Young Love Comes to an End in Alaska

  • Split: Bristol Palin, 18, and Levi Johnston, 19 -- he confirmed to the Associated Press last night. The couple, whose pregnancy rocked the 2008 campaign (son Tripp was born in December), ended their engagement "a while ago," said Johnston, while denying some stories circulating about the breakup. Bristol, the eldest daughter of Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, said she was devastated by Internet rumors (Star magazine yesterday quoted Johnston's sister Mercede claiming Bristol kept their family from visiting the baby). "Unfortunately, my family has seen many people say and do many things to 'cash in' on the Palin name," Bristol said in a statement released by her mother's PAC. No comment from the governor.

  • Married: Mandy Moore, 24, and Ryan Adams, 34, Tuesday in Savannah, Ga. Just four weeks after they got engaged, the actress and rocker slipped unrecognized into the county probate office for a marriage license and tied the knot, reports People. First marriage for both.

    In some parts of the USA, we would call that offspring of the unwed Bristol Palin
    a "love-child", but in the rest of the world, it would simply be known as a "bastard". And what does Deuteronomy 23:2
    say about bastards?

    So what else is new? The only people surprised by this are the Repub right-wingnuts. Everybody else in the world had it nailed for typical "True Romance" mag white trash stuff. Me? I'm just sooo thankful that the trailer twot and her nutso mother aren't doing their thing in the White House!

    "And what does Deuteronomy 23:2

    To put it in proper context for you in relationship to the rest of The Book... A bastard is someone that doesn't know their Heavenly Father.

    I hope that helps.

    Looks to me like two kids who made a mistake have chosen not to compound the mistake. I'm sure everyone wishes them well regardless of what they may think of Sarah Palin's politics.

    is this a surprise? well maybe the fact that they kept up the charade past election day is a surprise.

    And where is that "official comment" from the guv's office...kinda like this one in December: (my daughter and Johnston) "are committed to accomplish (sic) what millions of other young parents have accomplished, to provide a loving and secure environment for their child."

    And to think we almost elected this Trailer Trash to the White House...yes folks...that is essentially for whom you are voting when you cast your ballot for the VP...the President. That this woman or ANYONE who voted for her thought that she was qualified to be President is truly an embarrassment to this country.

    Why did I never see any coverage of the things Levi had posted on his MySpace page shortly after the pregnancy became public? Anyone who saw it could foresee this outcome, and if it had been the boyfriend of a teenage Obama daughter posting those things I'm sure conservative talk radio would have had a field day. I guess it's different when it happens to a family from the "real" America.

    What a shock - NOT. Anyone who thought they were going to get married I have a bridge for sale.

    Wait a few years and we will be seeing the two obama biatchs get pregnant in their teens. Just like black trash stuff. Me? I'm just sooo thankful that their affirmative action hustler jugeared cluelass drone father and their freakishly hideous, racist, tree swinging aboreal mother be doin their thang in the White House!

    Lest BenAMarine should doubt the meaning that Deuteronomy 23:2 attributes to the word "bastard", let him look at the word in its context. The preceding verse (Deuteronomy 23:1) says: "He whose testicles are crushed shall not enter the assembly of the Lord".
    Not being chaste is bad enough, but being proud of sinning is far worse.
