    bristol palin has been hired to be the poster child for teen abstinence for $262K

    really? really.

    "Teen mom Bristol Palin, now 20, scored $262,000 in 2009 as Candie’s Foundation ambassador promoting abstinence.

    Let me get this straight: Candie’s paid a teen mom a quarter-million dollars to tell other teens not to become teen moms?

    According to the Candie’s Web site, Palin’s job — which she still has — is “helping other teens understand the incredible challenges teen parents face, and encouraging them to wait until they are socially and financially independent to start their families.”

    What incredible challenges? Like walking the red carpet and mastering the paso doble on “Dancing with the Stars”?"

    In the minds of the marketers it's all about celebrity.
    How that celebrity status is achieved doesn't matter.

    Who better than a young woman who's 'been there, done that and got the t-shirt'? If her last name wasn't Palin, this wouldn't be an issue.

    That's right, the last name of Hilton would be just as good.

    maybe someone with ties to reality rather than ties to reality tv.

    if her last name wasn't palin, they wouldn't be paying her $262 let alone $262K.

    does the jerking hurt your knees?

    Shouldnt someone that HAS practiced abstinence be the spokesperson for such a thing?
    I do admit I cant stand anything Palin, so my opinion is biased and unfair...yes, I do admit that. But still....it seems awfully strange to me they would choose her. A more stable role model would have been better. JMHO.
