Your liberal media…making sure Sarah Palin has a legitimate gripe:
There are a lot of legitimate reasons to criticize Sarah Palin, her new book, and her policies, but you don’t have to stoop to sexism to do it. Newsweek’s November 23 issue, however, does just that by publishing on its cover a photo of Palin in short running shorts and a fitted top, leaning against the American flag. Making matters worse is the equally offensive headline Newsweek editors chose to run alongside the photo — “How Do You Solve a Problem like Sarah?” — presumably a reference to the Sound of Music song, “Maria,” in which nuns fret about “how” to “solve a problem like Maria,” a “girl” who “climbs trees” and whose “dress has a tear.”

There really are no words. Now when Palin’s supporters complain that she has been subjected to an absolutely horrific double standard, this is exhibit number one. Thanks Newsweak! I’m sure the conservative victimhood machine will utilize this to the fullest extent possible, because they will (for once) have an actual point.
