Sarah Palin Comes Out: Her Daughter is Pregnant

Sarah Palin just came out and acknowledged her daughter Bristol's pregnancy.

I was wrong. Palin did not fake her pregnancy. I have no idea how she looked like that but she did.

I have to admit, I was not only quick to judge, but quick to jump on the bandwagon that said she had faked a pregnancy to cover up for her daughter. If it were a man running for office, would I have drawn the same conclusions?

Am I being sexist in taking this tact against Palin?

I think so.

Time for pause.

Well, I'm confused by a lot of things concerning this woman and her family. A LOT.

And it all just makes me wonder more and more why McCain picked her when she has all these rumors floating around about her.

Oh well. Yay for abstinence education!

i'm sure there will be enough verifiable information come out about her that there is no need to rush and accuse from inuendo.

you know, those good kids of religous zealots don't have sex, she must be carrying the next mesiah! LMAO

Hmm. Still, there's something fishy, even if it is only her judgement: jumping on a plane with contractions and leaking amniotic fluid when you are having your fifth child, and prematurely, and a special needs kids to boot, to go to a backwater hospital? That is strange. OB/GYNs on the net say that there is no chance she would have lastet 22 hours if the story is true about the leaking fluid etc.
Either she is lying about something - maybe the fluid leaking? Or she is showing incredibly poor judgement. Or both.
But I don't really want it to turn into a babygate, because I don't want McNasty to replace her. With her on the ticket, he will loose for sure.

You guys know nothing about this woman or how people in Alaska fly planes more than they drive cars, but keep making judgement calls on someone else's way of life. I guess when you've got nothing but one successful woman who has made something of her life and is a mother, a public servant and willing to put herself up to scrutiny that I'd bet none of you would like to do yourselves.... just call her a religious zealot and take another cheap shot. Maybe this is why people have a hard time taking you all seriously with other issues.

anonymous, that may be true, but it doesn't mean she's qualified to potentially be president. I think questions of character and honesty are reasonable.

Made front page news here in Britain! Our press our covering this so closely, it's like a horrible trainwreck that you just can't look away from. Politics aside, I really feel bad for her daughter. Having your private life splashed across the world's papers must be traumatising. Nice one Sarah Palin.
