From Media Matters:
There are a lot of legitimate reasons Newsweek's November 23 issue, however, does just that by publishing on its cover a photo of Palin in short running shorts and a fitted top, leaning against the American flag. Making matters worse is the equally offensive headline Newsweek editors chose to run alongside the photo -- "How Do You Solve a Problem like Sarah?" -- presumably a reference to the Sound of Music song, "Maria," in which nuns fret about "how" to "solve a problem like Maria," a "girl" who "climbs trees" and whose "dress has a tear." to criticize Sarah Palin, her new book, and her policies, but you don't have to stoop to sexism to do it.

By the way, Media Matters also points out that the Newsweek's sexist treatment doesn't stop at the cover, continues throughout the article with pictures of Palin's legs and a Palin doll in school girl uniform. While Media Matters does call out Newsweek's sexist treatment of Palin, it also gives a thumbs up to the lame content of the article. Hey it's a start.
I am beginning to think that I was right when I said that the Oprah interview humanized Palin. It is going to be much harder to disrespect Palin like the left did before without pissing off new people. Perhaps this book tour and all the interviews on the lamesteam media will produce a Sarah Palin 2.0. It will be interesting to see Palin's approval ratings after the book tour.
