Former Alaska Governor and vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin prepares to speak during a campaign rally for U.S. Senator John McCain (R-AZ) as Todd Palin (C) looks on at Dobson High School in Mesa, Arizona March 27, 2010. McCain who is seeking a fift
Just when you thought she'd disappeared from the political scene to spend more time gazing at Vladimir Putin from her backyard, Sarah Palin speaks out in defense of Karl Rove's smear on Hillary Clinton:
Sarah Palin mocked Democrats on Monday for crying foul over the suggestion that Hillary Clinton may have suffered a "traumatic brain injury" while there was no outcry over the conspiracy theories she faced about her biological relationship to her son.

"Hey! Hillary’s brain is off-limits! Leave her health records alone!" Palin wrote in a Facebook post. "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!"

Palin linked to articles from Politico and Salon about rumors that circulated when she was running for vice president suggesting she wasn't the real mother of her youngest son Trig, who has down syndrome.

Aside from the fact that senior Democrats never suggested that Palin wasn't Trig's mother, let alone anyone of the stature of Karl Rove or a Sarah Palin, by defending Rove's smear and then comparing it to Trig trutherism, the only logical conclusion you can draw is that Palin thinks Trig truthers were being reasonable and that Hillary should just go ahead and answer Dr. Rove's reasonable medical questions. It's what Palin would have done, right? Well:
Gov. Sarah Palin of Alaska, 44, Mr. McCain’s running mate, has released no medical information.
Thankfully, that's just an asterisk at this point. But it's still amazing to consider the fact that one of this country's two major parties nominated such an abysmally incompetent buffoon to be a heartbeat away from the presidency.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
