Looks like McCain's legal team decided it was time to vet properly...NOW. You couldn't make this stuff up if you tried.

YouTube - Mitchell: GOP Lawyers in Alaska for "Deeper Vet"

Meanwhile, his top policy advisor won't answer whether McCain was informed about Bristol, even though yesterday they said that he was.

Quote:
Asked if the campaign knew about the pregnancy at the time of Palin's selection, Holtz-Eakin said, "As I said, what I think we ought to do is recognize that the governor was completely vetted by the campaign. Senator McCain has complete confidence in her as a running mate and as a future vice president of the United States, and the particulars of the family life of the Palins is really something that's best left to them."
Maybe that legal team should have gone up to Anchorage like a month ago...

I was baffled at the idea of staunch right wingers feeling the need to throw her under the bus or forgive anything; I don't see how the mother is responsible; if she had directly caused the unprotected sex it would be a different issue.

It's always good to finish fully vetting a candidate 2 days before he or she officially becomes the nominee of the party.

Conservative Christians are a funny bunch.

Was it a calculated political ploy
Quote:
“In the 32-year history of Focus on the Family, we have offered prayer, counseling and resource assistance to tens of thousands of parents and children in the same situation the Palins are now facing. We have always encouraged the parents to love and support their children and always advised the girls to see their pregnancies through, even though there will of course be challenges along the way. That is what the Palins are doing, and they should be commended once again for not just talking about their pro-life and pro-family values, but living them out even in the midst of trying circumstances.

“Being a Christian does not mean you’re perfect. Nor does it mean your children are perfect. But it does mean there is forgiveness and restoration when we confess our imperfections to the Lord. I’ve been the beneficiary of that forgiveness and restoration in my own life countless times, as I’m sure the Palins have.

“The media are already trying to spin this as evidence Gov. Palin is a ‘hypocrite,’ but all it really means is that she and her family are human. They are in my prayers and those of millions of Americans.”
Political Punch

If it was, no one's going to be impressed except the far right-wing. They would've voted for McCain, anyway.

You gotta love Dobby. You get a free pass on everything as long as you're not gay, a Democrat, anti-war, pro-choice, or anything other than a Conservative Christian. You're really drawing 'em in with the love of Christ, there James!

may not be true

'There are reports, that there are GOP Attorneys up there."

The fact is, regardless of what you will hear over the next few days, Bristol's pregnancy is not a legitimate political issue. Sarah Palin is a longterm member of a group called Feminists for Life, which is not opposed to birth control. So you probably can't tag her for consigning young people to unwanted pregnancies.

You can argue that it was hamhanded of the McCain campaign—they had to have known, right?—to somehow let this drop just a few days after the announcement. Pregnancy does show, and it does have a ticking clock. The story was going to come out eventually.

As for the idea — sure to be floated—that the avowedly anti-abortion Palin may have pressured her poor daughter to ruin her life by carrying an unwanted baby to term, I wouldn't bet on it. The Palin family seems to share the same pro-life values going back at least as far back as anyone here can remember, and it wouldn't be at all surprising if Bristol wore those values, however imperfectly, as her own. At least, that's what the town thinks. And Wasilla, above all, is pretty sensible.

a little more light on the subject

In Wasilla, Pregnancy Was No Secret - TIME

Women and PUMAs will have a choice this election,

they can vote for a ticket that includes a:

Feminist. ( Sarah Palin is a longterm member of a group called Feminists for Life )

or a ticket that many believe sexism kept the most qualified and best candidate off the entire ticket.

One word: SPIN

Obama was damned if he did & damned if he didn't, no?

Identity politics is a big turn off, it's a pity that both parties are playing that game, when your only voting for rich white men it levels the playing field.

No,

He would be in the mid to high 50s
and this election would be over.

with Ohio, W V, Florida the electoral college would be a lock.

I see you're quite the fan of hyperbole.

Of course it couldn't have been

that Obama ran the better campaign
and struck more of a chord with the voters, could it?

Nah, couldn't be.

Once again

You've nailed it, deep,
