Campbell Brown Attacks McCain Aides video from <a href="" mce_href="">CNN Video</a>
I just want to say the aides who are attacking Sarah Palin are the most unprofessional people in the world. They are just developing excuses to save their own skin for a future job.

As a handler, spokesperson, etc. you are exposed to many things and you never, ever allow that to get out in the public. But they are going one-step further, manufacturing things. As Campbell Brown reiterated, CNN has already been able to disprove several of the claims.

I think Campbell Brown nails it in this comment.

Some people just need to grow up, accept responsibility and move on to the next job.

Obama – Biden Kings of the Earmarks

In this time of trying to be fiscally responsible, the Barack Obama and Joe Biden ticket are the kings of earmarks.
Since he joined the Senate, Obama has requested $860 million in earmarks. When NBC asked the campaign to disclose how many earmarks Biden had requested, they refused.

Earlier this year during the campaign, Joe Biden disclosed that he had requested $342 million in earmarks this year alone.

Sarah Palin?  She has requested earmarks also, but not that much.  As mayor of Wasila she received $27 million and as governor received over $400 million, scaling back their requests over the tenure of her term as governor.

Now, earmark crusader John McCain. How much has he requested in earmarks? $0! Zero!

For Obama to criticize the McCain – Palin for not being fiscally responsible is just plain wrong. Obama-Biden are two of the biggest abusers of the use of earmarks in the U.S. Senate.

Check out the video.

Assistant Principal at Wasilla High School says it best…

This appeared in the Chicago Tribune. I found it through The Page Blog on Time.

“I’m sorry to hear this, but I have every confidence they have the abilities and the confidences handle this,” he said.

“Just like children should not pay for the sins of the parents. The parents should not pay for the transgressions of the children.”

-Mark Okeson, the assistant principal at Wasilla High School

I think that says all we need to know about the Palin’s.

Liberals are applying a double-standard to Palin and family

I just want to say that I am disappointed by a lot of liberals today and the media how they are exploiting the announcement today by the Palin’s that there older daughter is pregnant.
On Twitter, Claire Celsi has a post that says, “if you are listening..seriously, now might be a good time to focus on your own family instead of running for VP.”

It all goes back to the rumor started by Andrew Sullivan of which said that Palin claimed she was pregnant to cover up her daughters pregnancy; her son, Trig, was actually Bristol’s son.

Sullivan is also calling for the McCain campaign to release the medical records that show that Sarah Palin actually gave birth. Give me a break!  

These are the same group of people who are advocating for privacy are now asking for Palin to give up hers just for their kicks to see if she really gave birth.

A mother and professional women should be able to choose whether she will work, whether she will have a career, or whether she will stay home with her family. As a father and a husband, I would do whatever I could to support my wife in her endeavors, whatever she would decide to do.

It just amazes me that liberals and feminists are so out to get Palin that they will try and taint her as a bad mother because she wants to be Vice President while almost electing a woman to run for the Presidency.  

This is a double standard that is just plain stupid.

In another instance, Alan Colmes attacked Palin because of her prenatal care, questioning whether she took the right care when she was pregnant with Trig. This is just horrible and totally wrong. Colmes has removed his post, but Kim Priestap of Wizbang captured a screenshot before that happened.

Things happen in a family and a family must deal with them.  As with all previous elections and Presidencies, the kids are off limits. The media has done a good job with this, but the blogosphere has not.

The blogosphere should leave all personal family matters of all politicians alone.

Update: Kennedy, Clinton and Bush each had children living in the White House while they were President. No one ever questioned their parental skills and not devoting enough time to the family. Palin shouldn’t be questioned either because she has chosen to run for Vice President.
