SARAH Palin Watch: Anorak’s look at Sarah Palin in the news…

BBC: The BBC is leading with news that Sarah Palin’s teenage daughter Bristol (he-he) is with child. She is pictured holding her four-month old brother Trig, the one some wrongly claim is hers.

The BBC’s Sian Williams mentions rumours that have been circulating on the internet. The BBC is the official broadcaster of unfounded rumour and teenage pregnacy.

ITV: Palin confirms daughter’s pregnancy

Mr McCain’s spokesman Steve Schmidt said: “Senator McCain’s view is this is a private family matter. As parents, the Palins love their daughter unconditionally and are going to support their daughter. Leave the kids alone.”

DAILY TELEGRAPH: “US elections: Laura Bush defends Sarah Palin against sexist attacks – Laura Bush has rallied to the defence of Sarah Palin, John McCain’s presidential running mate, warning that Democratic attacks on the governor of Alaska could backfire.”

“The other side will have to be particularly careful,” the First Lady said. Asked if the noisy reaction to the story is evidence of sexism in the American media, which Hillary Clinton claimed to have identified during her battle with Mr Obama, Mrs Bush said: “I think that’s a possibility.”

TIME: “A Slow, Shaky Start for the GOP”

Without headline speakers, the media here had little to talk about except the Arctic answer to All My Children — McCain’s running mate, Governor Sarah Palin of Alaska. In today’s episode, the campaign announced that Palin’s 17-year-old daughter Bristol is pregnant. If elected, Palin will be the first vice-president in memory to take the oath of office with a child and a grandchild in diapers.

HUFF POST: What If Bristol Palin Was Black?

What do you think conservatives would have to say about her? “Typical, urban youth with no sense of responsibility raised with loose morals who plans to depend on the state to take care of her child.” You know it. It’s not within dispute. That’s exactly what they would say.

No need to think, then.


“I believe John McCain chose Gov. Palin because he truly believes that women who supported Hillary – an experienced, brilliant, life-long public servant – would vote for him because his Vice President has two x chromosomes.”

X marks the spot.

SAWF: “Bristol Palin’s baby daddy describes himself as a ‘[bleep]in redneck’”

September 2, 2008 (Sawf News) – Bristol Palin’s baby daddy has been identified as 17-year-old hockey player Levi Johnston who describes himself on his MySpace page as a “[bleep]in redneck” and acknowledges he is in a relationship, but says “I don’t want kids.”

“But I live to play hockey. I like to go camping and hang out with the boys, do some fishing, shoot some s- – – and just f – – -in’ chillin’ I guess,” says the very eloquent lad.
