Family Values PfffTT!! Sarah Palin's Daughter Bristol is Pregnant Out of Wedlock

1 September 2008 at 11:53:18 AM

Wrote about all the brouhahah concerning Palin and her down syndrome child, including a rumour that perhaps it was Sarah Palin's child and Bristol was the mother of the down syndrome baby instead of Sarah Palin.

But THIS is a story purported to be 1. Bristol Palin, 17 years old, is pregnant. Five months pregnant. And McCain says he KNEW that Palin's daughter was pregnant.

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.

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.

Senior McCain campaign officials said McCain knew of the daughter's pregnancy when he selected Palin last week as his vice presidential running mate, deciding that it did not disqualify the 44-year-old governor in any way.

Actually I don't believe that. Do you? Do you REALLY think that Palin wouldn't have been IMMEDIATELY crossed off the list if McCain knew the daughter was preggers? And that he was trying to woo, besides women, evangelicals? It's baloney because he did NOT properly vet her before deciding on this airhead.

Some family, eh? As noted before, it appears that Sarah Palin herself eloped because she and Todd Palin were having a child out of wedlock. Must run in the family to get preggers first, and THEn marry.  Mistakes happen, but it sure isn't a model family. I"m guessing she won't be pushing the Abstinence meme on the campaign trail. eh? And it STILL doesn't say much for her judgment to go flying off to give a speech in Grapevine, Texas, have her WATER break, but stay to give her speech and then, instead of running to the hospital to get checked out, fly back to Alaska. She seems like a huge ditz to me.

This picture pretty well says it all.

P.S. Nobody raises a perfect family. Nobody. There isn't any parent, myself included, that doesn't go back and wonder if he or she could have done something different or watched a little closer or whatever. Just ask the people involved with Julie Tungeln, the child sexual predator that was recently arrested. But what I object to is the hypocrisy. You can't go around the country claiming that you're a great family with some kind of moral superiority based on your poltical and religious views while your own daughter is apparently not supervised to the extent of getting pregnant. And saying, oh, but NOW she'll get married, is a copout to all the people who want to believe that if they just follow a path of abstinence (because, after all, what is abstinence except self-control?) they won't have to take birth control or resort to abortions, etc etc. It's the hypocrisy.

P.P.S. On a more conspiratorial note, just rumor-mongering. Suppose the baby really is Bristol's and, in order to explain some added weight NOW, her mom says she's pregnant. Then, within the next few months, poor poor Bristol has a miscarriage and loses the baby, both engendering sympathy and losing the need to cough up a baby in 4 months. Yes, I know that's outlandish and says that the Palins would be lying about the baby and trying to continue to cover it up by continuing to make her daughter the fall guy. But what a choice, eh? Palin either is a strange loose cannon attempting to cover up her daughter's pregancy and birth OR she is a not-very-attentive mother with a pregnant teenage daughter with a baby coming out of wedlock. Either way, she doesn't seem like a VP one could be proud of.

I don't buy the story. My theory is that the down syndrome kid is the daughters and she never lost the weight after having the kid. Now all of a sudden she is 5 months pregnant? I will only believe it IF she pops out a kid in 4 months...else I'm going with my own theory that she will have a 'miscarriage' and get some sympathy vote for Palin therefore not having to produce a child in 4 months. In the meantime kill the story about the kid not actually being hers.

Tell you what would settle that hash. A Y-DNA test, since males get their DNA from their father.

If McCain's selection of Sarah Palin is indicative of his best judgement, every American should be fearful of a John McCain presidency, particularly as more comes out about

How funny!!! Joe, I have to tell you your theory

omigosh! You're RIGHT! I'm not a Desperate Housewives viewer but I found the plot on the Sun site. (with a video clip)

Bree (Marcia Cross) and hubby Orson (Kyle MacLachlan) are stunned that teenage daughter Danielle is in the club.

And they figure the only way to avoid shame and gossip is for Bree to stick on a fake bump and pass herself off as pregnant.

Obama's mother was pregnant before she got married.

At minimum she has reckless and poor judgement.

Your miscarriage theory is literally the exact discussion my entire family had at the dinner table tonight. This has all the makings of a lifetime movie.

The whole country is waiting to see if the Palins ACTUALLY produce another child in 4 months. I've already got multiple bets that they do not.

As for the rest of the story, the idea that the daughter missed 5 months of school coinciding with the final five months of Sarah's supposed pregnancy simply does not add up. These people are hiding something. The pictures don't show a pregnant Palin, and the announcement 7 months along doesn't reflect a rational person or a 1 pregnancy either. Something else is going on here.

Brace yourselves for the best political implosion in history.

To chantelle. You obviously did not read my entire post where I said that no family is perfect and that definitely includes Obama's. But what I object to is hypocrisy. If you're going to be pretending to be a mother that can fry up bacon in a pan, raise five kids and never never let those Republican men in charge forget they are men, then don't let them use your Down Syndrome kid as an abortion prop as a quality of why you're such a great family gal. And don't take your position on having abstinence only schooling when clearly it didn't work with your own kid. Republicans have been shovelling the Family Values swill for a number of years, as; if ONLY Republicans have values, and it's enjoyable, frankly, to see that they are only human just like the rest of us, including Obama's parents, and have no right to set themselves up as guiding lights.

I don't think that McCain knew that Palin came with a truck load of baggage, so to speak, the woman has hired an attorney for some sort of scandel concerning a brother-in-law. For crying out loud, I know that McCain is not the sharpest knife in drawer but even he would have more sense than to choose someone who doesn't practice what she preaches. Abstinence only sex education, her daughter didn't listen did she?

I agree. I think that's why he didn't vet her properly and now the McCain people are frantically trying to find out what's going on and doing damage control. I also believe this shows that his impulsive nature makes him ill suited to be president.

I just dunno if I'm ready to hand over our nuclear arsenal to the Palin family.
