Schlessinger Attacked Palin in 2008

Sarah Palin doesn’t always hold a grudge, apparently: Palin took to Twitter to defend Dr. Laura Schlessinger after the talk-show host resigned for using the n-word 11 times in a single rant. “Don’t retreat…reload! (Steps aside bc her 1st amend.rights ceased 2exist thx 2activists trying 2silence”isn’t American, not fair”),” Palin tweeted. But Schlessinger hasn’t always been a fan of Sarah Palin. This is Schlessinger in 2008, when Palin was chosen as John McCain’s vice-presidential nominee: “I’m stunned—couldn’t the Republican Party find one competent female with adult children to run for vice president with McCain? I realize his advisers probably didn’t want a 'mature' woman, as the Democrats keep harping on his age. But really, what kind of role model is a woman whose fifth child was recently born with a serious issue, Down Syndrome, and then goes back to the job of governor within days of the birth?”
