The bridge to every stump speech

I am the mother of young children. Children who, when confronted with the question who did this? will reply without hesitation-not me!  In the face of evidence they will hold steadfastly to that line

Not me

I didn’t

I swear I didn’t

That last line is often accompanied by tears and indignant rage-implying how  dare I suggest such. That’s when I know the guilty party has spoken.

Teaching children to tell the truth is one of the most important tasks of parenting. So many times I hear myself saying, you won’t get in trouble for (offense of the moment), but you will get in trouble for lying. You must always be honest with me, I must be able to trust you.

Maybe Governor  Palin’s mom forgot to review that with her daughter.

We know it’s not true, she’s even had to admit it’s not true, and yet….
