Straight From the Horse’s, um, Mouth

Byron York on the possible appearance of Levi Johnston at the RNC tonight after Sarah Palin’s nomination speech:

If the Obamas had a 17 year-old daughter who was unmarried and pregnant by a tough-talking black kid, my guess is if that they all appeared onstage at a Democratic convention and the delegates were cheering wildly, a number of conservatives might be discussing the issue of dysfunctional black families.

Gee, ya think?!

  1. Double standard indeed. Funny how Cheney never figured out how to put a positive spin on having an out lesbian daughter. Didn’t he just basically try to shove her back into the closet?

  2. Truth be told, if one of the twins would have been pregnant it would have been given a lot of negative attention too. I remember stories about their misbehaviour.

    It is/would have been bad in all three situations though.
