Sarah Palin's 17-Year-Old Daughter Pregnant Out of Wedlock
Despite false blog rumors stating that Sarah Palin's infant son, Trig, is actually her grandson and the son of one of her teenage daughters, shocking news came today that made this Desperate Housewives-like storyline not so far from the truth.
Sarah Palin, John McCain's running mate, has just announced that her daughter is indeed pregnant. Bristol Palin, 17-years-old, is five months pregnant and plans on marrying the father Levi Johnston.
In a statement to Reuters, the Palins say:
"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. As Bristol faces the responsibilities of adulthood, she knows she has our unconditional love and suppor."
This announcement will undoubtedly add more spice to this year's presidential election and adds more fuel to the fire for those questioning McCain's choice. Especially since McCain has met the governor-for-22-months only once. However, McCain's camp assures that Palin was carefully and thoroughly considered before making the decision.
Although it is uncertain how this announcement will affect some McCain votes, it has successfully created buzz among the MTV generation. Many youth bloggers have already compared Bristol and Levi to none other than Jamie Lynne Spears and Casey Aldridge. Jamie Lynn, Britney's Spears's teenage sister, was also pregnant out of wedlock with Casey Aldridge at the age of 16. According to the New York Post, Levi's Myspace page (currently taken down) already depicts similar views as Aldridge. Johnston claims "I'm a fuckin' redneck" who likes to snowboard and ride dirt bikes. He says he's "in a relationship," and "I don't want kids."
Can we say that this is probably the most interesting elections in U.S. history?
