Apparently you miss that there is something totally hilarious about a candidate who claims that "abstinence only" education works, and who was a governor who actively opposed any sex education at all in the schools, having a knocked-up daughter. To me it is an obvious joke on this woman, who wants to push her religious beliefs down everyone's throat using the law. Anyone who wants to argue against it merely has to point at Palin and her daughter for a good example of what is going to happen if we put people like her in power, knocked up teenagers with no access to abortion, like the world I grew up in. Maybe if the hockey captain dumps her she can get herself a good ole coathanger abortion and die in a nice back alley somewhere, and the joke will be complete.
Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.
