A Trophy Role Model, One Might Say

Comment on a post about Bristol's pregnancy on a conservative blog:

Let's have a wedding and get this young man into the family photograph. Why wait for the Rose Garden? Glad to see that he will grow up, man up, and step up.

P.S. May I recommend that he look to Fred Thompson as a good role model?

For reference.

[UPDATE] : Either I am reading all the wrong sites and listening to all the wrong people, but it seems to be commonly accepted that Bristol's pregnancy makes the Palins more real, because, apparently, teen pregnancy is something that happens to "every family." As best I can tell, only 4.4% of American teens become pregnant. So, how does Bristol's pregancy make the Palins more "normal?" And WHY THE FUCK ARE WE STILL ACTING LIKE HAVING A PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE THAT IS A "REGULAR JOE" IS A GOOD THING???????? For fuck sake, will there again be a time in this country when brains, ideas, and (heaven for fucking bid) communicaton skills are positives? Can someone please focus their attention on Sarah Palin and whether or not anything mildly intelligent comes out of her mouth? Because so far I have yet to hear it.
