For anyone who thinks the Palin's aren't all about staying in the limelight here's another tidbit brought to you from the family that just won't go away. And the fact that she can't see the difference only highlights their ignorance.

So attacking Bristol Palin in 2008 was beyond the pale.
When the attacker is a $1,000,000 donor to the Obama superpac in 2012 everything is OK.
How hard is it to say it's despicable when done by left or right?

How was that an "attack" on Obama?

Bristol is right on this one. Yep, do I really have to spell it out?? It was Obama who wanted to set the tone as far as how he would want his daughters treated - and typical duplicit BS. The theme is obvious and consistent, folks, once you see it for what it is.

I didn't really expect any of the Palinites in here to catch the distinction but Bristol has followed in her mother's footsteps and made herself into a media figure. I'm not saying what Bill Maher said was right....it wasn't, but I think the unmarried mother who has made a career off of her premarital sex demanding an apology from Obama isn't quiet the same thing as as Sandra Fluke. But then again, I don't expect the right wing to see the difference.

The people twisting themselves in knots trying to explain the difference should probably quit while they're ahead. They're not winning. This whole Fluke incident wound up backfiring on the Left, making them appear inconsistent and hypocritiical. All it did was underline and highlight the fact that there are two different sets of rules, and this glaring double standard doesn't jibe with most reasonable people.

It's just what we've known all along. All the calls for "civility" are aimed only at the Right because the Left has enjoyed their own set of rules. Those days might be numbered.

Very well stated by this young woman and very much on the mark. I am not bashing Obama but he should return Maher's money for there being a double standard. I hope that the young Miss Palin goes on to bigger and better things. The Unites States needs more young ladies like her.

Actually McCain should cal Bristol and apologize to her for his staff picking and putting her unqualified and ridiculously stupid mother on the ticket thus exposing her (Bristol) to public ridicule.

Neither, and you forgot to mention Fox News. Just sitting back and observing. Why shouldn't there be one set of rules that everybody follows?

How come this is never on the supporters of the person in question, only the ones that disagree? Judging by their respective Facebook pages and twitter feeds, Bristol and her mother have a ton of fans. How come no one ever asks them why they care? Don't they give them attention?

"fans"?

well, yeah, I guess someone is giving them attention. Must be, they're tabloid fodder.

these threads, these people with no talent getting all these "fans" and attention, it reminds me of those "magazines" at the checkout counter; "Angelina Grows Third Boob, Brad Goes WILD".

that type of thing...

me, I couldn't care any less. I have too much to do just to get by and meet my responsibilities.

When Limbaugh called Chelsea Clinton the White House dog and Bill Maher was still doing stand up in two-drink minimum comedy clubs, who was the liberal who gave Limbaugh supporters the exemption to rationalize away everything he says?

Letterman did a seven minute apology to Bristol Palin. Ed what's his face apologized to Laura Ingraham and was off the air for a week. Limbaugh "apologized" by blaming it all on the Left, saying he "stooped to their level."

This "where was the outrage..." in those particular issue is so fake. You could count on less than one hand the amount of conservatives that cared what Bill Maher said about anything until they needed an out to justify something their hero said. It's hilarious.

If they are indeed the same, Maher and Limbaugh, I haven't head any conservatives say that at the core, Limbaugh is a comedian. Quite a bit of political clout for a comedian.

From reading comments at Sarah Palin's Facebook page and tweets in her twitter feed, that's not the type of "fan" I see. Oh well.

I don't twitter, I don't read or listen to Sarah/Bristol/anything Palin.

now, if you'll excuse me, I've wasted 10 minutes on this that I'll never get back.

Conservatives don't want to see Maher, Shultz, ect taken off the air. I haven't seen any. I don't care what any of them say, but I think Conservatives merely want to see the same standards and rules apply equally to anybody on the air. For example, if Obama is going to denounce certain comments he should denounce the same type of comments coming from the Left. Either everybody should be allowed crude commentary or nobody should. That doesn't seem unreasonable.

Just because you don't, doesn't mean there aren't people that do.

There are a whole lot of people that respect, admire and follow Sarah Palin and her family, which is my point here.

Who isn't being "allowed" anything? No one is taking Limbaugh off the air. He's been saying crude things for over 20 years. Good Lord. There's liberal hate everywhere. I hear it every day. I see it every day. Work, extended family members, bumper stickers, signs, Facebook, twitter, radio, TV, I see it everywhere. No one is not being allowed anything. It blows me away that so many conservatives demand these perceived double standards be rectified to their liking but abjectly REFUSE to turn that same type of examination on themselves.

Show me one Limbaugh boycott and I'll raise you 50 boycotts by "family" groups that want to control everything everyone sees and hears.

Many times I have tried to start the conversation towards just who and what Limbaugh is. That gets brushed off with "they're all the same."

Clear Channel, Limbaugh's boss, is owned by Bain Capital. You do know who founded Bain Capital, don't you?

OK, just as I figured. You're avoiding the topic by nitpicking the word "allowed" when you know exactly what I mean. Everybody knows there's a blatant double standard that exists between what commentators on the Left and the Right are "allowed" to say, and I don't mean somebody's mike being turned off for it. Why can't you just admit it?

What's so outrageous about the same set of rules finallly applying to everybody -- Right, Left, Middle? Denounce one, denounce them all. Excuse one, excuse them all.

Respectfully, you ignore 99% of the questions I ask in these conversations. But, anyway...

I don't see it. I just don't. Let's look back in history. There are specific instances where public figures have been fired or have been subject to intense ridicule for things they have said in public. Usually, it seems that they tend to be racial remarks, going back to Al Campanis or Howard Cosell, a politician here and there, or Limbaugh on NFL Countdown, or Imus. There's probably quite a few more, but I hope you get the idea.

Limbaugh is still on the air, isn't he? Who has silenced anyone? I honestly don't get it. Not being a smart-a$$, I just don't. People say (as is their right as long as it doesn't involve violence or other such extremities) nasty, vile things every single day.

This obsession with what other people do or don't do, the constant search for perceived hypocrises and demanding that this person or that person denounce this or that, that's what I think killed Andrew Breitbart. The stress of that he put on himself was insane. He was absolutely obsessed with it.

If where we are is this..."Hey, that's a double standard! I wanna insult people too!" then does it really matter who says what to who first? Who does or doesn't denounce what or who?

I'm sorry, but the reaction from the Right regarding Limbaugh's Fluke rant was "Yeah, but what about Bill Maher?" Or, put another way, "So are you but what am I?" The Right, in my opinion, ceded any moral high ground on the entire topic because it was clear that they had no issue with what Limbaugh said in the first place. Forgive this cliche filled paragraph, but are we now to say that two wrongs do make a right?

What rules? Everyone hates everyone when it comes to politics. You are free to hate liberals and progressives as much as you want. No one is denying you that right. There is no conservative persecution. There just isn't.

I would see a double standard if I saw some sort of wholesale silencing of views against people's wishes. I don't see that.
