17-year-old Bristol to keep the child and marry the father
ST. PAUL - The 17-year-old daughter of Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin is pregnant, Palin said Monday in an announcement intended to knock down rumors by liberal bloggers that Palin faked her own pregnancy to cover up for her child.
Bristol Palin, one of Alaska Gov. Palin's five children with her husband, Todd, is about five months pregnant and is going to keep the child and marry the father, the Palins said in a statement released by the campaign of Republican presidential candidate John McCain.

Well, that shuts down that nasty DailyKos attack smear - but it also shows that it wasn't 100% false... just wrong and nasty, and kinda true in "a your mom wears Army boots sort of way."
And there's a hurricane somewhere. I don't know - it's the first I've heard of it too.
