The royal wedding is off

Bristol Palin and Levi Johnston have broken off their engagement. I write this not for the gossip element (though it’s tempting), but rather to point out, yet again, how crassly political the Republicans are. Tell me this wasn’t a shotgun wedding to help McCain and Palin get elected? These are young people’s lives, and a baby, we’re dealing with. But none of that mattered to the McCain campaign. Making political fodder of marriage and babies is just another day at the office for Republicans.
