Below are a handful of the sexist remarks made by various media members and Joe Biden himself on Sarah Palin and her ability to work and raise children. Why is this even an issue and why would it be coming from people who say they are all for women working and that being an at home mother is embarrassing? Isn't this supposed to be what the Women's Rights movement was all about? Shouldn't a qualified, smart, and attractive woman be able to go out and work, be successful, and raise children all at the same time? The problem seems to be that Sarah Palin goes against everything the Democrat party tries to picture in the minds of everyday Americans, that conservative women all stay at home and are practically indentured servants to their husbands. This is obviously not the case and its not for many working women in the U.S. workforce. It seems comical that the Left is so peeved by the idea of a woman being on the Republican Presidential ticket, as if they were supposed to be the ones that would break through that barrier first! "There's also this issue that on April 18th, she gave birth to a baby with Down Syndrome. The baby is just slightly more than 4 months old now. Children with Down 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?” –CNN’s John Roberts, 8/29/08. "And I do think, too, that you have to weigh the situation. It's one thing to have one or two or three children, especially if they are healthy children. And everyone knows that women and men are different and that moms and dads are different and that women -- the burden of child care almost always falls on the woman. But I think, when you have five children, one a 4-month-old Down syndrome baby, and a daughter who is 17, who is also a child and who is going to need her mother very much in the next few months and years with her own baby coming, that I don't see how you cannot make your family your first priority. And I think if you are going to be president of the United States, which she may well be, I think that's going to be a real stretch for her."- The Washington Post’s Sally Quinn on CNN’s “Newsroom” 9/2/08. "SOME WORKING MOTHERS WORRY THAT PALIN IS TAKING ON TOO MUCH" And "SOME VOTERS CONCERNED IF PALIN, A MOTHER OF FIVE HAS TIME TO BE VP." –Tickers on MSNBC "Kristan, we've talked this morning about whether a mother of five can handle being the vice president. who looks after the kids when she's working? do you know?" - CBS' Maggie Rodriguez on the "Early Show.” “From our perspective the whole deal is how does the government help you get back up without getting in the way?' Biden asked. 'There's a gigantic -gigantic -- difference between John McCain and Barack Obama, and between me and I suspect my vice presidential opponent. And that is that - ' The crowd laughed. 'Well there's obvious differences,' Biden said, beginning to ham it up. 'She's good looking,' he said, laughing. 'You know there's obvious differences.” -ABC’s Jake Tapper writing about what Democratic vice presidential candidate Joe Biden told supporters at a recent campaign stop. MSNBC's Nora O'Donnell (mother of twin 1 1/2 year olds and 1 month old, husband owns 3 restaurants), on a MSNBC morning show questioned (in the 3rd person, "some people are saying") Sarah Palin on how she can take care of her children if she accepts the Republican VP nomination.
