With friends and family like these…

Bristol Palin just announced she’s pregnant with her second child.

A month after canceling her wedding, Bristol Palin has announced that she’s pregnant.

“I wanted you guys to be the first to know that I am pregnant,” shewrote in a blog post on the religious website Patheos. “Honestly, I’ve been trying my hardest to keep my chin up on this one.”

She continued, “I know this has been, and will be, a huge disappointment to my family, to my close friends, and to many of you. But please respect [my 6-year-old son] Tripp’s and my privacy during this time. I do not want any lectures and I do not want any sympathy.”

I am genuinely sorry that Bristol Palin lives in a world where getting pregnant out of wedlock — even if she considers it a mistake — would be viewed as a “huge disappointment” from her family and “close friends.” What kind of religious Web site is Pahteos that she has to preemptively inform its readers that she doesn’t “want any lectures”? And if she ever changes her mind about wanting sympathy, she has mine.

What would Jay-Z do?…

From USA Today:

Sarah Palin’s daughter Bristol, touring to promote her book “Not Afraid of Life,” tells “Christianity Today” that mom gets no respect from the media …

…because they’re envious of her. She’s got a good family, she’s got a good husband, she’s got awesome support, she’s got God on her side, and I think people are envious of that. They’re envious that she carries herself so well, that she’s smart. There are lots of vicious people out there.

Why does the title of Bristol Palin’s book have the swagger and defiance of a rap album that was “dropped” after the artist was released from prison?

Even her comments about her mother reek of the extreme paranoia and megalomaniacal disconnect from reality that is usually accompanied by clouds of pot smoke in the recording studio.

The media’s issue with Sarah Palin is envy and not just some responsibility to ask tough questions of public figures who choose to be public of their own volition? OK, envy it is. Let’s go with that.

Palin also has “God on her side” despite her being “too busy to go to church most Sundays.” I was under the impression that Palin was unemployed. One would think that the profession of being Sarah Palin would allow for Sundays off but there probably are not enough cameras at her local church to justify it.
