…then I might actual give a rat’s behind about her pregnancy.
It’s unfortunate that the society that has been largely built over the last 50 years on the social philosophy of the extreme Left makes it so difficult for parents to keep their children from engaging in activities that lead to pregnancy.
Our basic concepts of right and wrong, and our extended desire to know all the dirt about people and those they relate to (remember Billy Carter?), drive us down the worst rabbit trails when it comes to discussing the most important issue of the day, namely, who should be President and Vice-President?
Said Sarah Palin and her husband (through the McCain campaign office):

You know that I’ve more or less kept myself out of the brush on the VP nominations of both parties. As the level of media and blog speculation turned itself up to a glass-breaking pitch, it made no sense to me to eviscerate my commentary with idle and tiresome speculation. Too many possibilities, too much already being said.
That said, I would refer you to my comments from May 14th of this year. At that time, there was a survey done of US Senators to see who would be interested in being a VP candidate.

Both Democratic candidates were asked if they would consider the other as a running mate. Neither gave a smart answer. Each of them is fighting to set themselves apart from the other, and yet when asked about the VP slot, each gave an answer that suddenly sounded like they could easily work side-by-side. And enjoy it.
“Well, that may … be where this is headed, but of course, we have to decide who’s on the top of the ticket,”
“Obviously, it’s premature for either of us to address it,” she said.
She added: “There is a lot of … interest in that. Many Democrats are hoping for that. We have to sort through this nominating process to see … who ends
