Am I sexist if ...

I don't want Sarah Palin in the White House?

A reader passed along this YouTube creation, which asks whether it's sexist to "want a pilot to fly the plane," "an engineer to design the building," and "a surgeon to do the operation." This is, of course, about Sarah Palin -- because, these days, what isn't? (Seriously, ask me any routine question. What's new? How are you enjoying work? What's for dinner? Sarah. Palin.) After the video calls upon the expert in each field, it shows a photo of Palin and asks: Would you want her to fly the plane/design the building/perform the operation?

So, yeah, you know from the start of the video to expect the rhetorical climax at the end -- "Am I sexist if I want a qualified person in the White House?" -- but it's kind of satisfying, nonetheless.
