Is This An Election Or A Prime-Time Soap Opera?

First came the whispers that Republican VP candidate Sarah Palin had faked her last pregnancy and that her 5 month old son was actually her grandson born to her eldest daughter. How very Bree Van de Kamp-Hodge a la Desperate Housewives.

What's next... an affair with the gardener or a mysterious box buried in the back yard?

While watching Hurricane Gustav coverage today, I saw news break that Palin's 17 year old daughter is in fact currently in the family way (and in true Protestant Republican fashion, will soon be marrying the baby's daddy). Despite cries of "leave the poor girl alone", I do have this to say to her mother: How's that preaching abstinence only high school sex education program that you advocate in your home state of Alaska working out? Yeah... not so well, huh? Maybe some free condoms in the nurse's office wouldn't have been such a bad idea after all.
