Consistency…Just Not Valued Anymore

Ben Smith has some fun with the McCain cries of sexism:

During the primary Sarah Palin chided Hillary Clinton for complaining about sexism.

“She does herself a disservice to even mention it, really,” Palin said. “When I hear a statement like that coming from a woman candidate with any kind of perceived whine about that excess criticism, or maybe a sharper microscope put on her, I think, ‘Man, that doesn’t do us any good, women in politics, or women in general, trying to progress this country,'” Palin said. “I don’t think it bodes well for her.”

She, or at least her advisers in McCain-land, seem to have discarded this principle today, along with years of Republican complaints about identity politics and political correctness.

Go read the rest, but I think the point is pretty clear.
