46. Slippery Slope Time
There is no political gain for the Democrats to TRUMPET this scandal...and anyone who dares to take advantage will get hammered by both the repugnican spin/slime machine and its corporate media toadies.

The story develoved in the blogosphere and it forced Gramps hand...and I give props to those who did the digging, asked the questions and forced this matter to be addressed. And I strongly encourage even more investigating...not about the children but of the motives of the parents and the hypocrisy of both the GOOP and its religious puppetmasters.

There were those here who showed "concern" that we not even discuss this matter...accusing anyone who asked a question as to trying to slime the family. That isn't the issue...it's the judgement of the parents about using their children as pawns for their own political careers and the use of this female stalking horse to cynically exploit the legacy and hard work of Hillary Clinton and others who did put the cracks in the glass ceiling that Sarah Barracuda is trying to exploit.

I'm not against those of us here in the blogosphere to keep hammering on this...and now there's a real fire, not a rumor. But I don't want to see this taken by Democrats to pile on this irrational and utterly dispicable pick for the second highest office in the land...one 72-year old heartbeaat from the nuclear football.

Yes, we, as in the bloggers and posters, should use the hypocrisies here and continue to ask questions of judgement about the ambitions of the Palins and Camp Gramps, not the children. I was disgusted how little Trig is being used as a prop (see the People magazine cover) and attempt to use this failure of the parents and of its fundie agenda (homeschooling, abstinence education, attempts to eliminate sex education, birth control and a woman's right to choose) to gain sympathy.

Plus now this opens the door into other Palin cover-ups...Troopergate and her Bridge to Nowhere flip-flop and why did Camp Gramps not come forward at the outset of rushing Palin's name out and only now, while a hurricane threatend to flood NOLA again and how this disclosure was put out when so many aren't paying attention...call it a Gustav newsdump. I still haven't seen a network talk about it...and in the fucked up world of the 24/7 news cycle it will fall beneath the radar.

This story proves there's more there there...keep digging, keep asking, keep posting.

My response isn't to those who want to downplay this matter, but to those who played net nannies and concern trolls about even discussing matters regarding the Palin's parenting and what I will say is abuse of their children.
