More Evidence That the "Mainstream Media" is Out of Touch With Our Values
Who didn't respond with a heartfelt "Awwwww, isn't that the sweetest thing?" at the site of Piper Palin licking her hand and then wiping her hand over her baby brother Trig's hair in order to hold his hair in place?
That is, who among normal people with a heart didn't respond that way?
Well, the mainstream media aren't "normal" people, and they certainly don't have hearts (at least not where the families of conservative politicians are concerned, as they've so aptly demonstrated over the past week). And the Piper Palin incident is no exception:
The MSM lives in a different house. Check out this candid admission from New York Times media reporter David Carr in his article in today's NYT [emphasis added]:In the press galleries at the convention, journalists wrinkled their noses in disgust when Piper, Ms. Palin’s youngest daughter, was filmed kitty-licking her baby brother’s hair into place.Perhaps better than anything, I'd say that illustrates the cultural gulf that separates the MSM from most Americans...
UPDATE (8 September)
Piper Palin for President 2044:
I love the Rudy (as in Reuttiger, not Giuliani) music that accompanies this video.
