Naturally, this is a tremendous threat to the left, and has ironically set them on a path of attack that borders on overt sexism.
The treatment by the Obama campaign of Hillary Clinton certainly was an opening salvo against women, and the continued drum beat from these leftwing fanatics has marched on toward Governor Palin. Doubt it?
Why then, are the attacks on Palin centering around why she isn't home with five children? They scoff at the notion that Palin can be a mother AND Vice President. I thought the left wanted to shatter the glass ceiling. Instead, they'd rather apparently see her in a glass kitchen. Add to that the distasteful rumor-mongering that Gov. Palin's youngest son with Down Syndrome was actually her daughter Bristol's child, and the glee with which the left has leapt on her seventeen-year-old daughter's actual pregnancy, and you get a very disgusting picture of an anti-woman left.
Somehow, the left is trying to sell Palin as a hypocrite... they sneer at her abstinence approach and chortle to their arrogant selves, amused that her daughter is now pregnant. The truth is in how such people handle these kids of challenges. This family has chosen to keep this child, in keeping with their conservative pro-life values. They don't just talk it, they live it.
In the meantime, while all these "journalists" play with themselves over a teen's pregnancy, and prattle about her "INEXPERIENCE" they ignore Barack Obama's obvious inability to become president, reflected in his three days of response over the Russian/Georgian incident last month. Fist Obama gave moral equivalence to the Russian and Georgian positions, and then recommended sending the matter to the United Nations, apparently forgetting that Russia has a veto on the Security Council. Duh!
The left are now trying to say that the experience issue is dead because of the selection of Palin. I'm sure they deeply wish that were so. Unfortunately for them , the McCain-Palin ticket has the experience and youth in the right order.
