Palin's Kid Isn't a Republican

By jeannesager |

sarahpalinIt looks like teenage rebellion runs high in the Palin family. First the abstinence-touting family’s teen daughter gets pregnant, now their son comes out . . . as “not a Republican.”

Technically it was the former governor (oh, that’s so fun to say, isn’t it?) who let loose that son Track, who is serving in the U.S. military is registered as “non-partisan” (I think she means an independent). And he’s not the only member of the Palin family to go rogue.

The former vice-presidential nominee (yes, I’m liking the word former in relation to Sarah Palin) has admitted her husband is also “non-partisan,” although in his case, he was a member of that ultra-conservative group the Alaska Independence Party (remember, the one that wanted the state to secede so they could watch over Russia alone?).

So chances are, Track Palin could be as conservative as his parents. Then again, maybe not.

A study released late last month from the Pew Research Center revealed the widest generation gap since the sixties. The eighteen-to-twenty-nine-year-olds voted liberal (for Obama) by a two-to-one ratio, and almost eight in ten people “believe there is a major difference in the point of view of younger people and older people today.” That’s the largest gap since ’69, the year of Woodstock, the moon walk and the summer of peace, love and not getting along with The Man . . . or Mom and Dad.

I’d like to think my kid will agree with me on all the major issues, that she’ll hold firm to the belief system we’re setting her up with. But chances are she’ll be even more liberal than me. Isn’t that progress?

Of course, as Sarah Palin is accustomed to keeping us aprised of the color of her kids’ snot, expect to be hearing another gangbuster any day now. Perhaps Willow Palin lets her boy dolls sleep in the same box?

    All this “my kid’s not even a Republican,” and “I might go campaign for conservative Dems,” is Sarah flexing her fundraising muscle and warning the Republicans that are rejecting her of how much star power she has. Yawn.

    Can anyone real tell me that you were impressed by her exit speech? You can’t real believe that she is the only person that can win in 2012. You know, if she can’t take a joke, don’t get in the game, its politics, they all get kicked around. Let me paint you a picture, in my opinion, for the last eight years where the mantra was no regulation and no oversight and spread to all federal agencies and the justice department was filled by unqualified religious types and the dullard (ex-drunk) religious president started two wars of choice with extreme tax dollar spending, is anyone surprised with our current economic situation because of those choices. Sure “W” sucker the religious right to vote for him and that’s why he placed unqualified people in positions of responsibility and they failed (almost a “plan to fail”), do you forget Katrina, where the Director of FEMA Michael D. Brown, was relieved of his duties because of incompetence? Or can you forget disgraced White House correspondent James Guckert, AKA Jeff Gannon, the male escort, why was a male escort getting into the Whitehouse, hmmm? I know it was Barney Frank’s fault, he controls the county and republicans had their hands tied (even though 7 of the last 8 years they had the majority and the presidency to do something (fact or fiction?), but not the will to act). Oh, by the way I read that God blog, very funny, it reminds me of those TV evangelists who claim the talk to God and want so and so foreign country leader to be killed or such and such a us state to be punished by God for a court ruling that intelligent design is just another word for religion. We had enough of religious dullards in our government. If you believe that the USA has strayed from God then go out to your communities and preach to your neighbors, the sick, the shut ins, the poor and invite them to take part in your church, build a community. But I know that’s hard work we want a government official to do that for us, well they tried that and look where it left us, in the gutter, but our country does not quit and we will rise again. Do you remember how Ronald Reagan got us out of a recession? By spending and we will do the same. But she is just another “W” in heels and she is stringing the religious right along, she will sell you her books, her radio/TV shows and speaking engagements. Lastly, I do not want you to believe what I believe, so please keep writing, feel free, I am starting to enjoy this.
