Palin in comparison

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:

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.

I am really looking forward to her speech tonight. I wasn't interested in voting for McCain until he nominated her. I think she brings a fresh and unique presence to the election, and you are right...the MSM is attacking her without even hearing from her. That makes me want to hear what she has to say all the more. So perhaps the media is doing her a big favor.

I'm tired of Liberal bullies in this country and the MSM fits right into that package for the most part. At least Obama showed some class by saying off limits on the daughter discussion.

What ever happened to debate on issues? "Jerry! Jerry! Jerry!"
