It just came down the wire that Sarah Palin's 17 year old daughter is 5 months pregnant.

Should this affect her becoming McCain's VP?

In a fair world the answer would be no.
Personal business is just that, Personal.
But this is not a fair world.
Especially for a person that literally opened her life up for the world to dig though. Mrs. Palin does not have a personal life anymore. So in my opinion her daughter's underage pregnancy is fair game. Especially for someone that preaches abstinence, thinks sex education is a bad idea and last but not least.... Christian Family morals.

If a candidate can get called on the carpet for getting a $400 haircut, or wearing $400 shoes, something their pastor said or even not knowing how many houses they own, then their kid's underage pregnancy should be admissible.

How can anyone tell someone else to teach their kids abstinence when their own kid is pregnant at 17?

Now, the word on the street is that the girl and her baby daddy are going to get married. How long do you think that is going to last?

Married at 17? Is that good family morals?

And to top it off this woman is getting praised for not letting her daughter have an abortion?

Me personally, I think that abortion is the woman's choice. I don't approve of it, but I have no right to tell a woman what to do with her body. If she feels that an abortion is her only option, then the choice she makes is between her, the father(if he is around) and God. It has nothing to do with Government or me.

But a 17 year old girl that has not finished High School?

If this were Obama's underage daughter, then the people that are praising little Miss Palin and her mother,would be asking (loudly)how can Obama be ready to lead this country, if he cannot lead his own household?

And this woman is saying how proud she is of her daughter, for having sex without protection in a state that leads the rest of the country in cases of teen age cluemedia?

Come on now Mrs. Palin!!!

You expect us to believe that you are proud of your 17 year old daughter getting pregnant out of wed-lock?

You are supposed to be the "perfect beauty queen mother", and yet you did not know that Little Miss Thang was pregnant until she was 5 months along? How can I expect you to be able to tell me what is going on in Russia, when you don't know what your daughter is doing in her bedroom, in your house?

How can we expect you to be able to set an example to the rest of the world when your own Kids don't listen to you?

These are a few questions I would be asking if I was in Obama's camp.

But as you know I am not in his camp.

I have just seen on CNN where his O-ness said that a candidates family was off limits.

When is this cat going to learn?

Nothing is off limits in a street fight, and this is exactly what this is, a down and dirty, ball's kicking, throwing dirt in the eyes, biting, hitting with 40 ounce bottle, street fight.

Win at all costs.

Is that not the American way?

You are CUTTING UP Dirty Red! I really enjoyed your own "relentless social commentary" about this situation. You are absolutely right!

If Bristol was off-limits, then I would not have blogged about her. But unfortunately, she isn't. Plus, this is a great comeuppance for the Republican party. They need to see how being vilified in the media feels.


I'm still an Independent though. I just have a Democratic skew because I recently left the party. :)

Listen, you are dead on. When "Juno" had her baby everyone thought it was cute as fuck. When a poor, inner city girl gets knocked up its "oh, whats wrong with those people, no values, now we have to take care of another bastard child".

"Juno" is a city in Alaska, isn't it?

Dirty Red great article. My question is Why should Sarah Palin’s 17-year-old daughter be “off-limits” and deserves some privacy? Is it because shes the daughter of a white right-wing Governor? Do that make her off limit. I don't think so. And, anyway her mother is the one that put her on front street.

John McCain and Sarah Palin support “abstinence-only” sex education, so the fact that her unmarried daughter got pregnant is unfortunately but, how the far right have chosen to respond. Is true characteristics of the Republican Party.

Rather than condemn Bristol for “living in sin”, they commend her for not getting an abortion. Like David said let that had been a black unwed teenager from the inner city, these same far righter s would denounce it as evidence that our society is crumbling apart. You know they would have blame HIP-HOP.

If Obama publicly made statements about Palin's daughter, fix news would turn her into some kind of martyr. He would definitely lose a large percentage of the female vote, which means he would lose the election.

This is the definition of a double standard. If one of Barrack's daughters were seventeen and pregnant, you best believe Fix news would not show his family the same courtesy that Plain's family is receiving.
