Now This Is Getting Interesting...

Mike Huckabee, speaking at the RNC, commented that the elitist media is succeeding in unifying the Republican party and rallying women around Sarah Palin just by the nature of their nasty, unacceptable coverage of Palin and her family. Whether that's true or not, her emergence in this political season is definitely shaking things up.

What I don't understand is why the far left hates her so much. Isn't this what the feminists wanted when they promised we could "have it all?"

Sadly, it seems to have more to do with who's included in that "all." Maybe her Down Syndrome baby shouldn't be? Or would they rather have her daughter "do away" with this pregnancy once and for all. If these two "issues" were out of the equation, would the far left like her?

Whether you're for her or not, one thing's clear: life is not an "issue." It's a gift; a sacred trust.

"Any country that accepts abortion is not teaching the people to love, but to use any violence to get what they want. That is why the greatest destroyer of love and peace is abortion." Mother Teresa

I love that quote from Mother Teresa. It is strange how the attacks are so vicious and have nothing to do with her resume, leadership capabilities etc.

actually it seems like the far left and the far right dislike her. I have been amazed at the attacks coming from Christians. It is a little sad in my opinion, but I am trying to stay out of it :).

Okay I have to chime in…
I think the reason the “far left” do not like Sarah Palin has more to do with her policies and her experience than her (or her family’s) personal choices. She is lucky to live in this country where she can still make these personal choices. Palin’s family is a reflection of the many families in this country that face the stresses and strains, moral dilemmas, and difficult choices of modern life. Her life-work balance may be questioned by the public but, in my opinion, this is fair considering that her family is very much part of the biography she is presenting to voters.
