Bristol Palin a Pawn in Mom Sarah's Lamesteam Media War

Bristol Palin a Pawn in Mom Sarah's Lamesteam Media War 1Bristol Palin lashed out on her Facebook page at one of mom Sarah Palin’s favorite targets, the “lamestream media.” She specifically zeroed in on MSNBC fathead Keith Olbermann. But is it really Bristol talking?

In a screed titled “Mr. Olbermann—Sorry We Can’t All Be As Perfect As You,” Palin takes the talking head to task for supposedly attacking her efforts on behalf of abstinence education.

Among other things, Bristol is an ambassador for the Candies Foundation, which promotes teen pregnancy awareness and prevention education.

First, did she really write this? Bristol bounced around three high schools before graduating from Wasilla High School in 2009.

Her only accomplishment of note was becoming an unwed, teen mother at the age of 18 a year before she graduated.

Yet, the Facebook posting is well written and uses a lot of two-dollar words like “canard” and “incredulity.”

It’s hard to believe Bristol had time to polish her writing skills between fornicating and getting pregnant in high school. She never went to college.

Yet, she writes: “Accusing me of hypocrisy is, by now, an old canard.”

“What Mr. Olbermann lacks in originality he makes up for with insincere incredulity.”

Wait, did she really mean that? Incredulity means being incredulous or disbelieving.

Does insincere incredulity mean Olbermann doesn’t really mean what he says. Or, does she mean his disbelief is not real?

Did she not take the SAT? Lack of originality has no association with incredulity, let alone “insincere incredulity.”

Internet speculation is centering on Sarah Palin ghost writer Rebecca Mansour as the author of the piece.

If so, she needs to take a refresher course.

Palin infamously tried to use her daughter as a prop during the 2008 presidential campaign.

But Bristol’s awkward presence at the GOP National Convention, backfired, and she became a symbol of her mom’s irresponsible parenting and family values hypocrisy.

Bristol did a lot to repair her image on her recent turn on “Dancing With the Stars.” She showed pluck and determination against far more skilled contestants.

But she ultimately became a polarizing force after her mom’s rabid followers advanced her to the finals, well beyond her capabilities and over far more deserving dancers.

Afterward, comedian Margaret Cho, another DWTS contestant said on her blog that Sarah forced her daughter to go on the show.

“She told Bristol she ‘owed’ it to her to do DWTS so that ‘America would fall in love with her again’ and make it possible for Sarah to run in 2012,” Cho wrote on her blog.

Sarah Palin’s spotlight hogging on the show didn’t help. But apparently none of that matters.

Bristol is destined to be nothing more than a pawn to further her mother’s political ambitions and family values agenda. Greek tragedy, anyone?
