Leave Her AlonePosted: September 2, 2008
I’m really not an incredibly political person. I’m a registered democrat. And I do vote.
I’ll get as informed as I can before the election, but I can’t get into the entire process as much as some. Which is fine.
Hillary was my girl. Once that went the wrong way, I went looking for a candidate.
I’m not sure I’ve found it yet, but a couple of interesting things going on — for me, anyway.
I love McCain’s pick of Palin. I admittedly don’t know a lot about her, but I like what I’ve heard/read to date. She, to me, represents change a heck of a lot more than Joe Biden does.
But, my point here, based on the title of this post — leave her daughter alone. I turned on CNN tonight to catch up on Gustav and I see ‘breaking political news’ across the screen. Then, Campbell Brown, who I normally love, goes on and on and on about Palin’s daughter’s pregnancy.
It doesn’t matter. It shouldn’t matter. In fact, I hope it actually rallies people around her.
I’m for the media’s rights in most cases. But, cases like this make me embarassed to say I was a journalism major. Of course, what they’re doing now isn’t really journalism.
And, to be balanced here (balanced…there’s a journalistic idea, eh?), Obama’s response to the Palin issue was first class all the way.
Gosh, I don’t feel like my normal self even writing about this, but it’s been bugging me, so there it is.
