Game On: Palin renews the battle of the sexes

Three Four video clips to peruse for you this morning. The Sunday talk shows were abuzz with Palin talk on the eve (no pun intended) of the release of the former Alaskan Governor’s new book, “Going Rogue”. Normally I would not post on this. BUT, what I found interesting is how the battle lines were drawn. The men, even the sol called conservatives dismissed Palin as a non factor in 2012 … and that my friends kinda ticked off the women … even the liberal women.

First the sound bite heard round the world, from David Brooks.


Now watch the women of CNN and ABC jump to her defense. Jessica Yellin first … she’s a sexpot!


Next up, Gwen Ifle: Palin stirs the hearts of the people who are not heard. David Corn’s response: She’s a threat to Republicans, then listen for Ifle’s response to that.


Finally, there’s Donna Brazile on CNN: I will buy her book, and if she is encouraging women to get into politics, I will support that.


Interestingly, the more the men scoffed, the more the women defended. Game on!

Peeling Away

Support for the young President among his media friends is beginning to peel away as Powerline points out in these two posts. Here … and here. Then there’s this link from Instapundit that details the growing disenchantment among the media elite. Jennifer Rubin gives the rundown.

They may need a support group before the month is out. They could gather in New York or Washington where many victims reside. The meetings would start: “I’m Maureen [or David]. I’m a duped Barack voter. And I’m mad.”

The ranks indeed are filling with the disaffected and the disappointed — Chris Buckley, Maureen Dowd, David Brooks, David Gergen, and even that gynecological sleuth and blogger Andrew Sullivan. And then there is the very angry Marty Peretz. Their complaints are varied but expressed with equal amounts of remorse and bitterness. They all have been done wrong by Barack.

And as if that’s not bad enough … Chris Matthews sounds like he’s had enough too … at least with the pork laden Omnibus Bill. A promise is a promise, Mr President.


Perhaps Chris should read Jim Geraghty over at National Review, and then he would understand everything Obama comes with an expiration date.
