Bristol Palin Pregnant

Breaking news banner at cnn.com right now: “Bristol Palin, 17-year-old daughter of Sarah Palin, is pregnant and will keep the baby and marry the father, a senior McCain aide confirms.”

Frankly, I don’t care about about the private lives of candidates or their families. That’s because I’m a Democrat and I don’t judge what grown-ups do with their genitals behind closed doors. 

But Palin is a self-described evangelical Christian who opposes same-sex marriage, contraception (even for married couples), and abortion.  Interesting to see that her daughter thinks for herself.  Hypocrites.

UPDATE:

Here’s the CNN story.

UPDATE TWO (heh):

UPDATE THREE:

The Palins have released a statement confirming the news and asking that their “privacy” be respected.  Ironic request from a candidate who doesn’t believe that, in another context, a right to privacy exists at all (at least not for the rest of us).

UPDATE FOUR:

A reader who believes Palin’s fifth child, Trig, is also Bristol’s responds:

Let me see if I have this right.  She missed the last five months of the school year because of mono, also known as the kissing disease.  Yet she somehow wasn’t so contagious that her boyfriend wouldn’t [you-know-what] her. $5 says it is soon hereafter reported that she has had a “miscarriage”, undoubtedly sometime in the next two months, just in time to throw a few sympathy votes McCain/Palin’s way.  The coverup will then be complete.

Apparently, my correspondent only has vague memories of being a 17 year old dude.

  1. downow!

    wait…… so does this mean an abstinence only policy really DOESN’T prevent unwanted teen pregnancy?

  2. The bad news: Bristol Palin is pregnant.
    The GOOD NEWS: It was an immaculate conception!
    Should play right into the hands of the Evangelicals, aye?!
    The baby’s name will be Gustav.

    They weren’t sure if the “young man” was going to marry her, but Bush sent Dick Cheney over with a shotgun, just for a little “talk.”
