McCain's Wedding Stunt

The Times of London reports that a shotgun wedding is in the works for Bristol Palin.

"Inside John McCain’s campaign the expectation is growing that there will be a popularity boosting pre-election wedding in Alaska between Bristol Palin, 17, and Levi Johnston, 18, her schoolmate and father of her baby. “It would be fantastic,” said a McCain insider. “You would have every TV camera there. The entire country would be watching. It would shut down the race for a week."

I'm not sure what's worse: Forcing people to get married fro political gain or that a shotgun wedding has the potential to increase popularity. At this point in the game, I think most people see the McCain camp as a gimmick and know that this is yet another attention-grabbing stunt.
