This blog will focus on political images I have found all around the Internet, though I will intersperse some commentary and quotes that I find interesting.

In 2009, Sarah Palin’s daughter Bristol joined a teen pregnancy prevention nonprofit called the Candie’s Foundation. Today, the Associated Press reported that the Candie’s Foundation released its 2009 tax information, revealing that Bristol was paid a salary of $262,500.
But a closer examination of the tax form by ThinkProgress shows that the group disbursed only $35,000 in grants to actual teen pregnancy health and counseling clinics: [...] Thus, the nonprofit paid Bristol over seven times what it paid to teen pregnancy prevention groups.
Holy hell, Bristol Palin got a quarter million bucks in salary to talk about teen pregnancy?
I think the takeaway message here is that baby out of wedlock = BEST. DECISION. EVER.
