Regarding the Sept. 24 letter "Liberal media myth just not true" by Gloria R. Greenbaum:
The report on Fox News that Barack Obama supported sex education in kindergarten was true. It was his denial that is a lie. He voted to pass the bill that required sex education be taught in public schools from kindergarten through grade 12. It did not specify that it would be limited to warning kindergarteners about inappropriate touching. So it was Obama who lied, not Fox News.
I know how Ms. Greenbaum feels about being trapped in a room having to listen to lies, because I had the same experience last week at the VA. I was exposed to eight hours of MSNBC's lies and expounding the media's swooning for Obama and their loathing of McCain and Palin. Every TV at the downtown VA was turned to "MSN-BS." Poor Charlie Norwood must be spinning in his grave.
But Ms. Greenbaum sinks to the depths of indecency when she questions Sarah Palin's motive for having a test to determine the health of her baby. That is routinely done for virtually every mother during their pregnancy. Women who believe life begins at conception do not have tests to determine if they want an abortion. The fact that Ms. Greenbaum asks, "Did she think that would make her more heroic in the eyes of the public?" shows how low she will go to discredit someone she obviously hates.
I agree with her that "Every American is entitled to a difference of opinion: that is a heritage which we all cherish, but we are not entitled to sling mud and tell lies for political advantage ..." So why is she slinging mud and telling lies about Palin? ...
You, dear lady, owe Sarah Palin a public apology!
