Just One Thing About Sarah Palin

May I suggest to those who think that the fact that Sarah Palin's daughter is pregnant is important, that it is, in fact unimportant. The way the Palins have handled the situation is exactly how one would hope evangelical Christian parents would handle it. They have accepted the facts and their child with love and the daughter is getting married. Now, whether you agree with that solution in this day and age is another thing, but they are acting as their principles dictate. I am not detecting any hypocrisy at all. So let's get back to policy differences and leave the personal lives of politicians alone.

Update: I would like Sarah Palin to explain her position on Alaskan independence, for example.

Update: Yes, it does look like Mr. Palin was a member of the Alaska Independence Party until as lately as 2002. Sarah Palin sent the AIP a video of support to their 2008 convention.

These things raise some interesting questions. Is Mr. Palin still sympathetic to Alaskan independence? As the wife in a deeply committed Christian marriage, does Mrs Palin submit to her husband's political views as commanded by St. Paul in Ephesians 5: 22-24? Does her video to this year's AIP convention show the good judgment required of someone aspiring to become Vice President?

  1. Sorry, kind of looks like she wasn't a member. Her husband was, however:


  2. Thanks Tom. I will look at that.

  3. I always knew you were a rebel, Ben.

  4. I actually am.

    (I'm dead serious, here.)
