What Bristol Palin’s pregnancy means for the election.

Before I start, I’d like to state that I wish the Palin family well, and that it is unfortunate that truly private, non-political affairs got dragged into the national spot light as a result of a concerted depraved smear campaign.

On the surface, this may seem bad for McCain/Palin. The opposite is true.

In the 2004 election, the far-left thought they’d struck gold when the realized Cheney’s daughter was a lesbian. Bush was against gay-marriage….Cheney’s daughter….lesbian. Time to attack, right? Wrong.

They attacked, and it backfired big time.

Of the whole electorate, the far-left are the least likely to have children – by a fairly wide margin. As is such, many executing such attacks may not realize that children do not always listen to their parents and that no sane person expects them to be clones of their parents. This disconnect allows them to falsely associate disobedience or poor judgement on the part of a child with hypocrisy of the parent.

Because the majority of the electorate is more likely to have children of their own, they are much more likely to perceive this as an unfair attack, and one with no damage value, given that their own kids don’t obey them 100% too.

The current situation is much worse than the lesbian Cheney issue. The far left forced the Palin family to expose a humiliating and private affair to silence depraved smears. Such a scenario won’t just flop as an attack, it will generate large amounts of sympathy, and with the proximity of the Republican Convention, the Republicans are in excellent position to capitalize it.

The far left seems to have no capacity to stop attacking those with whom it disagrees politically. This destructive behavior is ultimately self-destructive – as they attempt to define their opponents, they also define themselves as relentless attackers. You can’t win with an image of being a relentless, heartless smear-artist.

Leave it up to Obama Supporters to humiliate a 17-year old girl in front of the world in order to score cheap political points.

Expect the Obama camp to distance themselves from this like they would an endorsement from Bush.

    Not sure I see a spin here. Unless, of course, you mean that the Obama camp rushed to its predictable, crass, execrable position almost instantaneously and it wasn’t true.

    But, then, who’ll report this? Will the OMSM, either broadcast or print? Will this make it into any liberal/leftist blogs?

    I agree with CKA in Red State USA.

    Obama is going to stay clear from this area from now on.

    Leave it up to Obama’s biggest cheerleaders to cheer the news:

    This is a plus. As Mark Steyn points out in his recent best seller, America Alone, if our western civilization is demographically to survive in the increasingly “hostile to the west” islamic world — and not end up like the sinking European populations — these are the precise people (the Bristol Palins’) we should thank for increasing their progeny.

    obama’s distancing himself, all right. and the msm are talking about how “classy” he’s been in his response to the issue. are they really that clueless that they don’t know we see this as his favorite trick, to have others put out a smear then denounce it when it’s convenient to do so? (rhetorical – imho, we know the msm are aware of what he’s doing. they’re part of his game and gladly playing).

    agree with ted re increased palin progeny being good for the survival of civilization.
