Cashing in on carelessness

Bristol Palin gets $15,000 to $30,000 for abstinence speeches

Let me see if I have this straight:
Irresponsible teenage girl has unprotected sex, gets pregnant and now is paid up to $30,000 a pop to stand in front of a crowd and say "Do as I say, not as I do"?
What do responsible teenage girls have to do to make that kind of money?

Levi's cashed in too.

Yes he has, Eric.
No wonder they once got along so well!

... but also, Eric, Bristol seems SO much more hypocritical than Levi.
Levi, like him or not, is just cashing in on his 15 minutes of fame.
Bristol is capitalizing on her own bad behavior by telling people not to behave like her. It boggles the mind.
If she really believes in abstinence, perhaps she should give a chunk of her speaking fees to credible abstinence-only initiatives.
