But, as double standards go, this is ridiculous. As reported by the legal blogger, Legal Insurrection, Sarah Palin's father gave an interview with the BBC, detailing death threats against the Palin family:
Palin's father Chuck said a man recently had sent the family photocopies of a receipt for a gun he had bought, together with a photocopy of a one-way ticket to Alaska.
The family had laughed it off, but the man subsequently turned up in the state and was arrested by the FBI, Chuck said.
"We sleep with the guns," Palin's father admitted.
Interesting how the death threats against the Palins are not plastered all over the American media, how there is no outrage, and how the threats are not imputed to the entire Democratic Party and left-wing blogosphere, as was done with the ridiculous claims that Sarah Palin's electoral map had some connection to the shooting of Gabrielle Giffords.
