During the past several days, the liberals, through the Daily Kos blog and others have really dipped down into the mud regarding Governor Sarah Palin. They involved her family. Had they gone after her husband, fine. He’s a big boy and can take it. But their going after the Palin’s 17 year old daughter smacks of pedophilia.
First the Daily Kos made the accusation that the Palin’s latest addition to their family was not actually their child, but rather the child of their 17 year old daughter. They claimed that Governor Palin didn’t look pregnant, but that their daughter seemed to have a “baby bump” back in March. Why are they looking at a 17 year old girl? Isn’t a child off limits to adults?
Governor Palin delivered a baby boy back in April of this year. The baby was born with Down Syndrome. Which led to Alan Colmes, of Hannity and Colmes fame, to ask the question on his blog if the baby being born with Down Syndrome might not be the fault of the mother, the Governor, because she may not have taken the proper pre-natal care.
Then came the announcement from Governor Palin to stop the salacious talk of their daughter, that she was pregnant, planned to keep the baby and marry the father. This became the talk on the first day of the convention by the press. They sent an army of “reporters” to Alaska to check on this, discover who the father is and while at it, take a look at the investigation into what the press now calls “troopergate” bringing up memories of Bill Clinton using Arkansas troopers to procure women for himself.
The double standard was employed by Senator Barack Hussein Obama when he brought up the news of teenage pregnancy of Governor Palin by saying that families should be off limits, but then talked about his family, more specifically his mother having had him at the age of 18. The liberal media was fawning all over Obama after these comments. By the way, Obama also said that nobody in his campaign had anything to do with this story or the comments made by the blogs. I don't believe it. Nobody asked where it came from. He offered it. This leads me to believe that he was, or his staff was involved.
Naturally, the talk in the media turned to sex education in the schools and how Governor Palin is against it, and how abstinence obviously doesn’t work. Teenage pregnancy has increased since schools started teaching sex education.
This should have been a private matter within the Palin family. They should have been provided the opportunity to bring this out on their own terms. After all, we went through 8 years of the Clinton’s not permitting any talk of their daughter Chelsea including her use of drugs as she got into her late teens. This privacy wasn’t afforded the Bush twins when George Bush became President. Remember the liberals going after them with their drinking?
The liberals, through the blogs and Alan Colmes didn’t just dip their toes into the muck and mire that they accuse Republicans of all of the time. They plunged right in and made themselves look like pedophiles examining the body of a 17 year old girl.
I welcome your comments.
