I'm not sure the role the Dish may have played in this, but Palin has now taken on Rush Limbaugh:

Palin believes Limbaugh’s repeated use of the word “retard” yesterday was “crude and demeaning,” her spokesperson emails...

It hardly has the passion of her response to Rahm, and there’s no call for him to step down. But given Rush’s stature among conservatives, it’s pretty interesting that she went this far, denouncing his on-air rant as “crude and demeaning name-calling.”

Why doesn't she call for Limbaugh to resign? And how about his sexism?
