It’s hard, really,really, hard to not get caught up in the politics of the Presidential election right now.
Every station, newspaper, radio talk show, headline, blip, frequency, radio wave, moonbeam…is just slowly sucking me down the political turnpike. And we all know there are often very few redeeming qualities there.
I have always had a healthy interest in the political machine but this year’s election…IS GETTING REALLY INTERESTING.
Anyway, Friday’s announcement of Sarah Palin taking the Vice-Presidential nomination was big news.
However, as dramatic as it was, a new storm of unsettling controversy has overshadowed it.
The announcement of the pregnancy of Sarah Palin’s seventeen-year-old daughter now looms over the ballot box.
But how much does this new turn of events really affect the poll’s? Would it change your vote?
Does it make her a bad mother, governor or leader that her daughter finds herself in a less than desirable situation?
Of course many political strategists like to say this turn of events will hurt her and McCain in the polls. Others say she has not been a mindful parent. However, it’s pretty difficult to control every moment of your teenager’s life. Almost impossible really.
So should the pregnancy of her daughter be politicized?
Is this really news?
What’s the relevance here?
