Dan Riehl at "Riehl World View" wades in righteously on the Wonkette controversy"
"Wonkette's Ken Layne Can't Stop Digging, Ups The Ante
Whatever happened to kids being off limits in politics? I've already said I'm for free speech and I still am. I've denounced Layne in the past for being ugly and stupid when he surfaced because of his attacks on Michelle Malkin:
He and his friends at Wonkette have sunk to a new low (Guess insulting me with ping-pong ball jokes wasn’t enough).
So, what does he do by way of an alleged apology for his blogger? He attacks other Palin children and invokes "family values." What else would one expect? digging, dude. You've pretty much bottomed out, including with your advertisers: Papa Johns, Huggies, Vanguard Drop Ads on Blog Attacking Trig Palin. Still, it is only America's tradition of free speech that gives them the room they need to show us who they really are, or enough rope to hang themselves, if you prefer.
Anything involving Palin, I want to make it extra clear that *Palin* is the problem with America. Not her kids. Not her little kid, anyway. The older ones seem to be on their own path and you can’t really blame Sarah for it, although she certainly encourages the sleaziest possible from her grown children, which is hardly a very “family values” thing to do.
The vile website "Wonkette" which represents true liberal values launched a disgusting hit piece on an innocent child Trig Palin" on his birthday. I broke this story which has been picked up across the internet-including and has provoked a storm of protest. It is one thing to attack Sarah for her political views but attacking an innocent child and ascribing sexual perversion to his family is beyond any sort of allowable cut and thrust.
I suggested that people should contact the advertisers who post on Wonkette and suggest, politely that in the name of decency they pull their support-it is with pleasure that I see that has happened and the end result will be Wonkette will be hit where it hurts them most, in their income.
However,such is the "progressive" liberal mind that although, no doubt because of the loss of revenue, the editor has dimly perceived that they might have done something wrong and indefensible they still can't bring themselves to admit their error. As Dan Riehl point s out the so called apology has simply exacerbated the situation where the editor states that all Sarah and Todd's children indulge in "the sleaziest possible behaviour"
Here is a tribute to war veteran Track Palin on his 22nd birthday April 20th-only a "progressive" could term serving your country in a war zone "sleazy".
