I saw octuplet mom Nadya Suleman talking to NBC’s Ann Curry, and I’m still waiting to hear that “heartwarming story” her PR flack promised. So far I see only an airhead who blows money on acrylic French tips (guess she doesn’t do diapers) and doesn’t think food stamps and government support checks constitute welfare.
Every time Suleman opens her mouth, she digs herself deeper in the blackest hole of public opinion. She claims she worked double shifts to earn roughly $100,000 she squandered on IVF treatments even as she was stockpiling babies and depriving them of her income and attention. But her dates don’t add up because she hasn’t worked much since 1999 when she sustained a back injury and went on disability.
And after 3 of her first 6 were born with disabilities severe enough to qualify for government assistance, including one who’s autistic, she thought it would be just dandy to have 8 more.
And now she’s got a Web site asking the world to pay for her litter. Is she kidding?
To keep brainless breeders like Suleman in check, it’s time to consider a mandatory spay/neuter law for HUMANS.
It’s been reported that Suleman’s father has split to his native Iraq, where he’s got job opportunities as a translator and driver. At least he recognizes that somebody in that family needs a paycheck.
There hasn’t been enough room for 9 people in the 1,500-square-foot Suleman house, and now Nadya thinks she can stuff 16 into it. And there’s no telling what disabilities the preemie octuplets may reveal over time.
Where the hell is Social Services? Somebody needs to find good homes for all these kids. Suleman has shown reckless disregard in providing for them, and supreme arrogance in assuming an army of volunteers will raise them while she skips off to grad school and piles more debt on the $50K she already owes in student loans. She’ll never be able to support the family she so selfishly created.
But she could give lessons to leeches.
