so i was listening to NPR this morning on the way to work and heard the big news about palin's 17 year old daughter being "about" 5 months pregnant, but "plans" to marry the father. (and of course with the rumor's that sarah's 4 month old, trig, being her daughter's baby as well...whew boy)
i don't want to say too much on the subject as i don't want to create too much hoopla on my blog, but i gotta say that even though i have been rooting for obama to win and stating that i will move out of this country if mccain wins the presidency...i honestly believed that it would be a close race, but due to so many circumstances that i could list out here by the hundreds, this hope for change wouldn't be enough and mccain would win in the end.
i think this might have been the biggest mistake of mccain's campaign and may actually push obama into the presidency. (we can only hope).
these right wing conservative republicans and evangelicals are NOT going to go for this.
suck it mccain. HA!
copied from a thread on metafilter :
Can someone explain why this might disqualify Palin for VP? Not being snarky (nor supportive, for that matter), I'd just like to know and I can't think of a good reason.
It doesn't. Being incompetent and possibly abusing her office disqualifies her for VP. This just points out that she's a goddamn hypocrite who wants the federal government to monitor other women's vaginas but already has surrogates feeding media cycles with rhetoric that it's outrageous- outrageous- for anyone to question the morals or motives of her own family life.
If anything, it raised yet another major question about McCain's judgment. GOP reps are now saying McCain knew of this, and yet for some reason he actually thought that this might not actually be an issue.
The man is losing his mind.
