Conservative Family Values

Sex education is abstinence-only, and you don't teach them about birth control.

Presumably this explains why Alaska Gov./Republican vice-presidential nominee Sarah Palin's 17-year-old daughter Bristol, is reported today to be five months pregnant, and planning to marry the father.

The McCain campaign says they knew this when Palin was nominated. Really?

I've been surfing around a little, and the right-wing defense seems to be "don't attack poor Bristol, she deserves her privacy." It's kind of like "support the troops" -- a way to hide behind the vulnerable so as to protect your own sorry, hypocritical, self-righteous ass. I wish Bristol Palin well. Her mother, on the other hand....

I read somewhere that Palin came out with this information to dispel previous rumors that Palin's newest baby was actually her daughter's! As if her unwed, teenage daughter being pregnant is better. My jaw continues to drop over this whole thing!

I just hope the father is OK with this. It'll be interesting to see how long this marriage lasts (assuming it happens).
