Somebody Pinch Me!!!
After eight years of waiting for the Republican Party to crash and burn it looks like they have finally done it. The McCain camp announced that Sarah Palin's 17 year old daughter, Bristol, is five months pregnant. McCain advisers confirmed the information and stated that Palin's daughter will marry the supposed father of the child (shotgun wedding?). The spokespeople also stated that it knew of the pregnancy, but wanted to protect the family. Meanwhile, The Peach has found out that McCain's team has returned to Alaska to vet Palin and her people once again.
Oh boy, and it just gets better. According to sources close to her, when Sarah Palin announced she was 7 months pregnant with her fifth child, daughter Bristol was in the midst of a 5 month absence from school. The Palin family claimed that the absence was due to a severe case of mono. Yet, many bloggers believe that Sarah's fifth child, Trig, is actually Bristol's. This belief gained traction when those around Sarah stated that she never looked pregnant and Mama Palin's own description of what one journal called a "lengthy and circuitous trip" to the delivery room.
This event sends up so many red flags. If this is how McCain uses his judgment, can we really trust him to be president? Can we really trust someone who acts first and asks the important questions later? What happen to the old "abstinence only" mantra? Are Republicans ignoring unsafe sex while promoting their "Christian" agenda?
The Peach feels it is only a matter of time before Sarah Palin pulls out (no pun intended :)). If so, McCain can see if Lynne Spears is available.
