How is it that a woman, especially the governor of a state can be seven months pregnant and no one know anything about it? Even her staff didn’t know she was pregnant. Really? Really! So, as the questions were beginning to blossom into a full-blown conspiracy theory, Sarah Palin decided she needed to come forth with information that would solve one problem but create another.
The 17-year-old daughter of Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin is pregnant, Palin said on Monday in an announcement intended to knock down rumors by liberal bloggers that Palin faked her own pregnancy to cover up for her child. We have a prenant Palin, but it’s the unmarried daughter- that’s the new story.
Bristol Palin, one of Alaska Gov. Palin’s five children with her husband, Todd, is about five months pregnant and is going to keep the child and marry the father, the Palins said in a statement released by the campaign of Republican presidential candidate John McCain. Who the father is will be the next question, after a full vetting reveals other things, such as Todd Palin’s old DWI.
Here’s what I must ask. Why would someone want to be Predient or Vice President.
More specifically, why would a woman, who has FIVE kids, living about as far away from D.C. as one can, with a helps-needy five month old child, and a pregnant but unmarried seventeen year old daughter want to give up her family, lifestyle, and good life to run for VP? Tell me why anyone in that position would do such if not just an ego gratification move?
Sarah Palin may be the Conservative’s delight, but for me she’s made a very selfish decision that doesn’t sound like a mother who loves he kids and family, and maybe not too unlike a selfish mom who aborts her baby. I know the broader differences- life and death. But in another sense the selfishness is the same.
