Bristol Palin is Pregnant!

Bristol Palin is Pregnant!

Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin announced that her 17-year-old daughter Bristol Palin is five months pregnant and is going to marry the father.

Sarah and husband Todd Palin released this statement via the John 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.”

Reuters news service, which first reported the news, says this news is “intended to knock down rumors by liberal bloggers that Palin faked her own pregnancy to cover up for [Bristol].” Trig was born this past April with Down Syndrome.

I don’t think it especially debunks – I think it’s a nice coincidence to be able to come forward as though they AREN’T embarassed that their 17-year-old daughter is pregnant in an attempt to disprove the rumours.

# 2

Where there is smoke there is fire…

# 3

Aha! I knew it! This is only going to get worse. I think the baby Trig is hers and this is just another cover up . Either that or she got knocked up again, as many first time moms do. But how did the daughter get pregnant five months ago if she was infected with mono? Gimme a break! This lady is a joke with her family values, lies, and cover ups!

# 4

WOW! I don’t condemn them – these things happen. But, it certainly makes McCain look like a fool.

# 5

hahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha

so much for family values! she can’t even keep her daughter in check and we’re supposed to trust this woman with the safety of the country.

# 6

I don’t think the first story is right.

# 7

this statement is said to look so supportive and sweet but you know Sarah Palin is freaking out about how this is going to look among her own party, all the conversatives that preach about family values and children out of wedlock, let alone so young. Yeah this is going to get interesting.

Interesting. This could have been a time where she stepped to the plate about how abstinence only education doesn’t work. Instead her and McCain still hold onto those outdated sex education beliefs that Bush pushed in their heads.

I don’t think this debunks her being the mother of Trig. And if Sarah is indeed the mother, then it brings into a WHOLE lot of concern about her judgment with thinking it’s okay to fly on a plan while in labor. Further to go back to work three days after having a child with ds. NEVER having a child with ds, but thinking it’s okay to not only go back to work, but step up to a position that will ONLY take you away from your child even more. If your judgment is lacking with your own kids, surely you aren’t prepared to be concerned about others.

This is so trailer trash.

What a coincidence. Now one of these things will happen:
1. Palin will resign to deal with her “family issues”
2. we will find out that the first baby is her daughter’s also and she got pregnant again
3. her daughter will mysteriously lose the baby (or mysteriously give it up for adoption) since she’s not really pregnant but is still overweight from her first (real) pregnancy.

This woman is a joke but I hope her daughter is OK.

hahhh nice…

This broad is an f’ing fool of a candidate. For all her high and mighty moral standards, nice to see her daughter is as much of a dirty w-h-o-r-e as all the other girls that get knocked up in high school.

I’ll bet Palin is out of the VP slot before the election as more and more stuff gets revealed.

Way to go McCain! You just RUINED your chances to be the next Prez. We live in a great country folks!

I guess abstinence only education didn’t work in this case. Or maybe her daughter missed those class discussions due to being out for 8 months with “mono” (wink wink)!

This is such a joke !!!!! The truth will prevail… Sarah needs to come clean….. Remember EDWARDS??? President Clinton ??? Do we need to go on?? Family skeleton’s ALWAYS come rattling out of the closet, when you are in the public eye, no matter how hard you try to bury them. Wake up Palin !!!! It is getting close to Halloween, AND Election day…. Any skeleton’s you need to air out before hand ??? It is only fair to all of us and McCain ……..

Even without this news this morning, the vicious lie that The Daily Kos (who supports Obama) started was being debunked here:

Also Sarah Palin’s story seems to be life imitating art. The wonderful film “Juno” dealt with this exact subject and America warmly embarced that story. I think Americans are going to love Sarah for her openess, her warmth, her intelligence and will really being pulling for her to succeed.

good luck with that @ 09/01/2008 at 1:02 pm

WOW.. are the parents forcing them to marry to save face? Cause I can’t imagine marriage at 17 working in this day and age. A shotgun marriage really consolidates the message of family values, abstinence vs sex education and birth control.

Sounds like someone needs to spend more time at home with her children vs less.

I was the result a high school love affair forced into marriage.. let me tell you..it rarely works. My parents are so much happier apart and should have never married just to cover the mistake of my conception.

Actually, news outlets are reporting that McCain knew about the pregnancy before he made his choice. They’re trying to handle a difficult situation as graciously as possible, and I think it’s really underestimating the American people to think that a mistake made by a candidate’s daughter would dictate election results. Seriously, people…grow up.

This is similar to Jamie-Lynn spears all over again. They have no other choice but to be supportive but who knows what other secrets that are out there.

I thought they were conservatives i.e. no sex before marriage?

wow mccain way to go for choosing this woman

Obama’s attack site The Daily Kos is nothing more than a garbage in/garbage out website.

If Obama had any class he would denounce their support for his campaign. If he doesn’t it proves that he isn’t a new kind of politician and deals in slimes and smears of other candidates and their families.

Obama = The Daily Kos = smear site

Sounds to me like Reuters is right.

Kinda ends up making the case for sex education and birth control, doesn’t it?

Now she will be lucky to get a GED and be married before 17 and a toddler before she is old enough to drink.. nice Alaskan life. Nothing better to do out there I guess, especially when your mom is never around.

Good job Palin. Good example of leadership since it will not change your incorrect and stubborn view on sex ed and abstinence vs birth control.

And just think.. your newborn and his nephew will be only a few months apart in age.. heartwarming!!

Wow! i think they need a photo op with the Spears family ASAP!

Jaime Lynn and Bristol can become BFFs, they already share funny names, crazy familes and dumb boyfriends!
