Once again, Oprah opines from a liberal perspective. Conservatives shoot for moral standards to better themselves, understanding that they may fail. While liberals say "Why try? You might fail!"
Misunderstanding this, liberals call those who fail "hypocrites," while they themselves are immune to the charge because they believe that there are no such standards to try to live up to. Thus, liberals are really upset at Bristol Palin for promoting a standard they don't believe exists in the first place.
Peer pressure, lack of support and ridicule are the reasons that abstinence-only sex education hasn't worked more. And the fact that Bristol is willing to take a stand and try should be supported regardless if she ends up failing or not.
