    Will the McCain campaign exploit the upcoming Bristol Palin / Redneck Johnston nuptials for political gain?
    It would be nice to get some straight talk from McCain about whether or not the family of his VP pick is off limits or not. It appears that they are more than willing to have the family be within limits as long as it serves them, and out of bounds when it doesn't.

    That, my friends, is not straight talk. We'll see how this plays out.

    Oh, and then there is the tacit admission that shutting down the race for a week would be good for McCain. Why? Because he's floudering right now. If his campaign was firing on all cylinders, he wouldn't want anything to distract from that. The fact that he does want a week-long distraction speaks volumes. It also speaks to the reason he wanted a "game-changing moment" by "suspending" his campaign and using the phone from his office in DC rather than using the phone from his campaign jet.

    People see right through this stuff...

    I feel sorry for the two youngsters. A shotgun wedding to benefit the political career of an old bloke they'd not even met until a few weeks ago. It's just plain wrong.

    it's to benefit sarah palin's political career too. anti-abortion in all cases/family values stance has to be salvaged with a marriage asap to "negate" teenage pregnancy out of wedlock

    Absolutely shameless. It's amazing the lengths to which these people will go.

    Uneffing believable. It's bad enough to force these kids to marry, it's even worse to joke about it.

    This is the worst reason for two people to get married. It's going to end in divorce eventually. Is that a family value?

    Well, that divorce will happen when reality sets in again. After 4 years as being one of the most powerful families in politics id suspect. Then its back to living in alaska without people to cater to you.

    This is all with the pessimistic idea that dirty politics will yet again screw us over this election.

    Levi better be careful. We've seen how vindictive Sarah Palin was about her sister's divorce. One can only imagine the lengths she will go to if it comes to her own daughter. :eek:

    I'd be running to the Canadian border about right now. They can always use another hockey player. There's no way in hell I'd ever want to be related to Sarah Palin.

    Levi has a nice future ahead of him. After the divorce, he can leave Alaska and write a nice tell-all book.

    If I were him, I'd be writing a tell-all now. Now is when we need it. I'm sure he's got plenty of dirt already.

    yea, thats gonna happen. We'll also see the first documented case of murder by a VP candidate after she shoots him. It's ok tho, shell use all the parts and make stew or sumthing.....

    She'll use her taxidermy skills and make a trophy out of him. Like I said, I'd be crossing the border about right now...

    Speaking of taxidermy, there's a little taxidermy shop across the street from the gas station I frequent on my way to and from work. The other day I was filling up, and I smelled someon grilling. Sure enough, I look across the street, and there are two guys on the deck of the apartment above the taxidermy shop with a big grill all fired up.

    I had to wonder exactly what it was they were grilling.

    Sorry, random interjection. We now return you to your regularly scheduled programming.

    Well, at least he could start playing hockey right away and make himself of some use. :) ...and swimming to Russia this time of year would be a bit rough.

    If the wedding of a VP candidate's daughter would cause, “You would have every TV camera there. The entire country would be watching. It would shut down the race for a week.”, I am going to Canada. Sheesh. :rolleyes:

    Bill Maher has already made the best comment of all on this whole screwed-up thing.

    He refers to Levi as "America's Number 1 political prisoner", which if you think about it, is a damn straight way of looking at it. :D

    I can't quote much of Bill's diatribe on this subject, 'cause it's full of four-letter words, but you can read it at FreeLevi.org.

    What do you get a ****ing redneck and his child-bride for their shotgun wedding, anyway? Is there a traditional gift in this situation?
