    Bristol Palin don't need no stinkin' GED.

    The teenage mom-turned-teen abstinence advocate earned her high school diploma last night at the Wasilla Sports Complex, with son Tripp and parents Todd and Sarah Palin in attendance.

    The 19-year-old graduated with a not unimpressive 3.497 GPA, according to People, a mere "point zero-zero-something" away from honors, says the grad.

    Prior to crossing the stage to receive her congratulatory handshake and hard-won piece of paper, Palin gave a wave to her 4-month-old son.

    "I'm so excited, I'm glad to have this part of my life over with," the teen told conservative Alaska talk radio personality and self-proclaimed "Palinista" Eddie Burke hours before her graduation, adding that her family was "all really excited" about her milestone.

    When jokingly asked whether she planned to celebrate with "a big kegger afterwards or anything like that," Palin quickly shot down the notion, saying she had a much more family-friendly celebration in mind.

    "No, the family's just gonna come over for pizza afterwards. We're very excited."

    Palin has stated that she hopes to earn a two-year business degree and pursue a career in real estate.

    Meanwhile, the governor is pursuing her own alternate career path, this time in publishing. Sarah Palin signed a deal this week to pen a memoir for HarperCollins Publishers, due out in spring 2010.
