Todd Palin, the great vanishing father
Anyone else notice how Todd Palin's contributions to his own family have been almost completely ignored by the news media, as they breathlessly question whether Sarah Palin should run for vice president because she has kids?
What about the First Dude? Isn't he helping raise the kids?
Why the complete devaluing of the father's role, as if he doesn't even exist in the family equation, as if his wife should, or does, do everything? It shows a pretty strong disrespect for fathers.
