If she can manage five kids, she can manage the vice-presidency

Bloggers are talking both pro and con about the choice of Sarah Palin as McCain’s running mate.  One of the stupidest criticisms is that she has five kids! One with Down’s syndrome!  A pregnant teenager!  How can she manage?

People, please.  I’m sure if Palin felt she couldn’t handle it, she would have politely declined the offer.  She’s married, so I assume her husband helps out.  If she needs help, she can pay for it.  My brother-in-law serves in his state’s assembly and he has six kids.  No one asks how he can manage his family and his job.  They all assume his wife, my sister, does that.  Sexism, pure and simple.
