Hey Sarah, don't sweat the small stuff

First Sarah Palin called for the firing of Rahm Emmanuel for his “effing retards” remark.  Now she’s going after Family Guy.

First, it was David Letterman; now, Sarah Palin has a new adversary in “Family Guy” creator Seth MacFarlane. Why? The controversial cartoon decided to air a new episode on Sunday that made a jab at down syndrome. As many of us know, Palin’s son Trig was born with the genetic disorder.

I like you Sarah.  I don’t know if I want you to be President.  But I like you.

But c’mon, if you’re going to play in the big leagues, you’re going to have to toughen up.  You should know by now that they’re going to say nasty things. They’re going to make things up.

Don’t take the bait.  Going off on a tangent about their shameful and nasty jokes merely distracts from your message.

After all, Jesus said there’d be days like this.

Blessed are you when people insult you, persecute you and falsely say all kinds of evil against you because of me.
~ Matthew 5:11

They attack you, and your family, Sarah because they don’t like your message.  And they don’t like your popularity.  Responding to their nonsense attacks only gives them credibility.

Regardless of your political ambitions, you’ve got another good 20-30 years of getting your message out.  If you continue to react to their attacks, they’ll only get worse.

Don’t feed their egos.
