The following is from Sarah Palin’s Facebook page:
People are asking me to comment on yesterday’s Fox show that felt like another kick in the gut. Bristol was one who asked what I thought of the show that mocked her baby brother, Trig (and/or others with special needs), in an episode yesterday. Instead of answering, I asked her what she thought. Here is her conscientious reply, which is a much more restrained and gracious statement than I want to make about an issue that begs the question, “when is enough, enough?”:
When you’re the son or daughter of a public figure, you have to develop thick skin. My siblings and I all have that, but insults directed at our youngest brother hurt too much for us to remain silent. People with special needs face challenges that many of us will never confront, and yet they are some of the kindest and most loving people you’ll ever meet. Their lives are difficult enough as it is, so why would anyone want to make their lives more difficult by mocking them? As a culture, shouldn’t we be more compassionate to innocent people – especially those who are less fortunate? Shouldn’t we be willing to say that some things just are not funny? Are there any limits to what some people will do or say in regards to my little brother or others in the special needs community? If the writers of a particularly pathetic cartoon show thought they were being clever in mocking my brother and my family yesterday, they failed. All they proved is that they’re heartless jerks. – Bristol Palin”

The whole business is sickening.  But most of the comments to Sarah Palin’s note are supportive, uplifting, and insightful.  Like this one:

(By Anthony JC)
What can one say of a line of thinking that destroys families while claiming to save them (welfare), that deprives tens of millions of potential human beings of life (abortion) while claiming to preserve the rights of their mothers? It is not only based on a lie. It professes to advance human progress by validating the weaknesses in human beings and calling it progress. It is a gutless choice that claims to elevate mankind by reinforcing our base instincts without any call to virtue. Moreover, it shamelessly and narcissistically lays claim to a moral superiority that is false and even diabolical.
Governor Palin and her family are hated by these corrupted people because she is emblematic of a great majority of Americans who until recently have been silent, but who are now finding their voice in people like Sarah Palin and others. The Palin haters are lashing out at what she symbolizes. America is now undergoing a political exorcism. As in a real exorcism, before the demon is driven out, it is forced to reveal itself.
All Americans of conscience know Trig Palin is as innocent and pure as innocent can be. But to Palin’s tormentors, Trig is a horrifiying reminder of their inhumanity. Baby Trig has held up a mirror to the Liberal face and the reaction we now see to Gov Palin and Trig is as much a reaction of Libs to themselves as it is to anything else.

Indeed.
