The left is freaking out harder than I've ever seen before.  Thank you John McCain.

Do you have a link or any evidence of this? Or is this just you talking it up to try to create what you speak of?

so most americans are full of poo since they condemn children of illegal immigrants who's been bound by the choice of their parents.?

Do I really need to answer that? LOL. Half of Americans hate Arabians because of what a small group of them did. It's not right, but that's the way it is. Just because everybody else makes stupid judgments about people based on circumstances out of control doesn't mean that you should as well.

And quit trying to smear Palin, please. Criticize her policies and her plans, not her daughter or her husband or her extra marital affairs. That has nothing to do with being Vice President. By attacking her the way you do, you make us liberals look weak and pathetic.

tbh, she (or her campaign) made her family fair game, to some extent, by holding her most recent child up as evidence of her pro-life convictions.  When that same conviction comes into play with her eldest daughter, it seems again to be fair game.  Not to mention her other convictions that twist around the issue of teen pregnancies.  She (or the people she is supposed to attract) are the ones who condemn teen pregnancy and suggest a strong nuclear family and religious upbringing as the solution.  In other words, take her and her daughter's situation as a case study, if you will.  It is absolutely fair game and goes to the heart of some aspects of her positions.

By way of analogy, if someone in her family had been killed by a gun accident in the home, we would say that goes to the heart of her position on guns.

And of course, we shouldn't focus exclusively on her family issues.  Her other positions deserve attention too.

I completely understand your point. But, by doing this, liberals play right into republicans hands. These social issues are essentially meaningless, they are only used to influence voters, but they don't actually matter. Abortion, guns, religion, others, I mean. By bringing them up, liberals therefore make these divisive issues. By discussing them, we somehow indicate it matters, and these issues- sex education, GOD, guns- are the reasons that rural, poor, working class people who should vote democrat in every election for their own betterment always vote republican.

Exactly. I just wish democrats would bring that up rather than attacking her child's pregnancy or anything else stupid like that. When a republican talks up palin, I just wish people would ask them, ok, good, but what is she going to do as VP?


But our system is way too screwed up for that level of intelligence from the average voter. All we care about is gossip.
