Celebrating Mixed Messages.

So….. Abstinence didn’t work for Bristol Palin.

And…..she doesn’t think it works for anyone else.

But….she’s now a teen spokesperson for an abstinence organization.

And…Candie’s, the organization who runs this abstinence foundation, has ads like this.

    porn to politics. not a new concept. they’ve done it in Italy for a few decades.

    Louisiana apparently is doing it, too, so why not soft stuff like Candies Foundation?

  3. trisha says:

    Some have said that this ad is for Candie’s perfume and NOT the foundation.

    Well, here is the link to the Candie’s foundation for abstinence.
    http://www.candiesfoundation.org/tshirts.html

    Their slogan:
    I AM SEXY ENOUGH TO KEEP YOU WAITING (worn on a tight tank-T by young girl). WTF!!!!! Are they kidding?

    What kind of message is that for teenager girls? How about teaching them that they are more than sex objects or that there is more than being sexy. Would the religious right have their teenage daughters wearing this t-shirt? What’s the message—that teens should be sexy, but just be a tease?

    Why isn’t Bristol wearing the t-shirt that has the slogan for the campaign she is promoting?

  4. trisha says:

    Palin’s “family values”….. Has Sarah ever seen these ads from Candie’s? Was she even aware that they are known for sexually charged ads that are targeted to teens? Does she know that is why they created this foundation—because they were getting flack about their ads marketing to teens?

    Does Palin’s religious right base know that this is the kind of Company that Bristol is representing?

    What is she thinking? Then again, we know she doesn’t think.

  5. Priceless says:

    What really torches me is that as a card carrying member of the GOP, I can’t get better quality reps? Pluezzes. Bristol is NOT role model for my teen daughters. Palin’s family is NOT LIKE mine. Palin had an affair. McCain had an affair. Craig gets caught playing footisie ball in the mens room. WHY CAN’T WE WALK THE WALK WE TALK? Is that asking too much? If you preach morality, live it. Don’t expect others to not be watching you pretty darn closely.

  6. leenie17 says:

    I am amazed that the Palin family believes that anyone will take Bristol’s effort to promote abstinence seriously, particularly after her own comments during the GVS interview (youtube is forever, Sarah!). While admirable on the surface (and I DO want to give Bristol the benefit of the doubt but it’s really, really hard when anyone named Palin is involved!), the connection with Candies with their semi-pornographic ads is quite a stunning contradiction.

    More importantly, since Bristol apparently didn’t learn any lessons from her own mother’s experience (the *wedding—>Track’s arrival* timeline, anyone???), why should teenagers who don’t even know the family be swayed by Bristol’s story? Since abstinence has seemingly failed TWO generations of the Palins, perhaps they should consider more ‘realistic’ options.

  7. blue moose says:

    This kids is controlled and exploited by her horrible parents and that is so SAD! No independent thinking allowed in that free house!

  8. Wurzelhexli says:

    Has anyone asked themseves why Tripp was so COMPLETELY out? I mean, he did not even twitch his nose when Bristols hair was in his face! He also did not wince or stir when she shifted him… Curious, how the Palin babies always seem to be such completely solid sleepers (remember Trig on the campaign trail? He was also completely out during the tumultuous rallies and the convention…)
    Thoughts of ‘drugging’ come to my mind… Maybe something that Child Protective Services should look into!

  9. Candies Foundation is not an abstinence foundation, just saying.

  10. ez.pz. says:

    Watched the interview… made me wonder about how Todd got the reputation as being some sort of Machiavellian, Svengali-type of operator, constantly behind the scenes, directing and manipulating.

    On the basis of that performance, he comes across as being slightly less threatening than a gaily-decorated picnic-basket.

  12. Actongue says:

    It also means that if Palin and the Far right are for something then almost everything they want for the United States is the wrong way to go when it comes to Morality since they can not practice what they Preach.

    I am for Nuclear power though but that is another topic:}

  13. curiouser says:

    Actongue….Uh oh. Suppose the failure of the right to reduce teen pregnancies is purposeful…fits in with that ‘multiply and inherit the earth’ command.

    Interesting information on Red States and Teen pregancy

    http://www.getlisty.com/fox11az/highest-teen-pregnancy-rates/

    Mississippi: 68.4%
    2. New Mexico: 64.1
    3. Texas: 63.1
    4. Arkansas: 62.3
    5. Arizona: 62.0
    6. Oklahoma: 59.6
    7. Nevada: 55.8
    8. Tennessee: 54.7
    9. Kentucky: 54.6
    10. Georgia: 54.2

    Interesting on how many of them are RED STATES

    Lowest

    The lowest teen birth rates continue to be in New England, where three states have teen birth rates at just half the national average.

    Conclusion

    the Far right Fails at what they Preach.

  17. UK Lady says:

    Palin Sucks

    OT but have you seen comment 81 on the Palin helps rebrand the GOP thrad?

  18. PalinSucks says:

    I don’t think, Bristol, meant, “Here’, as in, New York, for college.

    Bristol dropped out of high school to give birth to Tripp, but continued to take classes online. She will graduate with her high school class later this month, and told Lauer she wants to begin taking college classes soon and complete her education.

    ******************************************
    Hey – one of the panelist is a pro baseball jock. Bristol likes jocks. She should say “I’m going out. Watch your grandchild.” Batter – Up !!

  20. zyggy says:

    Tripp’s name should be Abstinence Mistake. I thought it extremely rude of first dud to call his grandchild a mistake. Bristol should have backed up her opinion that abstinence isn’t realistic, since there is evidence of that with her “mistake” on her lap. Too bad Palin’s hand puppet continues to voice abstinence, since we can see that doesn’t work.

    If it worked, little Tripp wouldn’t be there.

    750,000 little mistakes running around due to practicing abstinence.

    I think we all realize that teenagers should wait before having children, but egad, the Palin’s are not the best role models for abstinence or birth control. Like mother, like daughter. I wonder when Willow will announce to her parents that she too has a little “mistake” growing. I’m guessing she too will be a momma by age 18.

  21. Pat says:

    We are ONE SICK SOCIETY! These ads are a parody/charicature of the early 20 th century ads, The Golden Age of Illustration, painted ( not photographed, providing an income for a talented handful of artists, Cole Phillips, J C Leyendecker, Norman Rockewell.)
    But the products they were selling were “less work for Mother”, Ford Cars, (& other models) food & kitchen apliances………………everything to IMPROVE THE LIVES OF the American Populace, and support “family values” as well as increase the GDP. It’s time to take the Corporate Monster down to ground level!
    Totally corrupt and VERY SAD!

    austintx, have you ever seen the film, In Bruges?
    ************************************
    Have not. Should I ck. it out ??

    Also , did it seem BP seemed a little more at ease without sarah right up on her a la the Greta “interview” ??

  23. Terpsichore says:

    “In the NBC interview, teen ambassador Bristol said she would be starting college ‘here’ in the fall. Does that mean she’ll be going to school in New York?”

    Yea curiouser, I thought I heard “here” too, also. And had the same question. Be cool if it were true!

    I thought Bristol held her own a little better than she did in the Greta interview. Interesting that she did the Cuomo interview alone, but had Dad there for Lauer’s interview.

  24. PalinSucks says:

    “A thought: maybe SP is not with Bristol because Bristol told her to stay back! I have a feeling their relationship has been frosty for some time”

    Nah, Bristol, isn’t that strong. Palin, showing up on the show, at least on camera, would be blatant, pimping. She is trying to, Rebrand herself.

    Palin, is or will be back, East, today or tomorrow.

    Todd, was there to shut down, Matt, from asking real, questions.

