In the rush to protect Sarah Palin, the recently resigned governor of Alaska and 2012 presidential hopeful, a Murdoch propagandist has inadvertently made life even more difficult for her by trying to malign her detractors.
Australian Murdoch propagandist, Andrew Bolt, who runs a right-wing blog at Melbourne’s ‘Herald-Sun’, wrote: “When Sarah Palin resigned as Governor of Alaska, Leftist bloggers decided to slime her all over again, on the assumption that anything she did must be sinister.” Not content to simply say that ‘left-wing bloggers are trying to slime her’, Bolt is dim-witted enough to then actually quote those ‘left-wing bloggers’ repeating what he thinks is ‘slime’ and, not only that, links to the leftist bloggers sites. While all Bolt achieves on his blog is simply to whisk up anti-left sentiment and hatred among his die-hard regular core of right-wing bloggies that comment there, the left-wing bloggers that Bolt links to actually provide cold hard and very compelling comment and analysis as to why Palin really resigned – comment and analysis that is far more compelling than the argument that Bolt doesn’t even attempt to put up.
Palin, if she knew of Bolt’s blog, would be asking: “Who needs enemies when you have friends like Bolt?”
Well done, Bolt. Keep it up!
