Obama Shows Some Class

John McCain's running mate, Alaska Governor Sarah Palin, has revealed that her 17-year-old daughter is pregnant. Mrs. Palin said in a statement her daughter Bristol would keep the child and was to get married.

The trolls of the political world have jumped on this event, using it for cheap political benefit, with the usual gutter blogs demonizing the young girl and her parents. The truth is that there are numerous unplanned, unwanted pregnancies every day, in this new age of sexual permissiveness, a part of the progressive philosophy invading the U.S. since the 60s. Unwanted pregnancies are a plague on our society that attack both conservatives and liberals.

To his credit, Democrat nominee Barack Obama has condemned the left-wing idiocy as “off limits.” “I have heard some of the news on this and so let me be a clear as possible,” Sen. Obama said. “I have said before and I will repeat again, I think people’s families are off limits, and people’s children are especially off limits. This shouldn’t be part of our politics.”

I don’t have many good things to say about Barack Obama, but in this case, he has done himself proud. This is a non-event, in terms of presidential politics.
