Good Kiran, Bad John

September 5, 2008

Today American Morning’s Kiran Chetry was good cop to John Roberts’ very bad one. Kiran defended Palin and other mothers’ rights to pursue higher office and a career in general vis-a-vis Roberts’ earlier incendiary and insidious indicting of Sarah Palin’s decision to accept the historic GOP nomination as vice presidential nominee. Roberts had questioned whether Palin could provide appropriate care to a Down’s Syndrome child and be Vice President of the United State of America at the same time: He failed to mention that Palin’s husband is a stay-at-home dad and did not wonder aloud whether the Dem male presidential nominee Barack Obama could provide adequate care for his two young daughters. Nursing mother and professional journalist Kiran Chetry took Sally Quinn to task for posing a similar query in her troglodyte column as to whether the Alaskan Athena could wage war and spin the distaff at the same time.

Laurels, Kiran! Brickbats, John!
