Baby Boom! Republican VP Nominee 17-yr old daughter pregnanat

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.

VIDEO: McCain’s VP Pick Palin Facing Ethics Investigation

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.” Thoughts anyone…..

Looks like Fat Joe is disgusted with Daddy Yankee’s endorsement of Senator John McCain. The Bronx rapper has in a recent interview with MTV denounced the Reggaeton superstar for supporting the Republican candidate in the run for the Presidency. Joe even went as far to say that he would quite happily sit down and school Daddy Yankee on the subject of politics as he believed the remarks came from him out “for a look,” or the fact that he is “not educated on politics.” Joe like many other artists and entertainment stars have all been in Denver for the Democratic Convention which saw Chicago Senator Barack Obama make his speech last night in front of 75,000 people. Obama who made his speech 45 years to the date since Martin Luther King made his ‘I have a dream speech ‘ had the crowd on their feet with his words of unity and change for his country. “America, we cannot turn back,”  Obama said. “We cannot walk alone. At this moment, in this election, we must pledge once more to walk into the future.”


Today marks the 45th anniversary for the day Martin Luther King delivered his ‘I have a dream speech’ at the Lincoln Memorial during the March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom back in 1963. The speech was without a shadow of a doubt one of the most poignant of the twentieth century and one which signified a defining chapter in th Civil Rights Movement. Tonight will also see the new hope for America Barack Obama address the Democrat Party at the convention in Denver Colorado with his interpretation of ‘change’ and what can and will be done for the country with the Democrats at the helm once again. Last night Bill Clinton followed the precedent set by his wife and former runner in the race for the Whitehouse, Hilary, in declaring support for the Chicago Senator.
