Another Made-for-TV Teen Mom Moment From Bristol Palin

Posted on Jun 23, 2010
Bristol Palin

Here we have a prime example of entertainment education, in which important messages about a real-life social issue are embedded in a television program that’s slightly more subtle than an after-school special. Starring Bristol Palin! Sarah Palin’s oldest junior miss takes a crack at acting in this clip from “The Secret Life of the American Teenager,” airing next Monday on ABC Family.  —KA

How pathetic to see her hankering after fame; it really runs in the Palin family, like a compulsive striving. Why is she acting? Not because she’s a good actress, but because she’s Sarah Palin’s darling little girl. I hope we can just begin to ignore them; they’d disappear from the mainstream if we didn’t pay so much attention to them. The Palins are a bunch of opportunists! Of course, I’m preaching to the choir.

American teens don’t have secret lives.

They have Facebook.

Gee with all the money she is making giving speeches and now acting, why is she getting “free socialized medical care” for Tripp that was meant for the indigenous peoples of Alaska who truly need medical help? Not only can Bristol pay for this, but her parents and Levi, can well afford to. And just how much blood quantum does one need to qualify for this free socialized medical coverage in Alaska. 1%, 5%, maybe 12%, as Bristol must be using her fathers Yu’pik Eskimo heritage, which seems to be very minute at his generation before being diluted 2 more generations down the white road.

Sarah should set a good example, which she doesn’t and not allow Bristol to take advantage of this socialized medical coverage that she so wants to deny those who do need it and for those who have paid into the system and have earned the right to use the safety nets that the actual working peoples who have paid into just in case they ever need to use those services. By denying those that have paid into and do need help only to scalp the system and get free medical coverage when they can afford it on their own shows how the Palins and most republicans and tea party people feel, “I got mine, so screw you.”

And yet they still have some convinced they are good upstanding Christian people. Boy, have they got you fooled.

I wonder if anyone actually thinks that all of this Disney/ABC family garbage is actually having a positive influence on anyone, anywhere. It all seems very condescending to me, like as if the people who produce this garbage think they are the only people out there who have life experiences. They would make a perfect fit for American government considering how completely disconnected from reality they are.

Oh, wow, we should elect her mom and her because they are just sooooo hot.

IQs are dangerously low and in fact if IQ were a car, it by now without water would have crashed and burned.
