|Former half-term governor of Alaska, Sarah Palin|
I was wondering why CBS Sunday Morning was doing a story on the former half-term governor of Alaska.
Then you get to the end of the segment and they mention her new (ghost-written) book. That explains that...
Palin gives us her usual serving of word-salad, mangling and misusing language right and left. Bless her heart.
And she shares that although her daughter Bristol is pregnant for the second time as an unwed mother (after campaigning for abstinence), Palin feels the great thing is God keeps giving Bristol second, third, fourth and fifth times to not get pregnant.
“Bristol is pregnant again,” CBS correspondent Tracy Smith pointed out to Palin during a recent trip to Wasilla. “That can’t be how you saw this playing out, unmarried and pregnant again.”
“Heck, no!” the former Alaska governor insisted. “Because being a single mom is — oh, my goodness. My heart goes out to the single parents. But my enormous admiration for what they’re able to accomplish doing double duty. And I watch Bristol do double duty all the time with her little boy, Tripp.”
“I can’t wait for about 45 more days and I’m going to have a little baby granddaughter,” Palin beamed. “And I’m happy about it.”
“Of course, there are those who say, ‘Come on, this goes against everything you stand for,'” Smith observed.
“Well, the cool thing about putting your faith in God,” Palin replied in a folksy voice, “is he certainly is a God of second chances and third and fourth and fifth chances.”
The "Wonder from Wasilla" also says she's not sure if she and Sen. John McCain lost in 2008, or just came in second in a race of two teams.
