Obama's "New Politics" is a Sewer

There has been a lot of hoo-ha over the pregnancies of Sarah Palin and her daughter, Bristol. I haven't been paying much attention to it, seeing it as a typical Democrat dirty tricks whispering campaign -- yes, Obama has denounced the rumours, but also issued a Clintonesque non-denial denial regarding involvement of his campaign in stoking the rumors ("there is no evidence..."). There is an excellent and sensitive discussion of the issues involved over at the Anchoress [here].

She asks: "How much do you have to love your hate in order to surrender your reason, and your humanity, to it?"

Good question!

Nathan Thornburg has a nice, sensitive article on the subject in TIME [here].
