Inside John McCain’s campaign the expectation is growing that there will be a popularity boosting pre-election wedding in Alaska between Bristol Palin, 17, and Levi Johnston, 18, her schoolmate and father of her baby. “It would be fantastic,” said a McCain insider. “You would have every TV camera there. The entire country would be watching. It would shut down the race for a week.”
The ice-hockey player wrote on his MySpace page he was a “f****** redneck” and stated, “I don’t want kids.” But a McCain insider predicted he would marry Bristol whenever his future mother-in-law wanted. “It’s a shotgun wedding. She kills things,” the source joked.
Apart from marrying her when he may not have, the guy is probably actually getting a lot out of this. He’s riding the whole campaign extravaganza, he’s getting to meet all these important people, and might (God help us) be the son-in-law to the Vice President of the US. Dude could probably get any chick in Alaska.
You know, it’d be a nice day to start again. Come on! Right now we’ve got an old man and a female lunatic in the runnings for the Presidency praying that a shotgun wedding will boost their polling high enough to jump into the Oval Office. If that works, there’s nothing fair, safe, sure, or pure left in this world!
I dunno. From what little of his personality that’s been exposed by his MySpace writings and such, it doesn’t sound like he’s interested in that kind of thing (besides the getting any chick part). Love to see Couric interview him.
Regardless of McCain/Palin victory, I’d be willing to bet they’d still get divorced within the term, probably within the first 2 years so that everyone forgets about (or gets called a lunatic for bringing it up) when election time rolls around again.
