blank'/> Liberally Lean From The Land Of Dairy Queen: Uh, Oh

9.01.2008

Uh, Oh

And Fox News reported a second ago that McCain knew about this before he chose her as a running mate. Not sure I believe that. But to Barack's credit, he said this topic was "off limits." Edit: Upon further reflection, this is really puzzling. Why in the world would McCain take on this problem if he didn't have to? (Assuming he knew, which I'm stil not convinced about.) And, as I read somewhere else, why would Palin accept the VP nomination when she knew it would cause so much scrutiny of her young daughter?

OMG, who ever heard of a 17 year old kid getting pregnant in America?!


Also, you cannot be dumb/naive enough to think that pregancy was not the VERY first thing Palin made McCain aware of when they spoke.

Barry's respect stock just took an 8% dive for thinking there was any reason to doubt McCain knew about that girls pregnancy when he chose Palin for VP.
Not unovercome-able but, quite a hit for guy generally easy to respect even when you disagree with him.
Stay tuned.
November is a relatively long ways away. There's no telling what other kind of craziness he may come up with.
I know the national media is going to be going beserk now that it is all over for them and their boy.

More proof abstinence-only sex education is a failure. Isn't Palin anti-contraceptive too? What an inexperienced hypocrite.

I'll bet she steps down....probably as early as tomorrow....things are getting really hot, multiple issues, no decent vetting, and we've only seen the tip of the iceberg......McCain/Palin = FAIL. So old John's gonna ask for a "do-over".

How does having a pregnant teenage daughter make her a hypocrite? The daughter's failure to listen does not make the mother hypocritical.

Did Obama not say that he would kill the fetus if his daughter ever got pregnant? He did not want her to be punished. The Bible is very clear on what is to be done if an unmarried woman gets pregnant. Killing the fetus is not an option in God's law. You Democrates and your media are going to have fun with this one.

That is the cutest little girl in the red dress. Bet she grows up to be a VP too!! What a determined look she has.

Just heard on the national news that the girl would marry the father of the child. This is the choice of the families involved. Key word: CHOICE - if Palin is using this pregnancy of her daughter's for political reasons, I will find that abominable. How embarrasing it must be for this young girl to have her pregnancy announced to the entire world.

There will be difficult times ahead for Sarah Palin - handling this, plus the rigors of campaigning. A girl this young being pregnant needs her mother more than any other person in the world to help her cope with the upcoming responsibilities.

I truly wish them all well.

What difference does it make ?
The fact that her 17 year is pregnant only makes her as normal as the family next door to you.

some have said the son was actually the daughters...where are the pregnancy pics while in office???

Oh but the conservatives don't believe they are like the family next door.

Obama best not say anything since his mammy was 18 and unmarried when she gave birth to his sorry butt!

Ok where is Word Biles twist to this ??? Let me guess !!!! This was planned by the Democrates to make Republicans look bad. Yep ... Thats it ... we found a young democrat to "Put the meat too her".

I cant wait till he gets home from managing the local D.Q. I bet he takes it out on the little kids that work there.

3:35PM - "How does having a pregnant teenage daughter make her a hypocrite?"

Sorry you're so dense. While Sarah was publicly spouting all that conservative "family values" bullshiate, and being the "Governor of Alaska", she was not spending enough time with her own family.

I would have been more impressed with Sarah if she were holding her own four-month old son, instead of passing him off to her pregnant 17 year old, when she was announced as the Republican VP nomination. It screamed out "politics first, family second", to me.....more hypocracy.

I really feel sorry for Bristol.

4:45 - Why would you make a statement like that?
First of all, Obama said the topic of Palin's pregnant daughter was off-limits.
But more importantly, why would you say that Obama's mother was not married when she had him? That is such an easy thing to check out as true or false, and it is absolutely false. She was married to Obama Sr. when Obama was born, although the marriage didn't last but a couple of years and Barack only met his Dad, after his parents split, one time, when he was 10.

You are one of the many people that spread lies about Obama all the time on the Internet & assume people will just believe you. Unfortunately, many do believe you, but that's a different issue.

Liar!

She's pro contraception.

No one is foolish enough to believe the liberal blog 'rumors' about Palins son actually being her daughters- and if you do try working the math out on that one goober.

Anyway two can play this silly game: Where's the big giant pregnant pics of the daughter?

2:50 says,"More proof abstinence-only sex education is a failure..."

Imbicile, what do you know about that childs education? Act like you have half a brain and an ounce of honesty before you post here.

Because to post here you must be a genius or above and have at least 2ounces of honesty.

For real, it's a rule.

Well, Sarah's now "lawyering up" over her corruption probe. Do we really need such a mess, people?

Quit fooling yourselves, you neocon idjits.

Out on a limb said...

You have respect for Hussein because he said that topic was "off limits"?........really?


I'm going to go out on a limb and say I think this will actually help McCain. If McCain is going to bring in 98% of the right leaning voters.....a beautiful woman with a strumpet for a daughter will only bring in more wrong leaning voters.

He needs to appear as liberal as possible now.....he's the lesser of two idiots.....Hussein has no chance.

I can't believe she took on a 24x7 job (at least while campaigning) with a 4 month old special needs child. Is she really family oriented besides having them?

Anonymous said...

The most foreign policy experience she has is living close to Russia. Wow! She's got my vote! Oh, and she's hot! And she loves guns, and she can shoot and butcher a moose. And she has a pregnant, unmarried 17 year old daughter, just like all us other Americans have. What more could we want, people?

I hope the likes of jarhead, wordbyle and Anobiter really understand the implications of their stupidity.

