SUCKING IT UP

Sarah Palin: No More Whining About Liberal Media

Sarah Palin has suffered her fair share of "blood libel" from the "lamestream media," but she's ready to put the past behind her. In an interview Wednesday night with Fox News' Greta Van Susteren, Palin announced she's "through whining about a liberal press," which, she says, holds conservative women to a different standard than men. The subject came up after Rep. Michele Bachmann flubbed historical details when talking about the American revolution. Bachmann has also argued that the media scrutinizes gaffes of conservative women and lets those of liberal politicians go under the radar. But Palin, who has made harping on the media a signature part of her persona, is giving it up. "There aren't enough hours in the day to be consumed with things like that, Greta! I, anyway, have got to be focused on things that I can do to help affect change in this country," she said.
