Steve M. says just about all that needs to be said about this piece in the Times, wherein we learn that throughout her adult life, Sarah Palin has been distinguished among other things — wait for it — by fearlessly venturing out into public with her children. Because secular, coastal progressives hide their kids in the car trunk or lock them kids in the basement and force them to assemble small electronic devices with their tiny fingers.
I’ll note as well that Kim Severson brings up the use of the term “Palinbots,” claiming that “some liberal Democrats” have used the nickname to dismiss Palin’s supporters. Aside from the fact that the term has not exactly gone viral (see, for example, this for comparison), the more important point is that the nickname was actually popularized by Dan Fagan, a wingnut talk show host and columnist from Anchorage who loathes Palin but loves him some Ted Stevens.
But since every criticism of Sarah Palin is by definition a Left Wing Smear, the details shouldn’t bother us.
