I watched a few minutes of the New Hours with Jim Lehrer tonite. When I turned the show on, Jim Lehrer was interviewing Mark Shields and David Brooks about Sarah Palin. The conversation quickly turned to Sarah Palin's pregnant daughter.
Mark Shields bashed Sarah Palin for accepting the VP nomination, knowing her pregnant daughter would get undue attention for being pregnant.
David Brooks tried to keep the conversation above board but Shields kept returning to his theme that Palin was abusing her daughter. I thought Shields was sickening.

Do I need to point out nobody expects male politicians to drop out of sight when their kids get in trouble?
Sarah Palin is a loving, caring mother; the callous people during the 2008 election were bottom feeders like Mark Shields and most of his colleagues in the media, including McClatchy. I have more posts planned on how the media treated Sarah Palin during the election and after.
