Seeing that liberals love to attack someone's kid(s), especially on a day where all candidates have agreed to put aside campaining and attacking one another (well, expect for Biden of course, who has taken shots at McCain today, along with the liberal bloggers now attacking Palin and her daughter who is 17 years old and pregnant and plans to marry the father). Sure, she's a little young to have a child, but hey, it does show that Sarah Palin and her family are like everyone else's families, and that they're a real family that deal with such issues like most of us. But the thing that pisses me off the most is a lot of liberals who have always claimed to be compassionate people when in fact they're not! Most are not very tolerant either when it comes to a lot of the litle things in life. So, her daughter is having a baby, I'm very happy for them. You know that her daughter won't be collecting welfare like most teen moms would, so why should this bother anyone for a 17 year old (almost an adult) to have a baby? Yeah, liberals are a real piece of work alright. Bottom line is ALL the candidates children should be left out of attacks, unless their kid(s) is out compaigning for their parent and attacking the other candidate then off bets are off. McCain has stated that he would like to help the victims of this hurricane by turning the Republican convention into somewhat of a telethon for getting victims the help needed. But of course the liberals have attacked McCain on that claiming his idea of helping the victims by doing this that he's trying to win votes. You're damn if you do and damn if you don't it seems and ya just can't win with these people. Give me a break people, ya can't just continue on with a convention and act like nothing has happened. Why not try to help the victims down there that need it? You would think that with this hurricane that hit that some liberals who were so concerned at first with it wouldn't be on the attacks today against McCain and Palin. But hey, it truely shows the kind of person they are. How disgusting these people come off....

Well, I'm sure that her daughter thought that it would be best to go ahead and leak it since she's what, over 5 months pregnant? She may not be showing now, but it's only a matter of time...

So, she's pregnant... how many other thousand teenage girls are? Sigh.. what about the important issues like health care and Iraq and the Southern US right at the mo.. I just don't see what this lil girl who is just like any other little girl, being pregnant, has to do with her parent's ability to lead?

It won't benefit the republican vote. Staunch Republicans will be mortified...even if it has happened to there own. If anything it will show that Plain can't handle her children, so what makes anyone think she could handle the vice presidency?

I'm going to give her the benefit of the doubt because I have seen her family, and they all do look like a loving family when they came out in support of their mom. Just because your 17 year old child is pregnant does not mean it's automatic in assumming that some parents can't handle their children. For all we know she (Sarah Palin) can be a damn good mom. We really don't know how their children were raised, but I'm willing to bet that her and her husband have done a pretty good job in todays society.

I don't care that she is pregnant, but I think that it is a bunch of crap that she is getting support from the Christian groups etc.... yes, it proves that her family is no better than one of ours, but at the same time it is glamorizing it for young teens once again......

I personally think that Mccain has made a huge mistake choosing her as his veepee, but that is just my opinion....

Someone will have to drag my ass to the poll this year, because I don't personally care for either candidate as a whole...... sad to say, but at least I speak the truth...

Hey Straddle Honey...this isn't my personal opinion, I am just stating a fact about Staunch Republicans.

I'm a staunch conservative Republican and I'm not mortified over this news. Hell, I believe her to even be more conservative than McCain, and that's a good thing.

I just saw Michael Moore who is a very hard core liberal state on video that Hurricane Gustov is a good thing and there must be a God in heaven for this to happen today with the opening of the Republican convention. Gee, I didn't know the loss of lives from a hurricane could ever be a good thing. I know the guy hates Republicans, but that kind of thinking is very fucked up and dangerous.

Also, a commentator over at MSNBC stated that Palin (after her speech Friday in Dayton, Ohio giving credit to two women which were Ferraro and Hillary about cracking the glass ceiling for women and it's up to the voters to shatter that glass ceiling now for women) is nothing more than a cheerleader for McCain and the resy of us. Nice to see such ignorance still excist today. Is that what these people over at MSNBC still think of women calling women "cheerleaders"? These people are very much sexist in my opinion!

Im a liberal and i'm very compassionate. I dont think you should lump us all together as being uncompassionate. Personally, I dont give a rats ass if Palin's daughter is pregnant. Obama already came out today and said that the "family" should be left alone. He cant control the media or what some joe schmoe wants to say.

You're right. I'm usually careful about how I write my blogs, and I went back to read what I had stated and I did say that, and I apologize. I know not all liberals are like that, and I actually meant to cover my own ass with that, but it was overlooked when I was typing that part out. I do plan on correcting that right now.

