This makes no sense


If you didn't want the pregnancy to be the center of attention, why oh why oh why oh why oh why did you invite the baby daddy to the convention?

WASILLA, Alaska (Sept. 2) - The boyfriend of Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin's unwed, pregnant daughter will join the family of the Republican vice presidential candidate at the GOP convention in St. Paul, Minn.

Levi Johnston's mother said her 18-year-old son left Alaska on Tuesday morning to join the Palin family at the convention where Sen. John McCain will officially receive the Republican nomination for president.

The young man's presence could set off a media frenzy around the young couple as photographers and cameramen scramble for pictures of the two teenagers.

This is why, if you wanted them left alone, you leave them out of the spotlight. Actions have consequences. You get knocked up, you don't get to go to Mommy's convention. Simple
On Monday, Palin and her husband, Todd, said their 17-year-old daughter, Bristol, planned to have the baby and wed a young man identified only as Levi. The family asked the media to respect the young couple's privacy as has been the tradition with children of candidates.

Sarah Palin is scheduled to address the convention Wednesday night and traditionally her family would join her at the conclusion of her speech.

He's not family yet. He's not family until after the wedding.
Levi Johnston, a high school hockey player for Wasilla High School, is not listed on the team roster for 2008-2009, and his mother wouldn't say if he graduated. She said simply he's no longer a student and any further information would have to come from him.

You know, once upon a time getting knocked up and having to marry the high school dropout daddy was considered shameful in this country. What happened?

And don't blame the Democrats. Republicans have affairs too. But at least Democrats raise their children right.

Yep, my thoughts exactly.

I don't think Palin's daughter getting pregnant should be held against her mother. Sometimes a teenage girl is just going to go out and get knocked up no matter what her homelife situation is. As per my comment at CIAL, I did. It's all an unfortunate situation.

I always hesitate to make snap judgments about what people's kids do, but we all get caught doing it. Just yesterday I read a newspaper story about a local girl here who hid her pregnancy from her folks, birthed the baby in the bathtub while they were at work, and wrapped him in a garbage bag and stashed the poor baby in her closet. I'm tempted to say, "How could her parents not know! How could they have let her get pregnant in the first place? What horrible parents!" But you just don't ever know what goes on behind closed doors. Her parents could have been the most loving, attentive parents. Mine were, and yet I was a pregnant teenager.

You know, it's like the old saying- something like "The preachers kid is always the worst." Kids have an innate rebellious nature and are prone to going the opposite way of how their parents live. Bristol Palin is no different and she's just a kid. If Sarah Palin were just an ordinary mom no one would blink an eye.
