And yeah, when Sarah Palin`s daughter gets pregnant out of wedlock but Mom doesn`t agree with sex ed. or abortion~I think there problems with that.
this is not an issue for moderates or democrats or whatever...but this IS and issue for right wing extreme religious ppl...which is who McCain played to with her nomination
normal ppl wouldn`t get bent out of shape about this...but its odd how there isn`t a major uproar in the conservative camp...maybe they`re growing up...but i remember when conservative would crucify the daughter and mother by association
but then why nominate her in the first place...since their big thing is religion, shouldn`t issues like sex and free will be the main thing on their mind, like the environment and our bill of rights are paramount in our minds?
also...why do far rights constantly say global warming is a myth/not a problem/not our fault? (Palin chooses it`s not our fault)
its the new iab thing, sarah palin
GAHH STOP TURNING THIS INTO A GOSSIP GAME. It is not. Just because you say it is doesn`t make it one.
I care about that Palin wants to enact an abstinence only education and not a well rounded sex education. Her family is living proof that this method doesn`t work because when kids are not going to listen and have sex anyway they aren`t educated on the ways to protect themselves as best possible.
That is what everyone is actually discussing who has any shred of intelligence. Why is this website incredibly right wing or just not very good at getting the POINT.
and its not to watch him squirm, or in any way attack his daughter...its to make him understand
tell him to look at his own daughter...he knows her better then anyone; and he knows that she would make a good parent...but no, he bowed to his base and wouldn`t retract his statement that, by association, hurt his own daughter
but bck on subject...i just heard about Trig and how she flew from Texas to Alaska after her water broke just so it could be born in Alaska...but not just Alaska, some hospital that wasn`t equipped for the special needs child (despite passing a hospital that WAS equipped for special needs children).
now THERE`S something fishy...
oddly selective open mind...
why if it was a family matter did Palin say anything at all? if it is no big deal, why not just say "she`s pregnant"?
while it may have sounded like she made no comment, she made a play to her base by saying she was going to have the child and get married...
because Palin is a right conservative, i can only assume she is against sex out of wedlock, unless she realizes ppl make their own choices and maybe her religion`s ideals should not be treated as black and white as she thought...
but what about Dick Cheney...should he have commented when asked if his child was suited to be a parent...since his previous comments clearly tells us he should say his child is not suited for parenthood? was it right for him not to answer on grounds that it was a family issue?
perhaps cheney should be expected to answer because his cabinet`s position more widely documented...
And to those who don`t care, there are people that would look at this and have doubts if the VP is truly a good person, and if she isn`t, McCain was worse off picking her. People can try and ignore it, but it`s always lingering in their mind. Just like Jackson was to Obama.
But seriously, who is the lucky sob that nailed this chick?
Yes, the kid screwed up; but she is not going to have an abortion.
Mom, did not try to cover up the first accusation because it was physically impossible.
B.O. backed off because picking on a 17 year old kid is pathetic (DO YA HERE ME I.A.B.?)
She wants to take out sex education in schools and put in abstinence only programs and that`s the point everyone is missing. It is something that obviously doesn`t work and her family is evidence of that. It should be brought up when the issue of sex education comes up.
Thats not fancylad.
I second that motion.
is someone says "her daughter is pregnant out of wedlock...yet conservatives constantly tell us how sexually promiscuous gays and lesbians are...maybe there`s something that can be said of conservative bigotry"...republicans will more than likely not debate this observation
more likely they will scream, yell, and repeat... "this is a family matter!!! leave her child out of this!!! respect their privacy!!! leave it to evil liberals to attack a defenseless girl!!!"
