The Political Pendulum

Gov. Palin imitates Britney!

One Friday in June, Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin joined the chief of the state prison system on a tour of the Point MacKenzie Correctional Farm, a 90-minute drive north of Anchorage. It was a routine visit but for the presence of the governor’s infant son, Trig.

Palin held her baby in her arms as the warden drove a short distance around the facility, said corrections director Joe Schmidt, who sat next to Palin. A few days later, the governor got a warning from her public safety commissioner that someone had complained that she did not strap Trig into a car seat for the ride.

Palin dismissed the complaint as petty, and the commissioner, whom she appointed, took no formal action. 

Correct me if I am wrong, but didn’t a nation scream out that Britney Spears was a bad mother because she didn’t strap her kids into their safety seats?  Yet when the “elitist media” brings up her recklessness she yells that she is being attacked.  This is the same woman that called Hillary Clinton a “whiner” because Mrs. Clinton complained that the press was being unfair. 

A suggestion to Democrats would be to roll the tape about Palin’s “whiner” comment, about Sen. Clinton, and let Mrs. Clinton go head to head with Palin.  This would neutralize the Palin sensationalism and let the issues of each candidate take center stage.
