You would have to be blind and deaf to not know who Sarah Palin is and what is going on with her and the left leaning, liberal media. Since John McCain announced August 29th that she would be his running mate, the conservatives have been estatic and the liberals have jumped on her with both feet. Although the response of the conservatives may have been unexpected, we shouldn’t be surprised that the liberals are so much up in arms against Governor Palin. I am not going to go into Sarah Palin’s qualificatins here, simply because I have already went over them in a previous post. What I will deal with is the way the liberals are trashing her and her family.
All things aside, I don’t have a problem with the liberals questioning her record, that is to be expected. Have we not questioned the records of Barack Obama and Joe Biden? What I really have a problem with is the way they have attacked Palin’s family and her motherhood. It didn’t take long for some idiot to come up with some supposed “truth” about her “faked” pregnancy and who Trig’s mother really was. It didn’t take long for that rumor to be proven false, but now the liberals are daring to say she shouldn’t be running for Vice President, but should instead be home with her children. The truth be known, they probably think she shouldn’t have even ran for Governor of Alaska. The irony of it all is just too great.
Can you imagine the uproar if anyone dared suggest Hillary Clinton needed to stay out of the public life because she had Chelsea to take care of? I realize she wasn’t actually President when Chelsea was growing up, but she certainly had a lot on her plate and she certainly had her hands in a lot of the decisions that were made while her family was in the White House. I am not against that, but I just want you to stop and think about it. Anyone who tried that tactic against the Clintons would have been ran out of town on a rail. Why is Sarah Palin any different?
I am not so naive that I can’t understand how difficult raising Trig is going to be, but she doesn’t have to do it alone. If she and John McCain win this election, I am sure she will have plenty of help. The kind of trash I have been seeing, calling her a terrible mother because Bristol is pregnant, accusing her of neglecting her children is simply uncalled for. No matter if you going to vote for McCain/Palin or not, you should not be attacking her family and questioning if she is a good mother or not. As I have said before, that is none of anyone’s business.
Just to be clear, I would be writing this even if it were a liberal woman running for Vice President. The kind of personal attacks we have seen in the last week disgust me to no end. It doesn’t matter if it is The DailyKos and Alan Colmes talking about Sarah Palin and her family or Rush Limbaugh talking about Chelsea Clinton. It’s uncalled for and we need to be sticking to agreeing or disagreeing with the person’s policies, not trying to grind them and their families into dust.
That’s my take!
