Gwen Ifill Gets Schooled

…in the gold double-standard.

…GWEN IFILL: And there’s also a big difference between running a state or running as long as she has run a state and running for one of the biggest jobs in the country. What advice do you give her on how to balance this? She’s got five kids. She’s got one…
REP. HEATHER WILSON: You know something? Let me say something about that. That bothers me. No one ever asked John Kennedy whether he could be president and be a dad. Nobody asks Senator Obama whether he could be president and be a dad.
But because Governor Palin is a woman, they’re asking whether she can be vice president and a mom.
GWEN IFILL: But she describes herself…
REP. HEATHER WILSON: It’s time to end the double standard.
GWEN IFILL: I understand what you’re saying. She described herself as a hockey mom. That was her self-description.
REP. HEATHER WILSON: And one of the greatest things about Senator Obama is that he talks about the importance of being a father and a parent, but nobody asks whether he can do both at the same time. We need to end the double standard.

Rep.’s Wilson and Fallin did our sisterhood proud.

    But I don’t think you understand, THS. The sisterhood exists only to protect aborting babies. All this other stuff about being treated as adults is beside the point. Come on, catch up with the times.

    Sometimes, the mask slips off the MSM. These days, more often.

    Too right. I know men who couldn’t handle both the job and being a dad.
