It’s true. The Daily Beast is what it is, but we were still checking to see that this was the authentic account and not a parody site after seeing this tweet.
First of all, it’s no shocker that the editors of The Daily Beast aren’t Sarah Palin fans. But just so you know just how irrelevant Palin is, author Amy Zimmerman devotes the subhead and more than a paragraph to digs irrelevant to the topic at hand.
The formerly relevant vice presidential candidate turned reality star turned blogger Sarah Palin said something very stupid today.
After overreaching with a failed vice presidential campaign, Sarah Palin is back in her comfort zone—saying horrible things in shouty capital letters.
On Thursday, Palin stopped monitoring the Kremlin from her back porch to focus on more pressing matters of national security.
It’s true that Palin’s daughter Bristol did write a piece comparing the media attention given to Josh Duggar to that given to passages in Lena Dunham’s book. Dunham, though, is relevant enough to merit some quick Googling in her defense.
In her memoir “Not That Kind of Girl,” Dunham self-reported an incident when she examined her one-year-old sister’s vagina. She was seven at the time and, according to the American Academy of Pediatrics, touching and observing a new sibling’s genitals is a “normal, common” behavior in kids ages 2 to 6 (Dunham was 7, but still.)
Totally normal. Now, back to more pressing matters of national security.
