Once again the Palin family seems to bury themselves deeper into the conservative fold. Bristol took to Facebook to “set the record straight” about both Dancing With The Stars (DWTS) and her mothers involvement in getting her on the show. I strongly believe that Bristol did not write the several paragraphs that are on her Facebook page but someone in her mothers’ camp did and told Bristol to add some comments. The parts that are clearly Bristol include yet another homophobic slur directed at Margaret Cho.
Bristol wrote, “To my friend Margaret Cho, if you ever have a question, call me girlfriend. Don’t ever rely on “sources” who claim to know me or my family. You will be taken every time. And we need to talk. You say you “don’t agree with the family’s politics at all” but I say, if you understood that commonsense conservative values supports the right of individuals like you, like all of us, to live our lives with less government interference and more independence, you would embrace us faster than KD Lang at an Indigo Girls concert.”
The fact that Cho is bisexual, KD Lang is gay and the Indigo Girls are gay shows that Bristol was yet again displaying her disdain for homosexuals. What stood out in my mind was this comment, “You say you “don’t agree with the family’s politics at all but I say, if you understood that commonsense conservative values supports the right of individuals like you.” This shows me that either Bristol didn’t write it or she’s just an idiot. I’d say both. Commonsense conservative values essentially support open hatred of gays (as evidenced by her sister’s open use of the word faggot) and denial of their rights and bolster the rights of those, like Bristol, to take swipes at them.
What made this stand out, other than the gay joke, was the writing. Frankly it’s light years beyond Bristol’s intelligence and sounds more like her mother. I think that the same person who writes Sarah’s speeches wrote this one. If you think its normal for Bristol to pump out paragraphs like this one,
then I ask you to look at this video below.
You can clearly see she lacks the skills to even realize she is looking like a total fool let alone form paragraph upon paragraph of well thought out beliefs. I strongly believe that everything that the Palin daughters do is a complete stunt to keep their mother in the spotlight and I assume it is all orchestrated by Palin herself. I do wonder how they, as a family, can claim the “normal folk” status anymore with as many TV shows as they have and have been on. If TMZ is reporting on your fuckups then you’re not “normal folk.” Where I come from “normal folk” don’t have TV shows and don’t call themselves normal folk.
Bristol seems to think, however, that she didn’t cost her mother a single vote when she was running for Vice President. I think that John McCain would disagree with her as would most Americans. The fact of the matter is when you’re running for the second highest government office people want to be sure that you can handle the position. If you can’t handle your kids, who have had abstinence beaten into them, then how can you handle sneaky politicians? I truly believe that Bristol cost her mother much more than one vote.
Not surprisingly Bristol’s Facebook is being closely monitored for comments which question both the writer and those that ask about the gay joke. As with “mama grizzly’s” Facebook anyone who questions the Palin’s in a comment; has their comment removed so that it looks like everyone supports her. It’s amazing to me that people will actually support her gay bashing by saying it is her right to do so. I think racists in Alabama said the same thing in 1964 but that’s just me; right? I think it’s safe to say that Palin will run in 2012 but I also think it’s safe to say that her and her daughters will cost her another national election.
Oh and Bristol I know you offered baby sitting to Margaret Cho for your son Tripp, but I heard the hired help could use a night off since you’re never home.
