Might as well save my readers the comments and emails.
The 17-year-old daughter of Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin is pregnant, Palin said on Monday in an announcement intended to knock down rumors by liberal bloggers that Palin faked her own pregnancy to cover up for her child.Stuff happens in life and in families --- a lot of families -- it is what you do when it happens that matters. I don't know about you, but I know what my house is made of.
Bristol Palin, one of Alaska Gov. Palin’s five children with her husband, Todd, is about five months pregnant and is going to keep the child and marry the father, the Palins said in a statement released by the campaign of Republican presidential candidate John McCain.
Anyway, as Allah points out - I don't see the Obama camp getting all high-and-mighty about it.
Needless to say, for a variety of reasons you won’t be hearing anything about this from Team Barry. But in case any more reason was needed, people are e-mailing to remind me that The One’s mother was also a teenager when she gave birth to him and married his father just six months before he was born. That won’t stop the left from attacking, of course — remember, the ostensible sin here is hypocrisy, not teen motherhood, even though the point clearly enough is to try to shame Palin with her daughter’s morals.....and yes, I saw the ring last Friday (you can too if you look at the pic on the upper right), but said nothing. I think it is fair to say that this is something the McCain camp knew about and was not going to hide.
