Flexible Family Values

Isn’t it wonderful that the Palin family has a strong, ambitious mother and a father who took several months out of his career to be a stay at home dad to his kid?

Isn’t it great that the Republicans seem to be admiring all of that?  

Isn’t it great that their reaction to the teen pregnancy issue is “things happen in life, they are dealing with it as a family” or something to that effect?

I’m not being tongue and cheek. I really think it’s great to see Republicans being flexible. I just hope that they will be less sanctimonious the next time they feel like lecturing the REST OF US about how “ambitious career women” are destroying the family and how teen motherhood in black communities is destroying the “moral fabric” of society or whatever.
