Not How It Works: Calling Out Sarah Palin Doesn't Make You Sexist

Remember that old Twighlight Zone episode when there are a group of newspaper reporters looking at an airplane but each one sees a different tail number? Yeah, it's kind of like that.

Apparently, the message the GOP needs you to understand is that highlighting a person's shortcomins is inherently sexist. Sarah Palin deserves as much leadership credit - and credit generally - because both are capable of giving live-birth and producing milk for off-spring. Praise isn't an entitlement, it is earned. As is scorn. Of which McCain and the GOP deserve much.
