You want wild; You want edgy; You want a Cynthia McKinney to read over the Cruller and Coffee; You want Mary Mitchell!
Mary Mitchell and Green POTUS candidate Cynthia McKinney will give you a wild, edgy, eyeball popping perspective on anything. McKinney is a 9/11 theorist, demands that the sealed records on the late Tupac Shakur become public, called the impeachment of G.W.Bush, and is a cop hater. Her Congressional District tossed McKinney, who was no Zell Miller, and McKinney found a snug fit in the Green Party.
The Chicago Sun Times eight-sixed edgy and wild editor Cheryl Reed when the Chicago newspaper took a seventy degree plunge in sales last year. However, the main mast for edgy, wild, eyeball popping perspective of columnist Mary Mitchell keeps the course.
Today's perspective gins up the hate on a seventeen year old pregnant girl, her family in Alaska and the Republicans ( code for white people). Since it is on Gov.Saraha Palin, GOP V.P. Nominee, that is just ducky with a mongosappy Celtic slang ink slinger with world class pie retention as Mary Mitchell. Mary especially detests the Irish - they livein Mount Greenwood and are racists. Mary hates most white people given the tenor of her columns - I can not remember one that dealt with anything but the theme of race hate. Mary Mitchell understands that white people can not breath without race hate. Fasten your straight jackets you are on Mary Mitchell's bus! Here goes:
"Our beautiful daughter Bristol came to us with news, that as parents we knew would make her grow up faster than we had ever planned. We're proud of Bristol's decision to have her baby and even prouder to become grandparents," Sarah and Todd Palin said in a statement released Monday.
When an unmarried 17-year-old girl comes up pregnant on the South Side of Chicago, Republicans don't make it sound like a beautiful thing.
They call it tragic and a moral failure, and they often blame the teen's parents.
There's no way to put a positive spin on a teen in this kind of trouble.
Indeed, teenage pregnancies rose by 3 percent between 2005 and 2006, the first increase since 1991, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
Unfortunately, leaders like Palin are part of the problem.
When she was running for governor in 2006, Palin said she would fund abstinence-only programs and that "explicit sex-ed programs" would not get her support.
But studies have proven that abstinence-only programs alone don't work.
Given her daughter's predicament, Palin might want to rethink her position.
Although it sounds nice that Bristol will be marrying the "young man" who fathered her child, the fact of the matter is marriage is hard work for adults, let alone a teenager.
And when 17-year-old girls decide to throw caution to the wind and risk their sexual health by having unprotected sex, then they haven't been paying attention to the messages adults have been sending.
But Palin, who is being touted as the down-to-earth candidate who can appeal to the working class, sounded like any other politician when she talked about her daughter's "news."
"Bristol and the young man she will marry are going to realize very quickly the difficulties of raising a child, which is why they will have the love and support of our entire family," Palin said.
This is not good news, nor is it something the average woman wants to deal with, especially in the public arena.
Palin should have acknowledged the disappointment and pain any mother feels when she learns her teenage daughter has stumbled onto this tough road.
But Palin hid behind scripted words and blew the chance to have an honest dialogue about a problem that affects Republicans and Democrats alike.
Still, some good can come from all of this after all.
Conservatives like Palin have been hard on young, unwed, pregnant women in urban areas.
Maybe now that she is in the same boat, they'll show a little more compassion.
Yep, a private matter of family of five living in Alaska is all about race!
Malarkey is an Irish word, Mary. So is Bollocks. Your work Mary is a consistent Air Biscuit!
\Senator Obama says that he is 'offended' by anyone who would attempt to capitaliaze on this private and personal matter regarding the children of a candidate - but then again, Mary Mitchell wonders if Barack is 'black enough!'
You feeling Mary, Senator? She worried last August that Barack Obama was not 'black enough'
Are Barack and Michelle Obama black enough?" ( Well, who is?)

Michelle Obama, the wife of Sen. Barack Obama, grew up in a working-class family on the South Side. She attended Chicago Public Schools, went to Princeton, became a lawyer and married her husband before giving birth to her daughters. In her words, she did exactly what black leaders told her to do. So while the question of whether her husband, who is of mixed race, is "black enough" to win over the majority of black voters keeps popping up, his brown-skinned wife knows this isn't a new battle.
"The truth of the matter is that as I was growing up, talking too proper, going to certain schools, people told me that...there is a part in which we are still struggling as a people with what is black," Michelle Obama told me.
Mary Mitchell makes Cynthia McKinney seem like Cindy McCain. You get paid, fair play to you Mary! It is what is left of the Sun Times money and they can toss anyway they wish - and they do!
