Sports News Without Access, Favor, Or Discretion

Rich Eisen's wife, former ABC Sportscaster Suzy Shuster, has this occasional column for lib dumping ground The Huffington Post and is fast emerging as one of the most terrifying women on the planet due to her attack dog writing-style. Last Friday, Shuster took the vice presidential nominee to task for flaunting her five-month old baby, Trig, as a political prop. The column touched a nerve with many political media folks, who accused Shuster "of stooping so low" to call out the Alaska governor for it. Shuster wrote:

Why is this child up so late every time there is a camera op? Why isn't this baby sleeping in a crib or bassinet somewhere with a sleep sheep or some other sound apparatus lulling him into night-night? Is it just me or does it seem like she carts this poor child around like a living breathing example of how wonderful a mom she is? After all, she's more than adopted the "I'm just a mom, just like you moms out there, America" attitude.


Granted, Shuster might be particularly sensitive to this issue since she just became a new mother herself, but the column does seem a little over-reactionary and, considering Trig Palin's special-needs status, a little cruel. But considering Shuster's reputation for firing off angry screeds without thinking of the possible circumstances, it's not at all surprising that she went a little overboard with her criticism. Thankfully, Sarah Palin didn't dress Trig in a revealing bikini . Shuster really would have let her have it. Say It Ain't So: Trig Palin's Post-Debate Photo Op [Huffington Post]
