Free Sarah Palin

CNN's Campbell Brown:

Tonight I call on the McCain campaign to stop treating Sarah Palin like she is a delicate flower that will wilt at any moment...This woman is from Alaska for crying out loud. She is strong. She is tough. She is confident. And you claim she is ready to be one heart beat away form the presidency. If that is the case, then end this chauvinistic treatment of her now. Allow her to show her stuff. Allow her to face down those pesky reporters... Let her have a real news conference with real questions. By treating Sarah Palin different from the other candidates in this race, you are not showing her the respect she deserves. Free Sarah Palin. Free her from the chauvinistic chain you are binding her with. Sexism in this campaign must come to an end. Sarah Palin has just as much a right to be a real candidate in this race as the men do. So let her act like one.


  1. "So let her act like one?"

    Pretty poor choice of words from a guy whose ticket is comprised of two sissies.

  2. I think she was implying, let her act like a real candidate, not let her act like a man. If she meant the latter, those words were definitely poorly conceived.

  3. Obama and Biden are sissies? Come on “Cato” are we in Germania, are we Scythians? FDR was in a wheelchair by the end. Being a tough Illinois frontiersman did not help Lincoln when faced with an assassin (although when Jackson’s would be murderer’s gun failed to fire, an elderly Jackson attacked the man with a walking stick.) Does anyone want to choose a president using the same yard stick as choosing a middle-school football team?
