McCain Has a Bun in the Oven?

Not literally, but now that McCain’s newly acquired running mate’s 17 y/o daughter does, are the reds screwed? At first glance it seems so, as negative publicity always comes with premature motherhood. Plus, who wouldn’t question the mother of a girl who gets knocked up before she can even vote? I know this kinda stuff happens all the time, but for it to happen to a presidential nominee right before the biggest election ever seems like horrible timing. Or maybe it’s perfectly planned. According to the Today show, sources say that McCain was well aware of the youngster’s pregnancy before he chose his veep. This tells me that it was all part of his scheme to appeal to the common woman and steal valuable votes from Barack. The decision to choose a woman looked desparate at first, as female republicans who were on the fence are now more likely to vote McCain purely because he has a woman next to him. People aren’t that dumb, but now he locked up those voters because they relate to the struggles of motherhood. As scandalous as this guy may be, I have to give him snaps as this makes the most interesting election to date much more interesting.

  2. Good point, teen pregnancy is definitely a common occurrence and I can see how many American women can relate to Palin’s motherly struggles, although I’m not sure that this will sway the majority of women to vote for McCain. The mere fact that they can relate to her doesn’t mean that they trust her to potentially run the country if McCain chokes on his dentures. For example, I can relate to Hunter S. Thompson’s loathing of Vegas, but I don’t think I would trust him to run the country that I live in…

  3. I think what hurts the McCain Camp most – and Palin especially – is the fact that she is a hardcore right-winger who preaches abstinence and also voted to ensure that creationism be taught in the classroom while voting against sex-ed being taught. The fact that Mrs. Palin doesn’t think sex-ed is an important program in schools is another example of how out-of-wack the right agenda is.

    On another note, Bristol Palin got some tig-ole-bitties.
