KNOCKED UP IN JUNO...
Bloggers are going nuts about the possible 2nd families knocked up teen. First of all, teens are all basically retarded, let's all admit that here and now. I was an idiot, and most teens are stupid well into their 20's when they are no longer teens at all. Should parents of teens be exempt from ever running for political office? That would eliminate pretty much everyone. I mean Obama's girls may make the same stupid mistake in the future.
Scientists have studied the brains of the blatantly stupid and have discovered that most teens have frontal lobes that are not connected. That's the scientific facts folks. Teens have no sense of consequences until this is attached. So cut the girl some frontal lobe slack. Now seriously, don't go nuts with the "My teen is an angel sent from God and is SMART". Fine, I get that. I realize I am making a massive generalization, but I think you get my point. Really, must I hold your hands constantly?
2nd of all, many liberals are showing themselves to be more judgemental than Jerry Falwell at a gay bar regarding this subject. 3rd of all, the impregnated teen should NOT be encouraged to marry the little man penis that knocked her up. She should be encouraged to give the baby up for adoption. But its not my daughter and not my baby so its not my decision. Frankly this is family business and Barack Obama is being quite classy about the whole thing. I read this statement by him on Politico "I have said before and I will repeat again: People's families are off limits," Obama said. "And people's children are especially off-limits. This shouldn't be part of our politics. It has no relevance to Gov. Palin's performance as a governor or her potential performance as a vice president. So I would strongly urge people to back off these kinds of stories. You know my mother had me when she was 18 and how a family deals with issues and teenage children, that shouldn't be a topic of our politics." He gets my kudos.
While there will be those who will judge the "how it looks" aspect of the party who claims a monopoly on "family values", the reality is that the topic could have been avoided with a Romney pick. Having said that, Sarah is the pick and the lefties who are jumping all over this like Pat Roberson at a whore house are lame asses. This has nothing to do with being pro-life and even less to do with family values. It has every thing to do with stupid teenagers making stupid decisions and parents paying for their little darlings "indiscretions". Look at the Bush twins. Little floozies running around like little George's and the peeps loving it and plastering it in all sorts of papers.
There is an aspect of this story that does concern me. There is a problem with teen pregnancy in this nation. This certainly does not bode well for that. Teen pregnancy should never be glamorized like the Jamie Lynn Spears pregnancy was. Down playing is one thing and up playing is another. The teen should not be demonized by her mistake, but should also not be plastered on every paper. Send her to a condo in the Bahama's. A clear message should be sent. The message should state that this is not a cool thing even if your mom is running for the Vice Presidency.
For me, it looks like this is an all-American family with problems just like the rest of us. For some reason in this election people want the best of both worlds. A down to earth family that relates to the common man. But one who is perfect in every way. News flash: that family does not exist. I hate to be the bearer of bad news but that's the long and the short of it. So those of you who want to paint Sarah Palin as an unfit mother and an even worse VP candidate because her teen has a bun in the oven are hypocritical at best. The party of "don't judge" has now become the party of let's throw mama under the train. And for the republican folks who are showing your true colors of self-righteous haughtiness, you suck and will get yours. So all in all I think this is unfortunate and I hope the girl will make a better decision than that of getting married at the age of 16. Adoption is a better option IMO.
WOW. Who knew Republicans had teens that got knocked up? Surprise! We have families with flaws. The secret is out. Whew. Now let's get real people.
