Sarah Palin's Daughter Is Pregnant...

...and she should be left alone. Period.

Shame on those who say that Sarah Palin and the McCain campaign are using this for political gain. Shame on those who started the rumors that Governor Palin faked a pregnancy and that her five-month-old son is actually her daughter's. Shame on those who are going, "Tsk, tsk, poor thing, glamorizing teenage pregnancy."

LEAVE BRISTOL PALIN ALONE. She's got enough on her plate being five months pregnant. Now her mom's a candidate for Vice President of the United States, and I'm sure bloggers are going to scrutinize this the way the media is between coverage of Hurricane Gustav.

This is not one of those blogs that will judge, criticize, or berate such a situation that should remain out of the public eye as much as possible. Kudos to the Palin family, and both the Obama and McCain campaigns, for handling this with class and aplomb. Teenage pregnancy is an unfortunate situation, but what Bristol Palin needs most of all right now is love and support from her family, and the respect of the American media.

Now please, American media, no candids of a pregnant teenager in our tabloids or glossy magazines. I implore you once again, LEAVE BRISTOL PALIN ALONE!
