You gurlz are surprised? For her father's career at least, she should have used better judgement. She was doing this where a 'friend' could take a video. How dumb is she? He's a career politician. She knew better.
She should be keeping her nose very clean so as to not drawattention to herself in a negative light. As his child, I feel it is a reflection of his parenting.
Hey, most of us have done stupid things or made mistakes. How difficult it would be to have a parent in the public eye in such a huge way, and be castigated for something because of being under that microscope...and not by her own choice. I say give the girl a break. Same with Phelps. His foolishness will cost him on his own, same for her in the long run...but the public eye is a harsh one....and her mistake is no more foolish than thousands of other kids, every day...they just don't get the publicity.
