But They Were The Sweetest

There was no way Bristol Palin and Levi Johnston were going to get married or live happily ever after. Nor SHOULD they have been. But John McCain was in a Presidential race, dammit, and he was determined to make the happy couple look like the second coming of Charles and Di (who didn't stay together either, as I recall). So they set up this completely awkward meeting on the tarmac where McCain blessed the marriage and talked up the bride and groom. It was perhaps the strangest moment in a very strange campaign. Then there was talk that they'd hold the wedding before the election.

But alas...

Sarah Palin's 18-year-old daughter Bristol has reportedly broken off her engagement with Levi Johnston, the father of her 2-month-old son Tripp. It's surprising because in an interview just last month with FOX's Gretta Van Susteren, Bristol said the 19-year-old Levi is a hands-on dad and that they planned on marrying after finishing their education.

I wonder if part of the reason was all that stress from being put on television and in the limelight. But dammit, John McCain needed to win an election and he wasn't going to let some hockey player muck it up.

In a weird way, this was the most dishonorable thing McCain did...
