It’s interesting but almost a cliche. What I think is more interesting and much sadder is that now the Rendell is out office and will never be running or holding office again, his marriage is over.

The question, they have been married for 40 years. How many years did they stay together strictly so he could be a married family man while running for or in office?

Am I the only one who finds this very very distasteful?

…reminds me of the reading of the will in the movie The Devil’s disciple starring Kirk Douglas, Burt Lancaster and Lawrence Olivier:

During the reading of the will his Kirk Douglas’ Brother Christie played by Neil McCallum is left £50 on the day he marries a certain lady, if she will have him. Douglas’ character Richard Dudgeon and Christie then have the following exchange:

Richard Dudgeon: But will she have him?

Christie Dudgeon: She will if I have £50

Here is the story:

Bristol Palin and Levi Johnston reveal exclusively in the new Us Weekly that they are getting married.

And, they tell Us Weekly, former vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin has been kept in the dark about their plans … until now.

“We got engaged two weeks ago,” Bristol, 19, tells Us Weekly. “It felt right, even though we don’t have the approval of our parents.”

It’s not for me to say Johnston can be trusted or no, and as a rule, barring violence it is always better for a father and mother to be together and married for a child, the first priority but when I hear about this I can’t get that scene out of my head and I have a bad feeling about this, but I wish them all the best.

Watch this blow away all other stories on Memeorandum today.

Update: Quote from DaTechWife: “It will be the first wedding for them both, it won’t be the last.”

Update 2: Now a hotair headline

Update 3: It’s storytime at Robert Stacy’s!

Update 4: Oh Lonely conservative you should know Gossip is always easier than thought.

Update 5 Yeah it’s “Johnston” not “Johnson” fixed it.

…why this isn’t racism?

If I’m Robert Byrd I’m really confused right now, and not due to my age.

And they agreed with me that it wasn’t something to critique

Apparently he should say the same thing to CBS and Sally Quinn:

When it comes to things that caused Al and Tipper Gore to lose sleep and ultimately their love for each other, it turns out that George W. Bush was higher on the list than chlorofluorocarbons and Twisted Sister — at least according to a “family friend.”

I’m more than a little ashamed of myself that in my first post about the Gore separation that I didn’t think to blame Bush for Al and Tipper’s marital breakdown — but fortunately CBS News and Sally Quinn were there to pick up the slack:

Smitty meanwhile offers a particularly Baptist take on the subject.
