Bristol Palin: Juneau Meets Juno

Uh-oh; looks like Alaska governor and John McCain’s pick for vice presidential running mate Sarah Palin might want to have a pow-wow with Lynne Spears; they have a lot in common.

The Republican national convention had a baby-shaped cloud hanging over it yesterday after Palin announced that her 17-year-old unmarried daughter, Bristol Palin, is five months pregnant.

The announcement came on the heels of Internet rumors that Sarah’s five-month-old son, Trig, had actually been birthed by Bristol.

No word on whether this development will change the governor’s endorsement of abstinence-only sex education, but Palin insists that her daughter will carry the child to term.

“We’re proud of Bristol’s decision to have the baby and even prouder to become grandparents,” she noted.

She also claims that Bristol plans to marry the child-to-be’s presumptive father, Levi Johnston—whose MySpace page emphatically states, “I don’t want kids.” Of course, that sort of thing doesn’t always turn out as planned

Compounding the issue, photos of the underage Bristol allegedly drinking have surfaced on the Internet.

Wow; there might be questions about Sarah Palin’s lack of experience, but her daughter seems to be ahead of the curve…
