    If a party feels like they need to attack an opponent in such a way or his supporters feel so, I think they can only perceive imminent defeat because this is sinking very, very low. It is not a good strategy; in fact it is really pathetic and ridulous. To me it show complete lack of respect and grace. If the candidate is respomsible for it, i would not vote for that person just based on this alone.

    Do you really think that his mom's sex life was a key element of "how he was raised?"

    The most (and only) important factor when deciding who will lead your country are their policies and performance.

    Who cares what his mom did? You aren't voting for her as president.

    #1- nothing is off limits anymore.
    #2 - both parties and media dig stuff up on each other, and or make things up.
    #3 - Just because something negative comes up doesn't mean it came from the opposing party.
    #4 - Doesn't matter to me what his mother did, just like it didn't matter that Jenna and Barbara got into drinking. Or that Sarah Palin's daughter wasn't married when pregnant.
    #5 Realize most of these negative things are for sensationalism and ratings.

    For the most part I agree with what you said. I don't agree with Sarah Palin's daughter for 1 reason and that S.P. is anti sex ed and promotes abstinence and I felt that this was a clear example of why that doesn't actually work. Personally, I don't care if Bristol Palin had 30 kids and I don't think it negatively reflects on SP as a mom just against her stance.

    I totally disagree that her stance conflicted with her daughter.. and NO she wasn't anti-sex ed. She was conservative in her belief of sex ed. And time and again we are shown that MODERN sex education doesn't work.. What it did show me was that Bristol valued life. It showed me she wasn't afraid of Sarah. Her mother knew what she did and though disagreed with Bristol's choices LOVED and SUPPORTED her anyway. I would much rather has seen that then a mom disowning a child, or having an abortion because they are scared what their family will do or think.. It actually showed me how GREAT of a mother Sarah Palin was.

    Well, I'm not going to debate sex ed on here but of course I disagree. I've researched it a lot actually and for first world countries we have an obscene rate of teenage pregnancies and we also start sex ed later than the other countries if we start it at all.

    I also don't give her too much credit for not disowning her daughter. Any loving mother would not do that in my opinion. I guess maybe different areas of the country think differently though. Maybe? I'm not sure. I also would think a loving mother would not shame or scare her daughter into an abortion. That's horrible.
