Remember how inspired we were when McCain announced Palin as his running mate? Such is the novelty of new love. It’s just heartbreaking that every time Sarah Palin stomps her foot, she firmly roots her growing reputation as petty and emotional. I thought women were stronger than this.

Forcing a formal apology from Letterman is the equivalent of demanding that Americans show respect for pre-marital “knock-ups”.

The fact that certain groups are rallying against Letterman only manages to make all women appear easily misled. (His joke was aimed at the older unwed mother, no one else.)

When did we get to the point where our nation’s future presidential candidate openly celebrates her unwed daughter’s pregnancy/parenthood?

I don’t think it’s appropriate to diminish teen pregnancy as a common mistake that should garner understanding and empathy since it can “happen to anyone”.

Unwed pregnancy doesn’t just happen to anyone. It happens to those who are careless, promiscuous and uneducated on the realities of sexual side effects. It’s also a direct reflection on a person’s upbringing. If I were Sarah Palin, I’d stay out of the public end of her daughter’s business and start focusing on the private side of real parenting.

I have said before that Sarah Palin exploits her daughter to stay in the public’s awareness. Her opportunistic behavior once again, proves my point.

Palin is rapidly losing credibility with her misdirected temper tantrums toward the entertainment industry. Directing national attention to Letterman’s joke and his apology makes Palin look small minded. I seriously doubt her daughter Bristol (at whom, as anyone would understand the jibe was directed) was all that offended by Letterman’s joke. After all, she herself said, “Abstinence is unrealistic.”

Kids say the darndest things.
