Pundit Mom's questions for "maverick" Sarah Palin

Yesterday I got the Soccer Mom Myth newsletter in my email box, and the authors asked whether the term "maverick" would resonate with women as well as it does with men, given that one of the definitions of maverick is an unbranded calf, cow, or steer, esp. an unbranded calf that is separated from its mother.

What an ironic identifier of rugged American individualism as applied to a mother of five!

Lots of Moms have questions for Sarah Palin, and Pundit Mom came up with an excellent list that she wrote as a blog posting on MomsRising.org, An Open Letter to Sarah Palin from Working Moms.

So go read the whole post!
