Today I'm taking odd comfort in the fact that women are usually harder on other women than men are. Heretofore, that has not comforted me. What I was not expecting was the reversing of positions that has occurred in what is now being called "The Mommy Wars." Mothers on the left, progressive, pro-choice, career women are condemning Palin's decision to try to have it all, while mothers on the right, conservative, pro-life, stay-at-home moms are applauding Palin's decision to raise a family (that's 5 children which include one on his way to Iraq, one an unwed teen, and the Downs Syndrome baby), run the state of Alaska, defend herself in the "Troopergate" abuse-of-power investigation, explain the crazy rantings of her pastor, justify her support of (and from) indicted Senator Ted Stevens and the Bridge to Nowhere and her connection to Jack Abramoff's lobbyists, and campaign for the Republican ticket.

Kinda reminds me of that old commercial:

I can bring home the bacon, da, da, da, dum, fry it up in a pan, and never, never, never let you forget you're a man, 'cause I'm a woman. Enjolie.
Trying to keep up with all the "Breaking News" finally wore this grandmother out. I decided to just wait and watch the whole thing on Jerry Springer.
I was encouraged by the poll numbers that came out today. Obama leads in all of them. After Sarah Palin brings her star power to St. Paul, this will probably change some. Seems their charge of Obama being a celebrity reflected some jealousy, so they went out and found their own version of Britney Spears.
Gallup has Obama 50, McCain 42.
Rasmussen has Obama 51, McCain 45.
USAToday has Obama 50, McCain 43.
Hotline/FD has Obama 48, McCain 39.
CBS has Obama 48, McCain 40.
Fred Thompson actually just said in his speech that being a P.O.W. doesn't qualify anyone to be president. To prove that a McCain presidency would not be 4 more years of Bush's 8 year disaster, the Republicans made the president stay out of St. Paul and deliver his speech by video. The only word I can think to describe that is tacky.

I couldn't agree more. Tell your secret admirer to listen to something besides Faux News for a change.
