Bristol Palin, the 17-year-old daughter of Republican Vice President Nominee Sarah Palin, is pregnant and will keep the baby and marry the father. John McCain was aware of her pregnancy before he chose her mother for his running mate. This might be another strike at the reasoning and judgment of McCain’s controversial decision. They are obviously pro-choice, but they really need some lessons on birth control. Congrats!

When Palin was asked about the VP spot recently, she said the following in an interview with CNBC:
“But as for that VP talk all the time, I’ll tell you, I still can’t answer that question until somebody answers for me what is it exactly that the VP does everyday? I’m used to being very productive and working real hard in an administration. We want to make sure that that VP slot would be a fruitful type of position, especially for Alaskans and for the things that we’re trying to accomplish up here for the rest of the U.S., before I can even start addressing that question.”
