Last semester in a different Comm class we watched a video similar to the documentary we watched in class on Wednesday, and how the media portrays women in politics. First off I feel Ed Schutz's comment on how if any female politican had the same reaction that John Boehner did that they would be heavily criticized for it was spot on, and says a lot about the way that we view women in politics. I also had the thought about how one interview talked about how Hillary Clinton was often criticized for her looks because her attackers couldn't attack her record, because she had a good one. I started thinking this in contrast to Sarah Palin who was the complete opposite. Sarah Palin was constantly being celebrated for her looks, and I wonder if this is because she did not have the experience that Hillary did.
