Palin family responds to engagement news

[cnn-photo-caption image= http://i2.cdn.turner.com/cnn/2010/images/07/14/art.s.t.palin.gi.jpg caption="The Palin family released a statement Wednesday after Bristol Palin announced her engagement."](CNN) - Sarah and Todd Palin released this statement Wednesday following the news that their daughter Bristol is now engaged to her on-again, off-again boyfriend Levi Johnston:

"Bristol, at 19, is now a young adult. As parents we obviously want what is best for our children, but Bristol is ultimately in charge of determining what is best for her and her beautiful son.

Bristol believes in redemption and forgiveness to a degree most of us struggle to put in practice in our daily lives.

We pray that, as a couple, Bristol and Levi's relationship matures into one that will allow Tripp to grow up graced with two loving parents in his life."

    As a Palin, poor Tripp's life can go no where but down. He'll grow up to be a first-rate grifter like his mom and grandmother.

    The Drama Queen is back. Must be a slow day over at Fox "News" so they asked Palin to drag Bristol, Levi and Tripp back to Center Stage. I thought we took out the White Trash. I guess they never go away.
