This Palin story just gets a little more interesting everyday, does it not?
It'll be interesting to see what makes the history books when it comes to the election of 2008. One thing is for certain is that our children will at least have a couple multiple choice questions on their American history finals that relates to this interesting election.
Piper mentioned last year that the film Juno would do to Teen Pregnancy what Pretty Woman did to prostitution. And after watching Juno last year I pondered myself, what effects Ellen Page's remarkable acting job would do to the world of teen pregnancy...could something traditionally viewed negatively be glamorized with limited emotion?
It'll certainly be interesting to see how suddenly Sarah Palin (a woman who I knew nothing about a week ago) suddenly fills the breaking news world as her daughter is pregnant out of wedlock (but with future wedlock plans).
Hopefully the media and blogosophere will respect Bristol and the rest of the Palin family on this matter...but who are we kidding? When has politicians (or the blogosphere) played nice?
Also, who is this Paulie Bleeker? Could we have another celebrity rise up this week? And if Palin goes to Washington is Paulie Bleeker going too?
Even though Ellen Page's Juno insist that her name IS NOT like the city in Alaska, maybe in this sequel it really is Juneau, Alaska.
All kidding aside, it'll be interesting to see not only how this family "reality show" plays out on the public stage, but it'll be interesting (although as previously mentioned, unfortunate in some cases) to see how public attitudes (liberal and conservative) respond to this issue, as a true barometer of our times.
(sidenote: if they do make a Sarah Palin movie, I think Allison Janney would be an excellent actress for the role)
