I tried to keep my mouth shut.

So I really try hard to keep politics and my views on political stuff off here. But sometimes I just can't keep my mouth shut. And after hearing SO many people praise Sarah Palin this weekend, I am more than happy to burst her little bubble. First off, it doesn't matter to me if you were a beauty queen, basketball player, or possess the ability to fire a gun? Because what does any of that have to do with your ability to run a country? Nothing! Just because she's a woman doesn't mean I am going to vote for her ticket because I would still be voting for McCain! They still stand for a lot of issues that I am COMPLETELY against. I'd still rather have men running this country than any woman who believes in everything I don't.

And I'm not exactly Lindsay Lohan's biggest fan, but today she hit the nail on the head and I must give her props. Today, she wrote about how everything in the news is about Sarah Palin and her daughter's pregnancy and how she thinks it's whack that SP is bringing attention to her daughters pregnancy rather than what she can do for the US of A. I don't really care that SP is pro-life and therefore her daughter is going to have this child. I actually don't care at all. Why does she think I do? I think the blame of issues like this lies with the parents. Because I believe that a caring, supportive parent who loves as well as disciplines their child is the best way to take preventative measures against issues such as this. Talk to your kids about the consequences of being sexually active at a young age and provide them with the protection.

And like Barack Obama said "Let me be as clear as possible, I think people's families are off-limits, and people's children are especially off-limits. This shouldn't be part of our politics. It has no relevance to Gov. Palin's performance as governor or her potential performance as a vice president." DO WORK SON!

Many kudos to Lindsay Lohan and many others for calling John McCain on his bullshit.

I was going to post about my lovely weekend today. But this seemed more important. So tomorrow I will post some real goodies.

I too give props to Lindsay for saying what she said on her blog today. I too was shocked to hear her take on things. (And more shocked that I agreed with her!)

Also, I have to give props to my boy OBAMA! I think he was genius in the way that he handled all this prego daughter business. He could have exploited this bit-o-fun all the way to the presses, but instead he handled it maturely - just the way a president should.

I agree with you 100%, I also LOVE how she is quick to say her daughter will be marrying her boyfriend. Really, really? That has SP public relations written all over it, with her conservative views and supporters it is the only way to "salvage" her image.

PS - You should put a link into Lindsay's blog post!
