Palin's Daughter IS pregnant now...

Is marriage defined in the Constitution? I didn't think it was but I am not Constitutional lawyer (like Barack Obama is hehe). Not trying to guano this thread with a gay marriage debate, I am just curious about Palin's response to that question.

She was talking to an Alaskan news media outlet. I think when she said "our constitution", I think she meant Alaska's constitution. Many states have amended their constitution to stipulate that marriage is between a man and woman (which works for me).

... Oh, and UK members can correct me if I'm wrong, but I think "bristols" is cockney slang for boobs

The founding fathers comment was in reference to the Pledge of the Allegience - inaccurately - which is a national issue. I still think she was talking about Alaska's constitution.

I think if this was a 17 year old daughter of Obama, it would be a non-issue, but that's just IMO. To me I'd rather have someone in leadership who deals with things that come up, even if they aren't according to plan, rather than someone who chains their daughter up to keep her from having sex. Lets be honest here, if teenagers want to have sex, they're going to find a way, there's really no way to stop them. Also how would anyone know if she wasn't on birth control? Skipping one pill can get you pregnant, a condom breaking can get you pregnant. I think you also have to take into consideration that most kids usually rebel against their parents. Ever met any preacher's kids (no offense to any here) most I've met weren't goody goodies, most were pretty wild. I just think people fail to remember that she's a kid and just as likely to do any of the same things other 17 year old kids are doing.

My husband is a PK...he got into PLENTY of trouble in his youth, while managing to keep up the facade of perfect-preacher's-kid in church.
I think if it were Biden's (since he's Palin's opponent) 17 year old child we'd be hearing even more about it as more evidence of an immoral liberal without values. But that's just my opinion.
I don't think anyone even CARES that Palin's daughter is pregnant. What they care about is that Palin made this announcement to try to quell the rumors of her own pregnancy being faked. It just seems like Bristol is being thrown under the bus...and that ain't cool. Palin is sacrificing her own kid...the Dems aren't doing it.
GASP! She had the sex before marriage?!

Can't wait to here how the judgmental asshats who ***** and moan about this type of stuff will defend this one.

And , no, no one can chain their kids to the house, but it's wonderfully ironic how someone who insists that their biblical teachings prevent teen pregnancy and all other societal ills--and want to legally force those teachings on everyone else--would end up in this situation.

I can see why it seems like Bristol is being thrown under the bus to quell the rumor, but the truth would come out eventually (probably soon... here's what my belly looked like at 20 and 24 weeks), so why not now?

"This shouldn't be part of our politics," he continued, "It has no relevance to Gov. Palin's performance as governor, or her potential performance as a vice president.

"And so I would strongly urge people to back off these kinds of stories," he said. "You know my mother had me when she was 18, and how a family deals with issues and, you know, teenage children, that shouldn't be the topic of our politics and I hope that anybody who is supporting me understands that's off limits."

Sorry but this just screams DOUBLE STANDARD!!!

I don't really care about this. All it does is show that abstinence-only education is as worthless as teets on a boar.

What I do care about, however, is the fact that Palin was a member of an Alaskan secession organization. So we want someone in line for President of the United States who didn't even want her state to be part of the United States? Nevermind all the evidence of abuse of her powers and lies she has already told about her positions on Alaska issues already springing up.

The biggest concern, apart from the obvious insulting, pandering to the Hillary supporters not fully on board with Obama, when there were qualified Republican women out there is the fact that McCain and his people obviously have made a rash decision without properly vetting this woman and have piss poor judgment about key positions. Sound familiar?
Woooo! I can post again! My password didn't work for a few days and it was killing me to be able to read this thread, but not reply to it...though that's probably for the best considering how events have turned.

Well, whatever the story (or non-story) is behind this "revelation", I honestly feel for both Palin & her daughter. It can't be easy to deal with this, especially when someone is in the international spotlight. If Palin felt the need to put this out there to quell rumors of Trig's birth, then that's just sad. And I can't imagine being in Bristol's shoes....teen pregnancy carries enough stigma without the whole freakin' world knowing that YOU are a pregnant teen.
