Sarah Palin’s 17 yr old Daughter Pregnant News Released as Hurricane Pounds Gulf Coast
News broke today that Sarah Palin the Republican Nominee for Vice President 17 year old Daughter Bristol is 5 months pregnant, she is to wed the baby’s father at time still to be determined in the future.
There are a couple interesting things in this story, one is that they are releasing this information to correct a rumor. That rumor was that Sarah Palin’s youngest child (the one with Down Syndrome) is actually Bristol’s (17 yr old Daughter) and Sarah Palin faked the pregnancy. This is not true according to the Palin Family, and I would accept them at their word on that.
There is another interesting aspect to this story.
Republican presidential candidate McCain was aware of Bristol Palin’s pregnancy before he chose her mother for his running mate, the aide said.
“Senator McCain knew this and felt in no way did it disqualify her from being vice president,” said the aide. “Families have difficulties sometimes, and lucky for her she has a supportive family.”
They have known about this pregnancy and choose to release the information as Hurricane Gustav is pounding the gulf coast. Fox news was the first to break this story at approximately noon today, followed by the other news outlets.
Is it a coincidence this information is released at the same time a massive hurricane dominates all news? We certainly can consider that it’s just a coincidence, but it’s just not sitting well with me that the campaign knew this information and choose today during the height of the storm to release the information. It just smells of an attempt to bury the headline. On this one I think I have to call shenanigans on the McCain Campaign.
