Palin Fails as a Mother

with 11 comments

"I may Be Broke But at Least I'm not Flat Busted"

Seems Grandpa Simpson’s Prom Queen ain’t much of a mother after all.

Now, don’t get me wrong, having your teenager daughter get knocked up isn’t in itself the sign of a failed mother. Why, just look at Britney Spears’ mother and teenager daughter Jamie Lynn. Who among us could say that Britney’s mom didn’t do a great job?

No, that’s not it at all. Unfortunately the failed sportscaster turned politican has long since preached her beliief in eschewing sex-education in the schools of Alaska in favor of what? You guessed it, teaching ABSTINICE. How that work out for her? Um, not so well. The Palin people today announced that Sarah Palin’s 17 year old daughter is, in fact, sperminated.

Will Republicans aknowledge that their VP in go-go boots perfeclty illustrates yet another failed GOP idea? Can they see that they now have a poster child for the failure of abstinence preaching teaching as an effective policy against unwanted pregnancy? Or will they admit instead that Palin simply sucks as a mom? I mean, which is it?

Side note: Anyone care to guess what Rush Limbaugh, et al would say if in a few years Michelle Obama’s daughter turned up as a pregnant, unwed teenager? Cue the FOX “News” graphics and the “Baby Daddy” slurs.

Remind me, is hypocrisy a family value? ‘Cuz I know picking up dudes in bathroom stalls is. And of course, so is whore chasing and pill popping.

  1. Good post… I’m noticing some of those ultra-right leaning bloggers are strangely silent since Governor Palin announced her daughter’s pregnancy.

    Strange…

    Though I’m enjoying the quiet for the moment…

  2. Awful lot of kids don’t adhere to their parents values, as teenagers are, by nature rebellious. However, if Bristol HAD adhered to her mother’s values, she would not be pregnant! It is more likely a case of falling to peer pressure and the bombardment of sexual behavior on television, in school, in the news, the culture, the demonizing of virginity and our hedonistic culture’s idea of actions without consequence. Leave it to the far left harpies to behave as though this is a strange and isolated case. The rates of teen pregnancies are over the top, and we HAVE sex education in the schools! It ISN’T working! Instead, you hand out condoms and shots, and the kids are pregnant, transmitting STD’s and adding to the nation’s fatherless homes and welfare rolls, that is, if they wisely decide not to multiply their mistakes by killing the baby, an irreversible decision, often regretted later…forever.
    Maybe we might go back to encouraging the girls to aspire to be ladies, instead of tramps…that worked before birth control, and the “sexual revolution”. This is a clear illustration of what happens when people refuse to practice SELF control instead of BIRTH control.

  3. Petey-

    Ohhhh… so Sara Palin is in no way responsible for the actions of her under age, minor child? Bristol Palin is in no way a product of her environment?

    And if we’re encouraging women not to be “tramps” as you so nicely put it, what, exactly do you propose encouraging the men not to be?

    Clearly you have much more information on this particular issue than I do… as you are so confident in solely blaming Bristol for her actions, while placing zero responsibility anywhere else… on the child’s father, perhaps? Is this not more likely a colossal failure on everyone’s part? Bristol, her parents, the baby’s father, her environment?

    I am amazed at your ability to put all the blame on the CHILD- in this case, a 17 year old kid… while placing absolutely no responsibility whatsoever on the household/environment in which this child was raised.

  4. Here’s a poem I wrote today and posted on my blog – I’d love to share:

    Through the camera we see
    your special-needs infant paraded about,
    and I wonder how
    you could voluntarily leave him
    in a stranger’s hands,
    how you would have the time
    for a more-than-full-time job.
    I see today the announcement
    that your underage daughter
    is pregnant.
    Your son will be
    mere months older
    than his newborn niece or nephew,
    and with two babies,
    one with Down’s Syndrome
    under one roof,
    you have time to put your country first?
    First before your family?
    Dear Sarah,
    I could understand
    if children with disabilities,
    their healthcare and rights,
    were near the top of your platform.
    Instead,
    you’re anti-polar bear
    and pro-gun,
    and still
    teaching condom use
    is not a priority.
    Dear Sarah,
    your gas-soaked vagina has let you down.
    It screamed
    pick me (it’s all they saw)
    while your family screamed
    help us (you didn’t hear).
    Your family values through you,
    your family’s value to you
    are both crystal clear.

