Palin Media Avoidance Watch: Day 9 -- McCain Camp Says She Won't Do Interviews
Until It Knows She'll Be Treated with "Deference"
those reporters can be such big meanies!!
As a woman who has climbed the corporate ladder, I find Palin's nomination a slap in the face, to be quite honest.  She got her nomination on the basis of social promotion, not on the basis of any merit, and her refusal to talk to the media because she's scared they may not treat her with 'deference' is deeply offensive.  If she were a man, NO ONE would be pandering to this level of 'delicacy'. And in fact, no one is backing off the three dudes in the race, so why is she getting special dispensation? And why isn't anyone questioning the fact that her lack of backbone doesn't cut it when she's applying for a job that demands tough mindedness?  
If she wants to run with the big dogs, and apparently she does since she sees herself as a 'pitbull with lipstick', then she needs to get off the porch and start running.  The big dogs aren't and should not give her any quarter on the basis of her gender.  If she continues to take the stance that she won't answer questions until she gets 'deference', then women everywhere should rise up against her simply because her behavior then provides a metric that says women are not in fact equally as competent as men.  This twit is selling women short for her own aggrandizement.   Pitbull? I think not - how about a chihuahua in lipstick. 
'Deference'...amazing.  I don't get 'deference' in the board room because of my gender.  I get respect in the board room because I've earned it by being tough when I need to be, fair when I need to be, and not being afraid to answer to my board members, period, paragraph, end of story,   If Palin's too much of a woosy to get off her demure little porch and start taking the inevitable body shots, the hard questions....well Vagina Gate 08, anyone?
