Stacy: Just because you’re a genuine reporter doesn’t mean you’re also genuinely cynical. Similarly, just because I’m not a real reporter doesn’t mean I’m hopelessly naive. By comparing Bristol Palin’s situation with his own mother’s when she had him, Obama has elevated what could be a political fiasco into a poetic moment, the implication being that if one 18 year old gave birth to a political savior who is to say young Bristol may not herself be carrying the next Messiah Obama?
Of course, I suspect Obama knows the common sense of the American people will lead many to wonder why in the world Sarah Palin accepted the vice-presidential offer in such circumstances…
Game, set, match, election.
