This is offensive on so many levels, I have to wonder about the editors of US News & World Report. It appears that tone-deafness is becoming a national epidemic. Media Matters:

US News & World Report's Washington Whispers page currently features a poll asking readers who they would prefer to run a daycare center for their kids: First Lady Michelle Obama, Alaska Governor Sarah Palin, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, or Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi.

Actually, it's a pretty easy answer. Given how completely immature and childish the Republicans in Congress have been acting, Nancy Pelosi is a shoo-in. Maybe she can even potty-train them.

What's next, USN&WR, wanna ask which female member of Congress would best serve her constituents by being barefoot and pregnant?

UPDATE: Ugh. At last check, Palin was WAYYYY ahead. I really hope that poll was Freeped, because that's just a scary percentage of people who want a woman who advocates abstinence-only education despite a pregnant teenager and who opts to fly 20 hours in labor with a high risk pregnancy caring for their kids.
