The party of the higher moral ground is going to be in full spin mode with this latest news.
McCain’s Veep choice, Sarah Palin, said Monday that her 17-year-old, unmarried daughter, is five months pregnant.
The announcement is likely aimed at rebutting rumors that the Alaskan Gov’s youngest son, born in April, was actually her daughter’s.
A statement released by the campaign said that “Bristol” Palin will keep her baby and marry the child’s father. Bristol Palin is five months pregnant, and the baby is due in late December.
It will be interesting to see just how old the father is. In my opinion this not only makes for engaging water-cooler talk, but questions to McCain’s vetting process, decision making- and Mrs Palin’s own decisions regarding career trajectory and raising her brood of young’uns. It’s QUALITY not QUANTITY ma’am.
Lately it seems we’ve been baraged by these “holier-than-thou’s” amongst our “leaders” being exposed as hypocrites-or worse. There are no defining party lines either. Whether it’s straight up corruption, bathroom stall shenanigans, high priced call-girls, or being on the low-low, they’re caught in their messes.
And the spin ensues…
“Our beautiful daughter Bristol came to us with news that as parents we knew would make her grow up faster than we had ever planned. We’re proud of Bristol’s decision to have her baby and even prouder to become grandparents,” Sarah and Todd Palin said in the brief statement.
“Bristol and the young man she will marry are going to realize very quickly the difficulties of raising a child, which is why they will have the love and support of our entire family,” they added.
Right. Anyone over the age of 30 knows that a 17 yr old mother-to-be and her “…young man” are sorely unprepared, immature, and emotionally unequipped for a shotgun marriage. What a farce.
Tell me Gov Palin all about how these 2 teenagers love eachother. How this marriage could even remotely be recognized as a legitimate union between 2 people having unconditional love for eachother.
And to illustrate this farce, here’s part of “the father’s” (Levi Johnston) MySpace page before it was taken down….
“Johnston boasts, ‘I’m a f – – -in’ redneck’ who likes to snowboard and ride dirt bikes. ‘But I live to play hockey. I like to go camping and hang out with the boys, do some fishing, shoot some s- – – and just f – – -in’ chillin’ I guess.’ ‘Ya f – – – with me I’ll kick [your] ass,’ he added. He also claims to be ‘in a relationship,’ but states, ‘I don’t want kids.'”
And the prospective VeeP thinks its a good idea for her pregnant minor daughter to MARRY this guy?
