Bristol and Levi Sittin' In a Tree...

Normally I feel that children of politicians should not be public fodder, but Bristol Palin and Levi Johnston were certainly in the public eye when Bristol's mother Sarah was running for Vice President.  After their breakup and the many interesting things Levi had to say about his once future-mother-in-law, the news that Bristol and Levi are engaged again is hilarious, as is the statement the Palins made to the press:

For their part, the Palins have released a statement to NBC News, though one that makes it hard to say how on board they really are. “Bristol at 19 is now a young adult,” the Palins said. “We obviously want what’s best for our children. Bristol believes in redemption and forgiveness to a degree most of us struggle to put in practice in our daily lives.”

In other words, Levi really ticked us off, but we are such wonderful people we let Bristol decide who she wants to marry even if he's the spawn of the Devil.

Well, Sarah pointedly didn't say that she forgave Levi.

But she went on to publicly acknowledge that her daughter, as an adult, has the right to make her own decisions about marrying (or not) the father of her baby. I'd say that shows more class than Sarah Palin is usually given credit for.
