And Todd Palin is no milquetoast kept man, that’s for certain. He’s a part-Eskimo oil rig worker who’s also a champion snowmobile racer and now stays home to raise the kids.
He seems the perfect embodiment of this classic Robert A. Heinlein quote:
A human being should be able to change a diaper, plan an invasion, butcher a hog, conn a ship, design a building, write a sonnet, balance accounts, build a wall, set a bone, comfort the dying, take orders, give orders, cooperate, act alone, solve equations, analyze a new problem, pitch manure, program a computer, cook a tasty meal, fight efficiently, die gallantly. Specialization is for insects.
Who wears the pants in that family? They both do!
