Ever noticed all you ever heard was Palin saying “Bristol and the young man she will marry.” You never heard the “young man” say he was going to get married.
He doesn’t want to, and he won’t if McCain-Palin loses.
If he did, he would have a while ago.
Of course, he might just do it if they win. The White House is a lot more fun than Alaska.
Just a prediction.
Well that was going to be my prediction and post until I happened across this mindblowing article this afternoon:
McCain camp prays for Palin wedding
The marriage of the vice-presidential candidate’s pregnant teenage daughter could lift a flagging campaign
In an election campaign notable for its surprises, Sarah Palin, the Republican vice- presidential candidate, may be about to spring a new one — the wedding of her pregnant teenage daughter to her ice-hockey-playing fiancé before the November 4 election.
Inside John McCain’s campaign the expectation is growing that there will be a popularity boosting pre-election wedding in Alaska between Bristol Palin, 17, and Levi Johnston, 18, her schoolmate and father of her baby. “It would be fantastic,” said a McCain insider. “You would have every TV camera there. The entire country would be watching. It would shut down the race for a week.” (link)
Mindblowing. I’m just sort of speechless. Talk about a shotgun wedding.
Think about that . . . what a horrible basis to select a Presidential ticket . . . because of some nice WEDDING PICTURES!
Anybody who defended Sarah Palin, and honestly believed her family should be off limits, should give some deep thought to her playing politics with the lives of children (and hockey jocks in the wrong place at the wrong time for that matter).
If that’s the kind of strategy the McCain camp is relying on, the “country first” slogan is getting more pathetic everyday (I won’t even get into the campaign suspension ridiculousness right now).
Note to self – never date a politician’s daughter.
