Comments: Some Parts of the Candidates' Lives are None of Our Business

Good point. I was thinking about this today and continue to be stunned by the convenient hypocrisy on the left. Not only are they willing to forgo the "it's just about sex" when it involves a Republican, they're willing to go after a teenage family member as well.

Now it's getting worse because Democrat operatives have sunk to leaking Sarah Palin's Social Security Number and address. SSNs are not a matter of public record, and in fact, leaking this information is against Alaska law. So if the folks involved are Alaska Democrats, somebody should be going to jail for violation of identity theft law.

Until Clinton was dragged through the mud, I think in modern politics it wasn't anybody's business who did what where.

After that, liberals feel like what's good for the goose is good for the right foot.

Though I should point out that Obama has clearly stated family is off limits.

And during the founder's time, NOTHING was off limits.

Pam -- I come here to try to get a new perspective on things. I really do. And I actually agree with much in your article. What I don't understand is how and why you throw around the word "feminism", and then quote someone who is not a feminist, then declare feminism dead. Sally Quinn? Not a feminist; she doesn't identify as one, and those who do don't consider her one. (This isn't the first time you've done this either!) In fact, on the feminist blogs that actually identify as feminist, what you see are a lot of people decrying Palin's anti-choice/ab-only sex ed/no birth control/Christianist policies, while at the same time pointing out how crappy and sexist it is that the MSM is questioning her ability to be VP because of her family choices.

Not to mention, of course, that PALIN CONSIDERS HERSELF A FEMINIST!

Dang it, all that effort, and I commented on the wrong thread. Sorry.
