The New MSM Meme on Palin

Sphere: Related Content

Allah points us to the fact that CNN has taken the first stab at this meme:

CNN’s John Roberts, after briefly alluding to the issue of Republican vice-presidential nominee Sarah Palin’s experience he called into question earlier on Friday’s "Newsroom" program, asked correspondent Dana Bash about how the Alaska governor’s newborn son with Down’s syndrome might be affected if she were elected: "There's also this issue that on April 18th, she gave birth to a baby with Down's Syndrome.... Children with Down's syndrome require an awful lot of attention. The role of Vice President, it seems to me, would take up an awful lot of her time, and it raises the issue of how much time will she have to dedicate to her newborn child?"

Bash deftly answered this question, which has the implication that Palin could neglect her infant son, and made a possible counter-argument the McCain camp would use, that a question like Roberts’ would be sexist: "That's a very good question, and I guess -- my guess is that, perhaps, the line inside the McCain campaign would be, if it were a man being picked who also had a baby, but -- you know, four months ago with Down's Syndrome, would you ask the same question?"


Nice question, scumbag. Stay classy, okay. Good point by Bash, though.

I would ask this question of Roberts: did you ask the same question when Elizabeth Edwards was diagnosed with incurable cancer and still took her kids on the road while her husband was banging the photographer? Thought not.

This is day one and Allah lays out the plan of attack here. In the comments here they are going after her as one who wears too much makeup and hairspray. Nice group those libs.

Update: Andrew Sullivan whines, makes no sense and goes back to chugging the Kool-aid for Obama. So tedious is he. Once a man of some esteem and respect, now a hack. Sad, really.

Update: I didn't catch this before but reading it again, I have to say that Roberts actually showed his ignorance without even naming Palin. It's not "Down's Syndrome", it's Down Syndrome. I guess that would make him doubly an idiot, wouldn't it?

I know the libs are not used to having both a mother and a father in a relationship.

What a sexist thing to say.