Sarah Palin is an advocate of teen abstinence, which costs us millions of wasted federal $$$.
Last week, Obama was the first to call for financial contributions for hurricane relief
and volunteers to do whatever would be needed in Louisiana, Mississippi and Alabama.

Typical response from a hot headed intolerant liberal in regards to name calling.

Asnet, do you think it's fair for me to allow you to continue commenting on my blogs, along with the name calling when I do believe you have me blocked from commenting on any of yours? You can comment on my blogs, but as long as your civil. I'm not going to have such bad behavior like what you show in with the comments.

Hell, Obama can't even take care of his poverty stricken blood brother in Kenya,let alone take care of America. Sarah Palin is taking care of her own which I take as a positive sign. Certainly Palins approach is more compassionate than the approach of Obama I would think.

The fact that her teen daughter is pregnant is to me a sure sign that her "abstinance" policy is just not working out that well. Not in her family nor in most families with teenagers. That bothers me more than the fact that her daughter is pregnant. Her stances on abortion (against, even in case of rape or incest) , equal pay (against women getting equal pay for equal work) , sex education (against, believes in abstinance education only) and then there's the whole "trooper gate" issue. (fired a commander because he refused to fire her ex brother in law) So to me, the pregnant teen daughter is no where near as bad as her policies toward matters that actually "matter" to me.

As I have said on here before; I am not a liberal or a conservative, I’, a realist. It really does not bother me that her daughter is pregnant. What does bother me in politics is the double standard. The GOP is supposed to be the “moral” party where sex is concerned; straight sex, abstinence, etc. Let a democrat gets a BJ in the oval office and FOX news and all the republicans freak out. But the VP’s daughter being gay or the VP nominee being 17, single and pregnant and suddenly somehow it’s different. Why?

Same goes for the riots at the convention. When it happened and the democrat convention some years back it supposedly was a reflection of the public’s dissatisfaction with their policies and platform. But let it happen at the republican convention and they are radicals and criminals.

Here’s a thought; who believes either party is trying to get elected to run the nation for the betterment and benefit of the nation as a whole and the “average” American. Anyone who says they believe that then I have a bridge in Brooklyn for sale, CHEAP!

Interesting comment there, Bruce. I don't agree with it at all. What does Rush Limbaugh have to do with this? What, Americans can't feel free to share an opinion(s) if it's the same as Rush Limbaugh's in some cases? Do I critisize you watching CNN? Should I tell you to go suck some of their cocks over there? You may not like what I have to say, and you may call yourself a moderate (yeah, right), but some of the stuff that happened yesterday about what I stated in this blog are facts. Some of the other stuff in my blog are opinions of mine.

Same goes for the riots at the convention. When it happened and the democrat convention some years back

I don't recall this. What year was this suppose to be?

Let a democrat gets a BJ in the oval office and FOX news and all the republicans freak out

If you want to use freak out, then so be it. I don't think we totally freaked out about it. I mean, he did lie under oath and commit perjury. Whatever he does outside the oval office is one thing, but in the oval office, well, I have a problem with that! As for Fox news, say what you want about them, but I have found them to be so much fairer than MSNBC and CNN in many ways!

Although I feel teenage pregnancy is out of control in this country, Persoanlly I don't care whether she is pregnant ot not....although I do kind of wonder how Palin is going to keep pushing abstinance to all other teens now....But her being pregnant has no effect on the running of the country...and is actually no ones business.

I'm going to give her the benefit of the doubt because I have seen her family, and they all do look like a loving family when they came out in support of their mom.
Out of curiosity, Shawn ..what did you expectt them to come out looking like??.... People said Ted Bundy looked trust worthy.....Appearances mean nothing, especially if they are told exactly "how " to look. They were camera ready..
And NO I'm not comparing them to Bundy or saying anything bad about them.... It was just a comment.

I do however wonder, if Obama (or any candidate you weren't backing) had a 17 year old daughter who was pregnant, if you wouldn't have been one of the first to write a blog bringing it to attention and not being favorable about it. ..
Both candidates have good and bad in their corners..and you want to complain about the "liberals" doing so many things...I'm not a liberal, but aren't you being on the attack just as badly as any of them?

Damn, I hate election years!!

I knew someone was more than likely to ask that, but I'm a little surprised that it would be you, Trease. To answer your question, I think it was in very bad taste for the liberal bloggers to go and attack Palin and her daughter all day long yesterday (Monday). Sure, I'm going to voice my reaction opinion to it through a blog. If you want to call that attacking, go right ahead. I thought that it was in bad taste for all the candidates agreeing to not campaign and sling mud at one another, and to only have Biden not follow through with his word. I pointed that out, and yes, that was fact. I found it in poor taste for violent protesters which 250 were arrested for vandalizing everything around them. Gee, something like what you would see in a newspaper editoral. I don't think I really did any attacking. I stated some facts along with some opinions. Sure, my views aren't going to popular with everyone, but hey, that's how life is I guess.

