Sexism at CNN

Filed under: — Different River @ 12:56 am

CNN’s John Roberts asked if Gov. Palin would have enough time to take care of her baby if she were elected VP.

Would have have asked that question of a man with a young child?

Of course not.

But if he is asking because he really wants to know, rather than just to smear a Republican woman, here’s the answer: She’ll have more time then if she stays Governor, since as Governor she actually has constitutional duties. All the VP has to do is show up in to open the Senate once a year, and to break a tie vote if there ever is one.

Nice try, CNN.

    Can Governor Palin be any more hypocritical – preaching about abstinence, yet her unmarried 17-year old daughter is pregnant. Unreal.

    What a joke. Honestly.

  2. Different River Says:

    Have YOU ever done anything your parents disagreed with? Does that make your parents hypocrites? Or does that just mean you didn’t do what they wanted you to do?


    Preaching about abstinence when someone else is not abstinent is not hypocrisy. If the daughter were preaching abstinence for others while simultaneous doing otherwise herself, that would be hypocrisy.

    But the real hypocrisy is claiming that Bill Clinton’s sexual misdeeds were irrelevant to his qualifications, but Sarah Palin’s daughter’s sexual misdeeds — not hers, but her daughter’s! — are relevant to her qualifications.

    Move on, people.
