The recent rumours circulating around Sarah Palin, and only now dispelled by her statement that her eldest daughter is pregnant and intending to marry, are disgusting beyond belief. How on earth do the rules go only one way?
If Michelle Obama was accused of having adopted her daughters in order to avoid natural birth and then pretending in her speech to do so, the world would be outraged and rightly so. But because we have a smart, conservative woman, she’s fair game? I would call that misogyny of the first order, as then she’s a saint if leftwing and a whore if rightwing.
The left and the Democrats have double standards. That much is now evident.
