Sarah Palin: A dangerous and intelligent choice? Hm. Well. I’ve seen enough already to know that lots of supposedly-progressive people are going to attack her on sexist grounds – as one of Avedon Carol’s commenters notes:
A brilliant pick not because she’s going to win over all those Hillary voters but because she gives the Dems an opportunity to remind women that not everyone who hates us has a (R) after their name.
This is going to be so much fun – racism from the right, sexism from the left. America rocks!
Given there is enough to attack Palin on about issues that matter, it is – well, completely unsurprising after months of idiot sexist attacks on Hillary Clinton, that some are already choosing to attack her on issues such as “omg, mother of five! who’s going to stay home and look after her babies? what if she’s breastfeeding when America has a security issue?”
But there is a legitimate question to be raised about Palin and her fifth child Trig.
