Keith Olbermann: “I’d love the governor or anybody else repeating those talking points to give us the names of those news organizations that have actually questioned whether or not mothers have a right to sit in office. But we haven’t heard that list yet.”
Chris Matthews: “I sit here waiting for that list of major news organizations who have questioned her motherhood or her right to become Vice President, given her motherhood. I don’t think it has ever happened.”
“There’s also this issue that on April 18th, she [Palin] gave birth to a baby with Down’s Syndrome….Children with Down’s syndrome require an awful lot of attention. The role of Vice President, it seems to me, would take up an awful lot of her time, and it raises the issue of how much time will she have to dedicate to her newborn child?” –CNN’s John Roberts on the August 29th, “Newsroom”
“Adding to the brutality of a national campaign, the Palin family also has an infant with special needs. What leads you, the Senator, and the Governor to believe that one won’t affect the other in the next couple of months?…She has an infant — she has an infant with special needs. Will that affect her campaigning?” -ABC’s Bill Weir on “Good Morning America,” August 30.
“Is she prepared for the all-consuming nature of the job?…Her first priority has to be her children. When the phone rings at three in the morning and one of her children is really sick what choice will she make?” -Washington Post’s Sally Quinn, in an August 29, online column.*
Now, these questions are coming from the “couple”, Olbermann and Matthews, who were in such a state of ecstasy that they were speaking in tongues after Barack Obama’s acceptance speech. If you don’t believe me, just click this youtube and see for yourself: (Sorry, video removed by You Tube)
The media in general, and MSNBC in particular, are so far into the tank for Barack Obama that even the far-left Bill Maher, on his HBO show Friday night, (the Friday night after the speech) recognized “there is a problem…with the media gushing over him too much.” Specifically, though he didn’t name co-anchors Chris Matthews and Keith Olbermann, Maher pointed to MSNBC’s coverage following Obama’s acceptance speech: “The coverage after, that I was watching, from MSNBC, I mean these guys were ready to have sex with him (Obama).”
But back to Sarah Palin, I believe there are many more instances of the type of references that are listed above, but they are good examples of the bs that was being put out by the press and the media immediately after McCain chose Sarah Palin as his running mate, and also doesn’t include the fact that the New York Times had three hatchet articles on their front page. *I saw Sally Quinn on yesterday detracting her statement. She said she had “re-thought” it.
