Oooh, these poor conservative women. They are being so abused.
Of course back when Hillary Clinton was making the same complaint these same conservative women slapped Clinton down for whining....
Prospective first lady Cindy McCain tells ABC News' "Good Morning America" she "absolutely" believes sexism is behind critical coverage of her husband's vice presidential pick, Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin -- even though Palin months ago slammed Hillary Clinton's "perceived whine" in making similar complaints during the Democratic primary.
Speaking to Diane Sawyer, Cindy McCain blasted the overall coverage of Palin as sexist -- and specifically an Us Weekly cover headlined "Babies, Lies and Scandal."
"I think it's insulting," McCain told Sawyer. "I think it's outlandish. And for whatever reason, the media has decided to treat her differently, because, I believe, because she's a woman."
McCain added that she approved of the selection of Palin as her husband's running mate, saying, "It's wonderful" that Palin's 17-year-old daughter is pregnant, claiming the campaign "knew about it."
Palin would be wise to not play the victim, and slug it out toe-to-toe, but if "give her a pain pill and prop her up in front of the cameras" Cindy McCain (that's just my little nickname for Cindy the past drug addict) is out front and doing the whinning then this is likely a planned campaign strategy, and we'll be hearing more farumped up conservative women whining that Palin isn't being treated fairly because she's a woman.
Can't wait. Nothing like a hypocrite in full bloom to make you appreciate fall elections....
