Laura Bush Worried About Media Sexism Towards Palin

Laura Bush appears to be concerned that Democrats and media members are going to make sexist attacks on presumptive Republican vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin.

Given what happened to Hillary Clinton during the primaries, this seems more than warranted.

As reported by Politico Monday (emphasis added):

First lady Laura Bush said today that sexism aimed at Sarah Palin was a very real prospect and suggested Democrats watch what they say about the Alaska governor and John McCain's ticketmate.

“The other side will have to be particularly careful," Bush said in an interview on Fox News from St. Paul, "because that’s something we all looked at."

Questioned about whether Palin may face sexism from the media in the way Hillary Rodham Clinton supporters claim she did, Bush said: "I think that's a possibility."

So do we.
