I am only human and I am not in charge of karma. So when the vehemently abstinence-only, creationism-friendly, rookie-plus-six months Republican governor of a small state who stunningly has just been picked as the VP candiate reveals that her 17-year-old daughter is oopsie pregnant, please don’t tell me that I have to be mature about this. Let me take a few moments to, ah, reflect upon the situation… and to shudder when evil witch Phyllis Schlafly cackles about the young couple "liv[ing] happily ever after”… and to wonder what it must be like to be a pregnant 17-year-old and know that Bill Bennett, Bill O’Reilly, John McCain, and a lot of other skeevy old guys on national TeeVee are thinking and talking about your sex life.
