The Democrats chose to outsource their airtime to a Seventh Grader. If a political party is desperate enough to send a boy to do a man’s job, then the boy is fair game. As it is, the Dems do enough cynical and opportunist hiding behind biography and identity, and it’s incredibly tedious.I'm not sure I even need to comment. What are McCain and Palin running on, other than "biography and identity"? And funny how, all of a sudden, any close investigation or questioning of their Vice Presidential candidate is sexist or something.
An eleven year old kid is expected to take whatever's thrown at him if he dares to speak out in public, but according to Malkin, a 44 year old woman who's running for the nation's second-highest office...should be exempt from the usual oppo research , and MTV and US Magazine shouldn't dare say bad things about Alaska's Hothouse Flower. Lord help her if a lefty version of Karl Rove, Steve Schmidt, or Tucker Eskew were ever sicced on her.
I guess all of a sudden, politics is supposed to be beanbag after all!
Ms. Malkin, will you be my situational ethics tutor? I want to learn this art from a master!
*Words in italics added after the fact. Don't ask me how I didn't notice that she was quoting someone else. It doesn't affect the point, fortunately, but facts are still important to get right. It makes me wonder what Steyn has been saying about Palin Protection lately, though.
