Sarah Palin knew that her 17-year-old, unmarried daughter was pregnant when she made the decision to run for Vice-President.
Think about that.
No matter what happened, everyone in the State of Alaska was going to know that the unmarried, 17-year-old daughter of the Governor had, despite Alaska's abstinence-only curriculum (supported by her mother) and her mother's self-righteousness, been spreading it around the Yukon.
BUT HER MOTHER DECIDED TO RUN FOR VICE-PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA SO THAT EVERYONE IN THE ENTIRE WORLD WOULD KNOW! So much for putting family above everything.
Apparently the McCain campaign knew about the pregnancy before offering Palin the VP slot. (Hard to believe.) It is also being reported by the Associated Press that they released the information on the unplanned pregnancy to dispel rumors that Sarah Palin's 4 month old son was really the illegitimate offspring of her 17-year old.
Sarah Palin sacrificed her daughter's dignity and privacy for her own ambition. She is THE WORST MOTHER IN THE EFFING WORLD, EVER.
John McCain's campaign put out a press release announcing the pregnancy, and in it said "Senator McCain's view is this is a private family matter." Well then why did they put out a press release?
It seems that there are several roads to stupid and the McCain campaign is determined to take all of them. I just wish they wouldn't take them all on one day. It's giving me a headache.
