my thoughts exactly

Drawing a Bead on the Press, NYT
"Ms. Palin’s prism of God, Alaska and Country, in that order, obscures an irony. When 17-year-old Jamie Lynn Spears, Britney’s sister, shows up pregnant, it becomes one more example of permissiveness gone amok. But array those same circumstances over 17-year-old Bristol Palin, and it is received at the convention as one more example of steadfast prolife values."

The article makes many valid negative points, but is also presented in a pretty fair way, discussing her many unbelievable traits as a mom and leader.

Also, think about if Obama had a 17-year-old pregnant daughter and what Fox News would be churning up about America's 'irresponsible urban culture.'
