Former half-term Alaska governor and Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin hit a new low — literally — on Sunday when she wrote on Facebook that she slipped and fell, cracking her head on a rock, then used the incident as a way to bash Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton.
“Rock-running recently, I tripped over my own two feet and crashed & burned face-first,” wrote Palin. “I recovered with the doc’s SuperGlue, and now any man who asks “what happened?” I’ll refer to as just a mean ol’ SEXIST bully.”
The post, titled “Leave Hillary Alone, Bullies,” was intended as an attack on Clinton for not being available enough to the press and on her defenders who have decried the media’s sexism toward the former Secretary of State.
“Aww, c’mon guys, give her a break. Anyone can be out of commission….for weeks on end… whilst in the heat of battle for the highest office in the land. No press conferences for nearly a year? No scheduled campaign events for days upon days? No statements, no answers, no accountability, no problem. Layin’ low to run out the clock before November, but you’re SEXIST for noticing it,” the post said.
“And you’re MISOGYNIST for questioning a female’s fitness,” she went on. “Good thing media didn’t hound the crap out of ’08 candidate John McCain for his decades-old military medical records or I’d guess them to be hypocrites.”
“Glad for Hillary’s protective media’s precedence. The next woman running for POTUS has no need to answer to much of anything, for we’ve got weddings to plan, and Down Dogs to do, and cookies in the oven! So just leave us alone, boys,” the post concluded.
The reflexive urge to attack Clinton in the midst of a health crisis is almost like the joke about former New York City mayor Rudy Giuliani’s failed presidential campaign. Everything that came out of his mouth, critics said, was “a noun, a verb and 9/11.”
Sarah Palin falls down, cracks her head, then out of her mouth come some random nouns, a verb salad and an attack on Hillary Clinton.
