Like vampires suddenly shown a cross, so-called Progressives have hissed and clawed in impotent rage since John McCain picked Sarah Palin as his running mate. They’ve floated all sorts of rumors about her and resorted to slander to try to dent her genuine popularity. They’ve even gone after her family. Now those who fear her for her religion have used her daughter’s pregnancy to slam her for favoring abstinence-only sex education in the schools. The implication is that she’s some sort of Christian Right hypocrite who would rather girls get pregnant or contract a venereal disease than let them be taught about contraception.
Except that isn’t true.
It’s amazing what a meltdown one woman can cause. Maybe the liberal, tolerant Left should stop and take a breath.
