Are is the republican channel sniffing Bristol Palin's panties? Because that is what republicans do! But seriously what does she add to the public discourse? From Think Progress we get this exchange.

VAN SUSTEREN: I don’t want to pry to personally, but I mean, actually, contraception is an issue here. Is that something that you were just lazy about or not interested, or do you have a philosophical or religious opposition to it or…

BRISTOL: No. I don’t want to get into detail about that. But I think abstinence is, like — like, the — I don’t know how to put it — like, the main — everyone should be abstinent or whatever, but it’s not realistic at all.

Also, this brilliant proclamation from young Miss Palin. “It sounds naive.” Bristol added, “I just — I hope that people learn from my story and just, like, I don’t know, prevent teen pregnancy, I guess.”

If the republicans or her mother are going to trot out an unwed teenage mother, they should at least teach her to speak well in public. If Bristol were under 18, this would constitute child abuse. What exactly is this supposed to accomplish?

It is morally wrong to ask that question on TV. Think Progress has the video.
