I'm a little confused. Let me see if I have this straight......
*If you grow up in Hawaii, raised by your grandparents, you're exotic, different!
*If you grow up in Alaska eating mooseburgers, your is a quintessential American story.
*If your name is Barack, you're a radical, unpatriotic Muslim.
*Name your kids Willow, Trig and're a maverick.
*Graduate from Harvard Law School and you are unstable.
*Attend 5 different small colleges before graduating, you're well grounded.
*If you spend 3 years as a brilliant community organizer, become the first black President of the
Harvard Law Review, create a voter registration drive that registers 150,000 new voters, spend 8 years as a State Senator representing a district with over 750,000 people, become chairman of the state Senate's Health and Human Service committee, spend 4 years in the United States Senate representing a state of 13 million people while sponsoring 131 bills and serving on the Foreign Affairs, Environment and Public Works and Verteran's Affairs committees, you don't have any real leadership experience.
*If you total resume is: local weather girl, 4 years on the city council and 6 years as the mayor of a town with less that 7,000 people, 20 months as a govenor of a state with only 650,000 people, then you're ualified to become the country's second-highest-ranking executive and next in line behind a man in his eighth decade.
*If you have been married to the same woman for 19 years while raising 2 beautiful daughters, all within Protestant churches, you are not a real Christian.
*If you cheated on your first wife with a rich heiress, and then left your disfigured wife and married the heiress the next month, you are a true Christian.
*If you teach responsible, age-appropriate sex education, including the proper use of birth control, you are eroding the fiber of society.
*If, while governor, you staunchly advocate abstinence only, whith no other option in sex education in your state's school system while your unwed teen daughter ends up pregnant, you are a very responsible person.
*If your wife is a Harvard graduate lawyer who gave up a position in a prestigious law firm to work for the betterment of her inner-city community, then gave that up to raise a family, your family's values don't represent America's.
*If your husband is nicknamed "First Dude", with at least one DWI conviction and no college education, we didn't register to vote until age 25 and once was member of a group that advocated the secession of Alaska from the USA, your family is extremely admirable.
