The Double Standard Rears its Head Again

To call the treatment of Governor Sarah Palin 'character assassination' would, I think, understate things a bit.

She's been attacked because of her religious beliefs; been attacked for her physical appearance; been attacked for her family; and even as I mentioned in my last post, attacked for reading a speech off a teleprompter.

Now, she's even being attacked for her accent.

It's incredible to behold when the liberal media's double standard is right out there where everybody can see it, and in a completely unapologetic way as well.

I can't remember the last time I saw an article examining a national candidate's accent as if such a thing should even require explaining.

It would seem like a better use of the media's time would be to explain what happened to all that TV footage of Franklin Roosevelt attempting to calm the nation.

Perhaps they've been hidden on an Amtrack train somewhere...

The linked Slate article was hardly a hit job; more like an academic look at the origin of her accent.
