Of course, it’s not so much about babies and pregnancies and who had whose child; it is, however, very much about hypocrisy and the ability of the Republican combination of John McCain and Sarah Palin to give the American people an honest accounting of themselves because if they can’t even do that, how are they going to be trusted to govern the US, the worlds most influential nation?
I for one an sick of politicians who feel that concealment from the public whose taxes pay for all is a divine right.
The issue over Trig is not about Trig nor even about Bristol, but about yet another politician that We The People cannot and should not trust. Our current Vice President came into office with secret energy task force meetings that apparently laid the foundations for a war, and is still fighting tooth and nail to tell the American people that it is none of their business what goes on inside the halls of power. The issue over whether Palin faked a pregnancy is not a question about the pregnancy; it is a question of the candidate's character.
And, setting aside the question of the pregnancy that may not have been (and the hypocrisy of a moral preaching that does not match a personal life) there is still the troopergate mess, which reveals a politician willing to use political power for personal vendetta. And that is something we DARE not allow into the Vice President's mansion. We have already seen a Vice President force the man he shot with a shotgun to apologize on TV. Palin os clearly more of the same.
Palin is on the ticket, and McCain is stuck with her. All Obama has to do is not make any mistakes, and he will be the next President.
