(Newser) – Attention, lamestream media: Sarah Palin has had it with you, to the point where she's not even going to whine about you anymore. Seems Bill Maher called her a nasty name ever-so-subtly invoking female genitalia, NOW leaped to her defense, and Palin went on Fox yesterday to tell everyone to shove it, reports CNN. "I'm through whining about a liberal press that holds particularly conservative women to a different standard, because it doesn't do any good to whine about it," Palin told Greta Van Susteren.

"Nobody ever promised life was going to be fair," she continued. "And politics really isn't fair, the scrutiny, the double standards, and all that. I'm dealing with it I guess in a different way than others who want to bring more light to it and demand that Bill Maher apologize." As for NOW? "I need NOW's defense like a fish needs a bicycle."
