Bristol Palin Pregnant, Kos Kidz More Unhinged Than Ever

Today brings us the earth-shattering news that Bristol Palin, daughter of GOP VP nominee Sarah Palin, is pregnant.

Naturally, the lovely folks who were afraid of looking stupid for suggesting she's the actual mother of Sarah Palin's five-month-old baby, are having a field day.
First of all, who says that Bristol Palin really is pregnant right now? She could suddenly have a miscarriage down the road and poof baby gone.

Secondly, Bristol could have had a baby back in April, and be pregnant again.

The McSame camp said two things

1. They knew Bristol was pregnant (but neglected to put that in Sarah's remarkable life-story)

2. This announcement was intended to stop rumors on the internet

Well Senator Songbird, we're just getting started.

This goes to core of the corruption of the Republican Party. Sarah Palin's only qualification to be the second most powerful person in the world is that she is against abortion and hates gays. Sound familiar -- it should. Whether it's the coalition provisional authority in Iraq, or the Justice Department here at home, qualifications don't matter, experience doesn't matter, only whether you stand on the "right" side of social issues.
This is even worse.
You can't make this shit up. "Evangelical Christian" Sarah Palin's 17 year old daughter is knocked up. No word on the father yet. That'll help Palin's daughter to break the glass ceiling: start out life dragging a screaming kid around. Should work out fine on those job interviews.

Oh, but she's KEEPING IT. Wonderful. What's the name going to be: Bareback?

Palin is quickly being revealed as a White trash Protestant in the vein of Brintney Spears and the drunk Bush clan. What's next? The father of Palin's daughter is the family Pastor?
OF course, this nutcase is accused of being Karl Rove in the comments.
Rove tactic and brilliantly done...

I admit it, I can help but admire Karl Rove's cut throat tactics when it comes to politics. The man is a slug but he does understand what makes people tick.

Posting a diary on Daily Kos that is insensitive, racist, sexist and obnoxious under the guise of being liberal is exceedingly clever. All that is needed now is for a talking head like O'Lielly or Insannity to quote back to it as "an example of what the liberal bloggers are saying".

Bravo Monsieur Rove. Now piss off.

Meanwhile, over at another freakshow, another commenter also have Rove on the brain.

This is just too Rovian. Again I say, McCain wants Lieberman, and picked a VP who will drop out of her own accord.
Here's another interesting comment. Can anyone translate?

this another example of right wing hypocasy at its worse. Can you beleive this? This person is running around talking about family values and lecturing the American public when this is what is going on. This is hilorous and let McSame deal with this!
I'd expect the Politico to keep tabs of their comments, but it's also getting ugly there.

Of course. A conservative family that can't even control their own daughter's sexual behavior. Is that what we want in a potential President? An unmarried pregnant girl about to have her second child out of wedlock. Her first, unfortunately, has Downs syndrome. Palin is the WORST choice McCain could have made. The man doesn't think with the head on his shoulders.

Party: NA

I knew the stuff going around was true when i was watching her at the 2nd really in Pennsylvanian and she said her daughter Bristol was in the bus with her brother Trig. Follow the bread crubs. McCain is retarded

Update: Obama reacts.
Obama used the moment to retiterate his beleif that "people's families are off limits and children are especially off-limits."

More to the point, Obams referred to his own birth, when his mother was 18, to say that the issue, for him, was irrelevant. "That shouldn't be the topic of our politics," he said.
More on how this might play.
A few other factors to remember when trying to figure out how this will play out.

* Palin has a VERY strong following among social conservatives who are nearly certain to give her the benefit of the doubt in this situation. She is a known commodity in social conservative circles and is regarded as "one of them" -- a fact that should lessen any criticism from the right.

