In between various media and other convention reporting, I'm working on a story about the Mainstream Media's talking points against Palin. Here are some of common questions I'm finding the "objective" anchors are asking their GOP-leaning guests on television. My paraphrasing:

-Sarah Palin is only a small-town mayor, what makes you think she's qualified for this job?

-Sarah Palin knew she was going to put her family through an intense media vetting process. How could she put her pregnant daughter though that? Isn't she a bad mom? Shouldn't she just stay home and bake cookies instead?

-John McCain only picked Sarah Palin because she's a woman. Isn't that tokenism?
