Yesterday there was a rumor that republican VP nominee Sarah Palin‘s 5th child was actually her 17 year old daughter Bristol Palin‘s child. That Sarah Palin had wanted to spare her daughter the shame and claimed the baby as her own. Yes, the rumor was also a storyline on last season’s Desperate Housewives. The scheme on the show was also carried out by a right-wing gun nut character. It just fit. Besides, when a high school girl is out of school for 7 months with mono. That’s code.
Anyway, news broke this morning, very fitting for ‘Labor’ Day, that Bristol is 5 months pregnant now. And that Sarah, doesn’t want to spare her the shame. So there’s a relief.
Sarah and Todd Palin issued a statement saying they are “proud of Bristol’s decision to have her baby and even prouder to become grandparents.”
The thing with being pro-choice AND anti-birth control (er pro-abstinence) is that sooner or later something is going to (ahem) give.
