The Gutman standard has now been proffered by countless Obama hacks and water-carrying commentators. Damningly, it’s high-powered working mothers in the journalism business who are helping to broadcast the anti-Palin slams or doing nothing to defend her.

One other aspect not being discussed is that Todd is NOT going to be welding steel, at least not for a living, while his wife is VP and then P.

In addition, neither Todd or Sarah will even have to pick up a set of keys for the next 12 years, as they’ll have the Secret Service (rightfully) at their whim. Even with Trig, the Palin’s will have it MUCH easier in DC than they ever would have in Juneau.

The only thing you would be hearing about Katie is some pre-staged, pre-written puff piece. Not the real thing.
