    Sarah Palin is at it again - stating the case directly, with both force and conviction.

    Her strongly worded post on Facebook gives an aggressive rebuke of the AP's decision to run a photo of a a US Marine in the midst of dying due to injuries sustained in battle. The Marine's family had requested the photo not be published - the AP ignored that request.


    It should be noted, this is the same AP that refused to publish cartoons of Muhammed, stating to do so would be "offensive".

    And on the same day Obama gave his speech to students, Palins remarks are quickly dispatching the President to minor news. Time Magazine placed Palin's remarks as the #1quote of the day - the president following behind her.

    Well said Mrs. Palin...


    "Many of us join Secretary Gates in condemning the Associated Press for its heartless and selfish decision to turn its back on the wishes of a grieving family in order to exploit the tragic death of a true American hero.

    Lance Corporal Joshua ‘Bernie’ Bernard was a selfless young American who sacrificed everything for our freedom.

    Shame on the AP for purposely adding to the grieving family’s pain. Ignoring the family’s wishes by publishing a sacred image of their loved one proved a despicable and heartless act by the AP. The family said they didn’t want the photo published. AP, you did it anyway, and you know it was an evil thing to do.

    Our thoughts and prayers are with the Bernard family. Words can not adequately express our sorrow and appreciation for your sacrifice. We will never forget your Marine or his fallen comrades.

    May God bless the Bernard family."

    Who The Fuck Cares!?!?

    Seriously, are you just going to keep posting everything that joke says? What does this have to do with anything? Palin didn't "take on" the AP, and she sure as shit didn't "trump" Obama. Do a google search - there are 17 news stories about Palin's remarks. There are 2,745 news stories on Obama's speech to schools.

    You, and this thread, fail.

    Classy post.

    Anything to back that up? Or, are you taking a page out of Alinsky's Rules - ridicule rather than argue? Cause that's what it looks like to me.

    Well, if I'm part of the "bedwetter squad", you must be part of the "sucking Palin's dick" squad, because every other thread you start is about her.

    Actually your initial response showed the very applicable indication of that post.

    And all the while, the Palin statement is generating the news cycle buzz.

    Maybe tomorrow's healtcare speech can get Obama back on the front page - though he may not care for the reaction to said speech...
