    Bristol Palin won't appear on Mo. abstinence panel

    ST. LOUIS (AP) -- Washington University in St. Louis says Bristol Palin won't be speaking there next month after all.

    The decision comes after some students expressed outrage over Palin being paid with student-generated funds.

    The daughter of former GOP vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin had been invited by the university's Student Health Advisory Committee to be part of a panel discussion on abstinence on Feb. 7. Bristol Palin became pregnant at 17 and is a single mom to a 2-year-old son.

    It's not clear exactly how much she was to receive, but student leaders had approved spending $20,000 for the panel.

    I like one of the reasons listed in the petition was "lack of expertise". :lol:

    But yeah, any amount of money for Bristol Palin to speak on abstinence? I would of signed said petition too, such a waste of money.

    It's $20k for the panel not just to Bristol.

    You're right. Though any sort of money spent on Bristol Palin speaking on abstinence would be a waste of money.

    Nope.

    Furor at Washington U. nixes Bristol Palin appearance

    Student-generated funds I assume in this case would mean the % of every student's tuition that goes to these type of committees to allocate to clubs and groups at a college.

    She would of also made quite the amount even if it wasn't $20,000.

    Isn't having Bristol speak on abstinence like closing the barn door after the horse got out?

    In other news of the weird this week, Ted Haggard admitted to being bisexual.

    Would the title of her speech have been?

    "Fools will pay me money for my abstinance failure".

    Kinda like a celebrity class welfare baby?

    How so?

    B/c she got knocked up or b/c her last name is Palin?

    Take a moment and consider these hypotheticals;

    You're a drunk and want to sober up. Do you look for help from;
    A) a person that has no idea what alcohol taste like
    B) A former drunk that knows just how hard it is to walk past a bar instead of in

    You're a randy college student. You want to bang everything in sight but don't know the risks for certain. Do you look for help from;
    A) A virgin with a promise ring that's never done the nasty.
    B) someone that's living the result of giving in to the urge.


    and please no; "she wouldn't be speaking if her last name wasn't Palin." I know she wouldn't.
