How Will The Republicans Spin This?

Sarah Palin’s daughter is pregnant. She is also not married. Doesn’t this make her some kind of terrible sinner in the eyes of all the fundamentalist Christians that love “family values” so much? I’m sure that I’ll enjoy all the spin that will be put on this one in the days to come. Of course, the biggest spin will be all about how wonderful it is that she’s not having an abortion. Somehow this will mean more than the unmarried part.

From To rebut rumors, Palin says daughter, 17, pregnant by Steve Holland:

The 17-year-old daughter of Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin is pregnant, Palin said on Monday in an announcement intended to knock down rumors by liberal bloggers that Palin faked her own pregnancy to cover up for her child.

Bristol Palin, one of Alaska Gov. Palin's five children with her husband, Todd, is about five months pregnant and is going to keep the child and marry the father, the Palins said in a statement released by the campaign of Republican presidential candidate John McCain.
Jesus is just alright with all the politicians these days, and premarital sex must be alright with John McCain:
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.
And the fundies will still vote for McCain because he stands for killing foreigners and letting "babies" live.

Hypocrisy has never stopped any politician before, why should it now. Right?
