ST. PAUL (Reuters) – The 17-year-old unmarried daughter of Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin is pregnant, Palin said on Monday in an announcement intended to knock down rumors by liberal bloggers that Palin faked her own pregnancy to cover up for her child.
Bristol Palin, one of Alaska Gov. Palin’s five children with her husband Todd, is about five months pregnant and is going to keep the child and marry the father, according to aides of Republican presidential candidate John McCain.
Bristol Palin made the decision on her own to keep the baby, the aides said.
Hm, I told you this would be an interesting debate. More on the article here.
Additionally, holy shit! I hope everything goes okay. (For those of you who want to know what the link is, it’s talking about New Orleans’ levees withstanding Hurricane Gustav.
Aw, hell. Let me quote this shit.
NEW ORLEANS, Sept 1 (Reuters) – Hurricane Gustav slammed ashore on the U.S. Gulf Coast just west of New Orleans on Monday, hammering the city devastated by Katrina in 2005 with surging floodwaters that threatened its rebuilt levees.
The storm was weaker than had been feared. But waves splashed over floodwalls containing the New Orleans Industrial Canal, triggering a tense watch over the barrier system that failed three years ago, flooding 80 percent of the city and stranding thousands of people.
Six inches (15 cm) of water pooled in some streets near the canal, and troops prepared to evacuate residents. But the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers said the levees had not been breached and city pumps were able to keep up with the flooding.
Last night I went and saw Ratatat. It was a nice show, simply put, because Peter, Emily, Alex and I sat above the balcony at the Granada, and were old people. I didn’t get “moshed” or whatever, and I got to see the band (which is quite a feat for 5’2″ me). It was really fun.
Here is their song, “Mirando” for which the video loops and interplays scenes of, Predator, the movie.
They also played, “Seventeen Years” in the encore and “Wildcat”, but not “El Pico” which is one of my personal favorites. Anyway, here is a live video of “Seventeen Years.” I really enjoyed the show.
