the piece you posted is just a thinly disguised bit of creative writing
with enough tid bits thrown in to lead some people to believe it is legit.

Democratic presidential nominee Barack Obama, campaigning today in Monroe, Michigan, said Palin's children should be ``off limits'' and cited his own mother, who gave birth to Obama when she was 18.

``This shouldn't be part of our politics, it has no relevance to Governor Palin's performance as a governor or her potential performance as a vice president, and so I would strongly urge people to back off these kinds of stories,'' Obama told reporters.

Obama also said his campaign wasn't involved in spreading rumors that Bristol was Trig's mother.

``We don't go after people's families,'' Obama said. ``If I ever thought that there was somebody in my campaign that was involved in something like that, they'd be fired.''

That poor child's pregnancy is clearly part of the homosexual agenda.



Isn't it? Don't we blame them for everything?

It's just this kind of utter nonsense that worries me. There is NOTHING in this short speech stating she "hates America" - where the hell do you get that from??? If anything the fact that a Republican politely address the Independence party shows she is open minded and not a party cronie like 95% of Democrats and Republicans. Your playing into a dangerous game that some on the so called left have flung themselves...the more you nitpick this woman the worse it's going to get for Obama. The sad thing is Obama's smarter than that. Too bad many of his party are not. Smarten up, or you'll get the Republicans for another four years. Don't say I didn't warn you either.

Is it Freaky Friday? Did Sarah Palin take over her daughters body and get knocked up?

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



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!

'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
