Obama's mother was just about the same age as Bristol Palin is when she had Obama.
Obama was doing cocaine when Palin's husband had a few drinks too many.
It's not that there's a double standard, it's that there is no standard.
Here at the XCEL energy center, the talk is all Palin all the time and the vicious attacks on Palin. It is disgusting. They are off the rails. The leftist party, allegedly the party of women rights is in full demolision mode devoid of any journalist standard or integrity. It's media tourette syndrome.
Where are the feminists?
It seems in one master stroke McCain swiped the mantle of "change" right out from under them. The only change Obama is selling is the color of his skin. He is a sharp useless hack who came up through the corrupt political machine of Chicago politics.
In all my conversations with big wigs and small toupees the consensus here is very much the same. This woman is a wonder woman. Rich Galen said, she's made of steel, they'll never get to her. I asked him if he thought the Americans will buy the media propaganda against Palin. "No way".
Palin has achieved more in her 44 years the whole of the Democrat party has done in the past 44 years. The Democratic Party is being driving solely by Daily Kos, MoveOn.org. If the RNC had half a brain, they'd throw KOS out of the convention center on their ass.
It's gross and it is my fervent hope that clear thinking Americans will be shell shocked by this attack on a truly great American.
As a mother of four children I am mortified by the attacks on Palin's ability to serve. How dare they? Every working American mother should vote with their feet.. Vile and demeaning. I do more in the course of one day than those media asshats accomplish in a lifetime.
DOING THE MATH: OBAMA V PALIN'S DAUGHTER (Heather Thompson did the math)
DOB: 10/18/1990 5 mos pregnant due in December, w hich means she'll be 18 when she has the baby, She will have been 18 for about 2 months
Sen. Barack Obama
DOB: August 4, 1961
His mother Stanley Ann Dunham DOB: 11/29/42 … Married: Feb. 2, 1961… Obama's mother was 3 mos pregnant when she got married [and whether she was really married or not, is a whole other issue.]and got pregnant a MONTH AFTER she turned 18
How can they criticize Palin's daughter when both Obama's mother AND Palin's daughter got pregnant before they were both UNWED AND PREGNANT AT 18?
UPDATE: NEWT ROCKS IN THIS VIDEO (hat tip peach)
(Apparently McCain was harrased by Campbell Brown/CNN in an interview and McCain responded by refusing CNN more interviews! She is SO in the Obama camp it's beyond patronizing, it's prostitution.) hat tip van
