Remember David Letterman’s sex “joke” about Sarah Palin’s then-14 year old daughter Willow? Or the demented Trig Palin theories espoused by Dan Savage, et al? Nobody lost their jobs over those appalling attacks on a politician’s minor children.
But hey … judge for yourself. This is what Lauten said on her Facebook page: “Dear Sasha and Malia, I get you’re both in those awful teen years, but you’re a part of the First Family, try showing a little class. At least respect the part you play.” And this is what prompted her remarks.
Personally, I think she had a point and the whole “political kids are off limits” schtick is crap IN THIS INSTANCE. These girls were at a public function, not at a school or family function. If they want to be off limits, they need to stay out of the spotlight.
As for being forced to resign … what the hell?! Lauten’s boss is a jerk for not sticking up for her and telling the liberal shrieking class that an apology was enough and they should go find some actual NEWS to report on … like the debt for instance. Or how Russia now has more nukes than we do. Or how many Americans have been injured and killed in Obama’s War in Afghanistan.
