Female Republicans: Shame on Media for Sexist Palin Attacks
Despite the silence from left-leaning feminists concerning the disgraceful treatment Sarah Palin is getting from the media, some female Republicans are speaking out against what they believe are "sexist attacks" from America's press.
Makes one wonder when leading female Democrats like Hillary Clinton and Nancy Pelosi will step up to the plate and defend a hard-working, successful woman despite her political leanings.
As reported by The Hill moments ago (photo courtesy BBC):
Female Republican officials and representatives of Sen. John McCain's (R-Ariz.) presidential campaign accused the media of taking a sexist slant in covering Sarah Palin.
"Shame on them," former U.S. Treasurer Rosario Marin said. "Shame on all of them."
"The Republican Party will not stand by while Sarah Palin is subjected to sexist attacks," said Carly Fiorina, the chairwoman of McCain Victory ’08. [...]Hear, hear!
Marin and Fiorina were joined by Rep. Marsha Blackburn (R-Tenn.), former Massachusetts Gov. Jane Swift and others in condemning what they see as the media's decision to focus on Palin's gender instead of her qualifications.
