That's the latest unsubstantiated rumor, anyway, that the Palins will stage Bristol's forced nuptials right before the election. The real question, though, is if voters are soap-opera-addled enough to fall for it. I'd say that, well, it's up to Bristol, but I doubt she has any real "choice" in the matter. And the baby daddy? Hmm... there may have to be actual shotguns involved.
I'm guessing it's going to happen, as the McCain campaign has certainly sunk to some impressive depths. And this is, after all, the same family who sent their son to Iraq not to battle evildoers, but to shake his Oxycontin problem.
