    about the values — or non-values — we promote in this country. Out of one side of our mouths we tell kids to get educated, work hard, and be honest, and they will be successful. On the other hand, groups like this lavishly reward a barely educated woman with no particular skills promoting hypocrisy, solely because she is the daughter of someone famous. It really strips the veil off our real values — which are garbage. Over the years I've found it increasingly hard to tell kids with a straight face that they should study hard, go to college, and aspire to a serious career. Imagine trying to tell a kid in this climate that they should be a teacher. It makes me gag that no teacher anywhere is making as much as Bristol Palin — and they are being demonized as overpaid and underworked. Feh.
