There are plenty of things for which Sarah Palin can be criticized; her wacky notion that Creationism should be taught in biology classes or her assertion that rape and incest victims should be forced to bear the children resulting from those assaults, for instance.
But, I have seen over the past few days from commenters Left, Right and Wrong that the Governor should, "Stay home and take care of her kids." That's a silly argument that has no place in this debate.
We can and should talk about whether a woman whose political experience makes Dan Quayle look statesmanlike should be the backup for a 72-year-old cancer survivor. Palin's children have no position at this table until and unless she makes them an issue.
