Sarah Palin Can't Decide If Fictional Single Women Should Raise Children

Fans of The LiberalOasis Radio Show know we try very hard not to talk about Sarah Palin, because without liberal outrage, she would go away.

But I can't pass this up.

Her new book bothers to slam the 1992 fictional TV character "Murphy Brown" for choosing to keep her baby and raise it without a father.

Media Matters excerpts:

Standing up for the family wasn't fashionable then and it is even less fashionable now. Many of us remember one of the early and epic clashes of the American heartland versus Hollywood over the role of the American family.

It was May 1992, and thirty-eight million Americans watched as a fictional television journalist named Murphy Brown, finding herself over forty, divorced, and pregnant, decided to have the child alone. Without the baby's father. On prime-time television.

And her new book praises the fictional movie character "Juno" for having her baby. AP reports:

Most Americans, I think, are a lot like Juno," she writes — they may not be actively religious, "but they still want to do the right thing."

Juno, of course, then gave her baby to a soon-to-be divorced woman who was going to raise it without a father.
