Lisa Bloom OK's personal attacks on Obama's Children.

Howard Kurtz - A Blogger, a Baby, a Cry of Concern - washingtonpost.com:

"It is hardly unusual for a teenage girl to become pregnant, and unless she is Jamie Lynn Spears, who sold her baby pictures to OK! magazine, the news value is minimal. But some media commentators say Palin is fair game, not just because she is running for national office but because she is a self-described 'hockey mom' who told the nation that her eldest son is headed to Iraq.

'Once she's brought her children in as selling points, unfortunately the bad comes in with the good,' says Lisa Bloom, a Court TV anchor. 'She's integrating her mom quality as a key part of her résumé. We didn't do that in the press; she did that.'"

According to that logic, the fact that Obama let an interview of his family be released, it's A-OK to gossip about his family.

Palin paraded her 17 year old, pregnant, unmarried daughter, Bristol, around the stage at the RNC. (In fact, Sarah Palin’s first child, Track, was born when she had been married about seven months). The abuse of office charges against Sarah Palin.

John McCain, fifth from the bottom of his Naval Academy class of 899 members, and widely known for serial adulteries, married Cindy one month after he divorced his first family. Cindy’s admitted drug addiction and drug thefts. Cindy’s father, Jim Hensley, was convicted of a felony. There are numerous distortions and deceptions in Palin’s and McCain’s speeches .McCain has flip-flopped on issue after issue.

This pair in the White House and their families would provide much fodder for the tabloids .

Such terrible examples for our young people.
