View Full Version : Mona Charen :: Townhall.com Columnist Is Trig the Heart of Media Reaction to Palin?

They say (and to her credit, Sally Quinn has apologized for her comments) that it was Palin's inexperience that prompted their contempt. But aren't these the same people who had just the week before been defending Barack Obama's thin resume?

Something about Sarah Palin set them off before their own politically correct impulses ("Must Avoid Sexism") could inhibit them. By the ferocity of the response, you might have thought Palin was a secret member of a polygamous cult or had forced her daughter to give birth after a rape. But no, she was just the mother of five, hunting, fishing, NRA member, and governor.

I wonder if it was that baby.

Sarah Palin is no ordinary pro-lifer. She is an attractive, intelligent, ambitious, successful woman who has actually lived her convictions. Told that the baby she was carrying would be handicapped with Down syndrome, she and her husband made the only decision their consciences would permit -- to welcome this child with the same love they would give to any other. That decision is comparatively rare in America. Fully 80 percent of parents who receive a diagnosis of Down syndrome in their unborn children elect to abort. But it's not unusual at all among committed pro-lifers.

They talk about conservatives being one issue voters . . . .

They talk about conservatives being one issue voters . . . .It sure could have been a guilt reaction over how many Down syndrom babys have been killed by the liberal abortion lobby !

OK PoliCon. I'll let you go on this particular thread, because it makes a great point.

Speaking of greasy .... did ya'll hear about what Lance Armstrong said?

He was asked what he was looking for in a woman.

His answer was - his only request is that she is 'hotter than donut grease'.

He really said that.

:rolleyes: The pig.
