Let me see if I have this straight…..

* If you  grow up in Hawaii, raised by your grandparents, you’re “exotic, different.”

* Grow up in  Alaska eating moose  burgers, a quintessential American story.

* If your name is Barack you’re a radical, unpatriotic Muslim.

* Name your kids Willow, Trig and  Track, and you’re a maverick.

* Graduate from Harvard law School and be President of the Law Review, and you are  unstable.

* Attend 5 different small colleges before  graduating, you’re well grounded.

* If you spend 3 years as a community organizer, create a voter registration drive that  registers 150,000 new voters, spend 12 years as a Constitutional Law  professor,  spend 8 years as a State Senator representing a  district with over 750,000 people, become chairman of the state  Senate’s Health and Human Services committee, spend 4 years in the United States Senate representing a state of  13 million people  while sponsoring 131 bills and serving on the Foreign Affairs,  Environment and Public Works and Veteran’s Affairs committees, you  don’t have any real leadership experience.

* If your total resume is: local weather girl, 4 years on the city council and 6 years as the mayor of a town with less than 7,000 people, 20  months as the governor of a state with only 650,000 people, then you’re qualified to become the country’s second highest ranking executive.

* If you have been married to the same woman for 19 years while raising 2 beautiful daughters, all within Protestant churches, you’re not a real Christian.

* If you cheated on  your first wife with a rich heiress, and left your disfigured wife and married the heiress the next month, you’re a Christian.

* If you teach responsible, age appropriate sex education, including the proper use of birth control, you are eroding the fiber of  society.

* If, while governor, you staunchly advocate  abstinence only, with no other option in sex education in your  state’s school system while your unwed teen daughter ends up pregnant, you’re very responsible.

* If your wife is a Harvard graduate lawyer who gave up a position in a prestigious law firm to work for the betterment of her inner city community, then  gave that up to raise a family, your family’s values
don’t represent  America’s.

* If your husband is nicknamed “First Dude”,  with at least one DUI conviction and no college education, who  didn’t register to vote until age 25 and once was a member of a  group that advocated the secession of Alaska from the  USA, your family is  extremely admirable.

Okay, much clearer now.
