#1 Compare wid CNN > SARAH's BASE MESSAGE [THREAT] TO AMER WOMEN = Its okay to CHOOSE TO STAY HOME, TO HAVE AND TAKE CARE OF KIDS, FAMILY, AND COMMUNITY [read, NOT HAVE AN ABORTION(S)], and NOT have a HIGH-POWERED WALL STREET = CORPORATE/PROFESSIONAL CAREER, THAT A WOMAN CAN STAY HOME AND STILL BECOME VPOTUS = POTUS???

#2 What elitist crock. The thesis is, we're so much better that we'd bury someone like Palin if we just tried a little harder.

Good. Get the whole Harvard class to head off to places like Wasilla for 10 years to make their bones. The vast majority would simply disappear for life, and we'd all be better off.

#3 well said, KBK. This woman is so full of herself that she probably makes herself gag.

#4 Actually, the message is the only way to become vice president, or president, or even just a governor, is to get up to your elbows in it... which is boring to these lovely, well-educated, charming, happy, lotus-eating women. So they won't, but they'll still hate Sarah Palin because she got through hard work that which would make them miserable and which they would do exceedingly poorly even if it were handed to them the way they think they deserve.

#5 I'd just love to see one of these upper crust ladies try to teach an autistic child with tactile defensiveness to wash his hair. Or make a decent dinner herself. Never mind making a serious effort in community service.

Volunteering in poor countries has some use; although Middle Daughter has observed some NGO volunteers, the "SUV People" in action in West Africa, and reports that the SUV people are often a stench in the local people's nostrils.

TW, the adjective "lotus eating" for these ladies is perfect.

#6 MIke - I agree with and share your highlighted comments - my dad was also a local and state-level politician, and it is a gift in many ways, particularly in ways that the "elite" schools struggle to inculcate, and largely fail in their efforts.

The biggest distinction he drew was on the corruption/integrity scale. He was, like most he served with, surprisingly non-partisan, which I think is an uncovered secret even in Washington today, but he had no truck with crooks, and they were on both sides of the aisle. There seem to be more of them in office these days.
