V.P. NOMINEE PALIN, BREWING CONTROVERSY

In ELECTION 08, HOT BUTTON TOPIC, PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION on September 2, 2008 at UTC.56.30.

Not even a full week after her selection as McCain’s VP choice, a whirl wind of news surrounds the presumptive nominee. Sarah Palin, a social conservative who serves as the Alaskan governor, is causing some to call into question, to what extent was her V.P. vetting? Just how thorough did the McCain camp go into her background? It certainly calls into question, his exercise in judgement.

Gov. Palin’s 17 year old daughter is 5 months pregnant with a child from her high school boyfriend. Ironically, its the conservative platform that espouses ABSTINENCE! With this revelation seemingly to smack with contradiction according to those puritanical views.

What would the right wing media report if this was Obama’s daughter? To his credit, Obama has said “A person’s family should be off limits, and has no place in this election.”

While life happens, it is best not to rush to judgement in the wake of this latest revelation concerning Palin’s family. With all the apocolyptic weather patterns, pervasive war in the middle east, genocide in Darfur, rising costs of food & energy, and domestic economic uncertainty this hardly qualifies as newsworthy.

Albeit, we happen to learn of this news in the middle of a heated general election campaign . The GOP doesn’t need any more controversy considering how poorly their polls have cast the incumbent president which is also Republican.

I had the feeling when she was selected that there was more to her than we knew. Less than a week, I’ve heard a few controversial themes connected to her name. Moreover, she’s still the presumtive nominee, which means there could be a roll call vote on the floor of the GOP convention to nominate another selection for Vice-President.
