Oh, come on. Known abstinence advocate Bristol Palin could not have sounded more miserable – not to mention the whole “I know everyone’s disappointed in me” malarky – when she announced this past week that she’s pregnant with her second child out of wedlock. It’s clear that she did not want this kid at all, but now that everyone’s pointed out the extreme irony of her being a judgmental asshole about everyone else’s sex life when she’s not practicing what she preaches, she’s suddenly backpeddling and claiming that actually, she totally planned to have this baby all along, dummies!
Here’s her latest blog entry:
So here are the things you should all get straight before you continue to mock me, judge me, and talk about me.
None of us are perfect.
I made a mistake, but it’s not the mistake all these giddy a$$holes have loved to assume.
This pregnancy was actually planned.
Everyone knows I wanted more kids, to have a bigger family. Believing I was heading that way, I got ahead of myself. Things didn’t go as planned, but life keeps going. Life moves on.
But I do not regret this baby. This baby is not a disappointment, and I cannot wait to be a mom times two. Tripp is going to make the best big brother!!
When I realized I was pregnant, I knew I would be completely crucified. But I never even thought of aborting this child, NO MATTER WHAT THE CIRCUMSTANCE. (Sorry to the ghouls at Gawker, who said this baby is an argument FOR abortion. Not happening.)
I am pregnant. This is not the ideal situation, but life is important even if it’s not in the most absolute ideal circumstance. This is more confirmation on what I’ve always stood for. I’ve always been pro-life and I am standing for life now.
Deal with it.
What Bristol doesn’t realise is that a) no one’s buying her bullshit and that b) she can deny whatever she wants and make up whatever bullshit she wants, but the fact remains that it’s always the people who are the most vocal assholes who end up violating the very “rules” they purport we all should live by. I don’t know if Bristol originally became the poster child for abstinence-only sex education because she was forced into it by her mother so she could save face with the conservatives, but she needs to get a fucking grip and maybe pick up some pamphlets on birth control.
