No Chef Here: It's the Palin Show!
Apparently, Sarah Palin made a big deal of getting rid of the chef at the Governor's Mansion in Alaska. Forget about going back to work three days after having a baby, this is why you should question Palin's domestic policies and how she applies them to her own home. Any reasonable person - man or woman -- with a full time job and a house full of kids knows that you take help wherever you can get it. If the chef is there, budgeted for, and earning a living for his or her own family, then why not have that chef help you out? Would your kids rather you spend your time making them caribou hot dogs or doing puzzles and helping with homework? As she learned by hiring a lobbyist for Wasilla, we all get by with a little help from our friends. Palin helps no one by playing super mom and super cook. When it comes to being a parent, cooking is the least of the work we have to do.
