There’s a savage narrative developing among the media’s elite that suggests Alaskan Governor Sarah Palin will be a bad mother if she becomes the nation’s first female vice president.

MSNBC, CNN and the Washington Post have each hinted Palin may neglect her five children, including one with Down’s Syndrome should the Republicans win the White House in November. Democratic vice presidential candidate Joe Biden even spent a considerable amount of time opining about Palin’s looks while attempting to lay out the differences between himself and Palin.

Commentary: Feminism is not about advancing the cause of women but about advancing a left-wing agenda. Feminist never honor conservative women of achievement. Margaret Thatcher, Condoleezza Rice, Elizabeth Dole, or Sarah Palin cannot be considered feminist by the political feminist establishment, not because they are not women of achievement but because they are conservatives. It is much the same with the Civil Rights establishment: Michael Steele, J. C. Watts, Clarence Thomas and Colin Powell will never be honored by the Black establishment. Identity politics is not about righting wrongs or uplifting people but about advancing an agenda. Feminist activist are not above using sexism to advance their true agenda.
