News Blackhole

When asked what I thought of Palin as McCain's running mate I said - "who's that?" After all, I just spent a week in the hospital - and I'm not a huge news person. But I did see an article in the Wall Street Journal about Palin's fitness routine and it said she recently gave birth to her FIFTH CHILD! Wow. She can find time to work out, take care of her kids and run for Vice President. Think she breastfeeds? Clearly I have a one track mind...

Not one to jump on the politics bandwagon ... but it just came out that her 17-year-old daughter is 5 months pregnant...perhaps she should stick to raising her kids. (ouch. bad Nancy.)

Not sure who I like...but I'm definitely leaning toward Obama.

I also don't think that you'd never heard of her just because you were "out of it" for a week...NO ONE has heard of her LOL

No one heard of her, I don't think. But I've heard she is breastfeeding her youngest (born just this April!) and that he has Down's. Rumor has it she went back to work 3 days after the birth.

well, don't be giving credit to anyone else right now. You've given birth to two beautiful kids, welcomed a baby nurse into your home, hauled all their stuff in the house, breastfeed every minute of the day and still find time to blog, who's the real hero now???? - Nat

I read an article where she says "I just put down the blackberrys and pick up the breastpump," so I think she breastfeeds!

Um, yeah, here's a primer to fill you in while you take care of more important business:
*she's a right-wing nutjob. *Opposes abortion even in cases of rape and incest.
*Supports abstinence-only education (worked wonders on her daughter),
*is a global warming denier,
*just last month gave a TV interview where she stated she had no idea what the VP did,
* last month called Hillary a big whiner but now wants her voters,
*and is under formal investigation by the Alaska State Legistlature for abusing her power by firing a public safety commissioner after he refused to fire a state trooper who had divorced Palin's sister.

There's also recent news trickling in that she supported a party platform that advocated Alaska seceding from the Union.

OH, and, can't get enough of Ned and Penny pics!!! Too cute!

All good points E. She's also a homophobe, believes that creationism should be taught in schools, and just got her first passport a year ago.
