Harry Reid is attacking Palin as “shrill.” Look under “gall” in the dictionary for a photo of Harry Reid.
They just can’t keep a lid on the chauvinism, can they?
Speaking of which, reader Mike G. e-mails after watching the flustered MSNBC jerks:
I decided to suffer through a few minutes of the gasbags on NBC and just as I tune in I hear Olbermann saying oh so sternly, “I have to wonder though, if the sarcasm was the proper tone.”
Right. Because only liberal men who are attacking conservatives are allowed to employ sarcasm in the service of Hope and Change.
Here you go:
Sen. Harry Reid isn’t about to back away from a fight, even with the VP pick. This response comes from Reid’s spokesman Jim Manley after Sarah Palin attacked the senator in her speech tonight:
“Anyone who knows Senator Reid knows he never backs down when he’s fighting for what’s right and that he always stands up to John McCain when he is wrong,” Reid’s spokesman said.
“Shrill and sarcastic political attacks may fire up the Republican base, but they don’t change the fact that a McCain-Palin administration would mean four more years of failed bush-Cheney policies.”
Update 12:55am Eastern. Oh, triple-crikey. Democrat Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (a mother of three herself who was profiled sympathetically in the old WaPo piece I blogged out a few days ago) is on CNN seriously arguing that nooooooo one on the Left has argued that Palin can’t juggle motherhood and the vice presidency at the same time.
Rep. Wasserman Schultz, meet Sally Quinn and Ed Schultz, etc., etc., etc.

Georgetown University professor Deborah Tannen, who has written best-selling books on gender differences, said she agrees with complaints that Palin skeptics — including prominent voices in the news media — have crossed a line by speculating about whether the Alaska governor is neglecting her family in pursuit of national office.
“What we’re dealing with now, there’s nothing subtle about it,” said Tannen. “We’re dealing with the assumption that child-rearing is the job of women and not men. Is it sexist? Yes.”
Update: Kyle-Anne Shiver…Palin rules, libs drool.
