Regarding Gov. Palin and Her Family

The broadcast media DISGUSTS me.

In fact, the word "disgusts" is not strong enough. My vocabulary isn't broad enough (although, for you LOTR fans out there, the language of Mordor might come close...)

Absolute hypocrites for the sake of political power.

At any rate, I need to pass along a GREAT link at a great blog, guest-written by one of my heroes; here are some snippets:
The news of Sarah Palin's 17 year old daughter didn't surprise me - it was me.
That is the reality of teen pregnancy that doesn't end in abortion when your family is in politics. People are gleeful, and people are mean. And the very people who accuse others of being hypocrites are often the biggest hypocrites themselves.
Check it out.

Dido on your comments. Those who are pointing their finger at Sarah's daughter should turn that finger around, and discover the things in their life that didn't play out the way they wanted it to. No one is perfect...and they need to move on to things that really matter...

Hear, Hear. When I saw that news report I was like "That's the worst they can dig up on her."

That didn't bother me as much as the multitude of comments from women who are totally bugged that she is not a SAHM. It bothers me that there is still this enormous divide between working and at-home mothers.

I also thought the liberal feminists were mean. They called her anti-woman. And I want to know how it is anti-woman to have children, be married, be a part of the PTA, support your pregnant daughter, and be in government. But I forgot, it is anti-woman to be a mother and wife. Silly me.

By the way, just found your blog and I really like it.
