Posted on 09/01/2008 4:38:24 PM PDT by Mr Rogers
My first reaction was shock. Then anger. John McCain chose a running mate simply because she is a woman and one who appealed to the Republican's conservative evangelical base. Now, with news that Palin's 17-year-old unmarried daughter is pregnant, McCain's pick may not even find support among "family values" voters...This may be a hard one for the Republican conservative family-values crowd to swallow. Of course, this can happen in any family. But it must certainly raise the question among the evangelical base about whether Sarah Palin has been enough of a hands-on mother.

In fact, she doesn't seem to know much at all...
All the pleas from the Obama camp to keep wives and families out of the fray notwithstanding.
They’re throwing anything they can find to see if it sticks.
What pregnancy problem?
And funny, ANYTHING they say can and will be used against Obama (whose out of wedlock mother had him at 18 years of age)
How dumb. They like to believe their opponents are sexless and that nobody deals with shotgun weddings.
Well, that makes them weak and well as simple-minded.
Gimme a break.
“This may be a hard one for the Republican conservative family-values crowd to swallow.”
This author has no idea at all about ‘family values.’
I guess her view is to get your daughter on the pill and send her with your platinum card to the mall while you go to the spa.
The daughter’s pregnancy has no bearing on a principled voter.
Did Sally have kids? I think she married the old boy for his looks, but it might have been to raise a family.
Like I REALLY believe this...
We need to know more about Bidens health

Has Joe Biden been drinkin?

Oh, Sally. Save it for the DC cocktail party chatter. Or did your invites dry up?
No problem here.
This is so pathetic. It just goes to show they don’t have a clue. They are digging themselves very deep holes and sooner or later people are going to see them for what they are...
There is no problem here. Obama would prefer his daughter have an abortion, rather than be “punished with a baby”.
“All the pleas from the Obama camp to keep wives and families out of the fray notwithstanding.”
It was intended only for the Obama-Biden people, not for Republicans .....
This only solidifies her support with conservatives and evangelicals. Stand by your family and embrace/support in good times and bad.
Sally Quinn, obviously doesn’t know many evangelicals.
The kids messed up. They’re trying to make it right. Her parents, and probably his, are trying to help them.
What problem, exactly?
Sarah Palin is pregnant again?
I’m actually surprised Huckabee hasn’t chimed in yet to trash the Palin’s. This would be right up his alley.
What's sauce for the goose is sauce for the gander
The left is pushing this story to drive the excited conservative base away...it’s obvious.
They are so wrong.
A pregnant daughter -— I was just comparing that to THE BRECK GIRL and his affair, behind his dying wife’s back, getting his mistress pregnant, and supporting the baby and the mistress, then LYING ABOUT IT to the public, and God knows how long before he told his wife, she was being backstabbed while dying of cancer.....
Makes having a pregnant daughter, getting ready to marry apparently, seem kinda trivial, like the entire agenda of the left in terms of importance for America.....hmmmmmm
Now Sally, it’s obvious this is your driveling wish, but you’ve got a juggernaut of a problem coming and this isn’t going to stop it. Do you actually think we value your opinion? Such a silly little girl.
The more of an issue you make of it, the more the good, wholesome reaction of the Palin family will register with and resonate with the voters.
In addition, it will bring more attention to Sarah and her glaring advantage in expoerience over both democratic rivals.
But, if Palin was a liberal and had succeeded in persuading Bristol to get an abortion, Sally would be praising her as a great parent.
Reading her other articles, Sally Quinn seems to be an Obama supporter.
The liberal moonbats’ concern for unborn children all of a sudden is really starting to baffle me. What’s up with the wackos? They never seemed to care about embryos before. You can sure tell it’s election time.
ANY good parent knows that you raise them in the best way that you know, and trust that the child will make the correct decisions. Obviously, sometimes they don't.
This recent flip/flop of the demoncrats that the parents are to blame for a child's bad choices is not only hypocritical, not only against the very tenets of "anything goes" of the liberals, but is also against logic.
It's hilarious to watch them display their new found "morals".
I hear Quinn’s a dyke. And a homely one at that.
One word: Projection
I thought this was going to be a dull campaign and election. This will probably end up being the most fun election in my lifetime.
Sally Quinn does not understand that Evangelicals do not deny the possibility of family unhappiness, folly, and even tragedy. In fact, we expect it, for our faith tells us that such events are a part of life. And we are certain to expect that young people will make foolish choices, for youth is a time of folly. We do hope and expect that young people will use the faith they’ve been taught to make the best decisions possible despite their mistakes.
Ignorance of religious matters is a badge of honor among this crowd. Makes it that much more ludicrous when they attempt to speak on the subject.
Sally Quinn should be introduced to what REAL PROBLEMS are....just by looking at her Pres candidates background and associations. Then at the agenda of the entire DemoRAT Fifth Column agenda....
Get a life Quinn -—
This whole thing just shows how the beltway, the media and the left DON’T understand evangelicals and “right=wing” Chrisitans. They have some stereotpe in their head that is completely off.
It is amazing that major media hire Sally to discuss religion, when she apparently hasn’t met any church-goers. At least, not Catholics, Baptists, Methodists...
If I was hired to discuss how engineers view things, don’t you think I ought to talk to engineers?
If I remember correctly, she sang a different tune about John Edwards and his pregnant mistress.
> My first reaction was shock.
Another Captain Renault pops up.
> Then anger.
A vile chortle, perhaps.
It actually makes her all that much a real everyday person... Exactly why she was the perfect choice in the first place! I just found out I am going to be a grandfather too... My son just turned 20 and his fiance’ will be 21 later this year, but they are expecting in January. They have been together just over 3 years, and he asked her to marry him last Christmas, but were not planning the wedding for a couple more years. He wanted to finish up his bachelor’s degree. We are not really happy about the situation, but on the other hand, they never talked about getting an abortion either... All that is left now is Love and support them however possible, We are all human, we make mistakes! It this case, is not the situation, but how it is dealt with that is most important.
Southern Baptist leaders like Richard Land and Al Mohler have praised McCain’s choice. But these are the same men who support this statement from the 2000 Baptist Faith & Message:
“A wife is to submit herself graciously to the servant leadership of her husband even as the church willingly submits to the headship of Christ. She, being in the image of God as is her husband and thus equal to him, has the God-given responsibility to respect her husband and to serve as his helper in managing the household and nurturing the next generation.”
If dirt was a precious commodity I’d invest in bulldozers just to collect a good portion of the generously spewed muck by the vicious elitist media and leftist hacks.
The more they try to manufacture outrage the funnier they are.
The thing about the permanently outraged is that it never varies. They will attribute it to this thing or that, but the truth of the matter is that they are always outraged at us just for being us.
And if the outrage is a constant, then it has no meaning, its just noise. Turn the squelch knob left up a little and ignore it.
LOL!!! Sally Quinn is comparing the Vice-Presidency to being a talking head on morning television???
“Im actually surprised Huckabee hasnt chimed in yet to trash the Palins. This would be right up his alley.”
Isn’t that the truth.
On second thought, he’s only into trashing Mormons.
