The Palins are soooo the Spears family of Alaska!
Like the Spears, the Palins have a knocked up teenaged daughter.
AND, like the Spears, it looks like the Palins sometimes poo poo the whole notion of child safety seats.
We were shocked to read the following report:
One Friday in June, Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin joined the chief of the state prison system on a tour of the Point MacKenzie Correctional Farm, a 90-minute drive north of Anchorage. It was a routine visit but for the presence of the governor's infant son, Trig.
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.
Someone's concern for Palin's disabled son's life was dismissed by her as petty?!?