  25. Connie says:

    Wow, yeah. Poor, poor Trigg, er ahhh I mean Tripp being paraded across the country being called a mistake. Poor guy is not even a year old and has already been thrown under the Palin bus.

    Was Bristol paid for this interview?

    Nice smutty advertisements Candies! We can only assume Bristol, Mom and Dad approve the smut!

  26. curiouser says:

    In the NBC interview, teen ambassador Bristol said she would be starting college ‘here’ in the fall. Does that mean she’ll be going to school in New York?

  27. let it run says:

    A thought: maybe SP is not with Bristol because Bristol told her to stay back! I have a feeling their relationship has been frosty for some time ( not unusual for teenager girls and moms) but that may be the reason Todd is in NYC with Bristol’s and not her mom or the fact that since Mom is not with her she can actually get a word in edgewise.

  28. let it run says:

  31. Bystander says:

    Sarah and Bristol Palin- the best mother daughter grifter team since Sigourney Weaver and Jennifer Love Hewitt in “Heartbreakers”.

  32. PalinSucks says:

    Among the choice communiques culled is this May 2007 conversation between Bristol and “Johnny,” on her MYSPACE whom the blog identifies as the boy Bristol dated before Levi Johnston.

    May 14, 2007 7:49 PM
    haha, my mom was asking who i was on the phone with last night, and said she heard everything i was saying…now she thinks i am pregnant.ahaha call me later if you like

    That would be a full year before Bristol actually became pregnant, rendering Palin’s later claims that she was surprised at Bristol’s pregnancy somewhat disingenuous.

    Also, if the MySpace posts pulled here are to be believed, Bristol was a pothead—or at least her brother Track narced on her to their mom that she was.

  33. PalinSucks says:

    Bristol, couldn’t HOLD OUT, 3 minutes with the GMA, interview and says abstinence is not the only education teens should get.

  34. greatgrammy1 says:

    So, Candie’s has Sarah, the unmarried pregnant mother of Bristol the unmarried pregnant mother of Tripp preaching abstinence before marriage. What is wrong with this picture? At least Sarah had the decency to marry the father of her unborn child.

  35. PalinSucks says:

    LMAO, Bristol is the ambassador, on Good Morning America, she is a statistic.

    3 out of 10 teens will get pregnant. CHECK
    Less then half will finish high school. CHECK
    8 out of 10 teens do not marry the baby’s daddy. CHECK

    http://abcnews.go.com/GMA/story?id=7510385&page=1

  36. PalinSucks says:

    Got face time over at GMA.

    http://abcnews.go.c“Regardless of what I did personally, I just think that abstinence is the only … 100 percent foolproof way to prevent pregnancy,” she told “Good Morning America” today, backing away from a previous statement on Fox News that abstinence wasn’t realistic, saying it was taken out of context.

    om/gma

  37. PalinSucks says:

    The Chicago Tribune’s political blog and others are reporting as fact that the governor is going to be Fox News’ guest at the White House Correspondents Dinner in Washington, D.C., on Saturday.

    http://www.adn.com/palin/story/784888.html

  38. PalinSucks says:

    Wonder, how close by, Palin was and how pissed she was she did not get camera time.

    The big mistake was putting that girl out in the public like she is. Bristol, has absolutely nothing to say worth listening to by young girls. She is going to get caught in so many lies. She has that pissy attitude & grudge gene of her mothers, which won’t play well, after, a couple more, interviews.

  39. PalinSucks says:

    “I could not watch her on Good Morning America without saying “liar liar” take after your mother. ”

    Yup!!! You heard the baby he say, the baby is exhausted? You saw she is not. I do not see, Bristol, being the one up all night with the little guy. He is nothing more then that accessory on a hip she was talking about. Wonder how long they took to drill those talking points in her heard.

    She will be an absentee mother just like her mother. BTW, which college in Alaska, has new enrollment starting in a few days?

    As we saw, Bristol, is not quick enough to cover her tracks. She will get reamed in the media.

    ALSO, the hatred she has for, Levi, is THICK. Tripp, is a pawn, in her immature emotions against the father. She better learn a better poker face or stay home away from interviews.

  40. EyeOnYou says:

    I wonder what Tripp will think about Grandpa Todd calling him a “mistake”?

  41. Bonnie says:

    I could not watch her on Good Morning America without saying “liar liar” take after your mother. My teeth grind at her the poster child for abstinence. The ad featured above couldn’t be more sexual!

  42. PalinSucks says:

    Oh, now I see, after, watching the video, Todd, is their to shut, Matt…UP, fom asking REAL questions. So he is IN on pimping his kids out just like his wife. He has got to go as well.

  43. PalinSucks says:

    Wow, even pulled, Todd, on the road AND baby. Some major, PR for, Palin.

    Lauer said that may be unrealistic. “Is there room for safe sex?” he asked Bristol.

    “If you’re going to have sex, I think you should have safe sex,” she said before going back to her message that only abstinence works.

  44. EyeOnYou says:

    I would love to know exactly how her comments on abstinence being unrealistic were taken out of context.

    VAN SUSTEREN: Levi here?

    BRISTOL: No, he’s not. He’s working.

    VAN SUSTEREN: What’s he doing now?

    BRISTOL: He’s helping his dad out and finishing up his schooling.

    VAN SUSTEREN: Does he have any sort of — does he feel the same way you feel about teen pregnancy and have some sort of — Well, maybe a good idea to wait usually, unless things happen?

    BRISTOL: Yes. He feels the same way I do. We both just — kids should just wait. It’s — I don’t know. It’s not glamorous at all.

    VAN SUSTEREN: I don’t want to pry to personally, but I mean, actually, contraception is an issue here. Is that something that you were just lazy about or not interested, or do you have a philosophical or religious opposition to it or…

    BRISTOL: No. I don’t want to get into detail about that. But I think abstinence is, like — like, the — I don’t know how to put it — like, the main — everyone should be abstinent or whatever, but it’s not realistic at all.

    VAN SUSTEREN: Why?

    BRISTOL: Because — I don’t want to get into details on this.

    VAN SUSTEREN: Well, no, I don’t mean personally, just big picture, not — not necessarily about you, but…

    BRISTOL: Because it’s more and more accepted now.

    VAN SUSTEREN: Among your classmates and kids your age?

    BRISTOL: Among — yes, among kids my age.

    VAN SUSTEREN: How do you change that?

    BRISTOL: To see stories like this and to see other stories of teen moms and just — it’s something that’s — I don’t know, just — you should just wait 10 years and it’d just be so much easier.

  45. trisha says:

    Sounds like Bristol had her microchip updated so she would repeat the “correct” message that Sarah needs her to say to advance her political career.

    The winner of the worst mother of the century goes to………………
    Sarah Palin, for using her kids for her own personal gain.

  46. trisha says:

    So, is Bristol saying that Greta’s interview was part of the “gotcha” media when they took her quote out of context?

    Hmmm. I thought Greta was Sarah’s newest BFF.

  47. lynnrockets says:

    Komrades:
    This is Kommandante George Soros with explicit instructions from the Movement. It is mandatory that all members of the Party (oops, I meant, group) monitor Palin TV interviews this morning and report back here with all funny snippets. Viewer discretion is advised.

    Over and Out

    over.

    nervous…….right leg moving……..seems more at ease than with Greta……..Levi is part of baby’s life…….huh ??

  50. Lilybart says:

    Someone should ask Bristol……”Since you are not married, are you abstinent NOW?”

    It only gets more surreal!

