As my blog entry from a few days ago shows, I'm not exactly enthused by the selection of Sarah Palin as John McCain's Vice-Presidential nominee. That said, she IS the Republican nominee. Ever since she was nominated late last week, I have watched as she has been absolutely savaged by the MSM to a degree never before seen. Yes, I mean that. She hasn't even given ONE single speech to a national audience and yet she has been trashed incessantly by virtually every MSM outlet, with claims ranging from "She's not qualified to be the President" (Oh, and Barack Obama, with his grand total of four years in the Senate--most of which he has spent running for President--is?), to "She should concentrate on her family" (Maybe John Edwards should have followed that advice. Ditto Bill Clinton.). For more on this--if you can stomach it--go here: http://online.wsj.com/article/SB122039719000892745.html?mod=djemEditorialPage.
The whole situation is an absolute travesty. What is getting the MSM so angry is that Palin does not fit into their model. She's not pro-choice, and she's not a Democrat. A pro-life, Republican woman? This is infuriating to MSM representatives, so they feel that they must take her down. Go back to what I wrote last Friday; The MSM would throw absolutely everything it could at her. We are now seeing the beginning of that onslaught, and it's only going to get worse. We'll find out a lot about Ms. Palin in the days and weeks to come. She's going to have to be every bit as tough (and then some) as reports say she is or John McCain's Presidential hopes are toast.
