PUMA Politics: Palin…Walking The Talk
If you have not heard the whole story about Governor Palin and her daughter’s pregnancy, then you definitely have to pick up a newspaper, turn on the television, or jump on the internet. It is important that you understand what is happening to understand the contrast.
I personally do not give a flying super secret squirrel’s swooshy tail if this young woman is pregnant. That is exclusively her family’s business; not mine, not yours, not anybody’s. This does reinforce a point that has been giving me a chill up my spine ever since the Reverend Jeremiah Wright story broke at the beginning of the year, and one of the most important reasons why I cannot and will not vote for Barack Obama. I have seen a few folks on the blogs comment about this but I have not seen a post about this progression of thought in the blogosphere and it is just one more of those brain candy morsels.
The liberal left keeps hammering on Governor Palin as being Pro-Life and very anti-Abortion. She and her family stand by their belief system; decide to “walk the talk” and keep this baby. Two days after Governor Palin is introduced as Senator McCain’s running mate, she comes out and announces this incredibly personal family business in response to the liberal left blogs smearing her, her daughter, her husband and her entire family. I wonder how much spine one must have to do what Governor Palin just did? According to some of the press stories I have read, this baby is an “open secret” in Alaska. The Alaskans do not seem to be up in arms about it, and I personally think that people need to pull their heads out of the sand. It is 2008 already; life happens; go with it. June Cleaver; I am not.
Now I know you are probably sitting there scratching your heads wondering “Tigger, where are you going with this?” We already know that unless a person is seriously drinking the koolaid, the general public does not believe that Obama did not know what Jeremiah Wright was preaching at Trinity United. That is a given. We all know that Gumby has no spine or he would not have waffled around for a month deciding what to do about Rev. Wright. Another given. What you may not have thought about is this.
Senator Barack Obama and Mrs. Obama took their two young daughters to this church.
I think I am going to let that sink in a bit.
Are you a parent?
Is your head going to explode?
Governor Palin showing a spine of steel, following her belief system and supporting her family come what may….(sounds like another woman we all know)
Barack Obama stating he did not know and taking his children to listen to Black Liberation Theology…..
A little refresher course in fact; not fiction, not smearing….
