R. Daneel Olivaw for President!

"If a child becomes ill and is rushed to the hospital, and you're on the hotline with both Israel and Iran as nuclear tempers are flaring, where's your attention going to be?" That would be Dr. Laura talking about Sarah Palin.

Apparently she doesn't realize that she just made the case for electing robots to the Presidency, or maybe orphans raised by wolves. Because any human person - certainly any person with enough human feeling that you'd want them running things - is going to have loved ones. And people worry about their loved ones and are potentially distracted when bad things happen to them.

How insulting is it to men that she thinks a father (which would be every President I remember) would carry right on as if nothing of import were happening when their child was ill or in danger?

Exactly! A woman at work said she thinks it unfortunate that Palin "put her 17 yo pregnant daughter OUT THERE" for the world to attack. She should have passed on the nomination! Yeah, right!

Dr. Laura's comment is nothing short of stupid. It really bothers me that these questions are/were never asked of male candidates.
