Free Sarah Palin! CNN’s Campbell Brown Grows A Pair On Behalf Of The Media

CNN’s Campbell Brown totally tore the McCain camp a new you-know-what for banning reporters from questioning Sarah Palin while she was in New York yesterday meeting with world leaders at the United Nations. Don’t have the patience to watch the vid? Transcript after the jump…

“Tonight I call on the McCain campaign to stop treating Sarah Palin like she is a delicate flower that will wilt at any moment. This woman is from Alaska for crying out loud. She is strong. She is tough. She is confident. And you claim she is ready to be one heart beat away form the presidency. If that is the case, then end this chauvinistic treatment of her now. Allow her to show her stuff. Allow her to face down those pesky reporters… Let her have a real news conference with real questions. By treating Sarah Palin different from the other candidates in this race, you are not showing her the respect she deserves. Free Sarah Palin. Free her from the chauvinistic chain you are binding her with. Sexism in this campaign must come to an end. Sarah Palin has just as much a right to be a real candidate in this race as the men do. So let her act like one.”

Dang Campbell, we didn’t know you had it in you! Suffice it to say, sexism has been hard at work during this campaign and Sarah Palin certainly has faced some of it — but isn’t it true that some of that sexism has come from her own campaign, as Brown suggests? [Huffington Post]
