Don’t Wait By the Phone

Bristol Palin demonstrates that the political gene may run in the blood of the Palin women.  On her blog she posted this open letter to President Obama:

You don’t know my telephone number, but I hope your staff is busy trying to find it. Ever since you called Sandra Fluke after Rush Limbaugh called her a slut, I figured I might be next.  You explained to reporters you called her because you were thinking of your two daughters, Malia and Sasha.  After all, you didn’t want them to think it was okay for men to treat them that way:

“One of the things I want them to do as they get older is engage in issues they care about, even ones I may not agree with them on,” you said.  “I want them to be able to speak their mind in a civil and thoughtful way. And I don’t want them attacked or called horrible names because they’re being good citizens.”

And I totally agree your kids should be able to speak their minds and engage the culture.  I look forward to seeing what good things Malia and Sasha end up doing with their lives.

But here’s why I’m a little surprised my phone hasn’t rung.  Your $1,000,000 donor Bill Maher has said reprehensible things about my family.  He’s made fun of my brother because of his Down’s Syndrome. He’s said I was “f—-d so hard a baby fell out.”  (In a classy move, he did this while his producers put up the cover of my book, which tells about the forgiveness and redemption I’ve found in God after my past – very public — mistakes.)

  • There will come a day when all the talking and opinionating will be done and over with. Revelation 20:11-15

    11* Then I saw a great white throne and him who sat upon it; from his presence earth and sky fled away, and no place was found for them. 12 And I saw the dead, great and small, standing before the throne, and books were opened. Also another book was opened, which is the book of life. And the dead were judged by what was written in the books, by what they had done. 13 And the sea gave up the dead in it, Death and Hades gave up the dead in them, and all were judged by what they had done. 14 Then Death and Hades were thrown into the lake of fire. This is the second death, the lake of fire; 15* and if any one’s name was not found written in the book of life, he was thrown into the lake of fire.

  • I thought Rush’s apology should have gone somenting like:

    “I apologize for taking you at your word.”

  • If this letter were written by someone on the left I doubt that it would have been so respectful. The girl was brought up well and has respect for those she disagrees with. This is THE THE THE reason I was never able to stay with the left for so long. IMHO they spew hate…(Bill Maher, Dodd, Frank, Pelosi, et. al.) and the logic of most of the arguments comes mainly from emotion and not well reasoned logic.

  • ‘Eating words has never given me indigestion.’ – Winston Churchill. Is there one human being on earth who has never regretted saying something? Rush has been on the air 23 years and what’s remarkable is that his one verbal faux pas — mild in my estimation and not entirely off the mark — is so conspicuous. Bill Maher and other leftist idiots are serial abusers of the language and, because of this, are rarely taken to task.
