What is really news these days?

Apparently, it's the fact that Sarah Palin's teenage daughter is pregnant. Oh, and that Jamie Spears has sent her a gift. Oh, and that her Boyfriend will be attending the Republican Convention with the family.

I can't belive that this is news worthy. Yes, her daughter is pregnant. Does that affect her ability to do her job? No... Does that make her a failure as a mother? No. Is it really any of our business? No!

I really could care less that her daughter is pregnant, or that she has 5 kids. What I care about is her ability to do the job (be it Governor of Alaska or VP of the US). I care about what she will do for the people in the position she's been elected to.

There... I've said my piece.

I totally agree!

Aside from the irrelevance factor in what the media is reporting as news, I have been really disturbed by some of the attacks that reveal just how much of a double standard still exists (eye-opening for sure!).

I'm still waiting for someone to ask Obama whether he can handle being President and having young children at the same time without neglecting his family... oh yeah, no one asks *men* things like that. >:(
