Boo hoo or bad form?
Is the media treating Republican VP candidate Sarah Palin, governor of Alaska, badly or with too negative a scrutiny? The charge ‘sexist’ has been leveled at some of her detractors’s critiques.
Since her candidacy for VP was announced, she’s been called everything from ‘failed beauty queen’ to ‘Caribou Barbie’ and worse, and dissed by pundits and reporters alike, including amusing fake reporters.
So what do you think? Should she be skewered as (among other things) moronic or bimbo-esque – or taken more seriously as a possible VP or president of the United States of America?
Update 10.23.08: So far no one has voted for “Sarah who?” in this poll which is not surprising considering the press’ former ga-ga status over Palin and I suspect Tina Fey and SNL had something to do with Palin as a ‘household name’…brand, don’t you?
Update Oct 27: so far “Out her unreadiness” is winning, with absolutely no votes at all for ‘Leave Sarah alonnne!” which is my weak attempt at parodying the squalling Britney fellow in the video.
