As this story continues to evolve it appears that the nasty left has really bitten off far more than it will ever be able to chew.
In this article on the TIME website, Nathan Thornburgh completely destroys the contention that this is SCANDAL.
The opening lines tell the story:
So his name is Levi. That’s about the only thing that I didn’t know about Bristol Palin’s pregnancy. The rest of the details I picked up almost without trying, while talking about other things with townsfolk — some who know the governor and her family well, some who don’t. It was, more or less, an open secret. And everyone was saying the same thing: the governor’s 17-year-old daughter is pregnant, the father is her boyfriend, and it’s really nobody’s business beyond that. I happen to agree.
Then Thornburgh winds up the story with a bang:
The Palin family seems to share the same pro-life values going back at least as far back as anyone here can remember, and it wouldn’t be at all surprising if Bristol wore those values, however imperfectly, as her own. At least, that’s what the town thinks. And Wasilla, above all, is pretty sensible.
Me thinks the nutroots have really put their collective foot in it this time.
