Sarah Palin is so irresponsible.  She should know that her place is at home cooking and caring for her young kids.  Obama has two young girls, but Michelle will stay home and take care of them.  Joe Biden had two young boys, born in 71 and 72, when his wife and daughter died in December of 72, but he stayed a Senator because as a Man he can take care of his very young kids and work as a Senator.  Sarah Palin can’t be held to the same standard, because obviously she must fulfill the gender roles that normally I would rail against as a liberal.  Thus when Biden is a hero for being a working Dad, Sarah Palin is a jerk for not staying with her kids.  But this isn’t a double standard because Biden is a Democrat, and we Liberal Democrats know how to balance our lives wheras hunter-mother-republicans don’t.
