The Elephant in the room wasn't
Bristol being pregnant, but that she
was Sarah Palin's daughter, pregnant.
Sarah Palin who is suppose to be the
answer for McCain to the direct right
wing Republicans. The Stepford Wife
Christian woman of the Republican party.
She might be Christian, but she is no direct
right of the party. She is running fast and furious
down the center isle here.
No one is really condemning Bristol. And the
fact she is keeping the baby is no surprise to
anyone. Even if she had thoughts, which I doubt
she did, her parents would never let her have an
abortion. So keeping the baby is no duh.
But some of the Republican who are direct right
wing. What are they thinking? After all, they have
to question where was her mother when this was
going. Was she at home? Was she running around
Alaska as Governor? Also wasn't this about the same
time that Sarah was having her own?
But anyway, what is rocking the boat is why, why didn't
a professed right wing Christian mother, have a better
handle on her talks with her daughter. That is the real
big elephant in the room.
The other question they got to be asking is what does this
do for the just say no to sex programs? What does it do to
the contract with parents, of no sex? All these things that
were done to lower teen pregnancy? And she is going to
marry her sweetheart. When, they have had 4 months to do
this. Or is this one of those things, that you can get married
anytime after the pregnancy... or even birth of the child? Must
be the new thing... as it happens in happens in a heck of a lot
of them... even mine. It must be the times.
But having a Vice President ... who has a pregnant teen
who is not married, has got to sit in the craw of those right wing
Republicans that McCain was trying to win with this Christian,
direct right wing, woman he chose.
And now they are talking about having Bristol's boyfriend Levi,
at the convention, as a stand tall, with family... I don't know
about you... and I don't really think of myself as a prude...
but isn't that kind of like flaunting? Isn't this kind
of like "look at here, we have a teen girl pregnant and her boyfriend..so
what is the big deal? To me, the big deal is ...it is bad taste.
And surely not someone who I will vote for.. And surely the DIRECT
RIGHT WING REPUBLICANS of past are spinning in their graves. It
seems to me, Mr. McCain is thumbing his nose at the public.
