My posts about Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin are attracting enough attention from people who don’t like her based on Palin Derangement Syndrome and lies, lies, lies that I realized I was going to have to do a ton of work to de-bunk the lies and provide the truth. Then I spotted someone visiting from a group of links this blog was in on June 15 at Instapundit regarding Gov. Palin and David Letterman’s second sham apology that day. Come to find Dr. Socks already has done it.
So, please visit Dr. Socks at Reclusive Leftist for a de-bunking of most of the current lies about Gov. Palin. Read her full post here. The following is her introduction:
Here’s Sarah Palin on contraception and sex ed:
“I’m pro-contraception, and I think kids who may not hear about it at home should hear about it in other avenues. So I am not anti-contraception. But, yeah, abstinence is another alternative that should be discussed with kids. I don’t have a problem with that. That doesn’t scare me, so it’s something I would support also.”
I put that right at the top of the post so you wouldn’t miss it.
This is worth repeating: Gov. Palin supports contraception and sex education.
Oh, and here’s another bit of truth worth remembering for anyone who slams Bristol Palin for getting pregnant out-of-wedlock in 2008 at the age of 17. Obama’s mother, Stanley Ann Dunham, became pregnant with Obama out-of-wedlock when she was 17. She married the baby’s father about five months after becoming pregnant (I’m too tired right now to look up the exact timeline) but the marriage should not be considered legal because Obama, Sr., was already married to a wife who was living in his native country of Kenya.
