Sarah Palin has been getting a lot of publicity with her new reality show. It seems like Sarah is always in the news for some reason or another. However, let’s give some attention to another Palin. You think Sarah is bad. How about focusing on one of her kids who may well give Sarah a run for her money when it comes to idiocy.
No, not her disabled kid. That, of course, is way to easy. Also, it’s too mean according to powerful Sarah. She can attack others but leave her kid alone. In other words, she can fire darts at others but can’t take being hit by them.
It is hard to not focus on Sarah. You could easily write a book on how dumb she is. But let’s try hard not to look at her. Instead, look at her daughter, Bristol.
Bristol Palin has obviously taken a lot of traits from her mother. See, it is hard not to focus on the great mother that is Sarah.
Back to Bristol though. She received a lot of media buzz with her appearance on “Dancing With The Stars.” She even got more attention because of her whole abstinence advocacy. Right, you read that correctly. The young girl who has a kid is speaking against other teens having kids.
Some may say it is a noble cause. However, she is a huge hypocrite. Remember, Republicans always scream out for abstinence. They don’t want kids learning about safe-sex habits because they say that encourages sexual activity. They don’t want young kids having any kind of sex. Not just that, they basically deny the existence of it.
Yet, Bristol became pregnant. Maybe if she had learned about safe-sex techniques she wouldn’t have had a kid. If she never had the kid, do you think she would have admitted to having sex? Because of her own pregnancy, she had to admit that she did partake in sexual activities.
Still, the Palin’s played it off as best they could. Remember, they said that they still wouldn’t have an abortion. Somehow, this made them heroic. They used it as a positive. If anybody else was pregnant at such a young age, they would have been considered much worse.
Maybe they would have been on with Maury Povich and mocked and booed by the public. That leads to an interesting point on the Palin’s in general. It’s almost like they are trying to tell the residents of the country not to vote for them or like them but they are instead loved more and more.
Think about it. How many political families do all these stupid things and go on all these reality shows? Yet, this family acts like they are with Jerry Springer. Even Kevin Federline, who has no political aspirations, gets ridiculed by everybody. He is not running for political office (and neither are his relatives) so why is he held to a higher standard than this family?
Back to Bristol. How can she say that she is an advocate for abstinence when she has her own kid? You might say that she has learned her lessons and doesn’t want others to go through what she has. This is not a good argument as the Republicans always promote abstinence. So Bristol already broke their rule.
More importantly, her whole relationship with Levi Johnston was reminiscent of other broken celebrity relationships that Sarah is so against. How did she not communicate better with her daughter or vice versa? Was Bristol hiding behind her angelic reputation? Maybe she is a fake or maybe she really is that stupid. Either way, it doesn’t speak well to her current role as advocate.
You also have to think about how Bristol is currently rehabbing her image. She is a true celebrity. She knows how to work the public. Her relationship with Johnston should remind you of Federline and Britney Spears. They all seem the same but it also is similar in the way they play the media. First, Federline is the bad guy. Then he’s the great father. It is very similar to Palin and Johnston and how they work their reputation.
Again, the difference is that most celebrities are not running for political office. Bristol is just a complete joke who is following in her mother’s shoes. Of course, the great publicity is what they want in order to achieve their goals.
With those goals, money is sure to be involved. That is probably one of the biggest reasons Bristol is such an advocate. Why should her mistake get her riches? Have a teenager who doesn’t have a baby get endorsements. They are, in fact, practicing what Bristol just preaches. It wouldn’t be hard to find them either. Think about it. Not many teenagers have kids of their own. And if they do, they are scorned. They are certainly not public figure advocates for abstinence.
