I thought that was pretty funny. Wasn't it Family Guy where Meg thought you could get pregnant if a guy stuck his penis in her ear?
Maybe that's what Bristol thought could make you pregnant. I know we are "supposed to leave the candidate's children out of the race" and lord knows 17 year olds have their own minds about things, but I do think her pregnancy--when you take into concideration Palin's aggressive abstinence policy--is fair game in that sense.
Here's hoping I didn't jump the gun on Kirsten's post--which will be ten times more awesome than mine. I just keep picturing Palin's discussion with her daughter ("didn't I tell you not to mess around with boys that way?" "Mom, I know, it just fell in there! I didn't know what to do!")
Contrast this with my mom's more liberal but far more effective method of "abstinence training", and I quote:
"M, if you have sex, use a condom. In fact, use two. Because with your luck, the condom won't work. And you will RUIN, I mean RUIN, your ENTIRE LIFE and the boy's life and the child's life and my life and your brothers life and everyone will be so horribly disappointed in you. Plus, it's going to hurt that first time. Like, a lot. Really, really bad."
Yeah, that was way more effective than "you're a bad person, and you'll get VD." I was a pretty old virgin when I decided to "get it over with". Palin had already popped out a couple kids by that age.
