Extra, Extra: Abstinence-Only Doesn't Work, Sarah

It's been a big day for news of all types, especially for a holiday -- but my guess is that this isn't the last you'll be hearing of the Sarah Palin / Maternity story.

Path of least resistance now for Democratic surrogates? That Palin repeatedly advocated for an abstinence-only sex education curriculum in schools, and that she opposes the legal availability of contraception even among married couples.

All of which begs only two questions: First, is it worse that Sarah Palin is a hypocrite, or a self-evidently terrible choice to carry the Evangelical standard into battle; and, second, would it be just too icky to point out the irony that all of this is happening on Labor Day?
