Sarah Palin 17 Year Old Daughter Pregnant

I’m going to be the first to say that this is not political news. Teenage pregnancy is nothing new and the fact that Governor Palin’s daughter is pregnant has nothing to do with this election. I’m not a supporter of her political party but I am a supporter of family privacy rights! This is an issue that they as a family have to face and it is none of our business as political writers on opinion and facts. Even though I personally think that Sarah Palin is the absolute worst choice McCain could have picked as his VP, her family business is her and her husbands to deal with. Her daughters choice to have the baby is her choice and not one other persons business than her own. It’s called Choice!

Politics is a messy business and even the Daily Kos was sucked up into a rumor mill where Sarah Palin was not the mother of her infant son. As the post went, it was her daughters baby and she covered for her. I could not find anything to back that up. From my perspective and research I could not find any legitimate posts on the internet to back up the Daily Kos post. A post that the Daily Kos took off of the site? It was deleted and gone from the site for a reason. One of my close friends in the blogger world sent me the link and I researched it and found nothing. But in the news was this little tid bit and I congratulate the Palin family on soon to be Grand Parents…

ST. PAUL (Reuters) – The 17-year-old unmarried 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, according to aides of Republican presidential candidate John McCain.

Bristol Palin made the decision on her own to keep the baby, the aides said.

The Palins, in a statement released by the McCain campaign, said Bristol "came to us with news that we as parents knew would make her grow up faster than we had ever planned" and that their daughter "has our unconditional love and support."

As a Liberal blogger, I have to say that I welcome another life into this world as a celebration. That would be the Catholic in me. Congrats to you Governor Palin and to your daughter as well.

Barack Obama has called out for all of his supporters to back off on the children and family of all of the candidates in this race. I happen to agree with him on that point but this is an election and every facet of any candidate on the political ticket is up for grabs. Politics is a nasty business and every aspect of your life, your family, your decisions in politics, everything is up for grabs.

Back to pointing out the miss direction of Palin as a politician in public service… Did I type that out loud?

For some odd reason I feel compelled to post this You Tube Video of Sarah Palin not being the mother of Trig? It's out there and it's gaining momentum. Have to love them Swift Boaters. Trust me, the McCain campaign will come out with another version of swift boaters and it will be uglier than you ever thought possible.

I'm not even going to go into the DUI, DWI that the Governors husband Todd Palin went though while a young man. Stuff happens but the Gun Toting Liberal has his thoughts on the subject...

“Troopergate” and “DUIgate” involving First Dude, Todd Palin, isn’t a TRUE campaign issue; particularly in the case of the latter. Who gives a rat’s behind if Mr. Palin got busted in Dillingham, Alaska (Source: CBNnews.Com) when he was twenty-two years old? Apparently, a lot of people do because this blog is receiving TONS of search requests for “Todd Palin DUI DWI” right now, so there ya’ go... - Gun Toting Liberal

Obama himself, as you acknowledge, has asked everyone who supports him to back off the subject of Palin's children and just drop it. Isn't that enough? Do you think that wallowing in this filth will advance Obama's cause in any way?

Obama's statement on this issue made me feel more respect for him than just about anything since the campaign started. It's unfortunate that many who claim to be in his corner don't seem to share his evident desire to restore at least a minimum of decency to the cesspit our politics has become.

My suspicion is that Bristol Palin "chose" to have this baby in much the same way that a man with a gun to his head "chooses" to hand his wallet to a mugger. That is, the conversation around the kitchen table went something like this...

B: Mom, I'm pregnant.
S: Congratulations!
B: But... but... I'm not ready to have a baby! I'm just a high school student!
S: So... (frostily) what are you saying?
B: Could I... uhm, maybe... end it?
S: (even more frostily) You do that and it'll be the last time you see the inside of this house. Nobody in this family will ever talk to you again, nobody in our church will ever talk to you again, it will be just as if you never existed. Do you understand me, young lady? You do that, you're dead to this family.
B: (blubbering) What do I do?
S: You do the right thing. You marry the baby's father, and we support you until you're old enough to support yourself. So it's your choice. Do the right thing, or you're dead to this family. Do you understand?
B: (downcast) Yes mommy.

Now, granted, I wasn't there at that kitchen table. But I've been second-hand witness to this scene at other holy roller homes. First of all, holy roller homes try to cut off their children from secular doings or anything that might lead to independent living. They try to make their children dependent upon the church for all their friendships and clubs and everything, and dependent upon the family for everything else. Second of all, they threaten their children with being cut off from everything they know if they make a choice that offends the precious "family values" of the parental units. It's "my way or the highway", and these children are not equipped emotionally or otherwise to take advantage of the "or the highway" clause.

Anyhow, that's how it works in most holy roller families. I don't know if that's how it worked in Governor Palin's family. But it wouldn't surprise me.

First off, welcome to Papamoka Badtux.

I'm sure that the conversation over this issue was nothing like the television "Secret Life of an American Teenager". One thing is certain, this little girl is going to have to grow up faster than I'm sure she ever intended.