    I can’t find it now, but there was a link to the Candi’s ad with Bristol & Levi’s picture on it. I have a couple of questions about that picture:

    1. Is Levi getting paid for his image to be part of that ad campaign?

    2. The picture is obviously from the campaign, is it property of the Palin’s or of the Republicans? (i.e. copyright question)

    3. Did anyone even ask Levi for permission to use his image in that ad?

    I’m not sure there is really much one could do to improve on the original ;)

  59. EyeOnYou says:

    It would have been nice if someone pointed out how different Bristol’s life was from the normal teen who gets pregnant.

    She has support from everyone around her. She has gotten gifts from around the world for her child. She has a home to live in, with no worries about paying bills, feeding herself or her child. She has free childcare, can go to school without worry about her child. The father of her child is willing to be an active part of the child’s life. She lives the ideal life of a person who suddenly finds herself in the role of unexpected teen mother. No worries about anything, except which television interview to do, and which money making offer to accept or reject.

  60. EyeOnYou says:

    Pre-Story:
    Mentioning about how Bristol has been nominated as Teen Ambassador for Candies.
    Pointing out the comment on Greta about abstinence being unrealistic.
    Levi begins “national media blitz”.

    Matt is smiling and polite.
    Asking if the pregnancy is a mistake. She answers no, but wishes she would have waited.
    She explains how tough being a mom is.
    Asked if she realized how tough it was going to be doing the “do as I say not as I do” role. She answers yes.
    Todd is speaking about how proud of her they are.
    No time for friends, life changes.

    Asked if there is room in the conversation for contraceptives, as in …abstinence is the best option…however…if you are going to engage in sex, contraceptives are the way to go.
    Hahahahaha, Todd won’t speak about contraceptives. He called the pregnancy a “mistake” that happened a year ago, and says that abstinence is the only way to prevent pregnancy 100%. Bristol does say that if you are going to have sex, have safe sex, but abstinence is preferable.
    Asked about Levi coming out and talking about the situation.
    Bristol refuses to speak about Levi other than to say he is a part of Tripp’s life. She says she isn’t here to talk about her personal life!

    Odd, I thought that is exactly what she was doing.

    “Someone needs to photoshop Bristol and Levi onto that pic and caption it – Bristol Says, ” Relax, Don’t Do It! “

    Palin, is STUPID. Levi, wasn’t, Bristol’s, “First”. He (Rumor), wasn’t her last or next to last….AFTER, Tripp, was born and now with her being 18 & coming out like this, she just put a price on her image. I betcha there are more then a couple videos out there, after, Friday, that will 10 fold in value to tabloids. Not to mention every next step is being watched.

    For a teenage girl, without guidance or support, looking for, “Love” & protection, this might get ugly.

    Guess they had to wait for Levi to move out of the house/her bedroom before coming out in support of abstinence.

  70. pearl89 says:

    According to the other side, Bristol volunteered to be a teen ambassador for this abstinence organization. When I first read this today, it just seemed strange to me that she would do this. Then I read that mama grizzly is going to be in NY this weekend promoting Alaskan seafood then it made sense. This is just another way for SP and BP to get a free trip to NY together. I don’t think for one minute that big mama Palin will let Bristol out on her own. Or maybe, I’ve just ingested so much Palin this year that I see things that just aren’t there there.

    This is April 1 right? Fools day? I just can’t believe this is true… I’ve never seen this company’s ads.

    I’ve seen other company ads like this when my daughter was an teen. When I would complain she say, “oh Mom, those are just HO ads, don’t you know anything?” Please….

  78. Professor Geezer says:

    @curiouser. Yes, absolutely! What you wrote totally does fit in terms of an inability to see a child as a separate person!

    That is so sad about Palin’s criticizing of Piper in Esquire.

  79. Professor Geezer says:

    TX Lisa, that is an AMAZING FIND!!! How bizarre that Bristol is now the Candies Foundation advocate after the Foundation criticized her so publicly!

    This makes no sense from any angle. I predict it is not going to go well from a marketing standpoint. I don’t think it will help Bristol Palin’s public profile either.

    Clearly, there’s hypocrisy on all sides: the Candies shoes are marketed as “sexual tools” for teenaged girls. Bristol has already said that abstinence is unrealistic. The Candies Foundation used Bristol as a poster girl for how not to behave.

    Whose bright idea was this?

  80. curiouser says:

    251 Professor Geezer Says:
    Psychologically, Sarah Palin does not see that Bristol is a separate person; she sees her daughter only as an extension of herself.
    ———–
    Would constantly putting words in someone else’s mouth and telling them what they think fit with not seeing the other as a separate person?

    I noticed SP doing that a lot when Piper was asked questions during interviews. She did it with Bristol during the GVS interview. When Trig was born and Willow thought he looked like he had DS, SP said something like “even if he does, you know you will love him”. My jaw was on the floor reading the part in the Esquire”s Todd article when SP egged Piper into trying a gymnastic move she didn’t know and then criticized her gymnastic ability (bottom half of page). (Whew, I’ve been wanting to get the Piper gymnastic ‘put down’ off my chest for awhile.)

    http://www.esquire.com/features/todd-palin-bio-0509-5

    I couldn’t find the reference, but think I remember that SP spoke of Bristol being a spokesperson for abstinence during the campaign, shortly after they announced Bristol’s pregnancy. Certainly this role for Bristol fits SP’s political ambitions. Hopefully, it’s a meaningful role for Bristol.

    Bristol would have gotten pregnant shortly after her mother announced the pregnancy with Trig (Mar. 5 ’08). Acting out much? Neither abstinence or contraception will prevent an ‘acting out’ teen from getting pregnant.

  81. TX Lisa says:

    Last fall, as part of its campaign against teen pregnancy, Candies Foundation placed full page PSA ads in the New York Times and New York Post. The ads featured a picture of Bristol Palin and Levi Johnston, among others, as examples of the “epidemic” of teen pregnancies today.

    So after being “Exhibit A” for the epidemic of teen pregnancies, Bristol is now going to advocate for the group?!

    On the webpage below, if you click on the small poster with Bristol and Levi’s picture and it will enlarge.

    “””Perhaps the Gov should investigate what other states have been doing with regard to energy-related bldg codes over the past forty years. Has anyone released a cost-benefit analysis of accepting the $29M for improving energy efficiency v. not accepting it??”””

    The US Air Force has been working out cost-benefit analyses for energy conservation regarding buildings for about 10 years. I think the data and findings are public property. A lot more than $29 million has been consumed for the information.

    And in stark contrast, First Lady Michelle Obama had a big day in NYC today.

    “…It sounded, though, like the highlight of her day — and to take her at her word, perhaps even her life as first lady so far — was the appearance with Elmo and Big Bird.

    “I never thought I’d be on ‘Sesame Street’ with Elmo and Big Bird and I was thrilled,” she told the crowd at the mission. “I’m still thrilled. I’m on a high….”

    That ad would actually be a good one for a diaphragm,
    Female barrier methods are WAY underrated
    I think the reason is that women are not supposed to grok that female barrier methods do not just apply to sexual intercourse but to all sorts of life situations and if you get used to trusting them for sex (they are very reliable IF fitted properly and used properly), then you might start employing the same concept in other life situations . . .
    and that might lead to not only female but also authentic male empowerment (the best part about diaphragms is they really lend themselves to practicing tantric nonejaculatory intercourse which is a mark of sexual maturity)

    and we know we are not supposed to be so empowered . . .

    The girl’s hand is in the diaphragm position (more or less)

    If only Noël Coward had been around to advise the Governor of Alaska. Don’t put your daughter on the stage, Mrs Palin. Especially if she’s a pregnant teenager with an on-off boyfriend and the world’s media zooming in on her bump.

