I am a sick puppy

It's 20 past one and I am sitting at my computer, gleefully reading all of the theories about Sarah and Bristol Palin and her boyfriend, Levi Johnston.

Several bloggers have called Rednick Levi "sex on skates."  I admit there's a quality in that hockey mugshot that reminds me of Rob Lowe in Youngblood.  I've been known to drool over a hockey player or two in my life.  Still, he's a kid and apparently had to get rid of his Myspace page that said he was "in a relationship" but that he "does not want children." 


(HA!  I just found out that in 1980 Rob Lowe starred in an After School Special called "Schoolboy Father."  How appropriate!)

Levi ther Redneck also listed on his Myspace that he likes snowboarding and f*#$&% chillin.  

The direct quote is: 
“I’m a f**kin’ redneck who likes to snowboard and ride dirt bikes. But I live to play hockey. I like to go camping and hang out with the boys, do some fishing, shoot some sh*t and just f**kin’ chillin’ I guess. Ya f*ck with me I’ll kick ass.”

His pictures showed some underage drinking going on.  Apparently there was some of that on Bristol's page too.  Didn't McCain's people think to look there?  I mean, most hiring managers will check Myspace to see if potential employees are potheads or internet whores.  When the candidate has teenaged kids, you check their names too.  Geez.  I wish I'd thought about searching myspace for them the other day!  

Oh and when interviewed, his mom said that he's not in school anymore.  Interesting.  He's already been picked up and is being brought to Minnesota to be there on stage with Bristol tomorrow night.  I guess she won't have to hold Trig and be covered up by the big blankie anymore.

How long before an engagement ring appears on her hand?

Eh, I don't see how this makes Palin unfit to be VP. So he's a redneck kid who likes to fuckin chill. Horrors! There was underaged drinking.

That's being a teen. That doesn't bother me. Bristol being pregnant doesn't bother me. Palin being pro-life and conservative and Bristol being pregnant doesn't bother me.

Palin being conservative bothers me, but completely outside of her family.

She's unfit to be VP because she has so little political experience, none on the national level and McCain is old. No one wants her to be president and when you consider his age and health and her lack of experience, electing them becomes a very scary thing.

All the family drama is icing on the cake and just holds her up to be a bad mother and hypocritical.

Would you throw your daughter under a bus and subject her to media scrutiny to feed your own ambition? Would you leave a five month old, Downs Syndrome baby among family members to campaign for two months?

I abhor people who set themselves up as a role model when all evidence points to the contrary. Today alone there has been story after story, some about her family, true, but more about her political life and history and it's not good.

I don't think it's fair that male politicians have their dirty laundry aired and no one thinks about their children but some people are up in arms crying sexism over this.

Don't get me wrong, I do not support Palin politically. She and I couldn't be more opposed.

But family drama is always there, and it's just taking away from the issues that are actually important.
