In a last ditch effort to win "the women's vote" (to which i lovingly reply 'which women?') John McCain chose Sarah Palin, his teammate in advocating for abstinence only until marriage sex education...
among other anti-choice policies. Now we see, via Gov. Palin's pregnant teen daughter the ways in which those politics are not practical or empowering.
The sad part is that McCain and Palin's politics are getting in the way of this young woman's right to privacy and her own decision making. It strips this young person with a choice- to continue the pregnancy or not.
Either way, it creates yet another shoe-in for Obama/Biden which I love.
I do not love McCain, who clearly thinks that women are stupid in his clear hope that "the women" (aka Hillary supporters) would vote for his ass just because he chose a running mate with a vagina.
Choosing Palin is almost MORE of a body blow to women than choosing another wrinkly white guy to lead the way.
