Gov. Palin rejects entitlement mentality

The subject today is the journo-clown Matt Lauer recently sitting down with Gov. Palin over the Letterman remarks and other topics. Gov. Palin gave a telling response to a question about whether she should have first dibs at chairing the GOP.

"Oh, heck no. No. Nobody's entitled to that right of approval. There's no entitlement that's accepted, I believe, in our party and that's another nice thing about the principles of the GOP," Palin said.

"You have to walk the walk and not just talk the talk. Your actions have to speak louder than words. Your accomplishments have to speak for what it is that you stand for and no, nobody's entitled to any kind of front-running position in the GOP."

Other extremely telling points: 1) In this era of the apology as the genuflection of choice (it got its start in the p.c. crowd), Palin didn't succumb to being drawn into the victim game. Instead, she said, "I connect the dots to a degrading statement made about young women and that does contribute to some acceptance of abuse of young women. He doesn't have to apologize to me. I would like to see him apologize to young women across the country for contributing to that thread that is throughout our culture that makes it sound like it's ok to talk about young girls that way."

2) She also highlighted the double standard that allows her family to be fair game in the hopelessly info-tainment skewered media, when then candidate-Obama "the candidate who must be obeyed" said that "Family's were off-limits" during the campaign.

Per an ABC News article by David Chalian and Rick Klein, "Palin went on to describe a second double standard as the 'acceptance of a celebrity being able to get away with a disparaging comment that does erode a young girl's self esteem and does contribute to some of the problems we have in society.' "
