On his MySpace page, Bristol's baby daddy, Levi Johnston, 18, says, "I live to play hockey. I like to go camping and hang out with the boys, do some fishing." On the site, he claims to be "in a relationship" but states, "I don't want kids." (Too late now.) The Daily News reports that Levi, a high school senior and hockey player, is a self-described "f---in' redneck" and that Bristol's pregnancy was an open secret back home in Alaska. The two have been reportedly dating over a year.
How will all this affect the campaign? Republican mom Laurie says, "This won't change my vote. Sarah Palin is pro-life and her daughter's decision to have the baby supports that position. Things happen in families, and you just deal with them the best way you know how. She'll be in my prayers." But Democrat mom Michelle says, "Sarah Palin is a firm supporter of abstinence-only education in schools. Obviously that didn't work with her own daughter!"
Surprisingly, even Lindsay Lohan is blogging about the subject. "I think the real problem comes from the fact that we are taking the focus off of getting to know Sarah Palin and her political views, and what she can do to make our country a less destructive place," she writes. "I think that parents need to recognize how important it is to talk to their children about the things that can result from being sexually active if they aren't protecting themselves (birth control, condoms, etc.)."
