Stop bashing Sarah Palin

The mainstream media's slant on Gov. Sarah Palin is worse than shameful. The lady showed up for a job and was immediately debased and vulgarized beyond belief.

In spite of the "empowering women" groups, the Equal Rights Amendment and The Womens Liberation Movement, Palin has somehow sinned.

She is bashed for: being a working mother; utilizing her freedom of choice and giving birth to a Down syndrome baby; for being an "unknown;" not being an Ivy League lawyer; for being physically attractive and for having glasses they don't like.

Her scandals are: having a husband who at the age of 22 (pre-marriage) was arrested on a DUI charge; having a pregnant 17-year-old daughter; and Troopergate.

Her commendable accomplishments are ignored or belittled. She identified Alaska's political ills, was proactive and wrested elected offices from the business-as-usual, recalcitrant, corrupt good-old-boys; taxed big oil and returned money to citizens. Reportedly her approval rating is 80 to 86 percent.

Where are the libbers, the celebrities who glorify illegitimate birthing with celebrating each other on talk-shows and magazines? Where are the women who hold political offices and have children? Even the honcho-ette of Working Mothers magazine snubbed Palin.

Comedian Bill Maher mocked the Palin's 4-month-old Down syndrome baby, saying the infant looks like John Edwards.
That is neither funny nor satirical but thoroughly disgusting. Maher sought to get a laugh from "joking" about the looks of an innocent, handicapped baby. I do not have to wonder how the families and employees involved with LARC Ranch and Carousel Ranch feel about such "comedy." If Bill Maher improved by 1,000 percent, he still could not reach the level of despicable.

David Letterman mocked Palin's parenting of her pregnant daughter while 61-year-old Letterman has an "oops" toddler with his live-in girlfriend of decades.

Rosemary Kennedy was profoundly retarded after a lobotomy and Eunice Kennedy Shriver started the Special Olympics. Not one person in that vast family has come out in support of the Palin family with regard to this subject.
Sarah Palin's sin is that of being a Republican, a conservative, a proven reformer and apparently one big threat to the detractors.

Women's Lib? Sure - for liberals only. Freedom of choice? Only if the choice is theirs.
