Sure, we’re all disgusted by Obama’s cynical use of his own daughters to silence his political opponents: “I want Malia and Sasha to be able to speak their minds without being attacked and called horrible names, but you Republican gals are on your own.” As repulsive and hypocritical as that was, just imagine how you’d feel about it if you’d ever been the direct target of a left-wing misogynist and Obama supporter like Bill “Million Dollar” Maher.
You don’t have to imagine it, because Bristol Palin tells you about it in an open letter to POTUS:
Dear President Obama,
You don’t know my telephone number, but I hope your staff is busy trying to find it. Ever since you called Sandra Fluke after Rush Limbaugh called her a slut, I figured I might be next. You explained to reporters you called her because you were thinking of your two daughters, Malia and Sasha…
But here’s why I’m a little surprised my phone hasn’t rung. Your $1,000,000 donor Bill Maher has said reprehensible things about my family. He’s made fun of my brother because of his Down Syndrome. He’s said I was “f—-d so hard a baby fell out.” (In a classy move, he did this while his producers put up the cover of my book, which tells about the forgiveness and redemption I’ve found in God after my past – very public — mistakes.)
If Maher talked about Malia and Sasha that way, you’d return his dirty money and the Secret Service would probably have to restrain you. After all, I’ve always felt you understood my plight more than most because your mom was a teenager. That’s why you stood up for me when you were campaigning against Sen. McCain and my mom — you said vicious attacks on me should be off limits.
Well, that was different, because he didn’t see any short-term political advantage in it.
Read the whole thing. You can’t shame the shameless, but you can remind everyone else that he is shameless.
