Media: Don't blame us, we tried. We really tried
Not sexism. Comes close to being the most blatant admission of ideological bias yet (hat tip Instapundit). The subtext seems to be: We really tried to elect Obama. Why isn't it working?
The sexism part is that Obama has been painted as a transcendent figure by the media - His Hopiness, according to Vanity Fair - whereas Palin, whose bid is equally historical, is just a target who never even got a media honeymoon.
By the way, can we abandon the media mythology that the Democrats refuse to hit back hard enough? They fight hard. Just look at some of the postings in this blog.
