Much Ado Abount Nothing

There has been a lot of talk about McCain's pick of Gov. Palin as his running mate. Most of it has been positive, some has not. Of the negative talk, however, a lot has been focused on Palin's pregnant daughter. This is a total non-issue.

Her daughter got pregnant at 17. These things happen. It isn't right, but once it happens the important thing is how you deal with it. There are several wrong ways to deal with it: abortion, the family abandoning the pregnant child, the father of the baby abandoning the pregnant child, etc. None of that is happening here. The family is very supportive of Bristol, Bristol is set to marry the father of the child, and Bristol is having the child.

If Bristol had an abortion, then there would be a serious issue, but her just being pregnant is completely irrelevant. I guess it is just easier for people to pay attention to than actual issues.
