In yet another surprising development in the Republican presidential campaign, vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin confirmed in a statement Monday that her 17-year-old daughter Bristol is five months pregnant.
This is interesting for several reasons:
First, Palin is a conservative Christian who denounces such actions, yet could not instill the same "values" in her own child.
Second, it really boggles the imagination to "believe" that the McCain team thoroughly vetted this woman. I mean, c'mon. Pregnant unmarried daughter, under investigation for abuse of office, only 20 months of "experience" as governor.
Third, if they did vet her, and then decided that she was the most qualified person to be picked for Veep, then that speaks volumes about McCain's ability to make the tough decisions... it says he can't.
