WHO SAID GOVERNOR PALIN SHOULDN’T BE THE V.P. CHOICE BECAUSE OF CHILDREN? A CONSERVATIVE – NOT THE MEDIA!

THE REAL SOURCE OF THAT CONTROVERSIAL COMMENT!

There’s been a lot of back and forth about the media beiung sexist against Governor Sarah Palin. That despite people at the Republican convention wearing buttons saying “The Hottest VP from the Coolest State.” But the other issue has been the issue of too many children to be Vice President. I heard some Republicans complain the evil media was attacking her for that. Actually, the person who made that statement was conservative talk show host Dr. Laura. Here’s the excerpt from her blog – the Insite just wants to bring you the facts:

From Dr. Laura Schlessinger’s blog:

I am extremely disappointed in the choice of Sarah Palin as the Vice Presidential candidate of the Republican Party….

I’m frankly and sadly caught in the dilemma of having to balance policy versus example in touting a candidate for the office of the First Family…

Role models are very important. Children and young adults look to those who are visible and successful as a road map of what is acceptable behavior and emulate those actions over the morals and values their parents and churches have taught and tried to reinforce. It’s a tough go these days, when the “bad that men or women do” is used for entertainment purposes without judgment, or is excused because of political or financial considerations.

I’m stunned – couldn’t the Republican Party find one competent female with adult children to run for Vice President with McCain? I realize his advisors probably didn’t want a “mature” woman, as the Democrats keep harping on his age. But really, what kind of role model is a woman whose fifth child was recently born with a serious issue, Down Syndrome, and then goes back to the job of Governor within days of the birth?
