Sarah Palin Wishes NOW Was More Pro-Woman

"NOW is looking at the pro-life issue backwards. Women should be reminded that they are strong enough and smart enough to make decisions that allow for career and educational opportunities while still giving their babies a chance at life. In my own home, my daughter Bristol has also been challenged by pro-abortion 'women's rights' groups who don't agree with her decision to have her baby, nor do they like the abstinence message which she articulated as her personal commitment. NOW could gain ground and credibility with everyday Americans, thus allowing their pro-women message to be heard by more than just their ardent supporters, if they made wiser decisions regarding which battles to pick."
-Sarah Palin is upset that the National Organization for Women is protesting a pro-life ad CBS will run during the Super Bowl. It is kind of interesting what decisions women should be allowed to make!

I don't know much about vaginas, but I believe if you have a baby, you're not abstinent.

Along the same lines, I wonder if Bristol has been abstinent since the birth of her child? And, I wonder if she appreciates her mother speaking for her as much as I DON'T appreciate her mother TRYING to speak for me?

Yes, we shall all hope to one day have a child as strong and smart and blatantly hypocritical as Bristol Palin.

This is one of the distinctions I try to make between white people and Whitey; Whitey has this constant sense of melodramatic victimization that you see all through the Palinites' rhetoric. They go on and on about how the decision to have a baby is under constant assault by the 'culture of death' – I've actually seen them make the argument that pro-choicers think everyone should have an abortion.

It doesn't matter that they're the only people assaulting anyone's choices; the assumption of victimization trumps all. Infuriating.

It's a losing battle to debate with someone who doesn't understand what a "straw man" is, but employs one constantly.

"everyday Americans" is SO the new "real Americans" – I called it!

Also, Sarah? Shut up.

Right on, Sister! Women are capable of making those decisions.

Most of the time, though–Sister–someone else decides if they can afford them.

DECISIONS! I can think of another word for that. That words is CHOICE! Like, as in pro-CHOICE! Ain't it CRAZY?

KarenUhOh (#19)

"A decision is not a choice."

lbf (#2,343)

I find that puzzling.

Oh for fuck's sake.

You know, Dr. Tiller's operating credo for women's reproductive health issues was "Trust women," and a certain subset of "everyday Americans" didn't like that one bit.

They don't like much in general.

My very Catholic mother watched the Palin Girlz interview on Oprah last week and said that she felt bad for Bristol. She thought it was ridiculous and humiliating that a young woman with a child was being forced to publicly declare abstinence until marriage because it fed into her mother's political agenda. Moms also thought that it would be a hard promise to keep and wished Bristol luck living her life for her loony mother.

+1 for Moms

Duh, it's spelled womyn, Sarah.

"Bristol has also been challenged by pro-abortion 'women's rights' groups who don't agree with her decision to have her baby …"

So pro-choice groups are mad a Bristol for not aborting her baby? Really?

Hey, Sarah, here's tip on how YOU can "gain ground and credibility with everyday Americans." Stop characterizing your opponents' arguments in such an obviously, commically false manner.

Entertainment Tonight had a bit where Levi Johnston commented on Sarah and Bristol's appearance on Oprah and I had an epiphany– Sarah Palin is a WWE Friday Night Smackdown character who has been loosed into the real world. This all needs to end in the ring. Or the cage!

I'm sure she'll be guest hosting RAW soon enough.
