Bristol Palin Wedding: Not Going to Happen

Oh, big surprise here. Not. Remember when right wingers applauded Bristol Palin and Levi Johnston for deciding to marry the father of her child? Well, now that the election's over, that pretense has been dropped:

WASILLA, Alaska (AP) -- Levi Johnston and Bristol Palin, the teenage daughter of Gov. Sarah Palin, have broken off their engagement, he said Wednesday, about 2 1/2 months after the couple had a baby.

Johnston, 19, told The Associated Press that he and 18-year-old Bristol Palin mutually decided "a while ago" to end their relationship. He declined to elaborate as he stood outside his family's home in Wasilla, about 40 miles north of Anchorage.
Of course, I don't know that they were insincere before the election. But the timing does coincide with Sarah Palin's political convenience.

UPDATE: By the way, I think Bristol Palin has actually handled herself much better than all the right-wingers trying to use her as their poster-child/cautionary tale, including her mom.
