Yet More Alaskan Irony: Gov. Palin's Teen Mom Policy Problem

This headline, from today's washingtonpost.com, sums up Gov. Palin's predicament quite nicely:
Palin Slashed Funding for Teen Moms
As the parent of teenagers, you'd think Gov. Palin might be aware of this important social issue. But no.

Irony update:
The lead from the Post story:
Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, the Republican vice-presidential nominee who revealed Monday that her 17-year-old daughter is pregnant, earlier this year used her line-item veto to slash funding for a state program benefiting teen mothers in need of a place to live.
