Reader: Why does columnist feel need to tear down Palin?

How can a human mind store up so much vile? I don't know whether Bob Franken's hair is whiter than mine, but he has a serious mind problem that won't let his mind wander from tearing down a woman who I thinks has much more character than he does. A whole column demonizing a person who has never done anything to him. I don't believe she has any criminal record like so many politicians of today have. I proudly had  the opportunity to shake her hand.

Not very many years back, I had a certain amount of respect for a whole bunch of writers, TV newscasters. And columnists.  But in the last decade, it is a mystery to me what has happened to the patriotism of the American people, and the news world.  It is OK for Bill Maher to use any filthy word which enters his wee mind about women,  after all, he is just a "comedian."  There are comedians and then there was a few Bob Hopes.

My mother tried to teach me not to hold judgement about others and to forgive them when things like this happen, but there are no old style mothers anymore and 50 percent of the children don't even have a family. Sad, sad.
