At the risk of coming off like a broken record, I have to share some pablum about Palin coming from North of the Border. And by north, I don't mean Alaska.
Heather Mallick, a commentator for the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation and columnist for the Globe & Mail, wrote a vicious article about Sarah Palin on September 5th. Here's a sample:
Palin has a toned-down version of the porn actress look favored by this decade's woman, the overtreated hair, puffy lips and permanently alarmed expression....Husband Todd looks like a roughneck....They claim to be family obsessed while being studious terrible at parenting. What normal father would want Levi "I'm a f@#k*%g redneck" Johnson prodding his daughter?"
The rest of this garbage masquerading as an article can be found at http://www.cbc.ca/canada/story/09/05/f-vp-mallick.html
If Heather Mallick had said Michelle Obama resembled a porn actress would she still be working for the CBC? If Mallick had called the Obamas terrible parents the Globe & Mail would have given Mallick her walking papers. If Mallick had commented on Barack Obama's physical appearance she would have been called a racist faster than Ussain Bolt running the 100 meter dash. If Mallick had talked about Chelsea Clinton in a compromising position Mallick she would never have another article published.
Frankly, I am not interested in talking about Barack or Michelle Obama's physical appearance. I'm not interested in their parenting skills. I'm interested in Barack Obama's political positions and why I believe they are not in this country's best interests. If Mallick wants to criticize Palin's politics then by all means. But she's only interested in disseminating her hatred and contempt for Palin.
While Mallick is not an American writer, this has been the tone with the American MSM vis a vis Palin from the word go. If they want to keep that up all they do is make Palin a sympathetic figure. It is a wave of sympathy that might take her and McCain all the way to 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.
