I thought that it was worth posting two comments, the second of which sums up the frustration that many NOLA.com readers feel with the comments and NOLA.com's lack of moderation:
I love this,all anyone needs to do is mention Palin's name and the mentality weak and 'left' wackos get their panties in a knot.....but you can relax...your messiah will be on tv tonight....to pat your limp-wrist hand and tell you not to worry....he has everything under control......HA !
I wonder if NOLA.com has a formal policy about what slurs are permissible or impermissible?
She has made a career out of saying incredibly ignorant things, bold face lies and playing the victim. If you can't see that, then I don't think you can accuse anyone of being 'mentally weak.'
And your gay reference is truly disgusting, but I'm sure nola.com will allow your hate-filled rant to remain on it's site. So don't worry your pretty little bigoted mind about that.
