Family Values

Bristol Palin, the 17-year-old daughter of Sarah Palin, is five months pregnant. She's still in high school and the families plan for the baby's parents to marry.

Let's go over this one more time: abstinence-only education does. not. work. Peddling ignorance only makes stupid people.

Now, I personally don't think there's anything wrong with an unmarried person having a baby. I do think there's something wrong with a teenager having a baby, but only because it makes getting a good education more complicated. The Republican party, on the other hand, along with christian conservatives, doesn't have such a live-and-let-live attitude -- unless, of course, it's their children who are having sex outside of marriage (or their candidates who are leaving their wives because they are crippled and then marrying a rich young trollop before the divorce with the first wife is final).

John McCain/Palin: the hypocrite ticket.

Uh, yeah. A convenient little campaign morsel for the anti-abortion candidates.
