Yes, it's sexist.

Hey, Obama's also a controversial cutie -- why doesn't Newsweek run a cover pic of him shirtless playing basketball, hmmm? Because it would be disrespectful, that's why.

Just as it's disrespectful to run this photo of Palin in her shorts on the cover of an alleged NEWS magazine. (A shot Newsweek stole from "Runner's World" magazine.)

Ironically, the below quote accompanied Palin's "Runner's World" article:

"It doesn't matter your background, your demographics, your race, your political
affiliation, it's such a uniting, healthy, fun, awesome activity. It cracks me up going to some running event and seeing some dude who campaigned so hard against me, or a lady who's been blogging some mean comments about me. But we're all there together and we're smiling and we're having a good time because we're going to do something healthy and active. We need more of that."

The idiotic, overtly biased behavior of the corporately intertwined Newsweek/NBC/MSNBC ever since the 2008 Presidential campaign is every bit as bad as that of the right-wing Fox network, on the other end of the political spectrum. In fact, while I still can't stomach Glenn Beck's drama, it's now come to the point where I, a life-long Democrat, would much rather watch the relatively sane Bill O'Reilly on Fox rather than the overtly insane, snarky, asshole Keith Olbermann on MSNBC any day of the week.