    But Sarah Palin doesn’t have that much sense. And by turning her family into the cast of America’s favourite soap opera, she’s destroyed her credibility both as a mother and as any sort of political brain.

    I mean, the kid has not finished high school. What are the chances of a single Mom surviving on her own? Nil in Alaska, I’d guess. She Has to stay home, nice sentence, that isn’t guidance, she’s a prisoner with no personal space or privacy, methinks.

    She won’t be free till she gets the hell away from there. Far away. Now mom found her a job, no doubt.

    Bristol’s only preaching abstinence for *other* girls – the same way her mother wants to take choices away from *other* women, not herself and Bristol. Bristol never once said *she* intends to remain abstinent.

    ___________________________

    It would be awesome to see a video of that out-take….Bristol & Greta Interview:
    VAN SUSTEREN: So this was, obviously, a huge, unexpected event.

    BRISTOL: Yes. Definitely.

    VAN SUSTEREN: Is it good?

    BRISTOL: Yes, it is. Very good. I like being a mom. I love it.

    VAN SUSTEREN: Why?

    BRISTOL: Just, like, seeing him smile and stuff. It just — it’s awesome.

    VAN SUSTEREN: You know, you’re young.

    BRISTOL: Very young, yes.

    VAN SUSTEREN: And so some people think it’s — you know, that for a young person, it’s particularly challenging.

    BRISTOL: It is very challenging, but it’s so rewarding.
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    And then pointing out how different her life is from most who find themselves pregnant as a teen:
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    BRISTOL: Yes. He feels the same way I do. We both just — kids should just wait. It’s — I don’t know. It’s not glamorous at all.

    VAN SUSTEREN: I don’t want to pry to personally, but I mean, actually, contraception is an issue here. Is that something that you were just lazy about or not interested, or do you have a philosophical or religious opposition to it or…

    BRISTOL: No. I don’t want to get into detail about that. But I think abstinence is, like — like, the — I don’t know how to put it — like, the main — everyone should be abstinent or whatever, but it’s not realistic at all.

    VAN SUSTEREN: Why?

    BRISTOL: Because — I don’t want to get into details on this.

    VAN SUSTEREN: Well, no, I don’t mean personally, just big picture, not — not necessarily about you, but…

    BRISTOL: Because it’s more and more accepted now.

    (She’s right, most teen mothers don’t get freebies sent to them from all over the world, and most don’t have extended families who help them out with free housing, day care, etc…., and most don’t get to go on television and do interviews just because they got pregnant)

    , then freeze that with a voice over of the statement she has put out with Candies..

    And as is noted in the DailyKos story about this, Bristol better speak up about contraception and learn to be vocal about using it and how failure to use it could result in pregnancy or worse (std’s) or she is going to find that there is no place for someone in an advocacy role who is shy about talking about her own personal situation when that is what is supposed to have inspired her to help others.

  105. redwoodmuse says:

    I just had a horrible thought, what if SP told Bristol she had to start paying her own way, and ‘by the way, I’ve set up a contract for you…comes with clothes and shoes too.’ Talk about pimping out your family.

    I really hope that was just an aberrant thought and no where near the truth.

    The really sad thing here is that Candies won’t lose anything…even if Bristol bows out…look at all the press the company has garnered. There’s a tiny part of me that is sorry for Bristol…I lived on the street for 4 years -14 to 17 – married at 19 and had a baby at 21, divorced at 23, and I’ve done my share of stupid things while young (and older) but I also had a couple of adults who showed up and made me re-think some of my choices…. gave me some options….where is Bristol’s guidance?

  108. Nan says:

    I just can’t get thru all 200+ comments, so if I’m repeating something, I apologize.

    I have to say I feel more than a little sorry for Bristol; I’d be willing to bet this was something her mom signed her up for, in spite of her previous statement (re abstinence is unrealistic), just to prove some kind of point. Or to “make points.”

    How many times can Bristol *get* thrown under that dang bus, anyway?

    Well I hope that by making this choice Bristol (and her family) realize that she has opened herself up to TONS of tabloid speculation and attacks regarding her flip flopping messages. No more “kids are off limits” now. I also think that being associated with the “Candies” ad’s we’ve seen isn’t going to go along way on helping with her image should a court custody case ensue, and I am just waiting for the talk of her exploiting the family name for fame and fortune.

  121. KateinCanada says:

    My sympathy, Rubber Room, – I too had a teen pregnancy. And the Dalkon Shield was one the very worst tragedies of the sturggle to try and find good birth control. For people too young to remember, it was a very effective tiny IUD that didn’t cause as much cramping as other models, and quickly was recommended for people who couldn’t take or didn’t trust pills. But it had a little braided tail so it could be removed, and bacteria could travel up the tail into the uterus. It took a couple of years before it was banned and in that time many women got infections that led to sterility. That’s a terrible result from trying so hard to be careful. Life can be very unfair.

  122. PalinSucks says:

    “Bristol will likely have the baby with her.

    You think she will? Who would be watching him? I thought I read, the reason she is flying by night to get there is because she is not taking him?

    Either way, no way, this is going to go down well. Bristol just opened herself up to Evey IPhone in Wasilla. Tabloids will have her for lunch when she & her new boyfriend making out. No way this goes well for the baby either.

    Unwed mother Bristol Palin is going to take part in a national campaign to help raise awareness for teen pregnancy prevention.

    The 18-year-old daughter of Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin has been appointed as a Teen Ambassador for The Candie’s Foundation.

    Bristol Palin will participate in a town hall meeting Wednesday in New York.

    She said in a statement that she feels she could be a living example of the consequences of teen pregnancy.

    “If I can prevent even one girl from getting pregnant, I will feel a sense of accomplishment,” she said.

    Bristol Palin gave birth Dec. 27 to a boy named Tripp. She and the boy’s father, Levi Johnston, have separated.

    Sarah Palin announced her daughter’s pregnancy on Sept. 1, days after Sen. John McCain picked her to be his Republican vice presidential running mate.

    Bristol Palin in February told Fox News that teens should avoid sex, but abstinence is “not realistic at all.”

    Maria Dolgetta, a spokeswoman for the foundation, said Palin will be paid for her appearance but declined to disclose how much

  137. PalinSucks says:

    Bristol Palin On “Good Morning America” Wednesday

    Now it’s Bristol turn. Alaska Governor Sarah Palin’s daughter Bristol will appear on “Good Morning America” Wednesday morning in her first television interview since her former-boyfriend Levi Johnston broke his silence about their break-up.

    “…In April 2003, Mr. Cole, without admitting or denying the allegations of the Securities and Exchange Commission (‘SEC’), consented to the entry by the SEC of an administrative order in which he agreed to cease and desist from violating or causing any violations or future violation of certain books and records and periodic reporting provisions and the anti-fraud provisions of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (the ‘Exchange Act’). Mr. Cole also paid a $75,000 civil monetary fine.,,,”

    Okay, as an artist, I have to say that the photo in the ad is very nice…artistically done…but…it looks like it should be a fine art piece for the Seattle Erotic Art Festival!

    Can’t wait to see if one of Palin’s spokespeople will release a statement that the ad is misunderstood, we don’t see the subtleties and nuances…obviously, the girl is promoting abstinence, her hand is positioned to block the rocket from entering her great Galaxy!

  150. Professor Geezer says:

    Mudpups, what did I say when Celtic Diva filed the Arctic Cat complaint?

    With Palin, it’s “FOLLOW THE FASHION.”
    Repeat that meme after me and get it into the media!

    Fashion ALWAYS gets her into trouble. Now Mama P. is spreading the Naughty Monkey shoe fetish to Bristol, via Candies….

