TBogg, who blogs at Firedoglake, doesn’t want to miss an excuse to take a dig at Trig Palin, Sarah Palin’s son who was born with Down Syndrome. The excuse this time is the Newsweek cover showing what even Media Matters calls a sexist portrayal of Palin.
What does the cover and the allegations of sexism have to do with Trig Palin? Absolutely nothing, but that doesn’t stop TBogg from taking this cheap shot (caps and link in original):
…there is a distinct lack of action photography. No sweat. No blotchy skin. No visual evidence of a endorphin epiphany. What there is, besides the all-important reminder that she is the mother of BABY TRIG, GOD’S VERY OWN SPECIAL ANGEL YES HE IS – YES HE IS!, is a series of modelish poses of the type you might find accompanying a “Run for Your Life!” article in Marie Claire.
Perhaps Media Matters also will write about the obsessive need for some left-wing bloggers to mock and attack Trig Palin.
