GOP “family values” really means “exploit them for all they’re worth”

During the Republican National Convulsion, Sarah Palin paraded her kids around as if they were the crown and sash she missed winning in 1984.   She has been criticized in particular for choosing to expose her pregnant unmarried teen daughter to worldwide attention and for using her infant son with Down syndrome as a political prop (or football/hot potato, if the footage from the RNC was any indication).

Now come rumors of a pre-election wedding for Bristol Palin and Levi “Baby Daddy” Johnston.

I have no doubt that the McCain campaign is foolish enough and desperate enough to pull a stunt like this, but hopefully, the American public will view it as ridiculous a ploy as McGrumpy’s “I’m suspending my campaign” fake-out last week (McCain’s Suspension Bridge to Nowhere?).

BTW, the average temperature in south central Alaska in October?  34.6-degrees (F).  “It’s a nice day for a white wedding”…with a 6-months’-pregnant bride!
