When it was revealed that Sarah Palin's unmarried teenage daughter was pregnant, it was a tough time for family values folks. But they were quick to point out that Bristol was doing the right thing by getting married because babies get their magic from having two parents (of the opposite sex, of course).
And then John McCain stood with the happy couple, while Levi felt the definite pressure of a rifle muzzle at his back.
The election came and went, and yet, no marriage. That was somewhat understandable — Sarah was a little busy.
A few months pass, and the baby (Tripp) was born, and yet, still no marriage. What was the hold-up?
If you ask me, they never intended to marry. But of course, they couldn't say that at the time and alienate the religious right.
So I am shocked, SHOCKED, I tell you.
Now for some details:
Levi's sister Mercede Johnston says Bristol actually broke up with Levi more than a month ago, is not attending school and rarely lets her baby daddy see their young son. Mercede also says Bristol even told him that she hates him and, when she learned she was pregnant, wished the baby wasn't his.
That's interesting, because in an interview just last month with FOX's Gretta Van Susteren, Bristol said the 19-year-old Levi is a hands-on dad and that they planned on marrying after finishing their education.
