One person taking Sarah Palin seriously? Barack Obama.
Calling Palin “a skillful politician,” Obama charged the Alaska governor with taking earmarks “when it is convenient” but decrying them now that she is headlining McCain’s agenda.Obama, to his credit, has not engaged in the sexism game. One reader challenged me to point out criticism of Palin that is not sexism. I think this article counts. That doesn't mean that I agree with what Obama is saying. It means that all criticism of Palin is not sexist. She can obviously take it. I sense the debate is moving back onto the "issues" plane now that Palin made it through the media hazing. I hope anyway.
