Your general belief seems to be that Bristol’s behavior reflects negatively on the Governor, Correct?

The converse. The fact she is Gov. Palin’s daughter bestows upon her no special exemption from what should be societal shame. Much less celebration for her decision for what is, in general, a bad decision for the child and society.
Single parenthood is bad. Bad for the person, bad for the child, bad for society. There should be great shame (and perhaps adoption) in the offing, not book signings and celebration.
Choosing to have the child is up there with choosing not to rob a bank (OK, a higher moral imperative) — choosing to do the right thing in a bad situation doesn’t elevate the decision. It just is doing the right thing.
It doesn’t undo the bad decision.
No one seems to be willing to answer my question: was this not Gov. Palin’s daughter would we be feting her?
