They have no shame or decency. It took all of a few minutes for them to use Geraldine Ferraro’s death as an opportuntity to vent their spleens at Sarah Palin.

Sarah Palin paid tribute to Ms. Ferraro:
Sarah Palin took to Twitter and Facebook Saturday to mourn the passing of Geraldine Ferraro, the first woman on a national ticket who “broke one huge barrier and then went on to break many more.”
“My family and I would like to express our sincere condolences to the family of Geraldine Ferraro,” Palin, the second-ever woman on a national ticket, wrote on her Facebook page, about a half-hour after she tweeted about the “sad” passing of Walter Mondale’s running mate.
“When I had the honor of working alongside Geraldine on election night last year, we both discussed the role of women in politics and our excited expectation that someday that final glass ceiling would be shattered by the election of a woman president. She was an amazing woman who dedicated her life to public service as a teacher, prosecutor, Congresswoman, and Vice Presidential candidate. She broke one huge barrier and then went on to break many more. The world will miss her. May she rest in peace and may her example of hard work and dedication to America continue to inspire all women.”
Speaking on Fox News, Palin recalled that she and Ferraro had discussed the possibility of a woman becoming president some day. “We were both excited about that,” Palin said.
Palin, the GOP vice presidential candidate in 2008, described herself as “standing on [Ferraro’s] shoulders.”
“She was able to pave the way for others,” Palin said. “We went before. She paved the way.”
Palin also said Ferraro “plowed through so many things that allowed the rest of us to progress,” and that she “embraces the idea of the pioneering spirit the America is all about.”
“We disagreed on some aspects of our politics,” she added, “but certainly agreed on the rights women have.”
The former Alaska governor also credited Ferraro for her work with cancer victims. “She was always out there trying to help others,” Palin said.
Sarah Palin has been a favorite target of the obsessed Left since she appeared on the political scene as a VP candidate. Her guts, class, patriotism, and take no bullshit approach, really gives leftwing assholes grand mal seizures.
