    Palin’s Daughter Pregnant

    Alaska Governor Sarah Palin has announced that her 17-year-old daughter is five months pregnan. The announcement is “intended to knock down rumors by liberal bloggers that Palin faked her own pregnancy to cover up for her child,” says the Reuters news service, which carried the first report.

    In a statement, the Palin family says that Bristol Palin is “about five months pregnant” and that she intends to marry the father. “We have been blessed with five wonderful children who we love with all our heart and mean everything to us," the Palins said in the statement. "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. As Bristol faces the responsibilities of adulthood, she knows she has our unconditional love and support.”

    The Palin family asked the media to “respect our daughter” and her privacy. According to the Reuters report, John McCain’s campaign was aware of the pregnancy when the Arizona senator selected Palin to be his running mate last week.

    Update: The following is the full Palin statement as released by the McCain campaign:

    "We have been blessed with five wonderful children who we love with all our heart and mean everything to us. 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. As Bristol faces the responsibilities of adulthood, she knows she has our unconditional love and support."

    "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. We ask the media to respect our daughter and Levi's privacy as has always been the tradition of children of candidates."

    Everything is fair game in politics, especially when you're running on a family values and morality based campaign. The conservatives have made teen pregnancy and premarital sex part of their platform. However, it'd be good strategy for Obama not to touch this with a ten foot pool and let the moral conservatives cast their stones.

    Personally, I see this as a non-issue but she will have some doubts when talking about family values.

    I think Palin has a great family. Bristol's lucky to have such supportive parents.

    Ummmmm....isn't Family Values 101 all about not making babies before you get married? And doesn't it help to graduate high school first? Why did Sarah teach this girl to keep her pants on around boys?

    Because Governor Palin doesn't have a remote control to her daughter's vagina.

    Probably because it seemed the proper thing to do. Find me a kid who is totally obedient. Besides--it's her body, right--she can do what she wishes.

    I doubt that very highly. He's already polling low with conservatives. After getting ass raped in South Carolina back in 2000, why would he think that this would be overlooked within his party?

    Ah, the ol' "it's her body" argument. That'll go over nicely with conservatives. :badgrin:

    Also, dumbass, about accountability when you make mistakes.

    Which everyone does.

    But your compassion is overwhelming. I can see what a staunch advocate you must be for the young and disillusioned. Do you use these same skills as you're herding them into the abortion clinics?
