Republican Neo-Permissiveness

Since when did we, as a nation, as concerned citizens, as parents, lose the capacity to judge babies having babies, to condemn teenagers having unprotected sex?

What will it do to every American mother's and father's ability to discourage their children from having sex before marriage and to insist, failing that, upon proper precautions not just against pregnancy but against deadly sexually transmitted diseases if we rollover to a wave of Republican permissiveness and install the bad example of Bristol and Levi in the White House?

Is it fair to Palin to hold her responsible for her daughter's mistakes?

Certainly not. It is horribly unfair.

But since when has the national interest become secondary to fairness to politicians?

Why is it that nearly all the old photos I'm digging up these days seem to fall under the heading of Dangerous Waters? Was reminded of Bar Harbor, more specifically its many restaurants serving local lobster, by the "Attack of the Cannibal Lobsters"....
