Sarah Palin's daughter is pregnant...that is all

Sarah Palin's 17 year old daughter is confirmed to be pregnant.

Is it any of the public's business, since it is not Sarah? Maybe. Maybe not. I tend to think the kid deserves her privacy, but I also think Sarah's portrayal of herself and her values deserves a little scrutiny. The age of consent is 16 in Alaska. There is a fine line with respecting the rights of a minor, and I do think that if there was no prevention, abstinence, or abortion, there is no hypocrisy (just failed parenting techniques).

However, the issue, for me (and hopefully you) is a) John McCain's judgment in picking this person and b) no one knows the square root of f*ck-all about Governor Sarah Palin. There are sooo many other reasons to be worried about a Palin Vice-Presidency.
