Just kidding, blogging is good, although not ALL blogs, or bloggers are good, or worth your time. But, in general, I welcome new bloggers. And so, Bristol Palin is now blogging, as Smitty and Bob Belvedere note today. Smitty also notes that Palin is now more relevant than a certain other “blogger” you know,the one with the Massive Melons
And, instantly, becomes more important than “warmly conformly” Meghan McCain. See, Meghan: if you show some moral courage, despite life’s adversities, you too could eventually be worthy of respect.
Meghan McCain, of course might grow up enough one day to realize that she is not as “hip”as she thinks. Sure, the media fawns over her now.She says what the media wants her to say about Republicans. In other words, Meghan bashes Republicans while claiming to be one. Naturally, if Meghan ever dares to praise Conservatives, the media will turn on her. But, she is simply too naive to understand that.
As to Bristol Palin, one of her first posts covered the Left’s Selective Outrage Syndrome over women’s issues.
Dear President Obama,
You don’t know my telephone number, but I hope your staff is busy trying to find it. Ever since you called Sandra Fluke after Rush Limbaugh called her a slut, I figured I might be next. You explained to reporters you called her because you were thinking of your two daughters, Malia and Sasha. After all, you didn’t want them to think it was okay for men to treat them that way:
“One of the things I want them to do as they get older is engage in issues they care about, even ones I may not agree with them on,” you said. “I want them to be able to speak their mind in a civil and thoughtful way. And I don’t want them attacked or called horrible names because they’re being good citizens.”
And I totally agree your kids should be able to speak their minds and engage the culture. I look forward to seeing what good things Malia and Sasha end up doing with their lives.
But here’s why I’m a little surprised my phone hasn’t rung. Your $1,000,000 donor Bill Maher has said reprehensible things about my family. He’s made fun of my brother because of his Down’s Syndrome. He’s said I was “f—-d so hard a baby fell out.” (In a classy move, he did this while his producers put up the cover of my book, which tells about the forgiveness and redemption I’ve found in God after my past – very public — mistakes.)
If Maher talked about Malia and Sasha that way, you’d return his dirty money and the Secret Service would probably have to restrain you. After all, I’ve always felt you understood my plight more than most because your mom was a teenager. That’s why you stood up for me when you were campaigning against Sen. McCain and my mom — you said vicious attacks on me should be off limits.
Yet I wonder if the Presidency has changed you. Now that you’re in office, it seems you’re only willing to defend certain women. You’re only willing to take a moral stand when you know your liberal supporters will stand behind you.
Of course,that was the 2008 campaigning Obama. Trying to paint himself as a uniter,and non-partisan. That,of course,was all a facade, as I am sure Bristol Palin knows.
Good job, Bristol, and welcome
