When Carol Costello went bananas over the audio recording of the Palin girl's complaints about being assaulted it was telling. Costello didn't just snap, it was premeditated. One has to assume that her mindset is quite typical of the people on the left, people who felt so smug bashing Sarah Palin and her family in 2008 in order to get Obama elected.
Costello knew her audience. And the complaints didn't come from them. That audience was quite content with a spokesperson willing to get out in public expressing their own feelings -- contempt so fluid it drools from their chins. They just needed a little confirmation every once in a while by someone in a position of media power so they know it's still OK.
And yet they try to accuse political opponents of waging a war on women. What a farce. It would make a great sitcom if these minions weren't leading us all down the road to serfdom.
