Now that Bristol Palin is officially 18 (as of October 18), Republican V.P. candidate Sarah Palin says she's hoping Bristol and fiancé Levi Johnston – who are expecting a baby in December – will tie the knot before next summer.

"Hopefully before that," Sarah Palin told People.

"That's what we wanted her to wait for: to turn 18, and a decision on her own about how she's going to go forward, her and Levi, at this point."

Taking a break between campaign speeches in New Hampshire, Sarah and husband, Todd Palin, both 44, spoke about Bristol, Tina Fey and sex ed.

They also answered questions about politics, life with five kids – ages 6 months to 19 years – and what's next for the Alaska governor, win or lose:

Q: Do you two ever look at each other and just go, This is insane?

Sarah Palin: I haven't had time to yet.

Q: With the kids traveling, how do they keep up with school?

Sarah Palin: They've been going back and forth and bringing schoolwork with them. Yeah. It's workin'. With our help and Grandma's and Grandpa's help.

Q: Your crowds are adoring but the criticism is sometimes tough. Todd, Elizabeth in Nashville asks, Is it hard not to stick up for Sarah?

Todd Palin: When you get into this business, it's expected. I do [feel protective] but it's just entertainment.

Sarah Palin: They take their shots; that's some people's entertainment.

Bristol Palin, the pregnant teenage daughter of Republican V.P. candidate Sarah Palin, and her boyfriend, Levi Johnston, are considering a summer wedding.

Bristol, 17, and Levi, 18, haven't set a date yet, according to the boy's mom, Sherry Johnston. They announced their engagement and pregnancy last month.

You Da Palin!

The two "have been considering getting married next summer, but that could change," she said during a short interview outside her Wasilla home.

Meanwhile, the London Times, quoting an unnamed source, claims that "expectation is growing" inside the John McCain campaign that there may be a "popularity boosting pre-election wedding in Alaska." Don't bet on it, though.

Not long after Levi was finished thrusting into Bristol Palin, the couple was thrust into the national spotlight after her mother, the first-term Governor of Alaska, was unexpectedly selected as John McCain's running mate in late August.

No, not personally - but Lynne Spears is miffed that people vilified pregnant Jamie Lynn Spears, then praised the knocked up Bristol Palin.

This wasn't just the hypocritical reaction of idiots like Bill O'Reilly, either. Most of the general public had a "totally different reaction" to the teen pregnancies of Jamie Lynn and Bristol, Lynne said in an interview with Newsweek.

Ballas and Palin

"It's as if [Sarah Palin] became celebrated," Lynne said.

"I mean, the mother was celebrated for this... Every woman in the world applauded her strength and convictions and poor Jamie Lynn, you saw how she was crucified - everybody did, firsthand. I just feel like it's been a very hypocritical situation."

We'd have to agree.

In December, Jamie Lynn Spears, then 16, announced her pregnancy. She got engaged to Casey Aldridge and gave birth to daughter Maddie Briann in June at age 17.

In August, Sarah Palin, the Alaska Governor and Republican V.P. candidate, revealed that her 17-year-old daughter, Bristol Palin, is expecting and engaged to Levi Johnston.

"Do I promote teen sex? Of course not," Lynne said. "Do I promote teen pregnancy? Of course not. But when it happens, you deal with it and you do the best you can do."

Leave it to the UK's News of the World - also known as the super-trustworthy English equivalent of In Touch Weekly - to make up dig up probably the funniest batch of lies gossip yet about America's sweetheart pregnant teen Bristol Palin.

According to the publication, Levi Johnston, Bristol Palin's baby-daddy, was in a three-year relationship with her best friend, Lanesia Garcia, when he and Bristol - Republican V.P. candidate Sarah Palin's daughter - started hooking up.

Bristol then started pressuring Lanesia to break up with Levi Johnston when rumors started flying that he was cheating on her with other girls.

Lanesia Garcia said she was devastated to find out through another friend that Bristol Palin - her friend since the age of six - was one of them:

"I didn't believe it, I never dreamt she was capable of doing that to me. But when I called her she just said, 'I'm so sorry, I couldn't help it. Levi and I are together now and I think he's the man for me.' I put the phone down and have not talked to her since. I was distraught for a year - I missed Bristol desperately but also Sarah, who was like a second mom to me. Neither of them have tried to contact me, though - which says something about how ruthless they can be. The phrase Sarah used comparing herself to a lipstick-wearing pit bull is spot on."

