Some Choice Quotes:

"Never let it be said that the conservative right is as obsessed with women's sexuality as the Muslim fundamentalists, from whom they claim to be defending the rest of the world. Any reader who can explain to this column the difference between Bristol Palin advocating abstinence from the cover of People magazine and Abu Hamza railing against western sluttishness to a hastily assembled press conference in north London will win a Jonas Brothers chastity ring."

""If girls realised the consequences of having sex, nobody would be having sex. Trust me. Nobody," she tells People magazine this week. Well, probably not with some dumb Alaskan hick who recently appeared on the Tyra Banks Show in the US to brag about boning most of his sister's friends. Good point, Bristol!"

"Todd Palin and his unsmiling daughter Bristol, holding her baby, Tripp, whom Todd pointed at and called - in loving, grandfatherly tones, of course - "a mistake". You know how the Christian right's argument against abortion is that "every child is a gift"? It turns out that "mistake" is Alaskan for "gift"."

"She rocked up on the Colbert Report this week to announce that she was "pro-sex". "How do Republicans normally reproduce - a firm handshake before bed?" asked an understandably bemused Colbert. A giggle of an answer said pretty much all anyone needed to know about just how immaculate Meghan's conception was."
