“There needs to be an adult in the house”

(4/7/09) "There needs to be an adult in the house." Arguably, never has nine words uttered by a politician turned out so very hollow.

Those words spoken by Governor Sarah Palin back in June of 2007 when she vetoed money from the capital budget, should be equally applicable to her own actions.

While we have stayed far away from commenting on the pregnancy, this post isn't about that. After all, as parents, there by the grace of God go all of us.

It's not about what the former boyfriend said when he appeared on a national talk show, where intimate details were shared with the entire world.

It's not about a young mother who was uncomfortably thrust into the national spotlight by her mother.

It's about reading the response from the governor and asking; who is the adult in her house?

The response from Palin spokesperson Meg Stapleton concerning Levi Johnston's tell all interview with Tyra Banks was shockingly amateurish and raises significant questions about a 45 year old governor attacking an 18 year old through her media mouthpiece.

"We're disappointed that Levi and his family, in a quest for fame, attention, and fortune, are engaging in flat-out lies, gross exaggeration, and even distortion of their relationship," Stapleton said. "It is unfortunate that Levi finds it more appealing to exploit his previous relationship with Bristol than to contribute to the well-being of the child."

Wow, "a quest for fame, attention and fortune?" That seems unduly harsh given recent history.

After all, wasn't Levi the same young man that Palin proudly paraded up on stage in front of God and country as her future son in law when she needed to satisfy her own "quest for fame, attention and fortune?"

Yes it was.

Is this the governor's idea of being the adult in the house?
