Port Aransas was fun. I got sunburned but they’re mostly gone by now. Better recap will follow at some point in time. But, for now…
I’m feeling a lot better regarding Palin than I did on Friday. Turns out she’s more conservative than I thought especially on abortion and sex education – she supports abstinence-only education, which will prompt an angry rant sometime this week.
And it turns out her 17 year old daughter is 5 months pregnant and will marry the father. I don’t think her daughter is fair game, but it gives a slight “hypocrisy” angle to the abstinence-only education which is enough to give the story legs. As Atrios says, “Policy matters”.
And she hired an attorney today in that trooper scandalish thing. And…well, here’s a list. (was a member of a fringe group wanting a vote on Alaskan secession, did actually support the “bridge to nowhere”)
Anyway, announcing the pick on Friday seemed like a good idea at the time but now it seems like these stories are gonna overshadow the Republican convention.
