May build on this post later. Was just at a brunch where a very intelligent man refused to accept that Sarah Palin had a record of accomplishment as Governor of Alaska. Why is it that some Democrats (and a few Republicans) refuse to acknowledge — or even familiarize themselves with this woman’s record?
Is it because she is a woman?
I mean, when John McCain tapped her as his running mate, she enjoyed a 75% approval rating . . . among Alaska Democrats. When Katie Couric interviewed the then-Republican Vice-Presidential nominee, the CBS News anchor didn’t once ask her interlocutor about her record. Or what she had done to win support among Democrats as well as Republicans.
Do these folks just assume that a woman can’t stand up to a corrupt political establishment and effect real reforms?
