Has the New York Times Endorsed Sarah Palin?

No. But listen to what they wrote a little over 24 years ago about another allegedly ‘inexperienced’ woman candidate for Vice President:

Where is it written that only senators are qualified to become President?… Or where is it written that mere representatives aren’t qualified, like Geraldine Ferraro of Queens?… Where is it written that governors and mayors, like Dianne Feinstein of San Francisco, are too local, too provincial?… Presidential candidates have always chosen their running mates for reasons of practical demography, not idealized democracy…. What a splendid system, we say to ourselves, that takes little-known men, tests them in high office and permits them to grow into statesmen…Why shouldn’t a little-known woman have the same opportunity to grow?
(New York Times, July 3, 1984)

What’s changed? Could it be that the New York Times has an editorial double standard?

No kidding.

    A newspaper being two faced? One that has a double standard? When did that start happening?

    I just thought of something but I just got out of my room for bad behavior, and bit by jaw-zilla…and now I am just hanging out laughing with you. K? Christian

    Sorry, Darla. I gotta stay in for another hour and can’t talk to no one. K.

    This is hysterical. Has the NY Times contacted you to explain their position?
