At least I hope we haven't. One thing she said in an exclusive interview with the local (Anchorage) Fox News reporter who had the "experience" of going out on a fishing trawler with her is that most politicians have the luxury of facing their critics or the news media and saying "Leave my kids alone!" and she hasn't had that advantage.
I would say that she has taken what can only be described as felony-level battering from the national press corps and the leftwing blogsphere. And I do not want to hear from anyone the moral equivalency bullshit about what was said about Bill Clinton who admitted he was porking a chunky little intern nearly as young as his own daughter in the Oval office whilst on the phone with foreign leaders. It's a well known fact that blood flow can serve only one head at a time! Bill Clinton was blatantly lying to the American people and, worst of all, he was lying to a Grand Jury, which is called perjury and that is a FELONY in every state in the union.
Sarah Palin is an extraordinary woman. Liberals and especially the feminist nutbags hate her guts because she is beautiful, accomplished and tough as they come. If she lets some of the irrational hatemongering to die down a bit and removes herself from the constraints of public office, those who have been piling on the insults and calumny may find that they have really picked on the wrong woman. She served notice through her attorneys that anyone who prints false accusations (such as the one currently bouncing around in the leftwing blogs that she is soon to be indicted by a Federal Grand Jury - a charge that the FBI itself has labeled as absolutely without merit) will find themselves in a courtroom being sued for big bucks. You go Sarah! Sue the bastards! Removing their ill gotten gains from their pockets is the best way to shut them the hell up!
