Maybe there are all these pictures of them because they were taking vacations at various places across the country.

Before you go and criticize Palin and having her kids you might want to make sure your guy didn't do the same thing.

Just for the road here is one of them in Iowa, guess they were just there for the corn
It was summer. Chicago is not on year-round schools that I know of.

And I guess you missed this post of mine, this morning:

I also think that women candidates get more attention paid to their looks, their clothes, and their parenting than men do. This is bi-partisan. Many "liberal" women jouralists defended her clothe shopping. Slate magazine had an excellent article about this at the time.
"She" refers to Sarah Palin.

Im responding to the comment about Palin bringing her kids on the campagin trial when Obama did the same thing. They could have been out of school, that doesn't mean they weren't on the campaign trail with him as is pretty obvious.

Thats fine, if they want their kids with them who am I to judge. I just want to inform those who seem to have a double standard when it comes to that issue.

I'm not saying you were, there was a post that mentioned it so I brought up President Obama's children. Though I HATE talking about their kids as I feel they should be left alone to grow up with some sense of normalcy.

As far as kids on the trail, I think it would be a cool experience for them. Not many get to take part in the political process like that and it would be a first hand experience for them. That's my opinion though.

Or, it could have never started if a scumbag liberal like Letterman had had the common decency to have not attacked the kids. Who is at fault here? Hint: not the one who was attacked.

Using her kids to draw fire and create attention is kind of crappy, though, if you really want my opinion. As a mother, she should be more considerate than that.
Well, if it is your belief, it must be the absolute truth; you are never wrong about anything (in your own mind).

As I stated in a previous post, remember that her kids were attacked by Letterman, for no reason other than his being a scumbag liberal who makes "jokes" that are in such poor taste. Now you attack her for defending her kids. What a family guy you are!

Or is it only Republicans and their kids who are fair game while Democrats' kids can never be touched?

The Obamas kept their children in school during the campaign.

The Palin children were marched onstage at every opportunity to be used as human billboards when in fact they had nothing whatever to do with the campaign and shouldn't have been there during the week skipping school.

I'm not defending Letterman, any more than I would defend Rush Limbaugh for attacking Chelsea Clinton. I really don't see a lot of difference. Off color is off color and attacking a child is out of bounds. It is not a democrat/republican thing as you seem to want to make it.

That said, if Sarah wanted privacy she should have practiced a lot more discretion in the way her children were handled. Putting them out front is asking for commentary.
