Track Palin files for divorce

Track Palin, the eldest son of former vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin, is splitting from wife Britta Hanson, TMZ reports.

The couple filed their divorce documents jointly in Alaska, which under state law means the two have already settled property and custody issues, including child support.

<strong>Track, 23, and Britta married in May 2011. The high school sweethearts welcomed daughter Kyla three months later.

Pre-marital sex and pregnancy seem to be a pattern with the Palin Clan.

2. Family values.

The Republicans are constantly saying how they are much better in that department. In reality, they have multiple spouses and/or a strong tendency to get pregnant out of wedlock.

It's the hypocrisy. Normally, the son of a semi-infamous politician's marriage ending would be completely unimportant. But his mother was several months pregnant when she herself got married, although to her credit she's still married to her first husband. His sister had a child out of wedlock. This young man's girlfriend was six months pregnant when they got married. And these are the kind of people who go around telling us we're immoral.

It's the hypocrisy.

12. I understand your point.

I just don't think we should give Palin the dignity of our attention

23. I don't actually recall Track Palin saying anything about this sort of stuff,

Nor can I remember him telling us we're immoral. Is it hypocrisy when a child doesn't live the lifestyle that the parent espouses? Are the parents who are in the political arena personally responsible for the life choices their adult children make?

8. Well, Sarah Palin and her ilk

were always expressing the moral superiority of their beliefs.

Apparently their morals are not so superior.

6. I guess since Palin decided not to run for President, Track decided he didn't need to be

married to his baby's mama. It was a shotgun wedding in case Mama Grizzley was serious about running. She couldn't have another out of wedlock grandbaby and still hold her head up in the evangelical circles while trying to convence them to shell out additional money for her books, her PAC, and eventually her candidacy.

While I don't give a damn about the Palin's politics or religion. This just represent another kid growing up in a one parent family.

15. Track, 23, and Britta married in May 2011...welcomed daughter Kyla three months later.

That abstinence stuff really works like gangbusters for the Palins, doesn't it?

16. A marriage made in heaven....

...or palin's heaven. We all recognize it to be something much less. One whole year? Welcoming a 3 month old after the wedding sort of gives me the idea this was just another palin-shot-gun wedding, eh?

18. Not sure it matters.

The only possible justification I can think of for caring about this would be if Caribou Barbie had taken a hardline anti-divorce stance in public...and to my knowledge, she's never gone there.

19. No, but the out of wedlock births thing is telling, with their 'abstinence only' position.

2 for 5 so far.

The little-known son of a half-term governor and 'reality show' grifter - who has got far too much publicity already.