  5. chaze77-you misread my post. I am not blaming Bristol, the blame belongs to our permissive culture and the very bad policies that have been put in place, because it encourages kids and adults to have “casual sex”…there are no boundaries anymore, its all about what feels good at the moment, without consequences or commitment. They are indoctrinated in the schools, and see it all over the airwaves, the internet and on the sidewalk. Bristol is NOT the only teenage girl who has found herself in this condition. And yes, you are right, this is a problem with boys as well, who are usually the ones who initiate this behavior.
    YOu can hardly blame the parents for a teenager’s mistakes, unless that is what the kids have been taught….which is certainly not the case here.

    The greater crime, in my opinion, is perpetrated by the ones who have initiated the blogs about this, which is really no one’s business, and certainly isn’t relevant to the election. It is just an exercise by small minded and mean spirited people who can’t find anything constructive to do.

  6. Petey-
    I can certainly agree that a whole heapin’ gob of the blame here goes to our permissive culture, but I do not believe that our culture the complete probmem. That’s overly simplistic… we need to do away with this idea that casual sex is ok, but we also need to educate our children about the importance of safe sex. When I say “we” I am talking about parents, not necessarily schools… though they play a role as well.

    As a parent, I realize how difficult it can be- or impossible, rather- to govern our kids each and every second of the day. Added to that challenge is the fact that though their minds are still children, their bodies are becoming adults… and along with that comes sexual desire, something we all know is not easy to ignore.

    Unfortunately these children are old enough to make huge decisions- that will potentially affect them for the rest of their lives- but they are given the responsibility to make smart choices, in spite of the fact that mentally, emotionally, they are still… well… children.

    I understand your concern about those who blogged about this issue to begin with- and I cop to the fact that I am one of those bloggers myself. However, the woman is on the ticket to become our VP. Like every other president/major politician before her, the life she leads, as well as that of her family, is now- right or wrong- public record. Palin knew this prior to accepting this particular position, just as McCain knew it prior to even asking her to be his running mate.

    While to you, our discussing this issue may make us small minded and mean spirited, I would venture to say you’re no better than any of the rest of us. Perhaps you didn’t post a blog on this topic… I don’t actually even know if you have a blog or not… but you, like so many others right now, are reading these posts and commenting on them.

    If the public at large were to stop reading these posts, and therefore stop the huge amount of traffic this topic is garnering us bloggers, perhaps we would get the hint that this is no longer of interest to anyone else…

    Rest assured, for the sake of our egoes, and the hits we bloggers seek every day, we would cease to talk about it anymore.

    Until then, we have our opinions… and you have yours. The great thing about blogosphere is that we’re all welcome to share them, popular or not.

  7. Bristol Palin is pregnant due to the fact that her selfish mother is busy with her career. Sarah Palin failed as a mother. Little girls need their mommies. Bristol is 17, a baby by my standards.

    i have three sons, I go to work early in the morning, just so I can see them every night, go to their sporting events, or recitals. My priority is raising fine young men. Sure it is a challenge to raise kids, but I made a promise to my boys when they were young. To take care of them, to nuture, to teach, to make them respnsible people.

    Sarah Palins has decided that her political career is more important than her kids. She even stated that she had her special needs child, and was at work two days later. I am sorry, but if my wife gave birth to that child, she would be home for good. Babies need their Mommies.

    My wife works, is a great lady, a “football mom” enjoys fishing, and the outdoors. Her priority is her children. Sarah Palin failed miserably as a Mother. Her daughter is having a baby because she needs someone to love her unconditionaly. Her mother is absent, her father is busy with his activities, what about the kids? Teenage pregnancy is due in large part to absent, or bad parents. I know all my sons friends, and their parents too. I bet you Sarah has no idea sho her friends are.

    I am an indenpentdent, who was going to vote for McCain, now I am striongly for Obama. Sarah Palin as president is way more scary than Obama.

  8. Chaze,

    I agree with your post. Mother who let their teenagers get pregnant are bad mothers. I like your way of thinking, but we should take it one step further.

    Let’s either mandate forced abortions or take the infants away at birth and sell them to the highest bidder and have the proceeds help pay for welfare.

    Let’s start in New York, Chicago and L.A.

    Great Post. I like the way you think

    I never said anyone was a bad mother… you got me ass backwards.

    If you’re going to quote me, quote me accurately. Otherwise, don’t even bother.