    Very sad…It’s part of Palin’s personality disorder to be so obsessed looking good, “sexy,” and fashion.

    And none of them insane

    Imagine there’s no queen Sarah
    It isn’t hard to do
    No more killing to die for
    No scary religions too
    Imagine all the peoples
    Living life in peace

    You may say there are dreamers
    But Palin is not the one
    Someday soon we’ll impeach her
    And Alaska will be won(derful)!

    Imagine no ethics violations
    I wonder if you can
    No fake pregnancies
    No promoting Wasilla’s Klan
    Imagine all the free people
    Groovin’ in the world.

  182. PalinSucks says:

    THE JUSTICE Department’s report that movie studios market adult-oriented films to young people was a hot topic during the 2000 presidential campaign. If officials had examined the use of sexually explicit ads, the same might have been true for the advertising industry. Increasingly, sexual content in the form of innuendo, nudity, and sexual situations and behavior is being used to sell products to teenagers and young adults.

    Consider, for instance, a commercial for Candie’s fragrances that was popular among young people in the study. The ad featured actress Alyssa Milano writhing longingly on a bed as her boxers-clad male friend searched for something in the bathroom, seemingly for condoms. During his search, the camera cuts intermittently to provocative shots of her as she sprays perfume on herself. The viewer soon discovers it’s cologne he is looking for, which he sprays on himself, including a quick spray in his boxer shorts. The last scene is a close-up of the fragrance bottles rocking back and forth on the sheets of the bed.

  197. Martha says:

    she told Fox News in February that abstinence “is not realistic” for young people.”

    The Candies Foundation announced Tuesday it has appointed teen mom Bristol Palin as its new ambassador.
    The foundation, which encourages abstinence to prevent pregnancy among teenage girls, has chosen Palin to help promote National Day to Prevent Teen Pregnancy on May 6.
    ======================================================================
    Like mother like daughter? I don’t think so. When Bristol was speaking with Greta about “abstinence is not realistic”, that is when Sarah broke into the interview and started with “what she MEANT to say was” and took over from there.

    Palin is forcing this on Bristol as part of her 2012 bid.

    It is interesting to note that the high school in Juneau HAS comprehensive sex ed.

    If Palin had lived in the governors mansion instead of collecting per diem for living at home in Wassilla, maybe Bristol would not have become pregnant. At LEAST she would have had the tools and knowledge to prevent pregnancy and STDs.

    Teens from ALL the high schools in Alaska have petitioned their state government for “comprehensive sex education”

    http://www.adn.com/front/story/777257.html

    The Alaska Association of Student Governments overwhelmingly passed a resolution during its spring conference in Sitka two weeks ago asking for “a mandatory, comprehensive, medically accurate, age-appropriate nine-week sex education course” for all high school students statewide.

    “Comprehensive” in this context is the label used in contrast to “abstinence only” varieties of sex education, which some religious or politically conservative parents tend to favor. Because of that and other underlying controversies on the topic, the resolution’s authors were unsure of how it would be received.

    Co-author Makenzie Curtis-Johnson, a 17-year-old junior at West High School in Anchorage and occasional Planned Parenthood volunteer, said she was surprised when she found out her peers across the state showed such strong support.

    “I wasn’t quite sure it would work, whether we could actually write a decent (resolution). But then it got started and everyone involved got really interested,” she said. “When you think about the subject, it’s a controversial thing. And when you think of teenagers, you don’t necessarily think they’d want to add mandatory subjects to their schedules, but they think it’s important and that’s really admirable.”
    The resolution, on which some 225 student representatives from 20 Alaska high schools discussed at the meeting, ticks off 19 different reasons for mandating sex ed courses, including evidence of abstinence-only programs’ ineffectiveness, the public cost of teens bearing children and Alaska’s position as No. 1 in the country for per capita cases of the sexually transmitted disease chlamydia.
    Sex education is handled differently from school district to school district. In Anchorage, there’s no requirement at all, Curtis-Johnson and McNelly said.

    “The main point is, Alaska as a state doesn’t have a standardized sex ed curriculum, period,” McNelly said. “We deserve to know. If our parents don’t want to tell us, that’s OK, but it’s our lives. We need to make the choices.”

    Curtis-Johnson continued the thought: “The more information you have, the better. I’ve never seen information as a hurtful thing. It helps you make better choices. The choices are still there whether you have the information or not.”

    Copies of the resolution are on their way to state legislators, the State Board of Education & Early Development and Anchorage municipal and education officials.It’s a welcome recommendation, Juneau-Douglas High School junior Jacob Hope said.

    “I think that could be useful, tell kids what they need to do before they experience it,” the 17-year-old said while hanging out with his girlfriend after school.

    sex and relationships

    In Juneau, high schoolers have a mandatory one semester health class that includes a five-week unit on sex education, said JDHS health teacher Nancy Seamount. Most students take it their freshman year.

    The unit covers a lot more than just the biological mechanics of human reproduction and the associated risks.

    “It’s sad to me when sexuality is presented only as preventing STIs (sexually transmitted infections) and pregnancy. That’s so shallow,” Seamount said.

    Seamount’s lessons also cover a suite of concepts that could just as easily be found in a marriage counseling session, such as personal communication skills, emotional intimacy, dating and distinguishing love from infatuation.

    Parents are sent a letter outlining every lesson in the unit and can opt their children out of any of them. It’s structured so that abstinence is reinforced throughout the unit, with potentially objectionable pieces on contraceptives and preventing STDs grouped into two specific lessons. Seamount has been teaching the class for 19 years and said each year one or two students are pulled out of the lessons that deviate from the abstinence only message. She could recall only one student who was pulled out of the entire unit.

    “I think it’s more likely that she’s hiding (and may actually be going to school, heaven forbid!).”

    Would be AWESOME, if she escapes, her mothers ignorance.

    BREAKING NEWS:

    I wondered earlier about this being that Chris Cuomo is the panel moderator:

    This message was on the GMA Twitter page:

    Tmrw Morning on @GMA: Bristol Palin’s First Live Interview

  203. ENOUGHwiththetrainwreck says:

    at some point, the palin kids will escape the clutches of their mother and live a little in the real world……when they look back (should there therapist think that is a good idea)……they will be speechless.

    as speechless as i am.

    the palin brand is all about selling sex. this is what made me crazy when i first listened to her lying words and looked into her winky eyes. crazy thinking of all the truly smart, accomplished women who would not have squandered that rare opportunity with a sexual tone.

    bristol — get the hell out that house and open your eyes girl.
    levi — best be getting that book written cause your child needs his daddy.

  204. OT: I did not know where to put this but it’s pertinent to AKM and all blog commentators. Threat Level at Wired posted this piece regarding measure, H.R. 1966 and bloggers who “coerce, intimidate, harass, or cause substantial emotional distress to a person.” http://www.wired.com/threatlevel/2009/05/prison-awaiting-hostile-bloggers/

  205. northofdenali says:

    As is the norm for the Palin gang – tacky, tacky, tawdry, totally lacking tastefulness.

    Poor Bristol. With a mother like hers, she had NO chance at all, did she?

  206. honestyinGov says:

    Just ONE question…?

    Do you have to be be a ‘hypocrite’ before you join the GOP… OR do you join first and then become a hypocrite…?
    This on the same day that Miss California topless ‘ model photos’ hit the web and she wants to be a spokesperson for NOM. (National Org. for Marriage)

    Way to stay Classy Bristol. I guess that excuse about the ‘Kids being off-limits’ no longer applies now… since they are putting their own face and image out there. And will Meg be making statements for Bristol as well. What say you Meg….?

