Bristol Palin, Underage Drinking & Father Don’t Want Kid

Posted in H.L. News on September 2nd, 2008 10:15 am by HL

Bristol Palin underage drinking
Excerpt:

It was announced yesterday that Bristol Palin, the 17-year-old daughter of Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin, is five-months pregnant. Now, pictures are surfacing on the Internet of the teenage girl supposedly drinking underage.

On top of all of that, The New York Post has identified the baby daddy as Levi Johnston (inset), Bristol’s high school sweetheart.

The teen hockey player’s personal MySpace page admits to him being ‘in a relationship’ but also states, “I don’t want kids.”

HL’s Take:
Could it get any worse for McCain? Well…Bush is speaking at the RNC tonight, so yeah it could. As they say in that commercial for that posionous fast food company “I’m Mc Lovin it”

MSNBC is reporting that waters from Hurricane Gustav, now a Category 2 storm, have overtopped the Industrial Canal barrier in New Orleans, and FEMA Deputy Director Harvey E. Johnson has warned that New Orleans will be “at least partially flood[ed].” Officials have evacuated 2 million people from Louisiana, but an estimated 10,000 remain in New Orleans. Hurricane-force winds also “slammed into oil terminals around Port Fourchon,” which is southwest of New Orleans and where “56 percent of the imported and Gulf of Mexico oil entering the United States passes.”

Northern Underexposure
ST. PAUL, Minn. — By all rights, there should be a revolt at this week’s Republican convention against John McCain’s selection of Sarah Palin as his running mate — for the very same reasons so many Republicans opposed President Bush’s selection of Harriet Miers for the Supreme Court. Palin is, if anything, less qualified for the vice presidency (and the presidency) than Miers was for the court. But there is one big difference: Palin passes all the right-wing litmus tests, which means she is unlikely to suffer Miers’ fate.

How Palin Could Help
ST. PAUL, Minn. — This one was really different. John McCain has flummoxed the leaders of his Republican Party and most of the media by picking Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin as his running mate. It’s a choice no other candidate conceivably could have made — a typical McCain gamble, unpredictable in its consequences. The least plausible part of the McCain camp’s scenario for Palin is the hope that she will help capture dissident Hillary Clinton voters. If my reporting in New Hampshire and Colorado is right, there were fewer of those voters — even before the Democratic convention in Denver — than polls had suggested. After Bill and Hillary Clinton’s endorsements of Barack Obama, the number shrank further, and those liberal women are not likely to be attracted to a hard-right conservative such as Palin.
