Sexism Against Sarah Palin

From Mitchell Blatt:
"CNN’s John Roberts said, “Children with Down’s syndrome require an awful lot of attention. The role of Vice President, it seems to me, would take up an awful lot of her time, and it raises the issue of how much time will she have to dedicate to her newborn child?”

Um, how about using good time management skills and receiving help from her husband?
46% of the workforce is made up of women, according to 2006 US Census info, and many of those women have children. Women can and should be able to pursue careers.

Dana Bash responded to Roberts’ suggestion by saying, “If it were a man being picked who also had a baby, but — you know, four months ago with Down’s Syndrome, would you ask the same question?”"
The answer to that question is without a doubt no.

No one questioned John Kennedy. No one questioned Jimmy Carter. No one questioned Bill Clinton when all three had school age (or in Kennedy's case younger) children in the White House.

For decades feminists campaigned for women to be able to work and raise a family. So the feminist argument against Palin is ......

She's conservative. Odd definition don't you think.

The Democrats are really tolerant to anyone within their own party.
