Who's Watching <em>Norah O'Donnell's</em> Kids?

MSNBC's Norah O'Donell has given voice to the idea that Sarah Palin would be neglecting her child if she accepts the Republican vice presidential nomination.  Of course, she does this by cloaking the question in the imaginary third person "some people are saying" ...  Watch the video:

This is interesting, inasmuch as Norah O'Donnell has 1 1/2 year-old twins -- and a 1-month old.   Meanwhile, her husband owns three restaurants -- and she is in Minnesota covering a political convention for a week! 

Who's watching her kids during this presidential race this year? 

... Okay, let's be fair.  I honestly don't believe there is anything wrong with Norah covering this race.  But her questions to guests do raise serious questions about the way she's covering this race.  

If nothing else, I think this illustrates media hypocrisy -- where reporters are criticizing Palin for doing essentially the same thing they, themselves -- as career women -- have decided is best for their families.
