    This is 2008, and being a teacher I understand that teenagers ages 14-18 are having sex no matter what you may think your child is/does. I, am realistic, and think that teaching safe sex in schools DOES NOT promote it, but does give these teens some education about it, though I respect that some don't agree.

    BUT, not only does John McCain put a VP on the ticket that has no place being there, but also has consistently said in her 20 months as Governor that the schools should include 2 things in their curriculum: 1 - Abstinence 2 - Creationism

    1) - Her story talks about how she's a mom that has an child with DS and she juggles her work with her home life and has made it work yet her 17 yr old is obviously having unprotected sex and also the fact that she had this child with DS knowingly(I have major respect for that) and also knowing that this kid needs much more attention yet she wants to be VP which means she'll never be able to provide that?

    2) - She wants Creationism taught in schools yet there is absolutely NO proof of this and also incorporates Religion and Public Education which is a completely awful idea and is also directly against the Constitution. (remember, a separation between Church and State, our fantastic fore fathers made that because they knew then it was bad)

    And, after all this, and including her serious lack of experience which, of course, McCain has spent the last 2 months trying to drill Obama on his lack of experience, doesn't show you all the hypocracy of this?

    I just have NO IDEA how people can rationalize this, please explain this too me cause I guess I'm mentally handicapped

    Maybe if you deal with soem solid facts you might be able to understand things.

    1--You have no proof that Palin's daughter had unprotected sex.
    2--She is part of a family that will ALL be able to help each other raise the
    child to include the father.
    3--Why is school teaching sex ed anyway and when did it become their job?
    4-- Where in the constitution does it say "separation ogf church and state"

    It's not as simple as you might think and the real shocker is that you may not be mentally handicapped. Just brainwashed.

    Liberals and moderates believe that teenagers should be discouraged from having sexual intercourse. But liberals and moderates also believe in being totally open and honest about sex, by giving teenagers knowlege and facts that will protect them, including contraceptive choice and sexual responsibility.

    Rightwingers believe in just teaching "abstinence only". Just say no to sex. This is Palin's view


    That facts show in every non-partisan study done, that the Liberal way is more effective at protecting kids.

    1) She's pregnant ain't she?
    2) And this doesn't make her a hypocrite, how?
    3) You could argue that about any subject...hell, why even have schools..
    4) Where does it say in the constitution that church and state are entwined?

    If contraception was perfect we wouldn't be needing abortion laws now would we---think about it.

    she made one comment about teaching creationism in an '06 gubernatorial debate, and then backed down from it

    sex ed should be in schools, republicans who claim otherwise are just naive

    but I don't see how any of this is a knock against her, especially when all the dems who cried about how Clinton was being attacked personally, now have no problem crucifying an innocent 17 year old girl

    What is so naive about keeping sex ed out of schools---I don't like what you wanna teach--you don't like what I wanna teach--How about we both teach our kids at home. If your way fails it sucks for you. If my way fails it sucks for me. I know---socialists love the "one size fits all " concept.

    Who attacked the girl?

    And who exposed her unmarried pregnant 17 year old daughter to the national press?