Gawd I love the Wise County point of view. Even those who are critical of the democraits.

There is not a person on this earth that can criticize the kid without being a total hypocrit. Can you imagine how many underage relationships exist in all of our lineages? Up until about a couple hundred years ago, it was basically necessary because of life spans and disease to kids to have kids. None of us would be here if not for 17 year olds, and younger, having kids.

To Conservatives, teen pregnancy is only bad if the girl is black. If she's white, it's fine. Watch the movie Juno as proof.

What does any of this pregnancy business have to do with the real issues that concern the American people? Ok, ok, abortion IS an issue, but just one.

Does anybody out there feel Karl Rove lurking about in this?

this is a family problem and should be left up tp the family to deal with not the press or osama to use for thier own gains i think that sarah will be a fine v.p. for the united states shes as common as they come and she is a true american who cares for family and country unlike osama

Anonymous said...

8:41 - we will have to wait and see how caring she is toward her family with the demands that the Vice Presidency puts on her if she attains it - gone all the time from home - something will suffer - my bet is that it will be her family.

Hope not.

Jarhead said...

""I have said before and I will repeat again: People's families are off limits," Obama said. "And people's children are especially off-limits. This shouldn't be part of our politics. It has no relevance to Gov. Palin's performance as a governor or her potential performance as a vice president. So I would strongly urge people to back off these kinds of stories. You know my mother had me when she was 18 and how a family deals with issues and teenage children, that shouldn’t be a topic of our politics." ~ Barack Obama

Your one and only God is calling you to back off, liberals! Do what he says or suffer the pains of your own personal Hell: REPEAL OF THE 22ND AMENDMENT!!!

You can expect heavy pressure from GOP Leaders (those seated on the rightside of Jesus)to convice Palin to step aside for the good of the country.

Palin won't be sleeping tonight or tomorrow night, this is a real mess!

Hopefully the daughter can hide out in Alaska or at one of McCain's seven houses. Heck, I'm sure McCain's first wife/family would take her in.

6:16 - I do have respect for Obama for saying that the families, particularly the kids, of the candidates should be off-limits for the press. He refused to say anything else on that subject.

I agree with him & respect him for it.

But there are many people out there that think anything is fair game once you've stepped on the presidential stage. So I don't have much hope that the daughter will be left alone. As a mother, I would not have taken the position McCain offered, for that reason alone.

Poor daughter.

Her situation is hard enough for a 17 year old, without throwing her on a national stage. She didn't ask to be put into the glare of public life; although her mother did, which keeps bothering me.

You mean the Republicans might have a few "scruples" (like almost every normal household)? Geeeeze... I don't think this itty bitty issue holds a candle to what the Democratic President Clinton did as a GROWN man in office. Get off it.

Good question, 6:22.

Anonymous said...

How does anyone compare Clinton having consensual sex with an adult with this 17 year old girl being pregnant?

The real point is that the girl apparently failed the "abstinence" test. Might she have avoided the pregnancy if she had better sex education and had access to pregnancy prevention? Or did she just want to start a family at an early age?

In any case, I think her mother is woefully under qualified for the Vice Presidency.

Anonymous said...

9:46---5 years old have access to pregnancy prevention, they're called condoms and their sold at convenience stores. i also believe that you can have the best sex education but none of it means anything if you dont listen. Being 17 and pregnant is not all that uncommon these days, just go up to the high school and sit in the hallways. i guarantee you by january there will be atleast 3 or 4 girls who are pregnant or were pregnant and they got it taken care of, which i am all for.

The world is too wrapped up in the sin of sex, especially in teenagers. Most of us did it as teens. We also did other things that we now don't want our children to do. Once a human reaches sexual maturity, it is abnormal for them not to become sexually active. We are the only member of the animal kingdom that is forbidden from having sex when we are biologically ready. In the last one hundred years we have moved the age of marriage so that marriage of teens is frowned upon. What in the hell do you expect them to do. What did you do when you got the urge?

Churches preach that any sex between unmarrieds is sin but that teaching is unsuported by what is written in the laws passed down to Moses. Yes, not with your neighbor's wife, but nothing in the good book teaches that sex between unmarried, unrelated, uncommitted sexually mature people of the opposite six is a sin. It certainly does not prohibit a 17 year old girl from having sex nor does it say that she has sinned. What it does say is that if she gets pregnant then she is to marry the father of the child. I think that is what this young woman intends to do. She has not broken the law given to the earthly ancestors of Jesus. She may have broken the laws of Constantine but he doesn't out trump Jesus. So leave her alone.

What does this child being pregnant have to do with the issues that Americans are concerned about?

It is a private family matter and should be kept there.

Sheesh!

There is NO WAY the son can be the daughter's you CAN NOT carry 2 babies in 9 months unless they are twins.

I don't understand why society can not leave this girl alone. I am not saying it is right to be pregnant at 17, but she does deserve some privacy.

Anonymous said...

12:03 - your first sentence makes a lot of sense. Sex rules everything, when we really take an intense look at it....even rules lots of stuff in the church. Aren't we all impressed by the good looking preacher and his wife, the driving music (with occasional sexual overtones), the political candidates we vote for, (ex beauty queens, etc.),- to the stupid commercials for everything from laxatives to blood monitoring machines.

Heck, Bridgeport even had the sexy Dallas cheerleaders to open the new doctor's hospital.

Rah, rah, rah!

Obama has two kids, oh crap your right, I forgot they could both pregnant with OBAMAS children after video evidence surfaced on youtube he provided them with crack and maddog 20/20 and sold them on the street for votes and no one would care- he'd get a pass.
