The 17-year-old daughter of John McCain’s running mate Sarah Palin (a.k.a. Governor MILFalicious) is reportedly five months pregnant. The McCain campaign revealed the news to rebut rampant rumors that Governor Palin’s infant son is actually her grandson and she faked her pregnancy to protect her daughter Bristol. You seriously just read all that, and I’m now 90% positive John McCain’s research involved picking this woman’s name out of of a hat. Reuters reports:
The Palins, in a statement released by the McCain campaign, said Bristol “came to us with news that we as parents knew would make her grow up faster than we had ever planned” and that their daughter “has our unconditional love and support.”
“We ask the media to respect our daughter and Levi’s privacy as has always been the tradition of children of candidates,” their statement said.
Senior McCain campaign officials said McCain knew of the daughter’s pregnancy when he selected Palin last week as his vice presidential running mate, deciding that it did not disqualify the 44-year-old governor in any way.
I know the knee-jerk reaction will be to point out the hypocrisy of Governor Palin’s faith-based public views on supporting abstinence-only education and overturning Roe v. Wade. But let’s not lose sight of the real issue. Which is Sarah Palin shot a moose.
