    I think, collectively, women are getting really tired of watching Palin get run through the meat grinder for basically nothing. No male losing VP has gone through this type of non-stop harassment. It's getting noticed.

    It speaks to the sheer fear of liberals that a wife and mother could rise to the ranks she has and maintained her conservative roots. That's impossible by the by-laws or liberalism.

    I think what it really boils down to, is that the Libbos won't allow the Republicans to put the first woman president in the White House. Can you imagine the trash talk that PBO would have endured if had been a Conservative? The Libbos would have called him everything from Uncle Tom to porch monkey.

    That's what Fox news Argued with Al Frankin... And lost.

    I'm not sure that you really understand what a trademark is. We're not talking about the golden arches here... (Coming To American, McDowell's restaurant). Pick up the book. Look at it. Read the title.

    And you can't copywrite an idea, only the expression of the idea. The dark skies book could be seen as a parody of the Palin's book. In which case the first amendment would kick and Caribou Barbie is SOL.

    It will be interesting to see how this plays out.

    If Palin's book is with a big publishing house, they could refuse to ship books to stores that carry the other book. I'm sure Starbucks will be selling the dark skies version.

    It's quite true. Hillary Clinton was the target of an enormous PR campaign against her, and seen to some degree as the both the one person Republicans both didn't want to face and wanted to face in the Presidential elections.

    Well, I, for one believe it. I don't know if it would have reached the same levels or not. To some extent, it is not the race that matters, it is the political or cultural philosophy that matters. Race will be used to justify people's distrust of someone. A black republican candidate or a female Republican candidate would face enormous difficulty answering the questions of "well, how could you support this platform if you are a _____". As a result, insults would be thrown at them.

    I don't which firm(s) handle her, but I can find out.

    I'm going to have to read both - Both seem very interesting.

    As has been pointed out, Hillary Clinton went through as much or more before she ever ran for office. I will give you that it seems at times that any strong woman is attacked hard...Clinton, Palin, Pelosi. Note though that two of those are liberals, so maybe the idea that it's only conservative women is just political posturing.

    By the way, most liberal women are wives and mothers. Despite all the claims otherwise, even liberals consider the idea of women as wifes and mothers as important.
