Representatives like Sarah Palin. She was done dirty by the press, I'll admit. But since then she's done nothing but confirm the insults and mockery aimed at her. Her instance on answering any question with ''I'm just a mamma grizzly' was one in a long line of actions that solidified the Left's contempt for her, and made defending her all the more difficult.
Here, she's reported to openly flaunt Covid restrictions by eating out a mere two days after testing positive. Even with Omicron, the standard is five days if symptom free. Now, I'm the last one to say I agree with the way Covid has been handled. And it isn't hard to see that much of what is happening has more to do with control and money, and far less to do with our well being.
Nonetheless, that doesn't give me or anyone a blank check to do anything we feel like doing. As I have said, Covid is unlike anything I ever had. It's a bugger to get, and we count ourselves blessed by having been infected by a lesser strain of the virus, if this is what the lesser strain is like. Hopefully the resistance from this infection will match others, and will go toward that immunity down the road.
I wouldn't wish it on anyone, however. A month later and we still have slight traces of the thing. If she has tested positive, then the basic, decent, common sense, humane response is to avoid others. If I get the flu, I don't run to the theater or the health club. I stay home and avoid my family and friends. That's because I don't want to infect anyone. Ancient wisdom and common good thinking that still works.
This is clearly 'flaunt the rules' thinking, hoping conservatives will cheer her on. Oh, she may infect others, but what of it? She's sticking it to the Left! No. She's being, for want of a better word, a jerk. Some day conservatives will figure out how to fight to win, not fight to live up to the negative stereotypes.
