Stop Questioning Palin

Okay, I’m confused. Sarah Palin has been selected by John McCain to be his Vice President candidate. Until McCain picked her, 90% of this nation never heard of her. No one knew her name — for the most part — outside of Alaska. Yet, McCain’s campaign engine has “declared heatedly it was time to stop questioning her background.”1

Are they kidding?

The woman is running for Vice President of the United States of America. I think she needs to answer some questions. Like, how is she going to do in energy meetings when her husband works for an oil company? According to “Tucker Eskew, a senior McCain advisor”2 she is “someone with both hands on the steering wheet of America’s energy economy.”3 Probably because she sleeps with someone who works for an OIL COMPANY.

The campaign is trying to play the sex card because the media is just out to “destroy the first female Republican nominee.”4 When Hillary tried to play the sex card, the media and the GOP just made fun of her, but I guess you can play it when the female is a Republican and it is okay. If she isn’t tough enough to answer questions now before she’s even officially nominated as Vice President, how the hell is she ever going to be tough enough to be Vice President?

And, by not asking her questions, by not looking into her background, is the GOP just wanting us to accept four more years of secrecy and lies? Are we as a nation supposed to just lie there and blindly agree with our government? Haven’t we had enough of that?

And, another thing, I don’t think people should have us ignore Palin’s inexperience and then knock Obama’s. That’s being a hypocrite. And, if you’re wondering, Yes, I’m talking directly to you, Fred Thompson. (But, if you’re reading this, I loved you on Law & Order.)

God Bless

I’ve looked far and wide and all I see are hypocrites…

Sarah Palin’s seventeen year old daughter is pregnant. Now I know that Obama states that Palin’s family is off-limits, but I disagree. Palin supports abstinence education, hmmm, how’s that working out for you, Sarah? The Palin’s are going to compound the issue by having their 17 year old daughter marry the father of the baby. Well, that sounds like a match made in Heaven.

What really burns my butt on this is the wrong-wing Christians who are rallying behind Palin. Oh, this just shows she’s human. This can happen to any family. Blah, blah, blah. This is BS because you and I both know if the shoe was on the other foot and it was a Democrat’s child, they would be all over it like white on rice. This, also burns my butt because this is a clearcut example of how abstinence education DOESN’T work.

I’m sorry this seventeen year old girl is going through a pregnancy the whole world knows about. I can only imagine how thrilled she must be that her mother’s running for VP, so this is no longer a private family matter. I wonder if she even loves the guy she now has to marry to help her mother save face?

And, on top of all this, I have to hear from my mom that: 1) Palin should resign, so she can take care of her family and 2) if she wasn’t governor, her daughter wouldn’t be pregnant out of wedlock. Like somehow working mothers are to blame when their children are pregnant out of wedlock and the fact that my mom was a stay at home mom is the only reason I didn’t end up being a pregnant teenager. (Trust me, Mom, that had nothing to do with it.)

God Bless
