The Palin campaign confirmed only moments ago that Bristol Palin, the daughter of Governor Sarah Palin, is currently five months pregnant. This puts to rest rumors that Bristol is actually Trig’s mother, but raises a whole range of other, more perilous issues for the McCain/Palin campaign.
The news first reached us through an article in the venerable British rag, the Independent. According to Governor Palin’s press release, McCain knew about the pregnancy before naming Sarah Palin his pick for VP, but decided to go ahead with the announcement, anyway.
According to the press release, Bristol plans to keep the baby and will marry the child’s father.
This just in: the 2008 presidential campaign is now being turned into a made-for-TV movie for the Lifetime channel.
