It’s the Palin Stay at Home Sexist Double Standard

Posted by iusbvision on April 17, 2009

Look, here is the latest “SHUT-UP” argument against Sarah Palin. (Via News Busters):

New twist on the old media double standard: Strong pro-life women shouldn’t accept far-flung speaking engagements. They should stay home (presumably barefoot and pregnant, too.) Strong pro-choice women, however, are welcome to “champion women’s rights,” wherever and whenever they please.

Alaska Governor Sarah Palin recently gave a speech at a pro-life dinner in Indiana on April 16 and the media condemned her for not staying home and governing her state. But when U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton recently spoke to a Planned Parenthood group she was lauded as “championing women’s rights.”

ABC’s “Good Morning America” covered Palin’s speech and the “controversy” that ensued, stating that Alaska lawmakers, failing to mention they were mostly Democrats, are “criticizing Palin for her out of state travel.”  Instead of focusing on Palin’s main pro-life points, GMA spent 50 seconds of the 64 second segment keyed in on her admission that she understands women who entertain the thought of abortion.

The mistreatment of Sarah Palin by the mainstream media is nothing new as CMI has noted the character assassination she suffered at the hands of the networks during her run for Vice President.

By the way, at the time of this posting Palin has attended all of TWO out of state political events since the election. She has turned down thousands of invitations. Where was the outcry at Obama for such low attendance in the Senate when he ran for office? Where was the critique of Bill Clinton or Michael Dukakis when they were governors who ran for office? Its the old stay barefoot and pregnant in the home argument again and it is so well entrenched that leftist women are carrying water for it.

    PALIN: “So I have new questions for the president: Why no legal reform? Why continue to encourage defensive medicine that wastes billions of dollars and does nothing for the patients? Do you want health care reform to benefit trial attorneys or patients?”

    She hit the nail on the head. The second thing is lifting the ban on buying insurance across state lines. With 1300 insurance companies, allowing one company to control 80% of a states insurance, is ridiculous.

    As for the 2% of the population that is honest to God without insurance, give them a voucher or tax credits. (But NOT the illegal aliens, or those making over $50,000/yr!!!!)

    These three items should be acted upon and then wait a few years to see the results before doing anything else.

    Palin is one smart LADY.
