Bristol Palin’s Having a Baby

Posted by Ryan on September 1, 2008

She’s 17 and has got a lot of growing up to do! 

Bristol Palin is having a baby and will do the right thing and shortly marry the father.  Sarah and Todd have indicated that the press should respect the historical privacy of the candidate’s children and stay out of this ordeal.  The One agrees.  The Palins have a positive attitude and will be supportive of their oldest daughter and her soon-to-be-husband… given Sarah Palin’s history with guns, this gives new meaning to the term “shotgun wedding.”

Elated Libs just don’t get it.  Some of the conspiracy theories and allegations on the blogosphere are terrible and I will not post a link to them out of respect and tact. 

To be frank just because Bristol is pregnant, doesn’t mean Conservatives will abandon her mom, nor does it mean Palin’s not Conservative, nor will Conservatives lose respect for her.  That Bristol is getting married, keeping the baby, and is still embraced by her parents are all things consistent with Conservative values.  Remember, the Family Values crowd also believes that we’re all sinners and need the guidance of Jesus’ teachings to help us through life’s tribulations.  This whole issue doesn’t exemplify model behavior, but given the situation, this shows the Palins are ready to face life’s challenges, while showing themselves to be good people dealt a difficult hand.

Palin v. Obama on Experience

Posted by Ryan on September 1, 2008

Gerard Baker penned this quick comparison of Sarah Palin and Barack Obama.   The contrasts could not be more clear and could not be more indicative that a Palin-type character is much more desirable in high office than an Obama-type politician. 

Young and ambitious, Obama has followed a typical political corsus, yet rising much too fast to accumulate wisdom and take true responsibility for his political decisions without hiding behind or within the votes of others.  Young and driven, Palin has worked in the private sector, the public sector, and has held local and state offices that force her to be where the “buck stops” on numerous issues, accelerating her wisdom and forcing her to take sole responsibility for her actions.

I know that this election is McCain v. Obama (which on experience isn’t even close), but if the Dems are going to whine about Palin’s lack of experience, then their own candidate needs to look in the mirror and do some thinking about whether or not the Dems really want to go there.
