McCain Campaign Playing up Bristol Palin's Pregnancy Yet Want Critics to Lay Off

3 September 2008 at 2:33:21 PM

Pfffttt. Bunch of hypocrites. Here's the McCain campaign making sure that Bristold's pregnancy is not played up.

Gee, as the commentator in the video says, doesn't this BRING BACK THE FAMILY DISCUSSION?As I said, the RNC is willing to use Sarah Palin's down syndrome baby as a prop, the baby daddy as a prop and Bristol as a prop. So it's completely fair game to criticize the fact that the family values don't match up with the stances McCain and Palin take on women and family.

Here's more from Dan Savage at Slog

Is anyone else shocked that Levi Johnston, the boy that famously ejaculated inside Sarah Palin's daughter five or so months ago, is reportedly going to be at the RNC tonight? Presumably he'll be sitting in the section of the stands reserved for the family.

Bristol's pregnancy is a private matter, the McCain camp keeps insisting, and yet the boy that knocked Bristol up, a kid whose since-yanked MySpace page indicated that he didn't want children, is going to be paraded before the Republican faithful and sit in the section of the Xcel Center reserved for family members... even though, you know, he's not technically a member of the Palin family at the moment.

Anyone else wondering if Levi is going under duress? Anyone else concerned that Levi's appearance tonight at the RNC will put this reluctant dad in the position of feeling that he must go through with marrying Bristol? Anyone else staggered by the emotional manipulativeness of this stunt? Anyone else believe that it would be in the best interests of Levi, Bristol, and their unborn child if made a free choice to marry Bristol—will he be able to have second thoughts?—and didn't feel that he had to go through with it to save face after he received a hero's welcome at the RNC from the assembled GOP hypocrites? (Your pregnant unwed teenagers suck! Our pregnant unwed teenagers rock!)

Far be it from me to question anyone else's parenting, but... where are Levi's parents? If this were my son—and I have a son—I would not allow him to be paraded around on national television tonight.
