What would Jay-Z do?…

From USA Today:

Sarah Palin’s daughter Bristol, touring to promote her book “Not Afraid of Life,” tells “Christianity Today” that mom gets no respect from the media …

…because they’re envious of her. She’s got a good family, she’s got a good husband, she’s got awesome support, she’s got God on her side, and I think people are envious of that. They’re envious that she carries herself so well, that she’s smart. There are lots of vicious people out there.

Why does the title of Bristol Palin’s book have the swagger and defiance of a rap album that was “dropped” after the artist was released from prison?

Even her comments about her mother reek of the extreme paranoia and megalomaniacal disconnect from reality that is usually accompanied by clouds of pot smoke in the recording studio.

The media’s issue with Sarah Palin is envy and not just some responsibility to ask tough questions of public figures who choose to be public of their own volition? OK, envy it is. Let’s go with that.

Palin also has “God on her side” despite her being “too busy to go to church most Sundays.” I was under the impression that Palin was unemployed. One would think that the profession of being Sarah Palin would allow for Sundays off but there probably are not enough cameras at her local church to justify it.
