Sarah Palin wasn't too happy about what Joe Klein said about her on The Chris Matthews Show.

KLEIN: You know, I did—I did a little bit of research just before the show, it's no this little napkin here. I looked up the definition of sedition, which is "conduct or language inciting rebellion against the authority of the state." And a lot of these statements, especially the ones coming from people like Glenn Beck, and to a certain extent Sarah Palin, rub right next—right up close to being seditious.

Here's Palin's response crying to Sean Hannity on his show who Klein also called out but they didn't have much to say about...

PALIN: What a piece of work that Mr. Klein is for the piece that he wrote. That is something else. You know you would hope that the powers that be at a "quote un-quote" reputable organization like Time Magazine, that they would hold their employee and I assume Mr. Klein gets paid for the columns that he writes, that they would hold their employee accountable and they would actually ask him what is it that I or others in the conservative movement have said that would rise to the level of this inciting of violence and revolt and all these other things that evidently he claims.

For them to allow things like that to be printed just really discredits Time Magazine and other organizations that would allow that kind of rhetoric and false reporting. They're lies.

Sarah Palin apparently finds no irony in trashing Time Magazine for not holding their employees responsible for their words or what they write even though she works for a network that is nothing but a propaganda arm of the GOP and that has used racism and the Southern Strategy as a means to promote Republican candidates for office.

I look forward to Klein's response. He may not have gotten really specific during his statements on The Chris Matthews Show. That doesn't mean that Miss Reload should be allowed by the likes of Hannity, who Klein also called out during that segment, to dismiss the crap that's come out of her mouth. We've spent more than enough time documenting Sarah Palin and her hackery at C&L so I'm not going to rehash it here. There's just too much of it.

She and Hannity should not be allowed to be on our airways without disclaimers that right wing hatred is to follow. Sadly the same can be said for about every show on their network. I really do hope Klein responds to this nonsense. I'm no fan of Klein's since he's all too happy to promote Villager group think for my taste, but he was right to call out Palin in this instance.

Can you help us out?