Yeah, Lanesia Garcia totally produced this quote. Lies. All of it. Doesn't make it any less funny or entertaining, but come on, News of the World.

At least try to make it semi-believable next time?

For all the criticism the media and blog world (this celebrity gossip site included) has endured for supposedly biased coverage of Gov. Sarah Palin and pregnant daughter Bristol, some of her biggest fans may be a tad hypocritical, as well.

Case in point: Bill O'Reilly.

Here's what the Fox News personality had to say about Bristol Palin ...

"Millions of families are dealing with teen pregnancy, and as long as society doesn't have to support the mother, father or baby, it is a personal matter. Some Americans will judge Governor Palin and her family, and she will have a hard time running for vice president if there is much more chaos. For the sake of her and her family, we hope things calm down. This country needs a vibrant policy debate, not a soap opera."

This would be a fair assessment if it weren't only because he likes Palin's politics. Here's what he said last year about pregnant Jamie Lynn Spears:

"On the pinhead front, 16-year-old Jamie Lynn Spears is pregnant. The sister of Britney says she is shocked. I bet. Now most teens are pinheads in some ways. But here the blame falls primarily on the parents of the girl, who obviously have little control over her or even over Britney Spears. Look at the way she behaves. And by the way, the mother, Lynne Spears, has reportedly already sold pictures of the upcoming baby of her 16-year-old for a million bucks. Incredible pinhead."

No one is calling Sarah Palin Lynne Spears. But does this mean Bristol is a pinhead? And by this logic, shouldn't he simply leave Jamie Lynn alone?

Makes you think.

The embattled Levi Johnston cleans up nice - and while he hasn't married Bristol Palin yet, he's already got a tattoo of her name inked on his ring finger!

Their hands were never un-clasped as they watched her mom, Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, deliver a standout speech at the Republican National Convention.

The Palins have been under the gun ever since she was chosen as John McCain's running mate last Friday, but Sarah responded in kind Wednesday night.

Check out Levi Johnston's "Bristol" tattoo ...

Meghan McCain feels for Bristol Palin.

Not only is she expecting her first child at a very early age in the public spotlight, but "it's a rough go being the son or daughter of a politician," John McCain's daughter, 24, writes on her official site, the McCain Blogette.

Having been on "political stages and in campaigns since before I could walk or talk," Meghan McCain continues, "it is often difficult to establish your identity and independence as the son or daughter of a politician."

The younger McCain recalls how when she was 14, a reporter asked her father "about me having a hypothetical abortion, had I been pregnant at 14."

Bristol Palin, 17, is pregnant with boyfriend Levi Johnston's child. Mom Sarah Palin, the Governor of Alaska, is McCain's running mate.

After a week of controversy, Sarah Palin addresses the Republican National Convention tonight. No matter what happens to the McCain-Palin ticket in this presidential election, Meghan McCain has Bristol Palin's back.

"I have not known Bristol Palin long, but there is a kinship I feel to her as I do other political daughters such as Chelsea Clinton, Jenna and Barbara Bush and Mary Cheney. You can't fully understand it unless you have lived it. So I wanted to let it be known that I support Bristol and the entire Palin family."

The Hollywood Gossip would like to offer sincere apologies for mistakenly posting pictures of what we believed to be Bristol Palin Tuesday.

Several of our most trusted news sources erred on these photos as well. We regret the mistake and are sorry for any offense it caused anyone.

Bristol Palin Shakes It

The photos of guns, booze and girl-on-girl action were actually of Mercedes Johnston, the sister of Bristol's boyfriend, Levi Johnston.

Bristol Palin may not be in it, but this Levi Johnston pic remains a classic.

What it says about Levi Johnston that he knocks up a girl who looks a bit like his twin sis is a discussion for another time. For now, we're very sorry, and invite you to view our updated gallery of Bristol Palin pictures that are actually her.

Bristol Palin Quotes

Teenagers need to prevent pregnancy to begin with -- this isn't ideal. But I'm fortunate to have a supportive family, which is dealing with this together.

Bristol Palin

Tripp is so perfectly precious; we love him with all our hearts. I can't imagine life without him now.
