    “There is a special place in hell for women who do not help other women,” former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright once remarked.

    Where, then, are the liberal women when it comes to Alaska Governor Sarah Palin?

    Palin became the first woman to grace a Republican ticket on Friday, August 29, when Senator John McCain selected her as his running mate. The following day, a diarist at the mainstream left-wing Daily Kos (Barack Obama himself appeared as a Kos diarist back in 2005) suggested without any evidence whatsoever that Sarah Palin’s son, Trig, recently born and with Down syndrome, was birthed not by Palin but by her daughter.

    Andrew Sullivan of The Atlantic jumped on the bandwagon, demanding that the McCain campaign release Trig’s medical records.

    The rumor, of course, was demonstrably false -- Kos took down the post

    Sarah Palin is the new Clarence Thomas. The liberals hated the fact that Thomas is conservative so they tried their best to ruin him. Thank God they didn't. The same thing is happening to Palin, since she doesn't fit in with the group politics of Cultural Marxism that the Democratic party pushes.

    One thing I did think was funny from the RNC was when Fred Thompson said about her credintials was that she was from the largest state in the union.

    Alaska is by far the largest state in the union, it is larger than Texas, California, and Montana combined.

    Then KenH took the grief for what you clearly initiated, then there was consensus to leave family out of it, and then somebody proceeds to post something on Joe Bidens son with an excuse, that everyone else is doing it.

    but just a reminder. and this is after Obama is savaged on the board weeks before from anything to do with his brother and other family members.

    but a good reminder from the top

    Geographically, but not in population.

    The are the same place that conservative women were in supporting Hillary.

    Also there are conservative women who do not like this appointment. As I was driving across town today a woman a McCain supporter, was interviewed. She said, "Do they really want me to believe that in the House and Senate there is no woman as or more quilified? Do they think I am stupid? I have always supported McCain 100%, but now I am wondering about him."

    Another woman said, "Do they believe that because I supported Hillary that I will support any woman just because she is a woman? That is insulting."

    I may be wrong, but I believe you were one of several here who was upset over African-Americans voting heavily for Obama and called them racist. Is it not sexist to expect all women to support another woman simply because she is a woman?

    Did you not read the linked article? It is not about voting for anyone.

    Yes, I did read the link. Where were the conservative women when sexist attacks were made against Hillary?

    The point was, 47th in population and Fred was making a big deal of it being the biggest.

    If they flattened all the mountains of West Virginia out then it, WV, would be the biggest geographically. :laugh: [humor here, laugh y'all.]

    Why on earth would we want another candidate from the House or Senate. We already have 2 presidential candidates and 1 VP hopeful from there. The governors was the right place to work. IMHO governors make better presidents than legislators anyway. Reagan, Carter, Bush (W.), Clinton, were they not all governors? When was the last time a sitting house or senate member won the white house?

    I believe that Bristol should have been educated about contraceptives, but I also believe that her parents should have the right to educate her or not educate her about them as they see fit. It is not up to the school or village to make these kind of moral choices for our children, it is up to their parents! My kids have and will be educated about such things, but they will receive that education from me.

    I voted for her in the primary because I didn't want Obama to be the Democratic candidate. That's where this conservative woman was. :eek:

    I admire Hilliary in so far as her achievements as a woman, for not hiding under the covers when faced with a philandering husband that all the world knew about, but picking herself up by the boot straps and carrying on. That took guts, courage, and chuzpah!

    I don't admire her stance on abortion or some of her other ideas, but as a woman I have to give credit where credit is due. She made 18 million cracks in the hardest, toughest, highest ceiling in the world. Hopefully, with Sarah Palin, what Hillary and Geraldine Ferraro started, Palin will break through in just a few short weeks.

    As far as the interview with conservative women about McCain's choice, it would not surprise me if it was on NPR, decidedly liberally biased. Please do not confuse Conservative with Republican, either. OTOH, there may be a few Democratic women who will voice with their vote, it is longer overdue to have a woman crack that glass ceiling than for a minority. We still don't have equal pay for equal job performance or equal credentials or experience even in 2008, although some gains have been made.

    Edited to add, I think Hillary was cheated by her own party out of what should have been hers. She was also treated very shabbily by them.

    I agree with you that teenagers, indeed children, should be taught about sex at home. But most homes do not do the job. Indeed most homes do not talk about sex at all. Given that the home is not doing the job it surely would be better if the church taught sex education. But that is not being done either. Given that both the home and church are falling down on the job it seems if anyone is going to teach sex education it is the schools.

    I am glad you are going to teach your children. That is the way it should be done.

    I really don't get teaching both (abstinence, contraceptives) in the home. Right is right and wrong is wrong. It's like saying "it's wrong to speed when you drive, teen-ager, but in case you decide to anyway, here's what you need to avoid the radar gun...blah blah blah...."

    Of course I can't say for sure, but I'm pretty certain Sarah and Todd taught their teens about abstinence, and about the consequences of disobedience...pregnancy, STD's, etc, etc. Obviously Bristol didn't heed their advice. Sadly it is not the first or the last time a teen will decide to do it "their way", but this is no excuse to compromise our teaching.

    Then again, I can't say they didn't talk about contraceptives. I haven't asked them, and haven't read any reports on it myself. If they did, would I agree with them? No.

    I think in this day and age you have to teach both. If I could be 100% sure that my kids would abstain from sex that would be great, but I can't be. They are going to hear about contraception at some point, I would rather it be from me. Who knows what their friends will try to tell them or even if it will be accurate.

    Crabtown, I hear you. Our school system is an "abstinence only" system. One of my close friends is assistant principal at our high school. They had 7 pregnancies last year. What frustrates him the most is that he is by law forbidden to teach anything about contraception. He would agree that abstinence is great, but there are kids that he knows are not going to abstain. He would love to have honest conversations with them about contraception, but he can't. And here is where I disagree with him and agree with out school board. Once he starts that conversation then he is teaching moral values to his students. Something that we usually view as a part of religion. I agree that the parents are doing wrong and I wish the schools could fill that gap and do the job that parents are failing to do, but once they cross that line then our schools are teaching religion. And if those are public schools with public funding then we would be using our government to teach a religious view. That is something I am not willing to do.

    The thing is when a student gets pregnant he (the principal) views it as a failure on is part. MHO is that is wrong. It is a moral failure when an unmarried teenager gets pregnant, but that moral failure is on the part of the student, their partner, and their parents. It is not a failure on the part of the principal or the school. Unless of course the school has crossed that line like many have. It may seem like a small issue to many and not worth even one unwanted pregnancy but it is a huge issue to me. Once we take the responsibility for the moral upbringing of our children away from the parents and transfer that responsibility to the government then we have destroyed the family as the base unit of our civilization. Some families have and will fail, but that does not mean we get rid of them all.

    Well, explaining-teaching and promoting-teaching are two different things. I have no problem with explaining, I do with promoting. I explained why in my previous post. Right and wrong do not change with the day and the age.
