Another thing I saw (and I'm sure a lot of you as well), the Sarah Palin eye-roll/look video when she asked a woman her profession. The woman's answer, "I'm a teacher." Whether you call it an eye-roll, a "oh no" look or just plain disrespect, it's there for all to see. It isn't until the woman says she has other jobs and her husband is a commercial fisherman, does Ms. Palin look happy.
Really? Is that what we have sunk to in this country that just saying you're a teacher earns that kind of reaction? Because whatever you think of the union or public education, getting up every day and standing before a classroom full of kids and trying to impart knowledge IS hard work. And no, I'm not saying all teachers are great or saints but c'mon, this woman wanted to be Vice-President and she couldn't afford this woman the respect she might give any working person in this country. (And you have to wonder about how the people who teach her children feel.)
