re: US: Shelly Mandel (NOW) Endorses Palin (Soraya Sepahpour-Ulrich, US; ex-Iran) (John Eipper, USA, 10/28/08 4:46 am)

Soraya Sepahpour-Ulrich responds to Nushin Namazi's post of October
27, concerning the gender balance between the salaries of Obama's and
McCain's staffers:

I first heard of this outrageous allegation on Fox news. As an independent
researcher, I consider it an obligation on my part to watch Fox "news" in
order to understand how and when misinformation is being propagated.
*National Review* Online, which Ms. Namazi has forwarded, is home to notorious
neoconservatives who have not serve this country's interests, but an agenda
that only leads to escalating conflict around the globe. Their allegations
are unfounded and dangerous--much like Fox.

Here is some news on equal pay: If a male and female worked at the same job
but the female got less pay, or anyone for that matter, this would be
considered inequality. One hardly "averages out" pay into the number of
people--male or female. As far as choosing advisers: frankly, I would like
a candidate to choose the best, male or female is irrelevant. Emphasizing
gender/color/race is itself discriminatory. What is important is for all
to pay a fair pay. Misleading the public about such issues is not
acceptable. These are serious times. The world in a recession. America is
in deep trouble financially, as it finds itself engaged in two wars with an
uncertain future. With so many challenges at home and abroad, the future
president must act wisely and benefit himself from the best council
available to him--that is good judgment. We must learn to care about
America, the world, and put ourselves last for a change. While the order
may change (the world, America), certainly it is time to put ourselves last.

I wonder why NRO or Fox have not mentioned the fact that Palin or McCain, who
seem to be so concerned about women and children, drag a 7-8 year old child
on stage throughout the campaign holding a few month-old special needs baby?
I would have thought that the most important thing a child needs is
stability, rest, and discipline, not being another ornament on a campaign

JE comments: If indeed the pay for women McCain staffers "averages
out" relatively higher than for Obama's staff, this is a statistic
worth noting. I do agree with Soraya Sepahpour-Ulrich, however, that
it is inappropriate for Sarah Palin to parade out her children at
every turn on the campaign trail. Are these true "family values" or
is it merely opportunism?
