Raw, adjective: 6. ignorant, inexperienced, or untrained: a raw recruit.

It's a rare day that you'll see me link to Fox News, but this one just can't be missed.

Bristol Palin did her first-ever interview tonight with Greta Van Susteren, and it's pretty heartbreakingly sad.  The first thing you notice is that she's so shy that she can hardly make eye contact with Greta.  Then she opens her mouth, and you realize: holy shit - this is just a kid from the sticks who got herself in a pickle, and now she doesn't know what the hell to do about it.

It's the most painful 12 minutes you've ever watched, but you'll want to hang on through the end, past the descriptions of Piper helping with diapers and Grandma Sarah telling Bristol and Levi they'd have to "figure out a gameplan" and Bristol herself being so afraid to announce her pregnancy to her parents that she made her best friend do it.  No, you'll want to stick around till the last minute or so, when Bristol admits that abstinence is "unrealistic" and repeats for the third time that if she could, she'd have waited 10 years to have this kid.  Governor Sarah must've been squirming - according to Bristol, she didn't tell her mother she was doing the interview until the day before.
