Sarah Palin picks at Hillary Clinton's 'brain injury'

Because no issue is settled until Sarah Palin weighs in on Facebook …

The former Alaska governor took to Facebook to give her thoughts on the controversy over Karl Rove’s comments about Hillary Clinton’s alleged “brain injury,” starting off with a sarcastic “Hey! Hillary’s brain is off-limits! Leave her health records alone!”

She continues, and takes a shot at theories she faced about her son Trig and her biological relationship to him:

“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!

Bunch of sexist, big meanies engaging in something heretofore unheard of, for shame.”

And about the brain:

“Thank goodness liberals are consistent in refusing to apply double standards, thanks to their disdain for hypocrisy – so they’ll come through once again! Rest assured these self-designated protectors of what they obviously believe is the “weaker sex” needing protection in the political arena will elevate political discourse. Apparently, Democrats demand their next chosen one’s brain must be absent. Opposition – go there exploring a liberal’s brain and you find nothing; or, find something and you’re just trying to distract voters from the REAL issues.”

This isn’t the first times she’s taken to Facebook to weigh in on a controversy. A few weeks ago, she went on there to defend her “baptizing terrorists” comment.
