Our featured pack hound: Truthdig

Let's take a feature look at another member of the liberal blog pack that is now hounding the Palin's because of their daughter's out-of-wedlock pregnancy. The folks at "Truthdig: Drilling Beneath the Headlines" offer their reason why the dogs should be set upon the poor girl and her family:
Normally we try not to pay too much attention to what’s happening to the wombs of America’s teenagers, but Bristol Palin, 17, happens to be the daughter of John McCain’s VP pick. Sarah Palin thinks the government should meddle in the reproductive health of women, but in the case of her daughter, she asks for privacy.

Here we have another “family values” candidate who ought to spend some time worrying about her own family instead of judging ours.
Has Palin been going around publicly scolding the parents of other girls who have gotten pregnant without the benefit of marriage, and advocating that the government get involved in it? If so, we somehow missed that. As a matter of policy, Palin has opposed abortion because it results in the death of an unborn child, but we can't recall her ever, like her current opponents, targeting any individual family who has to make that decision.

Her behavior is perfectly in keeping with her beliefs.

Nothing Palin has done compares with what her critics are now engaged in. They'll realize it once the frenzy of the hunt is over.

Palin has more problems than being a hypocrite when it comes to abortion, life, and family planning.

LOL - a modern-day Jeff Davis is our Republican VP candidate. (Of course, this is a plus in KY.)

Very interesting, Art. I'm sure even Martin would agree that its appropriate to ask Ms. Palin why she belonged to a group which wanted a vote on leaving the U.S.! If this is true, how could Palin have failed to disclose it to McCain's vetters? And if McCain knew, how could he have selected her as his VP nominee?
