So, all of those rumblings early last week about McCain picking the governor of Alaska as his Veep were on the money. Most people figured that he would have to do something considered 'unusual' to have a good chance at stealing some of Barack's thunder. Picking Sarah Paulin is supposed to attract the disgruntled HRCites. So, how funny was it, just a few days later to find out that the GOP VP nominee's daughter is about to become a baby mama.
Of course Obama took the high road (a road he's well familiar with) and denounced any effort to pull him into some negative BS surrounding the situation. Now, the GOP pundits are crying about how Paulin could not possibly be responsible for the choices that her daughter has made. Paulin is backing up her daughter, saying that she looks forward to becoming a grandmother and that the young woman will be getting married to the sperm donor soon.
Ok, let's get this straight.
They want me to believe that a 17 year old getting pregnant is NOT a reflection of parental influence.
That they couldn't be happier about this development?
I blame Juno, Knocked Up, Gossip Girl and Jamie Lynn Spears for the double standard that is becoming so popular amongst mainstream America. These little white girls are out there being extra fast and the conservative mainstream is eating it up with sprinkles and chocolate sauce.
It burns me up that just a few months ago, there was a hailstorm surrounding Jeremiah Wright's (JW) comments with regard to Barack, America and white people. MSA (mainstream america) argued that Barack was somehow responsible for JW's comments since he had chosen him as a spiritual advisor/leader. I don't know about you, but my mom has a whole lot more influence on my behavior and decision making process than my preacher...especially when I was 17 years old.
Have you ever had an argument with someone that had no evidentiary support for their position so, they threw out one illogical conclusion after the other...then you get so bogged down with trying to follow the faulty logic that you get frustrated, so you basically throw your hands up and say, 'Ok, you're right!'?? Well, that's what the republicans are trying to get us to do, throw up our hands and just let them win. That is soo not happening.
Barack is smart because he knows that the best way to win an unfair fight is to not engage in the first place.
I swear, these people get on my nerves with this kind of BS.
Yes we can!
