Washington Times has an interesting double standard

In their latest attempt to justify the attacks on Sarah Palin, the Washington Times has an interesting take:

Huh? The Republican message about the Palin offspring comes across as contradictory: Hey, media, leave those kids alone _ so we can use them as we see fit.


and...

Either the children are out of bounds, and you don't put them in the photo ops, or you don't complain when somebody wants to talk about them. You can't have it both ways," said John Matviko

Wow... Did the Clinton's have a child? I'm not sure... I never saw her. Oh, wait... We did see Chelsea all the frickin' time! And she was certainly off-limits. Amy Carter? Ditto. How about the Obama kids? We see them in celebrity magazines, on stage at the convention, on Access Hollywood and other celebrity television shows, etc. Or have I just imagined that?!?

So, WTF? Why are the Palin children fair game, but these other children have historically not been? And why the blatant double-standard masquerading as a justification?

Oh, right... Republican... Got it...
