Palin and Contraception

Barack Obama told the media to "back off" the story that Sarah Palin's 17 year-old daughter is pregnant, but left-wing bloggers can't resist the temptation to sink their fangs into Gov. Palin because she opposed spending tax dollars on "explicit sex-ed programs".
"Palin family sticks with anti-abortion, anti-contraception, anti-single motherhood principles and arranges shotgun wedding for Sarah and Todd Palin's 17 year-old daughter," writes Matthew Yglesias of the Center for American Progress. The problem with that statement, aside from the venom, is that it's not entirely true, according to the Anchorage Daily News:
So much for Palin being "anti-contraception"--unless of course you define "anti-contraception" as opposing handing out condoms to middle school children in public schools.
