Lots of liberals dislike Ann Althouse for pointing out the hypocrisy of women going to a luncheon for groper-in-chief Bill Clinton. But Althouse is no lightweight and she is all over the Left's (and supposedly Right's) hypocrisy on Sarah Palin.
In this short post, she pulls out a quote from Andrew Sullivan (the Left's favorite supposed conservative), in which he says that John McCain nominated a former beauty queen for vice president.
So we get to pick whatever "former" activity of a candidate seems least presidential and call them that? Do you really want to go there?
I've said this myself. Democrats don't really want to make too much of Palin's lack of experience, given that she's not the presidential candidate. But they seem to think this is a big winner. But as Althouse points out, this leaves Obama wide open:
The Democratic Party gave us a former cocaine user/community activist to take over the White House without even a stint as Vice President.
Haven't we been told that Obama's past indiscretions are off-limits? But now, it's fair game to keep blasting Sarah Palin as a "former beauty queen"? Are women dumb enough not to be insulted by this?
