Barack Obama and the Democrats find themselves behind in the election for the first time since the Iowa primary in January. Barack Obama and Joe Biden appear to have blindsided by the snowstorm from Alaska of Sarah Palin. Barack Obama seems unsure of how to respond and he is lashing out with disastrous results. Yesterday he called Sarah Palin a pig and today he’s ranting and raving about the attention the media is paying to this gaffe.

Other Democrats are similarly lashing out with attacks that will not bode well for Barack Obama and certainly will not bring over fence sitters. Today South Carolina Democratic chair told Politico that Sarah Palin’s only qualification is that she hasn’t had an abortion.

South Carolina Democratic chairwoman Carol Fowler sharply attacked Sarah Palin today, saying John McCain had chosen a running mate ” whose primary qualification seems to be that she hasn’t had an abortion.”

Palin is an opponent of abortion rights and gave birth to her fifth child, Trig, earlier this year after finding out during her pregnancy that the baby had Down syndrome.

“Among Democratic women and even among independent women, I don’t think it helped him,” she said.

Told of McCain’s boost in the new ABC/Washington Post among white women following the Palin pick, Fowler said: “Just anecdotally, I believe that those white women are Republican women anyway.”
