Truths and lies in Sarah Palin's world
$arah Palin is threatening to sue our friend Gryphen for libel over a blog post about the state of her marriage.
The bloggers have written much more serious stuff about her since August 2008.
We spoke about her "pregnancy", and some blogs are entirely dedicated to the subject. Not a squeak out of her attorney.
We wrote about her complete lack of ethics, her cronies, her vindictiveness, her clothes, her hair, tattooed lips and eyebrows. Apart from protesting that questioning her ethics is a frivolous pursuit, nothing.
There were many posts all over the place about how she uses members of her family as props and about the babies being sedated for public appearances.
Again, no denials, no threats of lawsuits.
We questioned her mental health on several occasions. Silence.
Recently there have been threats of lawsuits regarding rumours about investigations, but they didn't come to anything.
The examples above were taken from the more civilized blogs. I wonder if $arah Palin had a look at the less savoury ones...
Let's play the devil's advocate for a moment. Let's say Gryphen was misled and reported something false. $arah Palin and her advisors couldn't let this falsehood stand and are taking decisive action.
If this "falsehood" is the only one that warrants a lawsuit, does that mean everything else is true, including stuff from the less ethical bloggers?
