(Newser) – Bristol Palin thinks the best advertisement for abstinence is “a screaming newborn baby,” she tells People in a look at the life of a teenage mom. “If girls realized the consequences of sex, nobody would be having sex,” says Bristol, who graduated high school last week, but worked two part-time jobs, wrote papers with said screaming baby in the room, and skipped prom to do it. “Trust me. Nobody.” Is she sad about missing out? “I have other things to worry about,” she says.

“I’m thankful we didn't get married,” she adds of baby daddy Levi Johnston. “Because if it wasn’t going to work now, it wasn’t going to work in five years.”

Disgust and disdain for Palin should never be misinterpreted as fear. We didn't fear her as we crushed her in the election last November and we won't fear her in 2012 if she is misguided enough to attempt it again. I'm not sure what your motives are for name calling but it amuses me. Feel free to keep it up if it makes you feel better. I suppose if I had any opinion of you at all, it might border on something unkind. As such, other than commenting on your posts, you are as worthless as your party has become and don't occupy my thoughts or feelings.
