She has a daughter who became pregnant at 17 and now has a baby at 18. Whatís dysfunctional about that?
That she didnít secretly get an abortion? Because Todd Palin didnít beat her? Because Sarah Palin didnít throw her out of the family? Because they didnít force their daughter and the father into a shotgun wedding? That her daughter is one of 50 million women if not more in this country who first became pregnant as an unmarried teenager?
There are many legitimate criticisms of Gov. Palin. But having a dysfunctional family isnít one of them. Herís is a particularly functional family. The one thing that impressed me about Palin is her refusal to ever state anything but love of and loyalty to her daughter. No attempts to get her to criticize her daughter were successful.
sazerac is correct. Those calling themselves liberals used to understand the important concept of tolerance. Now many are sneering out every manner of bigotry and prejudice with despicable levels of moral judgmentalism.
I am an election judge for the local Democratic Party. I am not someone who parrots slogans. This shift of some falsely self described liberals from being highly tolerant to more judgmental than the most radical rightwing Christians is pitiful. They are slinging out moral condemnations, religious bigotries, racial bigotries and gender bigotries beyond anything I read Republicans doing. This forum reeks of it from those falsely portraying themselves as liberal Democrats when they are screaming like rightwing religious hate fanatics.
What I see happening is many of the Democratic talking heads going more moralistic rightwing than Pat Robertson. It would appear a result of us winning the election is a rush of new style bigots and sexists over to our side.
GET THE FÖK OUT OF MY DEMOCRATIC PARTY!
For the record. Anyone who became pregnant or got a woman pregnant outside of marriage or as a teenager is completely welcome in MY Democratic party. Anyone who has a problem with you can have their ass thrown out the door. (Thatís one of the things election judges can do.)
