Mary Mitchell at the Chicago Sun-Times makes the by-now ever-more-obligatory nod to the power of Sarah Palin’s speech last night…
“I love those hockey moms. You know what they say the difference is between a hockey mom and a pit bull — lipstick,” Palin said.
And then she showed us what she means:
“In small towns, we don’t heap praise on working people when they are listening and talk about how bitter they are and they cling to their religions and guns when those people aren’t listening,” she said.
“We prefer candidates who don’t talk to us one way in Scranton and another way in San Francisco.”
Those are the kinds of jabs the Obama campaign will have a difficult time dealing with simply because Palin is a female, and the campaign will not want to appear to be sexist.
No, Mary Mitchell. The Obama campaign will have a difficult time dealing with those jabs because they use Barack Obama’s own words against him.
Which, I suspect, will soon be called “racist”.
