Sarah Palin has blasted remarks by MSNBC panelists who mocked a photo of Mitt Romney and his family, calling them "despicable."

"Leftist media hounds are not expressing an opinion with this attack; they are expressing a prejudice that would never be accepted if it came from anyone else but the lib media," Palin wrote.

The MSNBC panelists' comments were quickly condemned by fellow journalists.

"Nothing is lower than humiliating a child. So, uhm, well done, MSNBC," John Nolte of Breitbart.com wrote.

Perry later apologized on Twitter:
