Campbell Brown Calls Palin’s Treatment By McCain Sexist?

By  | 


This “sexist” term is being thrown around a lot these days, isn’t it? But is it accurate?

Well, I guess that depends on how Palin feels about it.

First, here’s Campbell Brown’s rant on Palin’s press shyness…

Hey, who knows…maybe Palin doesn’t want to talk to the press, right? Maybe she wants to be cloistered in her own special little political cocoon, only to emerge for the occasional one-on-one interview, some rallies, the Veep debate and the inauguration. Because if that’s the case, then McCain’s not being sexist, he’s just doing what she’s asking.

If, on the other hand, Palin is saying “Hey, I want to get out there and talk to the press,” and McCain’s handlers aren’t letting here…well, Brown may have a point. And if that’s not sexist, it’s at least extremely strange. After all Geraldine Ferraro gave a press conference less than 24 hours after she was announced as the Veep pick. So why not Palin?

Moving on…
