From one mother to another…

10 Sep

Sarah Palin,

I can’t get over how you claim to be such a great mother yet you do things that a mother who really respected her kids never would do.

If I had a special needs infant, the last thing I would do is parade him around like a poster boy for family values. Putting your child in the spotlight in this way is crude. It doesn’t take his needs into account at all — it is simply a tool for your own gain.

Getting into a truck without putting your child in a car seat is also a no-no. I mean, you’d think that after having 4 kids you’d know the safety laws by now. Or, maybe you think you’re above the law?

Oh, and your abstinence training so obviously worked. At least you didn’t kick your daughter out of the house, but wouldn’t it have been better to teach her about safe and protected sex? I mean, can you imagine if her partner had had an STD? Condoms would not only have prevented her pregnancy (and becoming a target for the media, since, once again, you have placed your family in the spotlight) but they would also have ensured that whatever she was doing was safe. If you spent more time reading and less time lobbying for earmarked funds and hunting, you might realize that AIDS is a disease that is currently hitting the teenage population hard.

From one mother to another, I think you really need to walk the walk first before touting that you are for family values.

(I usually don’t post about political things in this blog overtly, but I feel that I have to. If McCain wins, there is a real chance that Palin will become President. The thought of this is enough for me to seriously consider moving to another country. The media is not really painting a realistic portrait of McCain’s running mate, mostly because it is owned by 4 major conservative-leaning corporations. The only way to really get the word out about the potential disaster that will happen if McCain and Co. wins is for each and every one of us to start openly expressing our views and exposing the half-truths and cover-ups that have come out as fact since the RNC.)

    Hear, hear! I couldn’t have said it better. It makes my skin crawl that she parades her own baby around seeking public approval for not aborting him. McCain used to bill himself a centrist, his choice of VP demonstrates that he has totally sold out to the right wing of his party.

    The thought of Sarah Palin becoming president definitely terrifies me….

    The nomination of Palin is obviously a desperate bid to the religious right, which alone succeeded in electing Bush, and the decision seems designed to make her a lightning rod for personality issues that have nothing to do with the real issues in this election. Take virtually any major issue–the war, health care, immigration, the economy, unemployment, the struggling middle class, fuel costs, energy crisis, global warming–and the Bush-McCain record of the last eight years is horrendous. McCain knows this, so his campaign has done everything it can to deflect attention from it, and Palin is their biggest distraction.

    There’s no better example than the McCain campaign’s absurd distortion of Obama’s comment about stale economic ideas, that lipstick on a pig is still a pig, which McCain now suggests was a dig at Palin (fittting though it is, he’s obviously wrong), who even made her own lipstick joke at the RNC. As Obama says, these people know how to run campaigns but they don’t know how to run a country.

    If you are going to talk the talk, you had better practice what you preach. I heard that bookies have been saying that she might be dropped from the ticket and have taken bets on it. The National Enquirer ran a story on her that accused her of cheating on her husband. Okay, they aren’t a “news” source but many of their stories turn out to have several elements of truth in them.

    And numerous new stories have come out about her going after her now ex-brother-in-law. She is not the picture of family values. She makes Brittany Spears look good. At least she supposedly has a legit medical problem causing her problems.
