GretaWire: Is Sarah Palin or Sally Quinn “putting family first”?

Posted by Adrienne Ross on February 20, 2010

By Adrienne Ross –

As I pointed out as recently as last night, Governor Palin is no stranger to double standards. The mainstream media loves to pull out a separate set of rules when it comes to her. Greta Van Susteren boldly points out another example of such bias in her article, “Who is ‘putting family first?’ Sarah Palin or Sally Quinn?”

Greta writes:

In July, Sally Quinn, columnist in the Washington Post, defended David Letterman for his comments about Governor Sarah Palin and her daughter. In doing so, she criticized Governor Palin. My “favorite” of her criticisms ? It is in bold blue text below. Read below and then you decide who is putting family first – the mother defending her child from the comments of a talk show host who coincidentally cheats on his wife? or the wife who conveniently schedules a wedding so that her husband can’t attend the wedding of a grandchild from a former marriage…and then writes a column to sugar coat it when it hits the gossip circuit in DC.

We report, you decide.

Here are Sally Quinn’s comments about Gov Palin…followed by a link to her explanation.

“…..Well, clearly, [Governor Sarah Palin] has not put her family first … And these children have, it seems publicly, to have been exploited by her in a, I think, really unfortunate way … She brings them all to the convention, including Trig, the baby. She brings the pregnant daughter with the boyfriend who clearly didn’t want to be there. She then travels around with the children, using them as sort of photo ops … she brings the children up when she needs them to shore up her own image…..” [MS/NBC]

So how does Sally Quinn compare to Sarah Palin? She has scheduled her son’s wedding on the same day as her husband’s grandchild from a previous marriage so now her husband must pick: his son or his granddaughter from previous marriage. Family first? or some deep seeded problem?


PS – you may notice the reference Sally Quinn made on MS/NBC about Governor Palin’s then “pregnant daughter” which seemed a bit of a slap at the family situation. In Quinn’s article, she reports her news about her son’s pregnant girlfriend and her reaction is that she is thrilled. I am sure she is thrilled – but was she being nasty about the Palin situation or not? We report, you decide.

Visit this article on GretaWire by clicking here.

I applaud Greta’s commitment to truth above all. She calls it like she sees it. Sally Quinn’s double standard is plain to see–so she gets called out.

People suffering from Palin Derangement Syndrome face one major danger: in their commitment to undermining Governor Palin and calling her actions into question, they draw attention to their own actions–and often theirs doesn’t stand up to serious scrutiny.

There’s a problem with wielding a double-edged sword: on the rebound, it usually comes back to smack you in the face.

  1. Here is a blog from FOX that I posted yesterday.

    Family Guy – Repulsive and Totally Disgusting
    Posted by Annie on Saturday, February 20, 2010 12:00:00 AM
    They are the [redacted], the ones who are without a real life – they prey on the helpless and bring disgrace to our Nation. Such is the animated cartoon created by ‘”Family Guy,” 36 year old Seth MacFarlane, which makes fun of Sarah’s special needs child. I’m sad to think that FOX would participate or approve of Seth’s disgraceful behavior. At the same time, there is a song online about “special needs” children that is laced with contempt for the less fortunate.

    Who were the [redacted] who wrote the song referring to special needs children – it is more than disgusting; its sick! There is no humor in this song – it reaks of evil intent and whom ever wrote this will have a day of reckoning! Can’t explain this phenomenum, but whatever goes around comes around, need I say more.

    Our special needs children are gifts from “God” and the famillies who are graced with this child are truely blessed. Thousands of these “special needs children” live in our United States and each one deserves respect, love and special attention. To Seth and those at “Family Guy,” I have but one more comment and it’s one that you carry in your hearts the remainder of your lifetime.

    “Jesus said, ‘Whatever you have done to the least of these my brothers, you have done to me.’

    May God Bless Our Country

    I’ll have to read GretaWire later, but my first impulse was to call it like it is: Sally Quinn has been the overbearing – actually, protective – mother of a mentally challenged son, making sure he had the best ghost writer for his own autobiography – and now actually scheduling her own son’s wedding! Hey, isn’t that the job of the BRIDE and HER family? – with, of course, input from the groom & his family.

    What Quinn has done, of course, is right up her snide alley – and she can’t seem to let go, even though she helped break up her husband’s first marriage. And THEY lived together for some time before he could marry her.

    Sadly, leopards don’t change their spots – and Sally Quinn has enjoyed a special place in the Beltway milieu. Well, Ben Bradlee got himself into this mess, so he does, indeed, have a big decision to make.

    I think Sally should certainly have kept her mouth shut throughout all the Palin-bashing – Quinn, of all people, knows what it’s like to raise a “spsecial needs” child. Like the teapot calling the kettle black, etc. etc.
