Whining won't be an option
Sarah Palin’s handlers are crying sexism any time Barack Obama or the media say anything disparaging about her. That makes for good theater but is completely irrelevant. Palin herself chided Hillary Clinton, complaining that Clinton whined when things got tough. Palin said that whenever that happens, women need to be even tougher, to prove the detractors wrong. Gender is a hot campaign topic but once the election is over it is completely irrelevant. Sarah Palin’s team says she is qualified on day one to be Commander in Chief. At that point, or when she is meeting with leaders of foreign countries, or solving some national crisis, whining about sexism is not an option.
