Palinisms

Did Sarah Palin really say that?

Sarah Palin.

"What isn't fair, though, is when it's only one-sided, when it's only the conservatives, say, who get hammered away at those things that the press wants to know. You know, the perfect example of the media one- sidedness is Obama's record not being explored, his associations in the last campaign not being explored, and now revelations of maybe some of his upbringing, some of his background, certainly his associations, how they impact his world view and how that affects his decisions today."—on criticism from the media, in an interview with Fox News' Greta Van Susteren, May 19, 2011
