While I may not be President Obama (had more pressing concerns). I have been moved and touched by Bristol Palin’s plight. Her words of sorrow and her want for justice are things that can make a man think deeply upon. Ms. Palin just wants a little measure of equality, she wants an apology for being mistreated and for her family including her mom. Thinking deeply on these things I have decided to apologize to Ms. Palin.
Let me go ahead and apologize first for your decision to become a single mother. Even though you have access to health care tools such as birth control or condoms you ended up getting pregnant.I apologize that having been brought up in a pious household you were never properly taught about the proper use of birth control. Even then the choice to become a single mother was ultimately yours and I apologize that the veil of righteousness had blinded you in such a way that never once did you think that an abortion could have also stopped you entering the world of single motherhood.
I am deeply sorry and regret that you cannot see the irony in your very own words about how the President does not care for single mothers.. yet at the same time it is your brethren who are the first ones casting stones. Take for example your “conservative pals” in Wisconsin passing legislation that would cast you as being a child abuser for being a single mom. I am sorry Bristol that you cannot see the double standard in that you are asking the world to pity you for being a single mom yet you hate your kindred (including good ole mom) despises single moms everywhere. Bristol I am so sorry that you being a child of privilege took no steps to take care of yourself during intercourse, took no accountability in dealing with the problem and turned down a very legal and accessible avenue to you, for that I apologize.
As for your family you mentioned Good Ole mom being slandered because of your brother with Down Syndrome. Well I apologize that you dear Mom Ms. Sara Palin paraded your younger brother as a campaign prop for sympathy from Christian voters. I am also sorry that your mom completely ignored the risks of a pregnancy at her age and that when told that her son would have Down Syndrome (because yes thanks to Medical Science it can be known). That she decided to go on an bring a child to the world to suffer the fate because of her pious vanity. I am sorry Bristol that your mother was only thinking only about her selfish endeavors. I apologize that she made the choice to keep a child she knew would be afflicted with a “congenital defect”.
Bristol I think that you truly deserve this apology. Even though you are a child of privilege who basically chose her own path against rationality. I apologize. But I think the largest apology that we the people of the United States owe you is that in reality we are truly sorry that you happen to be the daughter of Sarah Palin.