I do however wonder, if Obama (or any candidate you weren't backing) had a 17 year old daughter who was pregnant, if you wouldn't have been one of the first to write a blog bringing it to attention and not being favorable about it

Please tell me you're not serious? I thought that you knew me better than that. No, I wouldn't have done that. I don't see what the big issue is with this anyway if that would have happened with Obama.

Out of curiosity, Shawn ..what did you expectt them to come out looking like??.... People said Ted Bundy looked trust worthy.....Appearances mean nothing, especially if they are told exactly "how " to look.

I have seen a lot of fakes out there, and some truly nice people. I can pretty much tell and have a pretty good sense about people. I do think the're a good family. Of course we don't know all details about all people in life, but I'm pretty sure I'm on target with this one and feel good about it.

Gee, something like what you would see in a newspaper editoral. I don't think I really did any attacking. I stated some facts along with some opinions.

I'm not really disagreeing with this.....I do feel the campaigning should have been completely on hold yesterday....regardless of who agreed or didn't. There were lives at stake and that needed to be dealt with beyond all else..
As for the protestors....when they became violent they should have been arrested. Those are not the issues I am speaking of..... Lately you have "seemingly" bunched all liberals together as a "they" categroy...not just people who differ in opinion from yours.
I realize you are passionate about this election,as many are, but as of late, it seems that anyone who disagrees with you is just wrong. They've suddenly just become a "liberal". Whether they are or not.

I knew someone was more than likely to ask that, but I'm a little surprised that it would be you, Trease.
Not real sure how to take that, so I'll just leave it alone.....
I'm not out to argue with you, Shawn. I'm not going to do that. I just stated my opinions from what I am reading.. the same as you have many times.

Now I'm just going to let Obama and McCain fight out this election...and I guess whoever is left standing after all the mud slinging is the one who will run our country... not whether one is more qualified or would honestly do a better job at it....that's just sad. Just MY opinion.

I'm sorry, Trease, I'm usually respectful of other peoples opinions until they attack me. When someone calls me stupid in a blog comment for my opinion, I do take that personally. As lumping someone as a liberal because they don't agree with me, well, I don't really do that either. When you read other peoples comments with opinions in them you pretty much know where they are as far as politics goes. With some people it's pretty obvious where they stand. Some people are actually proud to be called a liberal, others aren't. If they're proud of that then they should wear it like a badge, like I would with the conservative label.

Now now now..let's be fair...conservatives do it too. It's politics...and in that warped world...anything goes.


As for Palin's daughter being pregnant...who cares? There's many more thousands of 17yr old girls out there unwed and pregnant and they're not in the news. Oh yeah..that's right..Palin is a VP candidate.

Still....who cares? The daughter is not a VP pick.


Honestly....with everything else going on in the world, one would think the media and the politicians would have more to concern their time with than a teenager being pregnant.

I admit to watching a few episodes of Springer. Mainly out of curiosity as to why the show was so popular. I still don't get it....it's always the same thing..just different people. Where's the variety?


Still...I'd rather the candidates AND the media stay on the topic of what would be best for America. I know..that's a lot to ask for.

Yeah, I'm late as usual!

I thought it was ironic that the daughter of a proponent of "abstinence only" sex education would get pregnant before getting married.

However, one of the biggest drug dealers in my HS was the son of a Southern Baptist preacher.

What do they have in common? As another friend in HS stated, "Some of a preacher's smallest sermons are made at home."

So, Palin's message of abstinence made as much impact with her kid as the preacher's message did with his.

In a nutshell, even the kids of the best parents fuck up. It's reality. Who are we to judge? So, this should be a non-issue.

As for Troopergate? That will hurt Palin way more if there is any truth to it.

I too was put off when the media and others started focusing on Palin's Daughter. And it seemed such big news! I think it humanizes the family, brings them down to the level of the common man. For me, hearing that news didn't change my opinion of Palin or McCain for making that choice. Rather, my thought was, 'damn liberal media'! We are voting for the person, not the family. If they are trying to compare her mothering skills to her skills at being #2 in the nation, i think they are grasping at straws. Come to think of it, where's all the dirt on Biden? Why isn't the media shoving any of that in my face? The news coverage so far, beginning before the primaries has seemed like it has been 'The Barrack Obama Show'. I'm not kidding. I hear his name more times in a day in various news venues than anything else. It's not hard to see who the media supports.
