St Louis Housewife Debra Carnahan attacks Working Mom Sarah Palin

Congressman Russ Carnahan's (D-MO) wife, Debra Carnahan, participated in a round table discussion on PBS's To the Contrary this past May (error ridden transcriptmp3 audio). In her opening remark, Mrs. Carnahan took a shot at Sarah Palin. Here's what she had to say about Palin's "frontier feminism":
I don't believe that Sarah Palin is the leader of frontier feminism. Frontier feminism was and is real. Sarah Palin is the leader of something. I'm not sure what, but I would call it snake oil.
At which point one of the other panelists politely laughs—perhaps in embarrassment at Mrs. Carnahan's odd suggestion that snake oil requires a leader. Maybe if the snake oil was spilled someone would need to lead the cleanup effort, but I digress.

If you support Sarah Palin or think Mrs. Carnahan is the one peddling snake oil, you can do your part to erode her political status by supporting either her husband's primary opponent, Edward Crim, or his likely Republican challenger come November, Ed Martin.
