Keeping Up With the Palins

I’ve tried to resist commenting on the Palin’s snowbilly-style drunken fistfight, but Bristol has made me break my vow of silence with this comment:

Bristol went on to berate the media for ignoring a scandal involving the “real Vice President’s kid” — a reference to one of Joe Biden’s sons, who was recently discharged from the U.S. Navy Reserve for failing a drug test.

Bristol also said that if Chelsea Clinton had been in her shoes, the media would have “held her up as some feminist hero.”

Bristol is upset because, to hear her tell it, she was either held down on the ground (current version) or dragged across the ground by a man who called her a “cunt” and a “slut” (version she told the cops).

I don’t want to make light of the violence Bristol encountered. But what happened to her is in the context of a brawl, about which her brother said, to the police, that one of the participants in the fight is “a little pussy” and “basically a gay guy, but he’s not” (whatever that means). Also, Track could “beat the shit outta them”, if it was one-on-one. (Lord knows we’ve all been there.) In other words, it may be possible that Track’s big fucking mouth wrote a check that he and his family’s fists couldn’t cash, and everybody got their asses kicked, but that’s just conjecture. Even so, I would like to point out that Bristol’s comparison of herself to Chelsea Clinton is a bit of a reach, not the least because I doubt that Chelsea has ever told a police officer not to take a picture of her face because there’s nothing on it but “beer and makeup”.

Anyway, my point here isn’t to re-litigate the Thrilla In Wasilla, nor even to point and laugh. Rather, I just want to note that the reason “Sarah Palin’s Alaska” was such a failure is because it was a hoity-toity horseshit fairytale that Sarah cobbled together, and people could smell it. If Sarah really wants to cash in, and we all know she does, she could cut the bullshit and dish some real reality TV. Show the beat-down that happens when that numbskull Track gets his drink on and tries to start something in a bar. Give us the backstory of a good old-fashioned, hold-my-gold catfight between Willow, Bristol and some other trashy Wasillians. And make sure there’s at least 5-10 minutes of Sarah yelling at everyone in each episode. That show would run for years, and it pays a lot better than skimming from some grifter PAC.

    Frankly, I hear a lot of talk from both parties on the airwaves right now that’s to the left of where the Democrats actually govern on economics. The Dems Michigan senate nominee is getting attacked just for being in some way associated with Wall Street. The Obama administration has not in any way governed or appointed as if they believe that kind of rhetoric or it’s implications, but someone armed with the above data thinks it’s an effective pitch against Gary Peters.

    So apparently this is someone who calls themself a Democrat yet has paid absolutely no attention to anything Obama has said or done in the last 3 years. He campaigned on the fucking minimum wage. He appointed Yellen, not Summers (which I credit the “serious people” engaged upper middle class sorts still pissed at Summers for basically, well, everything, for making that seat too hot for that asshole so that he publicly “voluntarily” withdrew his name) and boy is Wall Street pissed! He staffed the fucking NLRB at great risk to his presidency (and if you don’t believe that’s true, I have some great investments in toll bridge revenue streams to discuss with a future-thinking go getter like yourself).

    Obama DID get the motherfucking Occupy memo … he signed a $10.10 wage exec order and is pushing for a $10.10 national wage. This is a winning issue for Democrats.

    Blame the guy for the missteps he actually made, not for the total corporate media blackout of the stuff he says and does.

    When the standard bearer of the Liberal Entertainment Complex (who ever that is) calls Bristol a dog on the public airways to the delight of his / her audience then she can complain.

    The conundrum is that the minute the most popular liberal standard bearer says something illiberal, he (or she) ceases to become the most popular liberal standard bearer or even a standard bearer at all.

    People who don’t get this, like Bill Maher, are perpetually confused as to why they don’t get any credit for the, like, millions of issues they don’t fail-donkey on.

    Bristol may or may not be able to kick my ass, but I wouldn’t want to find out. The owner of the house who challenged her to take her best shots- and she took several and wanted to keep going- sounds like a guy with a good sense of humor. He could be a consultant for Barr’s show.

    Jeez, Bristol – would you like some cheese to go with that whine? It’s not like “the media” have let Hunter Biden skate on his coke problems (I saw it on two Network news blurbs when he was canned) – maybe if he’d gotten coked up and clocked some guy in a bar brawl it would be more to her liking (or something she could relate to)??

Upon careful consideration I decided she just meant there were no owies on her face that needed to be photographed after her terrible ordeal. (Unlike the bloody knees and ass under/next to the camo chiffon skirt [mygodthatisathing] and thong.)

    Seriously, there were at least seven people present who told the cops she started punching this guy and he took it for minutes before finally shoving her away. No one but the Palins says anything different. Her ghostwritten-by-a-not-much-brighter-PR-person statement is for simultaneously soothing and re-riling up the diehard Palin fans who will never hear any reality-based version, thanks to the lack of commenting ability on her blog, the instantly moderated comments on her FB page, etc. At this point I think the Palin griftmobile has given up on all activities other than milking the true believers in the common cult of victimhood.

