The Republicans are REALLY out of touch on Palin

The other day, Newsbusters proved how out of touch the republicans and Palin supporter are as evidenced by a spaz attack spurred by Andrea Mitchell's comment that only uneducated Hillary Clinton supporters will vote for Sarah Palin. In his post, Warner Todd Huston not only railed against Mitchell for her comment:

So, only the stupid, uneducated, working class ninnies will be somehow fooled into voting for the McCain/Palin ticket, Andrea? Them thar smart, educated, upper class women are too smart for that? Is that what we are saying here, Andrea?
He then went on to completely miss Mitchell's point by adding:
So, on top of calling any women who might vote for McCain because of the addition of Sarah Palin to the ticket uneducated, Mitchell needlessly strayed off topic to search for some way to make Republicans look mean.

No Mr. Huston, Andrea Mitchell did not indicate that any woman who voted for Sarah Palin is uneducated, she stated that any Hillary Clinton supporter who voted for Sarah Palin is either woefully uneducated as to what Clinton's candidacy stood for or is so inconsiderate of the state of this nation and her responsibility as a citizen that the sole determinant of who gets her vote is the gender of the candidate. If the republican supporters for the McCain-Palin ticket can not tell the significant difference between Sarah Palin and Hillary Clinton, one has to wonder why those who were foaming at the mouth to ward off a Hillary Clinton presidency would so readily embrace Ms. Palin.

The only thing I can think of is that, perhaps, the republican party just thinks all women are interchangeable (though, since they tend to think all married women with children should be home raising their babies, one has to wonder why Sarah Palin and the "traditional values" Christotheocracy set would find Palin to be a palatable running mate unless they think the VP actually a queen and that our republic form of government should really be a monarchy).
