1) Palin is against a woman's right to choose, even in cases of rape or incest. Yet she describes her daughter's decision to keep her child as a "private choice." Only Double Standard Sarah's daughter gets to choose - yours won't if she gets elected.

The Double Standard Family
2) About that "private" bit -- Palin has been out there railing at the media for covering her family's travails. Then at the GOP convention the entire brood is trotted out as a living mosaic of "small-town family values"- including pregnant teen daughter and McCain photo-op participant fiancee Levi. Only Double Standard Sarah gets to exploit her family.

Animal Comparisons
3) Palin can compare an entire made up female demographic to dogs but when Obama dares to call out the McCain Bush policies for what they are - Lipstick on a Pig - her tender feelings are hurt. Could he mean her? Here I thought she was supposed to be a tough pit bull. Double Standard Sarah can Dish it out but she can't take it.

Wasteful Spending
4) Palin blathers on about how she's a fiscal conservative. On what planet? She took a small town from a surplus to $60 million in the red as mayor. She continues to lie about the chef she had as governor who continues to draw a paycheck and was never fired. Then there is the recent revelation that she had taxpayers pay her a per diem for staying in her own house at night - more than 300 times. Only Double Standard Sarah deserves earmarks and special payments for staying at home - wasteful spending.
