Lets face it. Our press is anything besides impartial. And they are again on a Sarah Palin frenzy.
I personally doubt that Palin has what is needed to be president, and to get my vote she would need to get more experience... which means NOT resigning middle-of-term. Also, a president has to be able to handle stress, including the press. In addition, I doubt she will ever get renominated. Political parties generally don't like losers.
Now with all that said and done, I think that the press is being horrid. Obama's children are off-limits (as they SHOULD be). Why are Sarah's not? And what is this drivel about Palin (who went out on a limb and actually said the people with retardation are valuable citizens)promoting lead in kindergarden lunches? Take a sentence that almost any mother of a special needs kid will make, and twist it, make fun of it. Try your best to bring up Trig's Down syndrome.
In my eyes, having a child with Down syndrome will not get you my vote, unearned. But it is enough to get her mocked at time and time again.There may be other reasons.. in fact, I am sure of it. But make no mistake, a lot of the hatred she is treated with is because she was willing to have, and be proud of, Trigg.