  210. mae lewis says:

    Bristol speaking about abstinence is like asking Mrs. O’Leary to preach about fire prevention. Seriously, will Bristol be answering questions from the audience? Anyone plan on attending to ask her some questions– harder questions than the ones GVS asked on Fox.

  211. Annie says:

    They don’t like the picture AKM put up?!?!? The picture is from a Candies ad. This is very same company that Bristol is now a spokesmother for their charity foundation.

  212. zyggy says:

    lol, so many funny posts. Bristol and Sarah are both poster children for abstinence. But wait, neither of them seemed to have practiced it. I realize everyone should get a 2nd chance, but not these two.

    Candies needs to find someone that actually practices abstinence, a real role model as opposed to the wanna be. I find Bristol, who I think is just being pushed by her mommy dearest to do this gig, and it’s all for the promotion of Palin’s quest to be Queen of the world.

    Can you say “Hyprocrite”? Doubt Palin even knows what that means.

  213. austintx says:

    Wonder if Bristol is taking her baby(s) along ?? If so , what say Team Levi ??

  214. nswfm CA says:

    LynnRockets, you have hit the nail on the head. They are super freaks, and unfortunately we are on the receiving end of their freakishness.

    Pretty disgusting ad – they should have named the shoes Canties which would rhyme with Panties as in get in yours. The irony of pairing Bristol with a sex for sell company and “Abstinence Day” has me sighing heavily. I can only hope modesty is back in style when my daughter is in her teens. Gag.

  218. The Rubber Room Hotel says:

    I read the Kos story also though they miss some of the point of safe sex. Safe Sex is not only about teen pregnancy it is about avoiding STD’s.

  222. FW says:

    curioser…it will be exactly like her lame interview with GVS. Bristol doesn’t exactly seem like the sharpest knife in the drawer. Either does Levi for that matter…

  223. anon blogger says:

    Shameful. I guess that is about the nicest thing I can come up with. As a matter of fact, the whole idea is a crock. Just another political ploy, making amends with the base while generating potential votes from young folks for her mother’s own political ambitions. And the baby will be the one that ultimately suffers. For once, I would like to see the best interests of the children be made paramount. I better stop…I almost said something ugly.

    Thanks, AKM…

  224. UK Lady says:

    Comment on Kos re the ‘F me’ pumps

    “guess the ‘wait for me’ pumps weren’t selling. :lol:

  225. The Rubber Room Hotel says:

    irishgirl…, I agree with you, unless Bristol is as much of a narcissist as her mother, I think someday she will be very angry with her mother for using her this way, and allowing her self to be used….

  226. curiouser says:

    The post and comments are just too funny. I’m laughing but feeling sad at the same time. Hope we get to find out what Bristol actual says on the Candie abstinence panel.

    SUPER FREAK

    The kind that acts just like her mother
    Bristol and Sarah never let you down
    When its unwed pregnancy, ow girl
    She needs a firm reprimand
    A little family planning also
    Sarah models for Arctic Cat in the night time
    Bristol shills for Candies

    Palin girls are pretty wild now

    They are “family values” girls
    (That’s what they want you to know)
    From their beehives to their toenails
    (Candies on their feet)
    And they love to preach of abstinence and pro-life
    It seems a bit obscene
    (Seein’ who it’s coming from)
    Do what we say not what we do
    Is the lesson that they’re teachin’
    When they partake in the incense, wine and candles
    It’s not a Holy scene

    Just sayin’.

    Plus, he looks too much like one of the guys from Sugar Ray for me to buy anything he’s pushing. “Lemonade and Brownies” was great, but their subsequent albums had the pungent stank of corporate blahdiblah.

    Also, the youth of the female model is making me uncomfortable. 16 will get you 20? If you’re lucky, 16….

  234. MinNJ says:

    A very close friend of mine received a settlement from a class action suit against the makers of the Dalcon shield; it was a very difficult time in her life, and all of her friends shared in her grief. She now has two adopted children and a good family life.

    Question, pointed out earlier. Is Willow hiding out from embarrassment or being hid out of embarrassment?

  236. Michael says:

    Bristol admitted herself in her myspace-comments which were recently published that she is a “slut”…

    Pretty interesting comments there, really.

    Google: “Gawker Bristol Palin”

    Gotta love those Christian families.

  237. FW says:

    Canadian Neighbour…yes, I saw that Hayden was on that panel…her ads for Candies were just as soft core…they had her pictured at Serendipity in NYC doing all sorts of things with ice cream and puppies. Yeah, maybe Hayden can talk about her relationship with her 31 year old Costar from Heroes (she was 18 when she dated him for over a year).

    good point, b/c I don’t think she meant to spill the beans on her mother, whose footsteps she followed. that whole family wouldn’t know about being honest if it punched them in the face!
    also so sorry about your ordeal

    @crystalwolf aka caligrl #88
    you make me laugh…yeah, one foot on the ground prevents unwanted pregnancy, don’t you know that? lol

  240. Rubber Room, I think somebody else said that. I was already familiar with your story (from the forum), but again, (((hugs)))

  241. C. Rock says:

    Bristol Palin Abstinence is not realistic

  242. Annie says:

    I didn’t know Candies sponsored Britney’s Circus tour. Perhaps they’ll use her song “If U Seek Amy” in their next commercial.

  243. The Rubber Room Hotel says:

    txindygirl… Thanks……. For me the first real peace in my heart I had was the first time I talked to my daughter was on the phone and she told me that her parents were great and she loved them very much and were very close…….
    Even with the excitement of finding her and talking to her for the first time, that was the moment that the brick that had been sitting on my heart for years was lifted…….

  244. Ripley says:

    Oh yeah, and this: If Bristol follows through with this stuff, she’s fair game.

  245. Lainey says:

    To those who tweet: is palin’s twitter account set up so that only she can ramble and ream, but will not accept or read responses or rebuttles from anyone ‘out there’? I imagine she blocks all incoming messages, so you can’t question her motives or correct her bogus comments. …nice

  246. Canadian Neighbour says:

    let it run,
    If money or free travel and expenses are involved — it get’s fuzzy for GINO to think.

    Thing being now — Bristol is 18 so is of age to make her own choice but as displayed in the interview with Greta, Bristol looks like she almost fears speaking up to GINO so if Mommy says yes, she does.

  247. Ripley says:

    The disparity between what they say and what they do has now risen to a new zenith, IMHO.

    no pun intended.

    Bwaaaahaaaahaaaaaaaaahaaaaaaaaa!!!!! This is absolutely hilarious.! Poor Bristol. I find it hard to believe that she is doing this willing.

  252. Canadian Neighbour says:

    The Tips for Teens page lists facts, here’s one of them which is totally false:

    31: The percentage of male teens who did not use a condom the first time they had sex.

  253. Quetzalcoatl says:

    Candie’s has hired Britney Spears, Print Ads, LHS, scroll down a tad.

  254. Quetzalcoatl says:

    The ad shown targets a specific demographic. OTOH, there are plenty smart teenagers that will scoff at it plenty. Seems they’re copying edgy brands like Diesel’s redefining masculinity cologne WTH???

    The ad with the woman on the loo, again targets rave culture [gives it a nod maybe?] without the seedy loo, but they were coed and everyone was in there of both sexes. One place had absolutely no doors and a line up inside, everyone just did their business and moved on. As I said, a different culture, from a while back, I may add.

    It’s quite odd how this company is attempting to promote teen pregnancy awareness with Bristol at the helm AND these ads and PSA’s attached to their ‘brand’. Someone is doing meth there or what, because it’s schizophrenic. Such ‘family values’, indeed. I see.

    Here’s Candie’s PSA tv ad.

