Nobody can contest, if there is one thing that the Palin Family are experts at, it’s lingering after being defeated. Sarah went rogue, and then her daughter went ballroom. If fact, some speculate that the whole ‘Dancing With the Stars’ stint was nothing more than a political stunt. “I can see my ratings improve from my house!”
One of those speculators was fellow contestant, comedienne Margret Cho, who went so far as to post a blog on her website on November 29 entitled, “Pistol Whipped.” In her blog, Cho candidly writes , “Sarah supposedly blames Bristol harshly and openly (in the circles that I heard it from) for not winning the election and so 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 Palin to run in 2012 with America behind her all the way. Instead of being supposedly ‘handicapped’ by the presence of her teen-mom daughter, now Bristol is going to be an ‘asset’ — a celebrity beloved for her dancing.”
Now on Saturday, Bristol released, ‘CHA-CHA-CHA to CHO-CHO-CHO–HERE’S A HINT: THREE DOG NIGHT’, a 655-word (25 of them invented by her mother), retaliation letter posted to her Facebook account attacking Cho’s callow comments. After paraphrasing a few of Cho’s ideas, Bristol wrote, “Let me shamelessly steal from Saturday Night Live: ‘Really, Margaret? Really?’” She continues to say, “I will give my friend credit for creativity, and extra points for getting so many ‘facts’ wrong in so few sentences. Let me be blunt: my mom did not ‘force’ me to go on DWTS. She did not ask me either. The show approached me. I thought about it. I made the decision.” While encompassed in embroiled ramblings, Bristol concludes her letter to Cho with, “To my friend Margaret Cho, if you ever have a question, call me girlfriend. Don’t ever rely on ‘sources’ who claim to know me or my family. You will be taken every time. And we need to talk. P.S. If you want to baby-sit Tripp, I could use a night off.”
Now I couldn’t help but realize both of these women referred to each other as friends in their pestiferous online text attacks… leading me to believe they either A, have had really crappy friends over the years or B, need to scan to the ‘F’ page of the dictionary ASAP.
And if you’re having one of those uniquely vapid days where you say to yourself, “Wow… could this day get any more boring?” Well, I have just what the insipid doctor called for. Further reading if you dare:
