    Sarah Palin has to be kicking herself for not thinking of this little publicity stunt.

If she wants to make that decision on her own, more power to her, but she's not old enough to do that yet.

    You're going to need to catch me up to speed. I've never seen a photo of Bella Santorum, so please link me up. All I know is that her father gave a speech to the NRA over the weekend and said that he'd signed her up for a lifetime NRA membership.

    But in any event, it's not cool to joke about dying kids. Don't care who you are or what your deal is; it's wrong. Be smart and fair for a change.

    The girl has a syndrome that leads to defects, degenerative illnesses, and likely mental retardation. She's living on borrowed time, as most children with her genetic syndrome don't live to reach 18.

    Yeah, it's probably pandering to some people. It's kind of dumb.

    But it could also be a family making an attempt to build memories with a little girl they know is going to die. Kind of like families who have their army-loving child inducted into the forces symbolically because he's dying from stage 5 cancer. Santorum dropped out of this race while his daughter was sick in the hospital, and I'm sure a large part of his dropping out had to do with her illness.

    Kiss-ass vote seeker or not, I really don't care. I just feel heartbreak and pain for the loss they're facing in the near future.

    It's a life time membership... I'd be mad at my parents for doing something like that to me.

    I don't think this is big deal or something to be angry about, but can anybody explain some practical reason for him doing this??? And I mean practical in the sense that it serves some benefit other than political pandering... I don't get it, is something entirely over my head right now?

    That's basically my issue. Also that it's stupid.

    It's definitely pandering. I'm sure his daughter will be thrilled that dad got her that NRA membership before she died, instead of donating a sizable chunk of change to whoever is trying to find a cure for whatever it is she's got.
