Here’s the rules: If you’re a teenage chastity advocate the one thing you really can’t do is get pregnant. If you’re a member of P.E.T.A. the one thing you really can’t do is kick your dog.

I, for one, am praying Bristol will dish some dirt on her baby daddy ex, Levi Johnston, but unfortunately the Palins seem to be too classy for that. More realistically, she’ll just tell us alllll about how every pregnant teen girl should totally have a baby because it’s so easy to get nationally televised TV gigs and book deals. Gooooooo abstinence?! [NY Times] Keep reading »
