If I may be the logic police for a second:
Saying that a single failure within the group of people who advocate abstinence only is like pointing to a single herpes transmission despite condom use to fail. It's pretty statistically insignificant. Nothing works all the time.
Look, the religious right is NUTS over this Veep pick. NUTS. Dobson himself said over the weekend that McCain's pick of her now means he can pull the lever for McCain come November... She at least has been hyper-consistent with bearing a child who she knew, in utero, had Downs Syndrome. And now they do the good Christian thing and support their pregnant child.
Palin has skeletons in her closet having to do with abuse of power, or so I'm assuming given recent reports. And those could come back to haunt the GOP.
But in other news, here's a great satire by former Clinton Administration official (Sec of Defense, IIRC?) Richard Cohen:
Republicans Rush In
Money humor quote:
Still, you have to admit that in all that time, especially since Palin became governor about two years ago, no Russian invasion force has come across the strait, maybe because she was in charge of the Guard, maybe because she herself is a hunter and an athlete. The record is unclear because no high-ranking Russian appeared on any of the weekend talk shows to say how they had considered an invasion of Alaska and then backed off when Sarah Palin became commander in chief of the Alaska National Guard. Who could blame them?
