Washington Post's Quinns Smears a Giant Leap Backwards for Womankind

Well continuing on with the theme-dijour of the Palin nomination, Sally Quinn of the Washington Post had to throw her two cents in:

The Washington Post's Sally Quinn Questioned Whether A Woman With Five Children And One Having Down Syndrome Would Be Able To Make Her Family A Priority If She Were Vice President.

SALLY QUINN: "And I do think, too, that you have to weigh the situation. It's one thing to have one or two or three children, especially if they are healthy children. And everyone knows that women and men are different and that moms and dads are different and that women — the burden of child care almost always falls on the woman. But I think, when you have five children, one a 4-month-old Down syndrome baby, and a daughter who is 17, who is also a child and who is going to need her mother very much in the next few months and years with her own baby coming, that I don't see how you cannot make your family your first priority. And I think if you are going to be president of the United States, which she may well be, I think that's going to be a real stretch for her." (CNN's "Newsroom," 9/2/08)

Interesting perspective Sally, but doesn't this go against the entire "Women's Rights/Women's Liberation" movement? Basically, her article is implying, that VP Nominee Sarah Palin couldn't possibly have a family and be a Vice-President at the same time. I mean, oh, wait a second...Al Gore was married....um, hmmm, who was the last and only Vice-President of the United States that didn't have a family? William Rufus de Vane King who served under President Pierce administration of 1853.

Is it really any of Sally Quinn's business? Would she ask Barack Obama to quit campaigning and stay home and raise his daughters because they are a minority and in a risky demographic? For that matter, Quinn makes no mention what-so-ever Palin's husbands contributions to raising the children. Honestly, Quinn's glancing blows would never be made to a man, or a liberal woman for that matter, but its a way for her to empatheticly stick a knife into the back of another woman in the name of "women's rights."

So in the spirit of things, I decided to do a little research on Ms. Quinn. Found out a few interesting things about her.

Her first interview with the Washington Post with Managing Editor Ben Bradlee consisted of the following (Source Wikipedia):

"Can you show me something you've written?" asked Managing Editor Benjamin Bradlee. "I've never written anything," admitted Quinn. Pause. "Well," said Bradlee, "nobody's perfect."

*Putting on my Liberal Smear Goggles*

Ah, so there we have it. She is completely inexperienced for such an important job. More over it is quite obvious by the statements of Bradlee there was some sort of inappropriate relationship going on between he and Quinn for him to offer her a job in which she is totally unqualified for.

*Goggles Off*...Now I have a headache.

A notable incident of her career was her claim that Zbigniew Brzezinski, then the National Security Adviser, jokingly opened his fly in front of a reporter, a claim that the Post retracted the following day.

*Goggles On* ...everything's rosed colored now.

Ah, so another lie. And was this some sort of sexual harassment? I think Brzezinski might have a seriously claim against this predator Quinn. I mean if roles were reversed and Quinn had her fly down and Brzezinski made comment about it....oh well, never mind, who would want to look....

*Goggles Off* ...Man I don't think anyone should be allowed to drive impaired like that.

In August 1973, Quinn tried her hand at television, joining CBS News reporter Hughes Rudd as co-anchors of the CBS Morning News.[3] The show's anchoring team was its first disaster since debuting in 1963 -- ninety minutes before her television debut on August 6, 1973, Quinn, who never reported for television before, collapsed while trying to fight the flu. The next day, she was forced to anchor solo when Rudd's mother died. Quinn's ad libs during the show's first week also tended toward the inappropriate -- on one episode, following a report on the children of California migrant farm workers, she quipped that child labor "was how I felt when my mother and father made me clean up my room." Quinn left the CBS Morning News after the February 1, 1974 telecast.

*Goggles On, Weapon Systems Armed*

This is just a an extension of the failed policies of CBS. Truly no one could afford four more years of Quinn and they canned her. Also this might be a serious indication that the woman could not have a family and a job at the same time since she is 0-2 in the journalism department up until this point. Further, she may be incapable of walking and chewing gum at the same time and there is a very high probability that she suffers from Down Syndrome herself.

*Goggles Off*...Now I Know how Jim Carey felt in the movie The Mask

Regarding Whitewater independent counsel Ken Starr, she wrote:[6] "Similarly, independent counsel Ken Starr is not seen by many Washington insiders as an out-of-control prudish crusader. Starr is a Washington insider, too. He has lived and worked here for years. He had a reputation as a fair and honest judge. He has many friends in both parties. Their wives are friendly with one another and their children go to the same schools." Starr had won the gratitude of Quinn's husband Ben Bradlee in 1987, as an Appeals Court judge, by dismissing a $2 million libel suit against the Washington Post. [7] It was also pointed out by Harry Jaffe, writing for Salon, that Quinn's condemnation of Bill Clinton's adultery rang hollow coming from someone who broke up the marriage of her boss Ben Bradlee and then went on to marry Bradlee herself.[8]

*Goggles On. Vomit Bucket Out*

SEEEEEE I TOLD YOU SHE WAS BANGING BRADLEE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Quinn knows about breaking up families so she must really know about what it takes to raise a family!

*Goggles Off*

(Regarding Barack Obama) In early May 2007, liberal Web sites and commentators were critical of Quinn for an extensive op-ed piece published in the Washington Post in which she complimented herself at length for not noticing the color of his skin: "I realized that when I look at him, I don't see a person of color. I see a really smart, appealing, thoughtful person."

*Handing Goggles to Teddy Kennedy*

So this woman has a history of discriminatory speech. Excellent. Maybe she was a Klansman in a former life. Hell, you know I know a guy who knows a guy who knows a guy that says she burns wooden lower case t's in her front yard. So it must be true!

*Ensures no secretaries are in Teddy's car and lets him drive off*

Quinn also owns three homes, one in East Hampton, one in Washington and one in Maryland each valued in the millions of dollars, so you know she is the typical stay at home apple-pie baking woman who knows all about raising a family...NOT. This woman breaks up a marriage and is a miserable failure at journalism. No wonder she is so afraid that Palin can't do both jobs. Quinn can't even do one right!

Remember folks, the spin works both ways and the left needs to be careful about the path it heads down. As much as they try to paint conservatives as the party of old fools, they completely forget the new generation of conservatives who are every bit as smart and savvy and witty and cute with their attacks as they think they are.

They don't call this place the Flying Circus for nothing, folks.

We don't need to use *spin* and lies, the truth serves us quite well...

And isn't it amazing how the *left* is so Pro everything female, until it's a Republican female??

Hypocrisy is their station in life...

I find it funny that the "feminists" are against Palin for the fact that she is a mother. Not for her record, but on that fact alone.
