The Boston Herald's Margery Eagan takes a look at Sarah Palin and sees a lot of progress for working moms...
Suddenly those very same conservatives and evangelicals have done a 180. Suddenly a woman with five kids who’s about to spend 12 to 16 hours a day on the campaign trail is a heroic role model, an authentic spitfire, a political rock star and fantastic mother to boot.
But there's an added bonus, she says:
Teen raids liquor closet and pictures of teen and friends and gargantuan whiskey bottles wind up on celebrity gossip Perez Hilton’s Web site. Then teen gets pregnant by tart-tongued hockey star known around town as “sex on skates.”
The above describes some recent activities of Sarah Palin’s 17-year-old daughter. But, incredibly, nobody’s blaming Sarah.
And if it wasn’t her fault, by God, it won’t be ours, either, when one of our blessed darlings goes off the deep end.