  255. jojobo1 says:

    The fact that Bristol already said on national TV that abstinence was not effective will follow her around and make any other point she trys to make moot. Ms Palin is again trying to back step and it will not work this time

  256. ravenstrick says:

    You have got to be kidding.

    Well, this is Bristol’s chance to imitate her mother and get her own all expense paid trips around the country to make personal appearances. However, Bristol won’t be neglecting a state government when she jets around. You think she’ll be bringing BOTH babies with her?

    I guess I really don’t understand how she is a role model for abstinence. If I were a teenager I’d be wondering, “Why did she get to have sex and I don’t?”

  257. redwoodmuse says:

    I got dumped in the bucket and I don’t think I said the anything wrong, so…I’ll recraft what I said anyway…

    okay, it’s mean, but someone ought to send those ads to the other guys over there (gestures with thumb) asking them if this is what they meant by abstinence and good family values?

    just saying…

    and from a purely business standpoint, this is a brilliant move on Candies’ part…no matter what happens or what the fallout is for Bristol, look at all the folks talking about the brand…

    I feel a little bit bad for Bristol, cause she sure isn’t getting the kind of advice that will allow her to feel good about herself later in life…

    guess this is how we end up with the “fruit not falling far from the tree” theory

    and Levi might want to be crafting a legal argument for parental fitness here….

    random thoughts ….

  258. The Rubber Room Hotel says:

    Bristol Palin ” I am a result of teen pregnancy and who better to talk about it.”
    No Bristol dear Trip is a result of teen pregnancy, wonder what he will have to say when he is your age.

    problem child I am with you on that……..

    Boy all the crap that has chapped my behind when it comes to the Palins this takes the cake.
    I am pretty angry right now, this is to much…..

    You see mudflaters there is more to my story…..
    After my daughter was born…. and after i went through the court process of putting her up for adoption. I ( with the help of the good old family doc) had an IUD implanted. Well ever hear of a DELCON SHIELD….. A year later I became very ill, the IUD was removed and several years after that i had to have a full hysterectomy…. I never was able to have other children which caused years and years of emotional depression for me.
    I will say that all of this was a direct result of no sex or sexual education….
    I did not understand the first thing about birth control…. STD’s or my own personal self worth….
    Yes i have come to terms with all today…..

    Which is why abstinence only education is so stupid. But to couple it with sellers of soft porn is just too much…..
    mudflaters and AKM thanks for giving me the form to vent and tell my story.

  270. Kalena says:

    Candie’s has a long history of using over the top sex sells type of ads. You’d think that The Palins would have at least done a bit of checking into the company that started this foundation…especially since they’re all about family values and abstinence. *rolling eyes here*

  271. JennAK says:

    These are some of the celebrity messages the Candie’s Foundation sponsors:
    • Be Sexy: It Doesn’t Mean You Have to Have Sex
    • Be Smart: Don’t Give Up Your Education
    • Be Smart: You Are Too Young to Start
    • Not Really the Way You Pictured Your First Crib
    • Not What You Had in Mind for Your First Set of Wheels
    • You Think Being in School Sucks
    http://www.candiesfoundation.org/history.html

    I have never even heard of this organization before, but apparently they are very influential “Neil Cole founded the Foundation in 2001 and since its’ launched The Candies Foundation has made over 500,000,000 million impressions to the teenage audience. The Foundation means a tremendous amount to him and is something that he is most proud of in his career.”

    Total respect to you, Rubber Room Hotel, and any other readers who have made tough choices.

    I can see Bristol making a positive impact if she can somehow say, “gosh taking on the responsibilities of motherhood right now is a huge effort” and still tell her son he’s the best thing yet to ever happen to her. It is unfortunate that he’s gotten so much notoriety before he’s gotten teeth…

    The Candies hypocrisy makes me sick, though. Especially since they’re funding programs that (at least in Fla) make kids no less likely to experiment, but less likely to protect themselves from communicable diseases. All the while, they’re selling early and cheap sexual experience as The Thing Which Will Make You Cool.

    yecch.

    Unplanned pregnancies in my high school went down after they put a very broad-perspective sex ed class (incl getting kids thinking about their goals, how to stand up to peer pressure, etc.) in eighth grade.

    Isn’t this an ad for fragrences?? This is not the abstinence ad.

    These are all ads run by the company that started this abstinence foundation which fundraises for said organization.

    To put these kind of provocative ads out targeting teens for their products then to speak out the other side of their mouth promoting abstinence — they are playing both sides of the fence aka hypocrites.

    Candies is also the sponsor of Britney Spears Tour — now that’s someone all young girls should aspire to be — NOT. Great role model for teens — again NOT

    Actually, young people not learning about science is the problem. Therefore, in a mighty 180 degree turn, I guess this must in fact be a pro-abstinence message.

    Oh, wait, she doesn’t support that kind of science. I’m dazed again.

    If you go to the candies.com and look at the bottom you will see “iconix” click on that and here’s what you get:

    Neil Cole founded the company in 1992 and has served as the Chairman of the Board, President and Chief Executive Officer since February 23, 1993. Mr. Cole also served as Chairman of the Board, President, Treasurer and a director of New Retail Concepts, Inc. (“NRC”), a publicly held licensing company, from its inception in 1986 until it was merged with and into the Company in August 1998. Mr. Cole founded and serves as Chairman of the Board of the Candie’s Foundation, a public charity dedicated to educating teens about the consequences of teen pregnancy. Mr. Cole is an attorney who graduated from Hofstra law school in 1982.
    Wow! Very mixed messages here! Christian values…oh SEX sells! Then we have Bristol who was for it before she was against it…to tell us no!
    WTF?????

  286. delnorteco says:

    some how I am not suprised to see this ad. these people are CRAZY.is a pay day to them the only thing they see?? send this picture to the other side,they will either start pulling their hair out or some how spin this to make it OK

  287. PalinSucks says:

    And, as a follow up, to when abstinence thingy EPICALLY FAILS…will Bristol, educate young girls how to start dating again within 30 days & play keep away with the baby’s daddy?

  288. UK Lady says:

    I’m so glad things turned out better for you, you would be a far better spokesperson for sexual education than any of those idiots in the Palin clan.

    On CNN just now, Jack Cafferty had his question for the viewers, “Rush Limbaugh says Sarah Palin is the best the GOP has, what do you think?”

    Well that’s a no brainer if ever I heard one.

  289. Basheert says:

    Now now now – these are just two young people learning about science.

    first the AP “gravely” misquoted… now she stands by “grave” concerns… either these folks are attempting to appear serious or they just need to invest in a thesaurus…

  291. Lisabeth says:

    Her tweet is stupid. I am so sick of her! Can’t you guys her rid of her already. The woman is not a team player. She would make a horrible president. Her constant complaining about “the Feds” and even calling them that all the time is unPatriotic.

  292. pvazwindy says:

    The whole damn family is frickin nuts. can’t you just see these “Candie’s) ads following palin around, as she sits in the local pizza parlor, promoting herself.

  293. debinOH says:

    Wonder how they going to spin this one. How are they spinning Miss California’s pictures? If I could stomach their devotion for one minute I would go check myself.

    Annie, thanks for finding that ad!

    Rubber Room Hotel: I am deeply moved by your experience and the one which you shared with your daughter, and am also enlightened by your observations. Thank you.

  296. nswfm CA says:

    Well, Bristol did say she was a sl** on myspace.

    Nonetheless, let the Palin back pedaling begin.

    Way OT, Scott Palin, CA dreaming of AK and other Santa Barbara mudflatters: stay safe from the latest brushfire.

