John McCain: Fail. Good to know you’ll still be here in Arizona after November, John. The place wouldn’t be the same without you.
I may be living in a hole, but I do know that John McCain selected Sarah Palin as his VP pick. And I also know this:
Palin eloped with her high-school boyfriend, Todd Palin, on August 29, 1988, when she was 24 years old. Their first son, Track, was born eight months after their wedding….
Unless that kid was born prematurely (and I cannot find anything on the web to support that theory) she was pregnant before she eloped. She engaged in pre-marital sexual intercourse without the benefit of contraception, and then later in life pushed abstinence only sex education every chance she got. Maybe she wanted others to learn from her own mistakes?
…Ms. Palin and her husband disclosed that their 17-year-old daughter is five months pregnant, and will have the baby, and marry the father.
Let me get this straight; the hard-core Christian, bible thumping, “God’s army” chanting, former bueaty queen, got married when she was pregnant, and now after years of church and god and jesus and abstinence only, her own 17 year old un-wed daughter is pregnant?
You have got to be joking. The irony is killing me. I absolutely adore the folks spinning the “she’s going to keep the baby!” line into something more than “she didn’t abstain!”
Can this episode finally, and I mean finally, nail the door shut on the viability of abstinence only sex education in this country? What do people need to see, her granddaughter get knocked up so you have three generations that said-one-thing-and-did-another before you realize just how fucking infantile and misguided “abstinence only” is?by
