McCain Vetting; Palin Priorities Called into Question
Okay, so riddle me this, BSB readers: if you knew your 17-year-old daughter was pregnant, why in the hell would you accept your parties' Vice Presidental slot, knowing that your daughter's name is about to be dragged through the mud as a symbol of how "abstinence education" has been an utter failure? Don't you think your priority should be helping your daughter prepare for this child's entry into the world, knowing full well that a 17 year old won't be able to handle the responsibility on their own?
Because Sarah Palin doesn't know what the duties of the Vice President of the United States are, maybe she thinks she'll have time. But it sounds to me like she isn't giving her family life the due consideration it deserves.
And, what does this say about John McCain's process for vetting VP picks? If he knew about the pregnancy, then this only becomes an even larger gamble on McCain's part, showing just how desperate he is to try and peel off some Clinton supporters from Obama while throwing red meat to the far right. It calls into question his judgement: why take such a gamble when the polls show you nearly tied with your opponent? If he didn't know, then his entire vetting process was a joke. Which is it? We'll have to wait and see.
