Is there a double standard?

Would Gov. Sarah Palin's family be an issue if she were a man? Nobody made an issue with Biden after his wife died that he stayed in office. What do you think? Would it be different if all of her kids were older?

This is definitely a double standard. If it were MR. Palin running for office, you would not be seeing all the hype. You would hear about it, of course, but it would be a small detail, not a big crisis the way everyone is making it out to be. It is none of our business. I heard from a customer of mine last night that Obama made the statement that if any of his staff tried to make this an issue in the campaign, he would fire them. I hope he holds true to his word if it happens and he did in fact say it.

Oh, the family life issue. With Republicans being how they are, I don't care about Palin's family life. Instead, I care about the Hypocrisy of the Republicans. If Palin's identical situation had applied to Hillary Clinton, the Republicans would have jumped all over it. Because it is a Republican candidate, however, they turn a blind eye. I don't trust hypocrites.

That is sad, but you are probably right! I just wish all the fighting would stop and we could peaceably elect a new president.. Like that is really going to happen! LOL
