Palin’s Personal Drama becomes Political

John McCain may not have been all that far off-base when he likened presidential candidates to celebrities and especially at a time that is so close to the election, these forerunners are more in the public eye than ever. Days after announcing that Sarah Palin is to be McCain’s running mate in the upcoming election, it comes out that Palin’s 17 year old daughter, Bristol, is pregnant. Scandal!

I think this news may actually help out McCain’s campaign a little bit as the entire country seems to entered Barack-Bonanza. Because he already knew of the news (or so they say) before asking Palin to be his running mate, voters may see this as an area of leniency is the Republican’s no-nonsense manner of running things. However, because they are Republicans, and one would never want them to lean too far over to the left side – preggo Bristol will be marrying the boy that got her into trouble. From People,

“Alaska governor Palin, who was selected to be John McCain’s vice president last week, said, “Bristol came to us with news that as parents we knew would make her grow up faster than we had ever planned. As Bristol faces the responsibilities of adulthood, she knows she has our unconditional love and support.”

Bristol plans to marry the father of the child, 18-year-old Levi Johnston, Palin continued in the statement. “Bristol and the young man she will marry are going to realize very quickly the difficulties of raising a child, which is why they will have the love and support of our entire family.”

If there is anything funny about this story (because really, there’s nothing funny about a 17 year old mom,) it is that the story came out because Bristol was actually thought by many to actually be the mother of Palin’s four-month-old son, Trig. Wow, people may watch Desperate Housewives a little too much.