  297. winkwinkWA says:

    Britney(no underpants) Spears is the model on Candies.com I really don’t think GINO is planning on running for pres., she’s keeping her supporters on a string, so she can collect all the money she can, while she can…Sarah—the biggest grifter in the world. She’s got quite a money making scheme going.

  298. Lisabeth says:

    Isn’t this an ad for fragrences?? This is not the abstinence ad.

  299. pvazwindy says:

    gonna be an interesting summer. the palin world is gonna come crashing down.

    This just tweeted by SP –

    I stand by grave concerns fed pkge prohibits opportunities for AK to develop, eg. require AK to adopt new energy codes to accept more funds.
    «»«»«»«»«»«»«»«»«»
    Perhaps the Gov should investigate what other states have been doing with regard to energy-related bldg codes over the past forty years. Has anyone released a cost-benefit analysis of accepting the $29M for improving energy efficiency v. not accepting it??

  301. The Rubber Room Hotel says:

    Thanks UK Lady, my daughter now 30 and I are very close we talk almost every day though we are thousands of miles apart.

    But I guess I take this very personal and find this whole thing just too much.
    I made a point in my statement above to say “sexual education” not just sex education.

    The other thing that gets me, wasn’t Levi just blasted by the Palin camp for being out for fame and fortune. I wonder how Levi feels about his child’s mother being the poster girl for this one. And does Levi know?

    no kidding. yestterday a right-wing huffpo reader stated “what’s wrong with strip clubs?” (refering to the post on Republican meeting at a strip club).

    i suggested he take his mom to one on mother’s day …

  306. Frank LI NY says:

    I guess he really did have a rocket in his pocket too, also.

  307. What is it with Palins and creepy shoe choices?

  308. MinNJ says:

    Remember the ad of the girl on the toilet with the Candies shoes? Can’t remember her name right now…aarrgh! (with Jim Carrie, is against immunizations because of her son, has breast implants)

  309. UK Lady says:

    Rubber Room Hotel

    Glad you had the chance for meeting your daughter. Sorry you had such an awful time.

  310. C. Rock says:

    I’m sorry but the Palin’s bring this stuff upon them selves. They will never learn.

  311. The Rubber Room Hotel says:

    I was a pregnant teen.
    I made my choice to stay pregnant then put my daughter up for adoption.
    Many years later I had the grat joy of being reunited with my daughter.
    I can tell you that the first thing I let her know is that she was the creation of a very beautiful act and that I loved her so much that I wanted better for her than what I could provide. But that of all things her creation came from a very beautiful thing.

    After all these years what I can say is. 1, my pregnancy was a direct result of no sexual education, 2, my parents (who I love) were unable to give me the love and support that I needed a the time and I looked elsewhere, and had no understanding that sex was not necessarily an act of love.

  312. debinOH says:

    You know if you go to Huff Po today you can also too see one picture (I guess there are more) of Miss California posing topless when she was a teenager. I wonder where her parents were also too?

    I am so sick & tired of all these freakin’ religious wackos telling all of us how to run our lives. How they miss their own “logs” is lost on me.

    Wonder how much Bristol is getting paid. And I also agree that when Tripp gets older and reads that she wants to prevent other teens from having to go through this how he will feel?

  313. UK Lady says:

    OMG! Blue Idaho

    You’re right. Urgh!

  314. Canadian Neighbour says:

    FW,
    Hayden Panettiere is also on the panel with Bristol.

  315. Professor Geezer says:

    Wow. Christian Family Values just aren’t what they used to be.

  316. FW says:

    This must be an older ad…the guy pictured is Mark McGrath from the band Sugar Ray…their newer ads are no better…in the past they have featured Jenny McCarthy bare-butt on the toilet…all very Lolita-esque

  317. Blue Idaho says:

    Well you know it’s o.k. to promote sex if your making money. Does it look like this young man has wood?

  318. Blue_in_AK says:

    I’m speechless.

  319. Annie says:

    Oh my, I just noticed the guy’s rocket looks ready to blast off. Just say “NO,” girlfriend.

  320. UK Lady says:

    Sweet baby bejeebus!! What the hell were they thinking!

    Wonder how impressed the fundies would be if they saw this ad with Bristol and Levi’s face on. That might make them think twice about their new little icon of abstinence.

  321. Lee says:

    There are no words.

    But here is my first thought.

    This is an out and out soft porn add for advocateing sex. It has nothing to do with abstinence.

  322. FW says:

    Yup, awesome…the company that became famous in the 70’s for creating the “F me” heels favored by strippers and streetwalkers today.

    Check out their Britney Spears and Hayden Panettiere ads…lots of poses with them licking lollipops and ice cream cones while clad in tacky (and very little) clothing…stay classy Palin family, way to represent.

  323. MinNJ says:

    As I previously said, I am creeped out by all things and everything that is Palin; truly horrifying and incongruent to see and for all involved. Cognitive dissonance at its best.

  324. NY Dem says:

    Bristol Palin – a teen spokesperson ???

    Wonder how poor Tripp will feel when he is old enough to understand what a “mistake” he was. That his birth and conception had nothing to do with a beautiful act, he was just youthful indiscretion. Not that his parents had strong passionate feelings for each other, and were madly in love at the time.
    Nope he is now poster boy for “I should have kept my knees together”.

    Gosh, I guess he’s taking over from Track. GINO was preggers with Track before eloping with Dud.

  327. strangelet says:

    Actually, if it weren’t a picture of the shuttle, they (or FlyInUrEye) could turn it into an abstinence ad with a photoshopped explosion.

    WOULDN’T IT BE NICE
    (sung to the Beach Boys song “Wouldn’t It Be Nice”)

    Wouldn’t it be nice if Sarah Palin
    Represents the brand new G.O.P.
    And wouldn’t it be nice if daughter Bristol
    Becomes the face of teen abstinency

    You know that truth can be stranger than fiction
    But this grabs me just like a drug addiction

    Wouldn’t it be nice if Sarah Palin
    Is the Red State candidate anew
    The Democrats will win the next election
    Then to Sarah, we can bid adieu

    And though she’ll feel that life is such a bummer
    She can spend her time with Joe the Plumber
    Wouldn’t it be nice

    Maybe if we think and wish and hope and pray it might come true
    Sarah then could find a periodical to subscribe to
    She could be learning
    Instead of book burning

    Wouldn’t it be nice

    (bah ba ba ba ba ba bah)
    (bah ba ba ba ba ba bah)

    You know the more it seems we sing about it
    It only makes it worse to live without it
    So let’s sing about it
    Wouldn’t it be nice

    (bah ba ba ba ba ba bah)
    (bah ba ba ba ba ba bah)
    (bah ba ba ba ba ba bah)
    (bah ba ba ba ba ba bah)
    (fading)

  330. Closet Mudpup says:

    This must be the rebranding of abstinence.

  331. strangelet says:

    Oy. Evidently, I don’t read the publications that Candies advertises in.

  332. rocket says:

    Abstinence is not realistic at all.

    Classy…
    Yup this is the example that I would use to teach my daughter about abstinence…..
    this whole thing makes no sense as I posted in the last thread….

    Is this the new Christian Conservatism??? Do the Palins even see the message this sends, how stupid of me , of course they do, but it’s OK as long as they get Press!!! God opened a door, they ran in !!

    more mixed up than mixed, but I get your drift …….argh……let’s just set back the progress of civilization a few decades.

  339. Oh dear! (That looks like pwn to me.)

  340. AlaskaGuy says:

    Well, I see that it says ‘No Comments’, meaning I’m first, but all I can think to say is ‘No Comment’.

    Nice placement of the phallic rocket.
