dude it is so totally her granddaughter

Since it's a boy, that would be diff :)

well stated, and I don't think the current photographic evidence necessarily proves this one way or the other -- but I agree, the statement that belly fat grows "wide and not out" is just not true.

I agree. Regardless of what we think about Sarah Palin, we need to be careful about the messages being said about Bristol Palin. Especially if the rumor is wrong, because then, she's just a normal kid. Personally, I do see a minor bit of weight difference between the two pictures I saw, but hey, maybe she put on a little weight, maybe she was bloated from her period, neither of which are something a teenage girl (or any woman) should be mocked for. Whichever Palin was seven months pregnant, neither one was showing.

I was really angry when the press raked Chelsea Clinton over the coals. She was 12! Show me anyone's pictures when they are that age, and I will show you someone who looks a bit gawky. Kids' bodies from about 11-14 are in a constant state of flux. They generally behave awkwardly and self-consciously because their bodies are changing so quickly that they are clumsy and don't have time to get comfortable in their own skin. Even kids that age who are "attractive" by the media's standards generally slouch, shuffle & mumble at that age--they are uncomfortable with themselves and are trying to hide.

Yeesh! Puberty is a difficult enough experience without having to do in on the nightly news.

I completely agree about leaving Bristol alone. One of the reasons I despise McCain is the horrible joke he told at a press dinner making fun of Chelsea Clinton's appearance back when she was 13-ish. (Google Chelsea Clinton Janet Reno McCain joke if anyone hasn't heard of it.) If there is something to all of this, I think that it could be relevant because her pregnancy has been cited as a reason for her political desirability. However, speculation about very vague pictures helps no one, and just puts a young girl, who has NOT opted into media scrutiny, in an uncomfortable position.

She's being exposed to so much garbage, and it will only get worse as the months go by.

I do have to admit my prejudice against her name, though, especially the sound of "Bristol" in combination with "Palin". It makes me think of the name of a white-bread subdivision, the sort of place that's mostly condos, where half the lots are empty, all the trees have been cut down, and the landscaping hasn't been finished.

Suppressing that stupid thought, though, I wonder how long it will be before Bristol is allowed to have a normal life, if ever. Chelsea has made a good life for herself. People who saw her campaigning for her mother this year said that she was an excellent asset--calm, controlled, and a really good speaker. She says that she has no desire to go into politics, though a lot of people have urged her to do so.
