It’s been acknowledged by the McCain/Palin campaign that Sarah Palin’s 17 year old daughter Bristol is pregnant out of wedlock. Now personally, it’s none of my affair. Bristol wasn’t elected to or is running for office, but it does reflect on the family values John McCain and Sarah Palin run on.
I said something in an earlier blog about risky behavior on McCain’s part. I guess it ran down into the family of the V.P. pick. And I’m going to have a talk with Bristol’s science teacher who was supposed to be teaching sex education to the high schooler. I know, evangelicals believe it’s the family responsibility to teach abstinence. I guess hormones won out though with a shotgun wedding in the offing.
I have to continue to think of how selfish/deluded Palin is to put her family and Alaskans by proxy through the embarrassment and grinder of national politics. More idiocy comes out every day. A simple example, from a 2006 questionnaire when running for governor, Palin was asked:
Q: Are you offended by the phrase “Under God” in the Pledge of Allegiance? Why or why not?
PALIN: Not on your life. If it was good enough for the founding fathers, its good enough for me and I’ll fight in defense of our Pledge of Allegiance.
Well, the Pledge of Allegiance was written in 1892 and wasn’t the official pledge until 1942. The “Under God” was added in 1954. That’s like 178 years after the founding fathers weighed in and only 10 years before Sarah Palin was born. Who are YOUR founding fathers?
