A double-standard for Sarah Palin? You don’t say?!

 

UPDATE:  AllahPundit has an Interesting video exchange from the FNC with Megan Kelly taking the nutroots to task for sexism, while her guest, Liz Trotta, known for previously joking about Barack Obama being assassinated, insists that people will be swayed by the argument about whether a woman can raise five children and hold a political office.  Is this part of the “new feminism?”

Michelle Malkin reminds us today of the “selective sympathy for moms in public office” by the left and MSM, citing a WaPo article raving about the sacrafices of women in Congress with children under age 13.  The article, written in mid-July of this year is titled ““Mom’s in the House, With Kids at Home For Congresswomen With Young Children, a Tough Balance.” 

So, if it is such a noble sacrifice for these women in Congress, why is it bad for Gov. Sarah Palin to have children and hold elective office?  Double-standard?  How else can you define it?

AllahPundit gives us an example of how “rabid” the MSM is in their P.D.S.  Speaking of media and rabid derangement, I noted something on Alan Colmes attack on Gov. Palin here the other day and Capt. Ed discusses it on HotAir.

When you get a second, check out the Sarah Palin Sexism Watch.  I noted a similar site at Shakesville the other day.

Will the left’s attacks help or hurt the McCain/Palin ticket?  I don’t really think it is going to hurt them.  And, as the adage goes, if I remember correctly, “people in glass houses should not cast stones.”  And, as Capt. Ed reminds us, until “we have walked in the Palins’ shoes”, we probably shouldn’t have too hasty a rush to judgemenet.  I think Charles at Politico.com is right…

So far — and it is hard to tell what the future may hold for Palin’s unexpected national candidacy — the travails of the Palin family probably seem awfully familiar to many average Americans. It is this averageness that makes her such a politically promising running mate for John McCain — and such a dangerous opponent for Democrats. Many voters will find it easy to identify with her family’s struggles — a significant advantage in an election where the voting calculus is so unusually and intensely personal.

Glenn Reynolds isn’t losing any sleep over the left’s Sarah Palin fascination.

My reaction to the Bristol Palin “controversy”

Yawn.

The more liberals pound this drum, the more votes they garner for McCain/Palin. It’s a non-issue. From a political standpoint the Dems would do well to drop it and move on. I mean, really, how long can one harp on the fact there’s not a perfect family in the world?
