WTF

So I keep hearing Republicans -- and now Britney Spears, of all people -- complaining that there's too much media focus on Bristol Palin's pregnancy. What confuses me is that I've seen virtually NO coverage of it. It was mentioned in the early days, but then it seemed to drop off the radar. Admittedly, I don't watch TV, but I read CNN and Yahoo News, and listen to NPR during my commute.

Has anyone actually seen any such coverage, or is this just more of the McCain camp playing Palin as a victim? I guess as long as they portray her that way, they think they can keep people from noticing her astounding ignorance of the issues.

It's a false controversy, as usual. Nobody outside the tabloid rags have been covering it, but in desperate Republican circles, the media is the media.

I have heard nothing about it at all. It seems that the country has something a teeny bit larger to worry about than a bulldog who can't raise her children properly.

This post is shamefully sexist and if you have any decency you will delete it immediately.
