The difference between Sarah Palin and Britney Spears

by twit

Is that Britney is sorry about endangering the life of her child.

Via USAToday:

Sally Lee, editor of Parents magazine, says there is no excuse for driving with a baby in your lap, because if there’s an accident, the child “becomes a projectile or is crushed between the mother and the steering wheel,” she says.

“It’s such dangerous behavior, and it goes against everything you’ve ever been told about auto safety and babies. There are never mitigating circumstances. The baby should be in a car seat, period.”

According to the Washington Post on September 7, 2008:

Palin held her baby in her arms as the warden drove a short distance around the facility, said corrections director Joe Schmidt, who sat next to Palin.

A few days later, the governor got a warning from her public safety commissioner that someone had complained that she did not strap Trig into a car seat for the ride.

Palin dismissed the complaint as petty, and the commissioner, whom she appointed, took no formal action.

Just ask Britney Spears how illegal it is.  Governor Palin, I have been telling anyone who will listen to stay out of your personal life.  But endangering your infant child is potentially a criminal offense and a very public matter.

update: It looks like this issue runs right into Troopergate:

On the car seat matter, Monegan sent an e-mail to the governor on June 30, 12 days before he lost his job, that said: “Via a soon-to-be-retiring legislator, we received a complaint that had you driving with Trig not in an approved car seat; if this is so that would be awkward in many ways.”

The governor fired back from her private e-mail account: “I’ve never driven Trig anywhere without a new, approved carseat. I want to know who said otherwise — pls provide me that info now.”

Todd Palin, in his sworn statement, said this was a “false rumor,” and that the governor was a passenger in a truck, “on a private farm road without traffic at low speed.”

Thanks, Todd, for letting us know that Governor Palin failed to use a car seat in a moving vehicle.

    why should anyone stay out of s.palin’s personal life when she is an extreme pro-lifer who meddles in women’s personal lives and choices. you sir, or madam, are a complete idiot.

  2. the way I put it in a previous comment:

    I realize that Governor Palin would not pay me the same respect. But I do not want to get dragged down to her level.

    How, pray tell, can a women who is unable to secure her own infant son in a car
    seat be trusted to protect and defend the entire United States?
