Obama says families of politicians are off-limits and doubly so for their children. Clearly the conservatives have different plans.

Notes CNN:

...Sarah Palin's announcement Monday that her 17-year-old daughter is pregnant -- and she supports her daughter -- shows that the Alaska governor is steadfast in her support of family values, GOP loyalists and anti-abortion groups say.

So the wingnuts are not only using the daughter's decision as a political marker but lauding Palin for a decision she didn't actually make.

Well ...OK, we all know that the conversation didn't involve the phrase "whatever you decide, we support you."

Which makes me wonder how the wingnuts would respond if Bristol opted for an abortion and Mrs. Palin stood beside her?

Is abandoning your daughter a family value too?

Beautiful. I was wondering the same thing myself.

Glen Beck actually made some sense yesterday when he made a similar comment.

Uh-oh are you two both 'thinkers'?

That Glen Beck and I had similar lines of thought is enough to make me want to slather myself in Vicks, crawl between two flannel sheets and call it a day.

Nice visual, point taken! Y

You should be pleased that he went on to make a complete ass of himself and is right back on track as of last night!
