Obama and Biden were not entirely on the same page on Palin on Thursday. Speaking to reporters in York, Obama waved off a question about whether media coverage of her has been sexist. "If they want to work the refs, they are free to do so," he said of GOP supporters who have made the allegation....
But he (Biden) said some coverage of Palin has been out of bounds, particularly questions about her ability to raise five children, including an infant with Down syndrome, while barnstorming the country as a vice presidential candidate. "Whoever these folks are don't know any strong women," said Biden, who will debate Palin on Oct. 2 in St. Louis. "Some of the stuff said has been over the top, totally unfair, and I think it has been sexist."

Biden: Thinks some coverage of Palin has been sexist
Obama? Not so much. A reporter might ask Sen. Obama why he doesn't think the examples that Sen. Biden cited are clearly out of bounds.
