Palin is what you get when no one believes you want anything more than to be indulged and fettered , rather than engaged and responsible. Palin is what you get when teh way you wield and identify power is observed and handed back to you. Poorly executed ( as Sylvia so adroitly and in a fashion that had me spitting grapefruit juice out my nose points out) but in essence a nice and succinct way for the way essentially we have treated women who are not able to boost the cachet/profile blah blah.
