Over on Politico there's a story about Hillary supporters coming to the defense of Palin and urging the media to back off. Back Off? They're ASKING QUESTIONS! That's what the media is supposed to do! And you know what a candidate for Vice President is supposed to do? ANSWER THEM!
Don't even get me started on the pull quote saying that "we" have far to go because some people have pointed out that being a mother of five and having a job that takes up 7,000 hrs a week (and I'm talking about campaigning for VP) might create some conflicts. If this election is now about character and family values and the mommy version of the culture wars, I don't want to hear a supposed democrat defending a candidate who would not even be allowed onto a Democratic ticket for what the Rush Limbaughs of the world would say about her family life. Don't even get me started on the anti-choice business.
Who ARE these people and where do they get off?
