Remember back to the good ol' days of 1981 when 15 year old Brooke Shields said that "nothing" came between her and her Calvin Kleins? If not, just click on the above video from brookenook.com, featured on YouTube.
If Levi Strauss & Company wanted to make a splash today, they should feature an ad by teenager Bristol Palin, saying "you know what comes between me and my Levi...."
They won't of course, but it would be appropriate.
In an upcoming appearance on "The Tyra Banks Show" former fiancee, and father of Bristol Palin's child, Levi Johnston, admits that Sarah Palin allowed he and Bristol to share a bedroom in her house, so he figured she knew the couple was having sex.
Hmmm, let's see, a woman whose prime claim to political celebrity is her alleged super-morality, including advocating abstinence as the sole form of birth control, allows her pregnant, unmarried daughter to share a bedroom under her roof with the man who got her pregnant? What's wrong with this picture?
What sets this story apart from just obtrusive tabloid journalism is that Sarah Palin continues to send signals that she is considering a run for the presidency in 2012.
What, thus far, is Palin's qualification for the job? Certainly not her command of domestic and foreign policy.
No, Governor Palin has been propped up by the self-righteous right, as a paragon of virtue and motherhood. Her supporters have asked us to elevate her because her values (not to mention, marksmanship) are allegedly so spot-on, that she would be a pillar of morality in our decadent society.
As the L.A. Times reports:
Levi, who was sharing a room with Bristol at the Palin residence before their breakup, tells Tyra he believes Sarah Palin knew they were having sex and says they practiced safe sex “most of the time.”
Based upon remarks from the baby's father, it certainly appears that Sarah didn't come between Bristol and her Levi.
I hope the Governor does decide to make a run in 2012. If she does, I say break out the popcorn and let's have a field day.
Seriously, I can't wait to see what moral issues Palin chooses to lecture about next.
