Todd Palin Shatters the Glass Floor

Everyone seems to keep forgetting to mention Todd Palin and that he is Father of five children and the husband of Sarah Palin. Are fathers not important?

Since the selection of Governor Sarah Palin as John McCain’s Vice Presidential running mate, the liberal left has been in a frenzy. After years of supposed championing women’s rights, liberals and feminists are now attacking the one woman who shattered one of the highest glass ceilings in our nation. Could it possibly be true that the national organizations for womens rights are only there for the advancement of “liberal” women?

Pundits and polls question how this mother of five (one with special needs) will be able handle the job of Vice President and role of mother at the same time. Washington Post columnist Sally Quinn complained “Her first priority has to be her children”. Reporters Katty Kay and Claire Shipman wrote, “It’s not because she’s a woman with children trying to do a man’s job. It’s because she’s actually pushing the combination of professional and personal ambitions beyond the sensibilities of this generation of working moms.”

Is Sarah Palin a single mom? Todd Palin quit his job when his wife was elected Governor to help take care of the children. Mr. Palin is not unlike many fathers. This generation of working moms has supportive husbands. The number of stay at home dads has risen 83 percent since 1996.

Some refuse to acknowledge this because men are supposed to be abusers and oppressors, rather than supporters and partners. Some feminists and the media are still clinging to Gloria Steinem’s outdated remarks that “a woman without a man is like a fish without a bicycle.” They refuse to accept that fathers are important, and yes, competent.

Studies have shown that children of involved fathers have higher I.Q.s, fare better in school, are more emotionally secure, and are less likely to get into trouble at home, school and their community. Instead of being bumbling idiots, as portrayed by liberals in Hollywood, fathers have a positive and deep impact on their children.

Fathers are not just merely to earn money, take out the trash and cut the grass.

Todd Palin just shattered the grass floor.
