Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin wasn’t laughing during her appearance with Fox’s Sean Hannity Thursday night, as she dug into President Obama and the lack of media scrutiny he went through during the last election cycle. “Our sitting president was not vetted,” during the 2008 election, Palin said. Palin was speaking of videos aired on Hannity’s show Wednesday released by that show Obama speaking in support of Professor Derrick Bell during Obama’s Harvard days. Palin also fumed over the denouncing of Rush Limbaugh, saying there was a double standard in Obama accepting money from Bill Maher, who Palin said has made misogynistic remarks about her. “Our president is one who is trying to divide our country,” Palin said. “He is not in this to unify America and to solidify our place as the exceptional nation in the world. He is trying to divide us based along lines of gender, of religion, of income, even of race.” Maher wrote a $1 million check to Priorities USA Action, a pro-Obama PAC, money Palin said Obama should ask the PAC to return.
