Palin: Bristol Keeps Getting Pregnant Because God Gives Her '3rd, 4th And 5th Chances'

Former Republican vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin explained that her daughter had gotten pregnant out of wedlock for the second time because God gave people second, third and fourth chances not to sin.

Former Republican vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin explained that her daughter had gotten pregnant out of wedlock for the second time because God gave people second, third and fourth chances not to sin.

"Bristol is pregnant again," CBS correspondent Tracy Smith pointed out to Palin during a recent trip to Wasilla. "That can't be how you saw this playing out, unmarried and pregnant again."

"Heck, no!" the former Alaska governor insisted. "Because being a single mom is -- oh, my goodness. My heart goes out to the single parents. But my enormous admiration for what they're able to accomplish doing double duty. And I watch Bristol do double duty all the time with her little boy, Tripp."

"I can't wait for about 45 more days and I'm going to have a little baby granddaughter," Palin beamed. "And I'm happy about it."

"Of course, there are those who say, 'Come on, this goes against everything you stand for,'" Smith observed.

"Well, the cool thing about putting your faith in God," Palin replied in a folksy voice, "is he certainly is a God of second chances and third and fourth and fifth chances."

Palin also reflected back on her loss in the 2008 presidential election, and noted that it was a matter of "semantics" as to whether or not she lost or came in second place.

"Well it takes a team to win, so it takes a team to lose. I was part of a team that came in second... out of two," she opined.

"So yeah, semantics! Okay, words matter. You either win or you lose. We lost. That makes you not a winner -- at that time."
