    And so all of this is a proxy attack on Sarah Palin.

    What I find sad is that a thread that has devolved such as this one has could reach ten pages. I don't like seeing politicians' kids gone after, and I don't care what the party or lean is. Sure, Bristol Palin has put herself "out there" now. That doesn't mean any of us have to stoop to ugly, malicious comments about her that are really only a proxy attack on her mother.

    I mean, really--do you feel good about yourself slamming a 20-something kid who's made mistakes and embarrassed her parents and all the rest of it? Whether it's Al Gore's kid being popped for weed or Alexandra Kerry being busted for DUI or Chelsea being homely when she was kid or the Bush twins being "sluts"...is this really, really necessary?

    She has handled her life without being a press whore. You can suggest she's not all that smart. Fine. but to suggest she's something less than classy is disingenuous. You're comparing her to a young woman who begins her television career in a bar confronting someone while riding a bull.

    I mean really?

    When it came time for Caroline Kennedy to fish or cut bait, we all know what she did: She cut bait. And I don't blame her one bit. But again, why keep talking about Presidential kids and making them targets anyway? Don't we all have other stuff to discuss?

    then you say this.

    She is where she is because of her connection to her mother. to suggest otherwise is foolish and stupid.

    I mean, really--do you feel good about yourself slamming a 20-something kid who's made mistakes and embarrassed her parents and all the rest of it?
    As you so eloquently pointed out, she put herself out there. she gets what she gets. Therein lies the difference.

    You missed my point entirely: It's not about Bristol Palin or anybody else's kid; it's about us.

    But hey, if knocking Bristol Palin makes you feel good, knock yourself out.

    I didn't compare her to Palin. How can you compare a 60 year old to a 20 year old? I simply mentioned that an opinion given earlier about Palin was similar to my opinion about Caroline. I would like to know how you formed your opinion of her classiness as she has lived her life in private and her privacy has been respected by the press. Up until she sought the press lights when she thought a senate seat was about to be placed in her lap.

    Well actually you did.

    You're inferring a favoritism by the press. Typical right wing pap. The press lives and dies by even the slightest Kennedy fart. The Palins are hardly even rookies by that measure. She has avoided the press by living a straight life. Her behavior says it all.

    There's an old saying. What you do speaks far louder than what you say.

    My mom was watching the Kardashians the other day, and the mom is so weird.

    An interesting observation is that Conservatives used to love her and run to her defense... now they seem to be over her
