Remembering Murphy Brown

Way back in 1992 the television character Murphy Brown made national headlines when then Vice President Dan Quayle called her out, seeming to forget that she was a fictional character, for "ignoring the importance of fathers by birthing a child alone."  This was all part of the hoopla of the time dealing with "family values."

Twenty years later it has been announced that Bristol Palin, daughter of a former VP candidate, will be in a reality show about her life as a single mother.  I wonder if we will hear anything from the right about this show and the dangers to "family values" or "traditional values" that this show clearly represents?
