Awwww, an Autumn wedding

In an election campaign notable for its surprises, Sarah Palin, the Republican vice- presidential candidate, may be about to spring a new one — the wedding of her pregnant teenage daughter to her ice-hockey-playing fiancĂ© before the November 4 election.

Inside John McCain’s campaign the expectation is growing that there will be a popularity boosting pre-election wedding in Alaska between Bristol Palin, 17, and Levi Johnston, 18, her schoolmate and father of her baby. “It would be fantastic,” said a McCain insider. “You would have every TV camera there. The entire country would be watching. It would shut down the race for a week.”

The Conservative Christian base would shut down watching, from what I have learned from my readings around the housefrou blogosphere. Mostly from fond memories of their God-ordained weddings. The rest of us would just be cringing, either from watching two young people forced to give up their futures and educations so young (yes, they could carry them on, we were just raised to see it this way) or from the sight of to kids getting rewarded for getting knocked up with a big, state wedding. And more than likely an apartment, money to live on, and a job for Levi. Then they will wonder why we see them as being rewarded.

And they accuse gays of ruining the institution. $5 says Bristol wears white.

This is just more proof, Christians reward sex, at any age and for any reason, as long as no birth control is used. That way it's in the service of God, so he can bring new life into the world.

Besides, education makes you an elitist snob anyway.