    I don’t disagree. But at what point does she walk away from the grift trough and do something for herself? Finish a single community college course or hold a non-glamorous job for more than a couple of weeks? Move out of the family house of horrors? Stop taking the path of least resistance to obtaining money via two (?) reality shows, multiple appearances on dance competition shows and autobiographies detailing her existence so far?

    Even all that could be put down to not knowing any better/not ever having been around anyone who did, but the “I’ve tried to keep a low profile and stay out of the public spotlight” line in her latest diatribe is just gross. I strongly suspect she actually believes it.

    Besides the obvious class overtones, the fact that the teabagger base is ultimately more middle class suburbanites and country clubbers than poor and working class people kind of holds me at arms’ length from the easy association of “white trash” with the kind of scum the Palins appeal to. (Even among white Southerners, poorer demographics are less reliably Republican than their better off brethren).

    Same with Duck Dynasty. I’ve never felt like they or the Palins are tailoring their image towards “rednecks,” so much as towards the kind of suburban TV viewers who fantasize about that “rugged American” lifestyle and how cool it is… without having lived it (which is why they end up coming off like a parody).

    When Sarah Palin did her wolf hunting stunt, I read quite a few comments saying “I’m a hunter and that is not how you hold a gun… and that’s not how you skin a wolf… OH GOD JUST STOP EMBARRASSING YOURSELF ALREADY!” But it’s not them she was trying to appeal to.

Trash is the white guy in the expensive house who looks down on black people while one of his sons is facing charges for drug dealing, illegal weapon possession and manslaughter (because he accidentally shot his best friend in the head while drunk and saying “hey check out my new gun!”), and the other son is charged with being a bookie and “enforcer” for an organized crime family because hey, beating people with bats pays better than a real fucking job. That’s trash.

    Yep. They’re appealing to the suburbanites and exurbanites who want to think of themselves as salt-of-the-earth working-class people without having to deal with all of that uncomfortable poverty and physically demanding work. They would have no idea what to say to an actual working-class guy who worked in a factory or at a construction site.

    I think this is also everything you need to know about the NRA and its groupies, by the way.

    ACTUAL rugged frontier dwelling Americans didn’t mind gun regulations: there were plenty of Old West towns living under gun laws that could’ve been drafted by the writers of “MacGyver.” It’s only nowadays, among modern Americans with running water and air conditioning who’ve never been closer to that Wild West than a John Wayne movie, that guns are treated as a fetish rather than a tool and that the NRA can thrive.

    I like Track, or Trash or whatever the fuck his name is. He and his dad are the perfect guys to have standing by you in a bar fight. They start punching and you slip out the back door quietly, then make up a story the next day about the “fucken cops” and how they almost caught you when they came in during the fight, but you ran and ditched ’em.

    They will NEVER know the difference.

    I initially read that as “hold my goldfish” then the mind spun off to figuring out why Bristol is walking around with I would hope, is a bowl of water with a goldfish in it, it took about 10 seconds for the reality matrix to reimpose itself.

    It’s amazing how the speculating safeties just fly off when the the brainpan cognitizates “Palin”

    Nothing says responsible motherhood like getting falling down drunk while toting your 5 year old around.

    I wonder where she learned those parenting skills

    Palins vs, The Jersey Shore…..someone has to make this happen
    after all, it is just a question of $$$$$$

    @kindness: And I don’t disagree. I just resent the implication that Honey Boo Boo is some sort of low bar. Not that low.

    The Palins have trouble clearing the lowest bars … let’s just say they’re contenders on the limbo and not the pole vault.

    @Jim, Foolish Literalist: Lol, Cornel West on Hannity. I guess I stand corrected and everything that everyone said about him is right.

    To be fair to Bristol, vis a vis Hunter, Hunter was not raised in a toxic evangelical/charismatic hate church where it’s important to have a “good witness”. If you’re Catholic and you fuck up you get denied communion for a while and have to redeem yourself (and because the clergy are hateful fuckers, some things, like omg being a woman and getting divorced and not going through the clergy’s hoops and then being a slutty mcslutsauce who gets remarried, will permanently keep you out of their good graces … although you can always change parishes and not tell anybody, because they don’t find it in their interests to actually officially excommunicate people very often). But if you belong to Assemblies of Trauma the more fucked up shit you did with more other equally fucked up people, the more of a platform/attention/status you get within that world, hence the abstinence tour/grift. This is literally how she has been raised by her mother and her church. Though she doesn’t show much signs of having the discernment or intelligence to rise above.

    Never watched Jersey Shore and only know the ones who end up getting media attention, but I did see a link to a JWow post (I assume on her blog, don’t remember). She responded to one of Bristol’s “pro-family” (aka anti-gay) announcements by basically calling Bristol a hateful bigot.

    I don’t want to make light of the violence Bristol encountered.

    She’s the only one who told that story. Everyone else in the police report told a different story, where she was the aggressor.

    @shortstop: A couple of weeks ago, Sarah Palin weighed in on her Facebook page praising her daughter for being a “straight shooter” and defending her family – presumably, in approval of her popping the guy in the chops a half a dozen times.

    So now Bristol comes out and says she didn’t hit anyone?

    What’s she doing, making a liar out of her mom?
