"We have been blessed with five wonderful children who we love with all our heart and mean everything to us. Our beautiful daughter Bristol came to us with news that as parents we knew would make her grow up faster than we had ever planned. We're proud of Bristol's decision to have her baby and even prouder to become grandparents. As Bristol faces the responsibilities of adulthood, she knows she has our unconditional love and support.
"Bristol and the young man she will marry are going to realize very quickly the difficulties of raising a child, which is why they will have the love and support of our entire family. We ask the media to respect our daughter and Levi's privacy as has always been the tradition of children of candidates."
With that, Sarah Palin put an end to the Democrat Liberal Leftist rumors and conspiracy theories that baby Trig is actually Bristol's child.
Now the cover up conspiracies begin. Liberals just can't be satisfied, not even after all the Republicans and Conservatives are dead. They will just find some other target - probably their own. Such unhappy people. A McCain aide said,
"The despicable rumors that have been spread by liberal blogs, some even with Barack Obama's name in them, is a real anchor around the Democratic ticket, pulling them down in the mud in a way that certainly juxtaposes themselves against their 'campaign of change.'"Sarah Palin gave birth to a handicapped child and decided early in the pregnancy to keep the child. Bristol Palin is 17 years old and pregnant. She and Levi have decided to keep the baby and provide a home with two parents. Will it work out? Maybe. Maybe not. But that shouldn't be anyone's business beyond the family. Most certainly it should not be fodder for a political campaign.
I don't often do this, but I agree with Daily Kos writer rpj2004,
Let's show some respect here about what Bristol is going through. Yeah, so Sarah Palin advocates abstinence programs, but lets remember Bristol is a real person and none of us would want our children put under the spotlight like this. Any "political gain" can find its way without us in individual voters' families - everybody will hear about this news. I posted this diary to put the rumors to rest.Sarah and Bristol have owned up to their responsibilities and not cowered under public pressure. They know their values and are holding to them. Maybe Bristol and Levi did make a mistake, but like rpj2004 says, she's "a real person." Real people make mistakes. Real adults take responsibility for those mistakes.
