A conservative meme regarding Palin?

I thought the left-wing had a monopoly on creating anti-Palin memes, but it seems that the right-wing has its own agenda.

Per Roderic Deane:
The new, pro-Bachmann conservative meme

We know that the left likes to create false impressions about their favorite media target, Sarah Palin. They create a false idea and then repeat it over and over in the media until it becomes taken as fact. I wrote about a current left-wing meme here. It now appears that certain right-wing elements have taken up the same mission, only in this case it is in defense of a Bachmann Presidential run versus one by Sarah Palin.

Michelle Bachmann commented in an interview with Ralph Reed that she felt it was important to complete your parenting activities before entering public life. I blogged about it in a post titled "Sarah, who need enemies with friends like Bachmann?" I also included a video of Bachmann's exchange with Reed.

It now appears that certain right-wing commentators have taken up Bachmann's cause in portraying Sarah Palin as wrong in pursuing a political career while raising a family. In a post appearing on The American Spectator website, R. Emmett Tyrrell, Jr. takes up where Bachmann left off. He writes:

Bachmann and Palin are sufficiently charismatic for me, and both have raised families, Bachmann five children of her own and 23 foster children before entering public life. That is the proper sequence of events: raise a family, enter public life.
You can read the rest here.

  1. Not to denigrate Bachmann's personal choices in the least, but how utterly misogynistic can one be to suggest that a woman must raise a family before entering public life? No one makes that stipulation for male political candidates, many of whom have young children. What a troglodyte!
    These people should be ashamed of themselves.
