I now know what Barack Obama was thinking when he said he wouldn’t want his daughters “punished with a baby” if they “ma[d]e a mistake” and had premarital sex.
How sad that he surely had his own tribe, liberals, in mind, who sure know how to mete punishment with vicious aplomb in such case.
Thanks to a soap opera script on Daily Kos that Sarah Palin faked her pregnancy with now four-month-old son Trig to cover for his real mother, her 17-year-old daughter Bristol, the Palin family was forced to announce today that unmarried Bristol is five months pregnant.
The announcement was wonderful, in sharp contrast to Obama’s thought of his own grandchild who might be conceived in a similar situation…
Our beautiful daughter Bristol came to us with news that as parents we knew would make her grow up faster than we had ever planned. We’re proud of Bristol’s decision to have her baby and even prouder to become grandparents. As Bristol faces the responsibilities of adulthood, she knows she has our unconditional love and support.
Bristol and the young man she will marry are going to realize very quickly the difficulties of raising a child, which is why they will have the love and support of our entire family.
But the Left wants to make sure any girl in a similar situation aborts. Alternet has already got the long knives out, counting the days until Palin is off the McCain ticket and his judgment in selecting her:
… [T]here are legitimate larger questions about what the surprise choice of Palin as McCain’s running mate reveals about the GOP presidential candidate’s judgment and temperament.
The facts surrounding the Palin family’s pregnancies… suggest the AK governor will at the very least have many distractions while she is campaigning this fall, to say nothing of her fitness to become commander-in-chief.
Pregnancies, as in plural. The Left also thinks Palin should have aborted the baby. Until today, it was positive it wasn’t hers, a little boy with Down syndrome.
Both babies apparently render Palin unfit for national office.
Speaking of the latter, liberals could go no lower than Alan Colmes did Saturday, with a post he has been shamed into removing after it caused an uproar. But the Internet makes it hard to permanently remove anything. Here ’tis (click to enlarge):
Colmes did not apologize for what he said, just for not being clear enough about what he said. No, he blamed conservatives:
Liberals clearly drive mothers to abort. They cannot fathom birthing untimely or imperfect babies.
