Here is what the dimwit says starting at the 2:15 mark:
"My family is no different than other families that are dealing with some of the ramifications of war. And just really appreciate people who will support our troops and make sure that they are treated better than illegal immigrants for one."
ABC then reports about the SarahPAC e-mail asking for more money so that she can keep traveling and " endorsing anti-establishment candidates who will not play politics as usual."
It kind of sounds to me as if ABC News is not buying the Sarah Palin mooseshit.
By the way Palin's remarks are so ridiculous and out of line that even the White House felt the need to chime in:
White House spokesman Josh Earnest, asked about the comments at a news briefing on Thursday, said the instinct of many people is to "make light" of some of the rhetoric on the campaign trail, particularly from Palin.
"The fact is domestic violence is not a joke. Gun violence is not a joke. Problems with addiction are not a joke and the ... sacrifices that many of our men and women in uniform make, for our safety and security, are not a joke."
Earnest said while the fodder may come easy, "in this case, the issues that she's talking about are quite serious and are certainly issues that we take quite seriously here."
And everybody SHOULD take PTSD seriously.
But just like Down syndrome, if Palin can use it to deflect criticism, then she WILL use it to deflect criticism.
