    There is too much to leave alone in this---not to mention a bunch of other stuff. Don't worry---the only people who pay attention to the National Enquirer are.................a key demographic.

      The speed of your response tells me you did not look at the very long and detailed post at tpm.

      I don't even have to say whether I believe 1 percent or 99 percent of it. I am saying the National Enquirer, which got a huge financial boost from the Edwards story---and a boost in credibility---is not about to leave this alone.

          Palin confirms daughter's pregnancy


          By Steve Holland
          Monday, 1 September


          The Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin has announced that her 17-year-old daughter is pregnant, 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 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.
          Bristol Palin made the decision on her own to keep the baby, McCain aides said.
          "We have been blessed with five wonderful children who we love with all our heart and mean everything to us," the Palins' statement said.
          "Our beautiful daughter Bristol came to us with news that as parents we knew would make her grow up faster than we had ever planned. As Bristol faces the responsibilities of adulthood, she knows she has our unconditional love and support," the Palins said.
          The Palins asked the news media to respect the young couple's privacy.
          "Bristol and the young man she will marry are going to realize very quickly the difficulties of raising a child, which is why they will have the love and support of our entire family. We ask the media, respect our daughter and Levi's privacy as has always been the tradition of children of candidates," the statement concluded.
          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.
          In the short period since she was announced last Friday, Palin has helped to energize the Republican Party's conservative base, giving the McCain camp fresh energy going into the campaign for the November 4th election against Democrat Barack Obama.
          McCain officials said the news of the daughter's pregnancy was being released to rebut what one aide called "mud-slinging and lies" circulating on liberal blog sites.
          According to these rumors, Sarah Palin had faked a pregnancy and pretended to have given birth in May to her fifth child, a son named Trig who has Down syndrome. The rumor was that Trig was actually Bristol Palin's child and that Sarah Palin was the grandmother.
          A senior McCain campaign official said the McCain camp was appalled that these rumors had not only been spread around liberal blog sites and partisan Democrats, but also were the subject of heightened interest from mainstream news media.
          "The despicable rumors that have been spread by liberal blogs, some even with Barack Obama's name in them, is a real anchor around the Democratic ticket, pulling them down in the mud in a way that certainly juxtaposes themselves against their 'campaign of change,'" a senior aide said.

                  Wait, are you being serious?

                  Around '96, he said something along the lines of "no wonder Chelsea is so ugly; her father is Janet Reno."

                    Is no one else more bothered by the idea that a 17 yo is getting married? They will be divorced before they are 20 and the kid will be very messed up.

                              I don't think it is ever ideal for a 17 year old to marry. However, to make a blanket statement that they will be divorced by 20 is unfair.

                              I have seen both friends and children of friends in this situation. A lot of the success or failure of the marriage and the child comes down to the support system that is in place for both the couple and the child. If there is a loving family that is willing to make sacrifices to help the couple and child, it can work.

                              Fortunately, in only one case that I have seen firsthand have the marriage and the child failed. It can directly be traced back to the fact that the parents of the girl who became pregnant disowned her and the husband.

                              While I have no direct knowledge of the Palin's as parents, why don't we see how they do with this challenge.
