Response to typhoid mary (Reply #78)

93. Actually, when it first came out that the new nominee's 18 year old daughter was unmarried and

pregnant, there were very few jokes that I saw. Before ANYONE on the left made a critical comment, Palin's team had already proactively had blasted them for daring to criticize a young girl who was doing the right thing by not having an abortion.

When there were jokes, it was years later, like Letterman's - that he apologized for - it was after she had the baby and there was the whole very public saga between her and the baby's father. I wish that the media had left her alone - completely. Including no DWTS, no star turns on a reality show of teen moms, no huge contract to speak of abstinence - just privacy so she could grow up. The fact is the right made her, like her mom, a star - and unlike her mom, who was a governor and VP nominee, she had done absolutely nothing that should have given her these things.

I don't see her as an innocent victim - she played for the publicity and made money off of it.
