Newsweek Photo of Palin Shows Media Bias and Sexism

For all of you who live in a dream world and think the mainstream media isn't biased, get a load of the latest cover of Newsweek below:

You've got to hand it to the folks at Newsweek. They have accomplished being biased and sexist at the same time. Quite a feat. This cover has got to be a new low right? They don't use a photo of Palin on the campaign trail. No instead they take the sexy Runners World photo. Yes she posed for it but don't tell me they didn't purposely use that photo to make a point? I predict this cover will become a bigger story over the next 24-48 hours and let's face it. This isn't JUST about media bias. This cover should be insulting to women politicians. Where's the sexy photo of Mitt Romney? Why not a picture of Tim Pawlenty with an unbuttoned shirt relaxing on a couch in the Twin Cities?
By the way, where's the Newsweek headline that says, "Going Rogue and Going Places?" No instead we get Newsweek covers throughout the years like this one:

Conservative women are portrayed as nuts and dopey. Liberal women are heroes for the next generation.
Oy-vey. Someone get me a sedative.
