Bristol Palin: abstinence isn't realistic; Bible Spice admits her past view is 'naive'

You’d think that this wouldn’t go over well Bible Spice, who in her gubernatorial campaign supported  abstinence education. How long before young mom Bristol Palin is told to go into her room and close the door by the womb control wing of the GOP? She was was interviewed by Greta van Susteren and said this…  (via Think Progress):

   VAN SUSTEREN: I don’t want to pry to personally, but I mean, actually, contraception is an issue here. Is that something that you were just lazy about or not interested, or do you have a philosophical or religious opposition to it or…

   BRISTOL: No. I don’t want to get into detail about that. But I think abstinence is, like – like, the – I don’t know how to put it – like, the main – everyone should be abstinent or whatever, but it’s not realistic at all.

When Van Susteren asked Gov. Palin, who joined the interview, about abstinence, she seemed similarly dismissive of her former views on abstinence, admitting, “It sounds naive.” Bristol added, “I just – I hope that people learn from my story and just, like, I don’t know, prevent teen pregnancy, I guess.”

Interestingly, over in the Freeper swamps, there are quite a few of them who have engaged in some reality-based thinking.

You know, just imagine if Barack Obama’s family were dealing with this out-of-wedlock matter if one of their daughters was Bristol’s age and she went on TV and spoke about abstinence ed unrealistic. Do you think you’d see any approval by the right wing?
