No politics on 9/11 — except Sarah Palin’s disrepectful interview on ABC




All day long, we kept hearing that the presidential campaigns were honoring 9/11 by avoiding politics.

Why did Sarah Palin violate the “no politics on 9/11” rule? I mean, she could have done the ABC interview any day — yet, she chose 9/11. Her blatant disrespect for this date should not go unchallenged.

I know it’s ok if you’re a Republican, but imagine the screeching we’d hear if one of the Democrats did one of the biggest political interviews of their career on this day. The traditional media would be in a frenzy. In fact, Jed reports that CNN was in a frenzy trying to figure out where Michelle Obama was today. See, for them, that’s an issue. Sarah Palin violating the rule, not an issue.
