    Another round of Republicans on the airwaves cheerfully discussing the sex life of a seventeen year old.

    Really... I'd like to see where you have such quotes...

    I have heard support of her doing the right thing even though it will be difficult and even though she made her poor judgments... Never saw any cheer of a 17 year old having sex or a sex life...

    I guess you should listen to some interviews with Dobson and various evangelicals.

    My favorite comment was the woman who laughed on NPR this morning that she would have preferred if the girl waited til marriage to have sex, but oh, well, kids will be kids.

    Why are they talking about a seventeen year old in this manner on the national airwaves?

    Exactly what I'm talking about. Even the closet McCain supporters are dissing the kid.

    So saying 'kids will be kids' or that kids will make mistakes in terms of choices (including sexual ones) is the same as praising underage sex?

    You're grasping

    Jesus, they are talking about the sex life of an underage girl on the national airwaves. They are using her as a political tool. Imagine if this was your daughter and the entire country was breezily discussing her sex life. They could care less about the girl's well being. Hell, Allie even called her a slut yesterday.

    I didn't say they were praising it, I said they were discussing it cheerfully.

    Did you expect everyone to pretend she wasn't pregnant--hell her own mother announced it. People are jsut using her as an example of issues that have been talked about since before she was even born.

    Ok... but they are not cheerfully discussing it either... they are stating the fact and praising the decision after the poor decisions and actions that led her to where she is now... what do you want them to do, condemn her? Call for her banishment?

    And I don't see anyone brazenly discussing her sex life, only the having a talking point about the situation.... as it is the left-wing attack dogs that have tried to use it as a bash point

    So it's like the John Kerry/Vietnam thing...he brought it up so it's okay to discuss it.

    Okie dokie.