If McCain knew about this...the Republicans most likely would have said something. since Palin is supposed to bolster far right conservatives and women alike, it is unlikely that McCain would keep this bottled until now and released it only to put rumors to rest. If this was made mention of when she was first nominated, i would buy that McCain felt it was no big deal
Saying it now makes it seem more like a cover up...sex out of wedlock is a conservative taboo...McCain knows that and would have made a point to deal with the potential PR nightmare...
it may be that Bristol didn`t tell her parents until fairly recently (if she could hide it)...growing up in a ultra-conservative household, maybe she was afraid of how her parents would react...idk
either way...nominating a right wing republican VP and then casually saying "btw, her 17 year old unwed daughter is knocked up" doesn`t add up 2 me
Thats not fancylad.
that`s right you conservative mouthpiece!!!! i found a picture of ur secret gay lover!!!!
i knew u were hiding something because u constantly defend radical and, at times, nonsensical conservative arguments with reckless abandon...trying to tangle us further into ur web of horror!!!
we all know the fact that the Rep. VP`s deughter is pregnant out of wedlock is not an issue (despite the fact that conservative republicans believe in abstinence-only sex education despite scientific research suggesting safe-sex education is a more sound plan)
yea but srsly...this is some crazy stuff...
I personally believe he did know. Now McCain just offered up everyone a chance to throw in a sympathy vote. `O she is so strong because she gave birth to a child with downs and supports her teenage daughters pregnancy`.
Whatever, how about troopergate, her over the top right wing politics,drilling on anything in a futile attempt to "help the energy crisis", wanting creationism to be taught in classes, pro-life no matter what, even less experience than Obama and frankly half as educated.
Of course, this all only matters if VPs actually did. Well, unless of course your power mad Cheney.
Still, I like all the Palin posts, she is very easy on the eyes
Nope dom, it`s just you. Personally, I think goaliejerry rocks the mic.
What does it matter that her daughter got knocked up. Does that mean she wouldn`t be able to help McCain run the country? NO. It means her daughter made a mistake that MILLIONS of young women make every day around the world.
Get over it people and quit shoving into the lives of other people. You`ve got plenty on your own plate to worry about.
Yes, he says he did, otherwise he would look like he made a rash, ill-informed decision. BUT Come On, knowing this, one would still pick her? NO WAY IN HELL.
Hurricanes have to do what with family values?
2) YES, it DOES have something to do with politics - it speaks to how well Palin is raising her kids. Someone`s not watching the kids, perhaps because *someone* cares more about her job than her family?
First, the hurricane, now this. TALK ABOUT IRONY! FAMILY VALUES PARTY INDEED.
Obama and his camp have the respect to leave the matter alone, but Republicans like Anne Coulter would be all over Biden if it were his daughter.
Note, however, that their daughter at 17 is getting married... they of course have to throw out there that the mother and father will be getting married to have a hunky-dory life. That`s the only way it`d be acceptable in the eyes of the Republican camp. How much you want to bet one of them doesn`t actually want to get married?
Great timing indeed.
im not talking about mccain picking her before or after. the fact that it just came out is kind of ironic, besides the fact, i was just pointing out scary they both are if they were to be head of the country.
But in the long run this is just the media`s attempt to assassinate her character before she even goes beyond 72 hours as the VP pick. Interesting that there`s no mention of Biden`s flaws. That guy has been in the Senate for years and I`m sure he has more than 1 skeleton in his closet, all politicians do. But most media outlets don`t want to spoil Obama`s coronation so they aren`t bothering.
Am I the only one that read the article? This happened before McCain picked her. He knew about it.
Right because her 5 month old pregnant daughter can give birth to this AND the 4 month old son?
"So does that mean that Sarah Palin DID board 2 flights after her water had broken and then drove extra, past the hospital that could take care of her premie baby, and to a small town one?"
Water often breaks way before. You have a good amount of time to do whatever you like.
And yes Obama did say that
Well god damn.
God, I hate McCain, he cheated on his 1st wife with his second, is rude about the Clintons, calls his second wife a C-NT in public and has 0 policies. Just S-ITS on Obamas
OBAMA FOR PRESIDENT!!
Though it is a shame that if he is elected some racist douchebag will probably assassinate him...
*Bristol Palin = HOT
Good, I like how she keeps by her political view even in this time.
"Bristol is reportedly five months pregnant and would be due to give birth in late December."
That would make the DailyKos story fake considering the baby isn`t that old so it would be hard for the daughter to get pregnant twice.
"This shouldn`t be part of our politics. It has no relevance to Governor Palin`s performance as a governor, or her potential performance as a vice-president."
Kudos Barack, Kudos
