I’m on vacation, but it doesn’t mean I’m out of the loop. That said, this is going to be quick. There’s a pool raft with my name on it waiting for me to emerge.
Alaska Governor Sarah Palin has been the favorite MSM topic since John McCain announced her as his VP choice last Friday. Once it was revealed her 17 year old daughter, Bristol Palin, is in the “family way” liberal pundits have been calling for Sarah to withdraw from the race. Questions regarding her “mothering” skills, how the VP job will take her away from her children and their special needs child, have been appearing in every news rag in the country.
Hearing all this has made me sick. This question was never asked of B. Hussein Obama concerning his small daughters. Michelle is a working mom and never once did it occur to anyone to ask if he could effectively parent the 7 and 10 year olds if he were elected to the highest office in the land.
Then there’s what I’ve dubbed the Teddy factor. Was Ted Kennedy ever asked to step down amidst all the skeletons in his family closest? From beating the murder rap, a nephew on trial for rape and another enters rehab before investigators can get to the bottom of his DC hit and run. Oh the Kennedy clan has many skeletons and it never entered or crossed his mind to step down and tend to family business.
Whether it’s a double standard, media bias or because she’s a woman; I have a feeling Sarah Palin is a lot stronger than Teddy and can weather this storm.
