The big news yesterday besides hurricane Gustav was the announcement that Republican VP candidate Sarah Palin’s daughter is five months pregnant and is planning to keep the baby. The media has had a field day with this news.
Here are my thoughts…Unmarried teenage girls getting pregnant is not exactly earth shattering news. And…It certainly is not anyone’s place to be judgemental about a 17 year old girl who most of us (living outside of Alaska) did not even know existed until a few days ago.
I say…Give the family a break and let them handle the situation without the media’s constant interference. This young woman’s pregnancy has nothing to do with how her Mother would handle the role of Vice President. Let’s not suddenly create a holier than thou attitude in this country as an attempt to defame Sarah Palin.
Let’s stay focused on what’s most important….the knowledge and credibility of the candidates.
