Sarah Palin seems to have a double standard when it comes to teenagers who are pregnant and unmarried.

Sarah Palin, speaking as a mother:

"Bristol and the young man she will marry are going to realize very quickly the difficulties of raising a child, which is why they will have the love and support of our entire family," Palin said in a statement. "We ask the media to respect our daughter and Levi's privacy, as has always been the tradition of children of candidates."

Sarah Palin, acting as the governor:

The Washington Post revealed Tuesday that Alaska Governor and McCain vice presidential pick Sarah Palin, whose 17-year-old daughter Bristol is pregnant outside wedlock, earlier this year used a line-item veto to cut $1.1 million in funding which would have at least partially benefited teen moms in need.
