SHEA-PORTER SPOKESWOMAN CALLS PALIN’S DOWN SYNDROME BABY A PROP
CONCORD – A paid staffer for U.S. Rep. Carol Shea-Porter’s re-election campaign has accused Alaska Governor and Republican Vice-Presidential nominee Sarah Palin of using her special needs infant a “prop.” Six-month old Trig Palin has Down Syndrome.
“Barack Obama would fire a member of his staff for making that sort of offensive comment about Governor Palin’s infant child, and Congresswoman Carol Shea-Porter ought to consider doing the same,” said Fergus Cullen, chairman of the New Hampshire Republican Party. “Imagine the outrage on the left if a Republican made a similar comment about the Obama children.”
“Susan Bruce, left-wing activist, can say whatever offensive things she wants. But Susan Bruce is a spokeswoman for Congresswoman Carol Shea-Porter. For Shea-Porter to tolerate that sort of despicable comment from a member of her paid staff says a lot about Shea-Porter’s judgment,” Cullen said.BACKGROUND: Bruce’s full quote is found at http://www.politickernh.com/brianlawson/4112/palin-visit-dover-high-school#comment (posted October 12, 2008).
Middle America Values
posted by Susan Bruce
If Sarah Palin has middle America values, I'm glad I live in elitist northern NH. I don't think that making women pay for rape kits the police use to gather evidence on their bodies after a rape is a value we should be proud of. I don't think that putting a scarlet letter on your own teenaged and throwing her to the wolves in front of the whole world is something to be proud of. I don't think that using a special needs baby as a prop on late night TV appearances is a value to crow about. I don't think that preaching hate, and encouraging racism, fear, and violence at campaign rallies is something to be proud of.
If those are the things we value in Middle America, I want no part of it.