* Democrats must be VERY careful not to take a false step here. Some Republicans have already insisted that the Obama campaign is behind the rumor-mongering about Sarah, Bristol and Trig -- although in our experience the campaign has not pushed the story AT ALL, in fact they have been encouraging reporters to focus on the issues of difference between the two candidates rather than personal stories. Any sense that Democrats are pushing this idea will almost certainly turn both Sarah and Bristol Palin into sympathetic figures -- and that spells trouble for her detractors.
They might want to also consider comment moderation. This genius wants to see the birth certificate.
I didn't believe it at first... but I've done just a bit of digging.

Gov. Palin did not announce "her" pregnancy until a month before the baby was born. (She'd have been seven months pregnant when she announced this, and apparently hiding it VERY well.)

Gov. Palin was in Texas when "her" water broke, a month early. While experiencing a high-risk pregnancy (her own age, carrying a Down Syndrome baby, and having signs of impending delivery a month early), she DECIDED TO FLY TO ALASKA to have "her" baby in a town of 4,500

Apparently, the flight crew didn't notice that a woman about to deliver was boarding their plane.

Palin did not take maternity leave. Which is a bit odd on its face, but even more odd considering the challenges of learning how to deal with a premature infant who is born with Down Syndrome.

Of course, this evidence is circumstantial. I'd like to see the birth certificate. And if it's shown that she IS the mother, I'd like to see a genetic test (since she's Governor of the state in which "she" gave birth).

Some more genius.
Way to go, all you red state born-again Republican hypocrits with false Christian values. First VP Cheney's daughter is a lesbian then a 17 year old is 7 months pregnant. You are great role models for the rest of us.

I smell a cover up. I believe that Trig is Bristols and the truth will come out.

I feel really sad because I also feel that Gov Palin is being used by John McCain or whom ever is pulling John McCain's strings.

But at the same time we dont need a Britney Spears mom as VP.

Yeah Dave the Dems gave Palin 5 kids, a newborn with special needs, and forced her daugther to get pregnant so they can talk about it. If she is soooo smart, she would have declined McSame's losing white house bid and fouced on the important issues at home.

Update: Apparently Bristol's pregnancy was an open secret up in Wasilla. And, surprise, people reacted like adults.
People in Wasilla are Alaskan tough, so not only does a thing like teen pregnancy not seem like anyone's damn business, but it's also not seen as the calamity so many people in the lower 48 might think it is. This is dangerous country — it's not just the roughneck jobs on cable reality shows. It's real life here. I listened to the absolutely heartbreaking story of how the godfather of Track Palin, Sarah's oldest son, died in small plane crash just minutes after having dropped off four kids. Another family invited me into their home and told their incredible story; with one son in Iraq, their other son was working on a conveyor line in Anchorage, got caught in the belt and had his head partially crushed. He lived to stand across the kitchen table from me and his parents, looking fully healed just three months later, grinning at his dumb luck and wondering what comes next in life. "It makes you realize that a thing like a little teenage pregnancy isn't such a big deal," his mom said. "Bristol—and lots of other girl like her out there — are going to be just fine."
Via Hot Air.

Some more, ahem, reality-based opinion.
Let me disclose something. Bloggers and progressive activists talk to each other and strategize together. We didn't want to touch the Sarah Palin pregnancy story with a 10-foot pole and the overwhelming consensus was to strongly discourage anyone that was running with the rumors. These rumors were started in the spring by Republicans in Alaska and not by the progressive blogosphere. We stifled the story as much as we could without deleting people's diaries.
Oh, while we're at it, did you know Todd Palin had a DUI in 1986? That too, apparently, is newsworthy.

To cleanse you palate after that, check out this touching item from Ed Morrissey. Meanwhile, LGF has the reaction from Dr. James Dobson.

Thanks to Ace and Michelle for the links!

Update: The Democrats' 800-pound gorilla checks in with this classy comment.
Another Palin Pregnancy; Unclear if baby is fetus' uncle
Some Jew-hating kooks are getting in on the action.
Next up:


These bastard intentionally threw this entire family under the bus on purpose to using a straw man to make the Lieberman selection more acceptable.

Has everyone had it with Karl Rove’s evil act yet?
