No, not you, my loyal SavvyFatty folks, but:
17-year old daughter of Alaska Governor and the GOP's Vice Presidental pick, Sarah Palin
And no, not this week's federal holiday that got my Venezias fitting like a second, thick, denim skin after eating far too much "poak" and "tayduh salad" while imbibing mixed drainks involving champagne, wine, and Cherry Tampico, (<<--Class, at its finest) but an ACTUAL labor day. April 18th of this year, to be exact.
Follow me, nah!!
You can't...since for some odd, type-jainky "I SMELL A COVER-UP" reason, the Daily KOS story that was posted about the Desperate Housewives-"Bree Van De Kamp"-type situation involving Sarah Palin and her teen daughter has mysteriously disappeared!
But the long of the short is:
It's believed that Sarah Palin did not give birth to her fifth child, Trig Paxson Van Palin, who was born this past Spring with Down Syndrome. Instead her teen daughter, Bristol, reportedly secretly birthed the child and turned custody over to her parents to hide her transgression.

But now, since Gov. Palin and her pals are so Pro-Choice and Anti-Birth Control, Lil' Miss Premarital Pussy Pumpstress, has turned up knocked up AGAIN!
However this time, with the Senior Ms. Palin in the national spotlight, this pregnancy cannot be hidden or covered up with Baby Trig and his blankie.
My opinion, in short:THIS is exactly what happens when you refuse to talk to your children about birth control. And when you sit so high on your Conservative High Horse thinking that it's impossible to even fathom that your child may slip up and get knocked up.
NEWSFLASH to parents with teenagers:
Believe me: I know!
Many moon'leniums ago, I was a teen with working parents, a lot of free time, and a bus pass that could take me to any one of my ex's homes at any given time of day or evening. I remember being HOT AS FUCK for my high school sweetheart(s) and rising EARLY in the morn to ride the bus across Southeast to see them and staying up late on the phone describing in GRAPHIC detail** what I was going to do to them the next time I saw them. (** And I always kept my promise...right, TAL and SLB?! HAHA!)
But real talk: Having a sex and/or birth control convo with your child has never decreased nor enhanced their desire to screw.
We're biologically designed to be attracted to the opposite sex. (Well, some of us. **side-eyes Puff and the rest of the Hip Hop Closet**) But there's nothing unnatural about the urge to fuck. It's in us all. The best thing a parent can do is equip their children, especially their teen girls, with the tools necessary to prevent an early or unwanted pregnancy.
This cover-up and subsequent scandal could have easily been avoided with just a teeny-tiny ounce of what I like to call "Truth." Instead of being anti-birth control, they should have been Pro-Sex Ed. They should have discussed the consequences of unprotected sex as well as the consequences of getting preggo while Mommy is trying to be the Republican Hilly C. And since that NEVER happened, they are about to be grandparents for the second time...under the scrutiny of the entire country.
What the Right-Wingers refuse to realize while on their Moral High Horses is that there's not ONE family in this wide world that has not been affected by a teenage pregnancy and that being a teen parent does NOT mean you or your child are destined to not be be shit.
Hell, I'm a product of a couple of horny high schoolers, as are many of my friends, co-workers, aunts, uncles, great grandparents, cousins, etc.
Yes, I bring home a can of Tab and a Homies figurine every 2 weeks, but I think I'm doing pretty well, despite my humble, and oft-thought "shameful" beginnings. Yes! It is embarassing to have a pregnant child, especially when you've done everything in your power to raise that child "right." But like your ass after eating anything off a Taco Bell menu: SHIT HAPPENS!
The Palins could not control Bristol's actions, but they COULD HAVE controlled their reaction to her sitaution. And a cover-up was NOT the correct, MORAL thing to do which is why this situation brings about many questions regarding Sarah Palin's morals, especially since she's up for a position which would make her the second most powerful person in the WORLD.
As a person who could possibly (but HOPEFULLY NOT!) become her constituent, I needz to know:
- If you'll lie to the public about something as simple as a teenage pregnancy, what ELSE will you lie about?
- If you cannot keep your own daughter's legs closed, how can you help our daughters to remain chaste?
I've shared my views.
What are your thoughts and opinions on the Palin Pregnancy(ies)?
