There are some days when Yr Wonkette is very glad that we do not allow comments. Because if we did, we might find ourselves with bucketloads of comments like these, from “Livefree601” on the topic of Bristol Palin, teen mom and Planned-Parenthood Dismantler:
She’s literally the most amazing and strongest woman out there. Who else could remain that strong in the face of haters and slanderers? AND she’s still the fully devoted mommy to the most blessed little boy
She’s literally the strongest person out there and the most loving mommy. Such a lucky little boy. Motherhood suits her. And at the end of the day, she’s not fake and doesn’t act like life is perfect.
And nine or ten more. Literally. They aren’t all like that, but it’s just hard to get past how sad it is that somebody out there has decided that their hero is Bristol Palin.
Most of Livefree601’s comments appear to be replies to other comments, so we can only guess at the context; apparently, they do NOT appreciate the idea that Bristol Palin, literally the most amazing strongest woman out there, went and got knocked up through unprotected sex. That is a dirty lie, says Livefree601, because you see, “she planned her pregnancy with her friends.” Livefree601 says this three times, which frankly is a new one for us — we knew that her then-boyfriend, wossname, Wrangler or whatever, claimed in his bad remaindered book that Bristol anger-humped him to get with child after she learned that her mom was preggers, but we’d never heard anything about her being in one of those ‘pregnancy pact” things — which were an urban legend anyway.
The real question, of course, is why would that make any difference? If Bristol Palin planned to get pregnant at 17, as part of a 4-H project with the Wasilla Meth Club, that somehow makes her a brave paragon of intentional teen pregnancy? And that makes her crusade to close women’s clinics a good thing? We do not understand the logic here.
A few more thoughts from Livefree601; no idea what they’re replying to, but you can pretty much guess at the context:
- Actually, her 1 pregnancy was planned, as her friends’ were. You may want to actually know what you’re talking about before you speak.
- Notice that her 1 pregnancy in her life was planned. So go home you ignoramus.
- Get a life. Notice THEY are all employed and living their solid lives, NOT attacking strangers as you are.
- Nice hateful comment. Why don’t you shut your mouth or get to know someone. BTW, Bristol’s a perfect example of the double standard in teen boys and teen girls. Bristol was FAR from being “easy,” yet because she was pregnant, people attacked her. Her ex was a pretty typical playboy who didn’t deny cheating, even admitted to it. Yet he’s cool, even when he failed to get a job until his son was 3. Bristol matured FAR faster and had a job long before.
Uhhh… what? Show of hands from anyone who thinks Levi Johnston is cool? Skeevy, we think the word is. Also, what is this “job” you say Bristol has? Oh, yes, she’s been on teevee because she was the pregnant daughter of a vice-presidential candidate. That’s the way to show some initiative.
Moving on to something altogether more pleasant, we’re going to turn our headline into a lie now with a comment that we actually went ahead and approved. Remember that happy hippie Obamacare ad from Oregon from the other day? Well, “emilypdx” jumped in with what we think is a pretty nifty detail that we non-Oregonians would not have gotten at all:
<pedant> They didn’t just come up with the flying thing because it’s trippy. It’s a play on the Oregon state motto: “She flies with her own wings.” </pedant>
OK, not only would out-of-state people not get that, we’d wager a craft-brewed beer that most Oregonians probably wouldn’t get it either. But it’s a pretty cool factoid. With a history of staying awake during state history class and knowing stuff like that, we bet “emilypdx” will fit in just fine as a member of the commentariat. Welcome, ya nerd.
