Kathy Shaidle is absolutely, bang dead-on with this one:
... [Briston Palin getting pregnant at 17] makes the Palins look really really tacky and low class.
We should want people better than "tacky and low class" in the White House. I left Hamilton to get away from tacky, low class people and their pregnant teenagers. Now they're all over my damn television.
We criticized Bill Clinton for helping kids think "oral sex wasn't real sex." But we're all cool with this? Kids will say, "So? Whatsername's pregnant."
When it's "one of us" we're all suddenly "compassionate" and "forgiving" and "oh but that's different"?
It is really funny seeing social conservatives turning themselves inside out to excuse/explain this because now it is someone on "our" side.
Sometimes, being a shrieky, hateful harpy can be handy -- it gives you the freedom to despise everyone equally and consistently. Go figure.
ON THE OTHER HAND, SUZANNE is once again being as stupid as a bag of cat litter. I'm not even going to bother eviscerating that bit of idiocy -- it's retardedness should be howlingly self-evident.
