In Sarah Palin World — by which I mean not the state of Alaska but a state of mind — everything can be explained with a jab at the liberal media and a few references to Jesus. And after two weeks of silence regarding her family’s participation in a bloody brawl at a snowmobile party in Anchorage, Sarah Palin did not disappoint.
On Friday, the former governor of Alaska posted a message on her Facebook page praising her daughter Bristol as a “straight shooter” who defended the family during the brawl — which is not mentioned directly, but obviously being alluded to with this post. Keep reading »
Bristol Palin reportedly has a mean right hook. No, really: police in Anchorage, Alaska confirmed to the politics blog Wonkette that the entire Palin family were part of “20 people” involved in a brawl at a party on Saturday night for the annual Iron Dog snowmobile race.
The whole matter started, allegedly, when the elder son, Track, exchanged words with a guy who had dated his younger sister, Willow. Then Bristol allegedly started throwing punches, and apparently Daddy Todd dropped a C-bomb. But no Palin throw-down would be complete without the almost-Vice-President-of-the-United States shrieking, “Don’t you know who I am!” at the peasants. Keep reading »
Levi Johnston‘s sister, Mercede Johnston, makes her big Playboy debut this week, taking it all off for a four-page pictorial accompanied by an interview where she launches some pretty big allegation grenades against Sarah Palin and her family. And these are in addition to the charge Bristol Palin allegedly got pregnant on purpose. After the jump, we rate the probable likelihood of Mercede’s latest claims about the Palin clan. If I were Mercede, I wouldn’t say such things about a family of sharp shooters. Keep reading »
Gotta love a bride who wears blue jeans and pearls on her wedding day, right? Of course I am referring to Britta Hanson, 21, the new wife of Track Palin. Last Friday, we saw Britta and Track’s wedding photos. Today, we get lots more information on the newest member of the Palin clan. Not only is Britta the daughter of a preacher man—her dad is the pastor at Wasilla’s Good Shepherd Lutheran Church—she’s also tight with several other members of the Palin family. Last year, Bristol Palin called her “roomie”—the two shared a condo in Anchorage when Bristol was “scared to live by myself.” And Britta also worked for Sarah—she was the executive secretary at Alaska’s office of the governor from 2008 through this year.
Plus, Britta sounds like one of those girls who is good at everything. Keep reading »
Ladies, our hopes for marrying into the Palin family have been dashed! (Heterosexually, at least.) Track Palin, 22, the eldest Palin child, recently married his high school sweetheart, Britta Hanson, in a small ceremony. Track Palin is an Army Reservist who was deployed for a year in Iraq; he plans to study at the University of Alaska, where his new wife is a nursing student. The happy couple wed in Hatcher Pass, Alaska, a skiing, snowboarding and hiking locale. The happy couple will hold a bigger ceremony this winter at Alaska’s Alyeska Ski Resort, when they said friends and family from the lower 48 states will be able to join them. (Hmm, could there be another Palin grandkid on the way?) What I find most interesting about this photo is that the bride appears to have wed in jeans and a white blazer, which is the low-key way I want to do it. In fact, it looks like everyone wore super-casual jeans or khakis. Maybe these Palins are onto something… [People] Keep reading »
