Sarah Palin mocked Democrats and the "lame-stream media" on Monday for declaring questions about Hillary Clinton's health off-limits, but reporting on rumors about Palin's relationship with her son, who has Down syndrome, during the 2008 presidential campaign.

The former Alaska governor and Republican vice presidential nominee also shared links on her Facebook page as evidence of "mean-spirited salaciousness" published by the media.

Hey! Hillary’s brain is off-limits! Leave her health records alone! Democrats are right -- scouring records of a female candidate is just politics of personal destruction, and for the media to engage in it would be unfair, unethical, and absolutely UNPRECEDENTED. You can’t probe a woman like that because, well, it’s a war on women!

Bunch of sexist, big meanies engaging in something heretofore unheard of, for shame.

America, you deserve fair and consistent coverage of relevant issues before deciding a Presidential/Vice Presidential ticket, so have faith the agenda-less media will refuse to push whispers and wildly inaccurate information about a partisan politician’s body part. Goodness, no one credible would print lies, continually harass a candidate’s doctor, disrupt local hospital staff, or even offer to pay locals to give “quotes” about her health records to be included in a “research book” by a public university professor (your tax dollars at work?) which the candidate’s attorney will need to respond to.

Thank goodness liberals are consistent in refusing to apply double standards, thanks to their disdain for hypocrisy -- so they’ll come through once again! Rest assured these self-designated protectors of what they obviously believe is the “weaker sex” needing protection in the political arena will elevate political discourse. Apparently, Democrats demand their next chosen one’s brain must be absent. Opposition -- go there exploring a liberal’s brain and you find nothing; or, find something and you’re just trying to distract voters from the REAL issues.
