Saran Palin VS John Kerry: trading insults over Mark Sanford scandal

In pro-wrestling feuds between wrestlers usually start from the most innocuous of circumstances. A misplaced bump, an unintentional interference or a light joke at the expense of another. If the other party takes offense they will retaliate verbally by cutting promos or physically interfere in kind, a feud develops and they may go back and forth for weeks. In wrestling parlance this is known as "starting a program".

It seems a program is developing between 2004 Democratic Presidential nominee John Kerry and 2008 Republican Vice Presidential Nominee Sarah Palin. John Kerry kicked things off by making a crack against Sarah Palin in commenting on the then-disappearance of Governor Mark Sanford:
Sen. Kerry jokes: ‘Too bad’ Gov. Sarah Palin didn’t go missing
U.S. Sen. John Kerry must have been channeling his inner Letterman yesterday.

The Bay State senator was telling a group of business and civic leaders in town at his invitation about the "bizarre" tale of how South Carolina Gov. Mark Sanford had "disappeared for four days" and claimed to be hiking along the Appalachian Trail, but no one was really certain of his whereabouts.

"Too bad," Kerry said, "if a governor had to go missing it couldn’t have been the governor of Alaska. You know, Sarah Palin."
Speaking to a group of servicemen in Kosovo, Governor Sarah Palin fired back at John Kerry with a dig of her own

Kerry's a dullard of long standing. The only reason he made his crack was to get attention. He knows that anything about Palin gets reported. Palin firing back at him is perfectly fine. Why the leftist loons are going crazy over what Palin said about Kerry, and before that Letterman, is that she doesn't play by their rules. Their rules specifically say that if you are conservative, you have to just take whatever the media and their allied bloggers say about you, but Palin fights back. Good for her. It's about time someone doesn't go along to get along. Too bad the McCain campaign just went along and didn't fight back.
