Palin Social Notes

As the Obamas hobnob with royalty overseas, their former rivals, the Palins, are making news in Alaska.

The matriarch of the clan, Gov. Sarah, is rebuking Levi Johnston, her former son-in-law-in-waiting, for appearing on the Tyra Banks Show to reveal that he and Bristol were "pretty sure" her mother knew what they were doing under the Palin roof.

"Bristol did not even know Levi was going on the show," the Governor's statement says. "We're disappointed that Levi and his family, in a quest for fame, attention, and fortune, are engaging in flat-out lies, gross exaggeration, and even distortion of their relationship.

"Bristol's focus will remain on raising Tripp, completing her education, and advocating abstinence. It is unfortunate that Levi finds it more appealing to exploit his previous relationship with Bristol than to contribute to the well being of the child."

As unsettling as all this may be to Palin family values, there is more--the half sister of the Governor's husband Todd is being charged with felony burglary and misdemeanor criminal trespass and theft for two Wasilla break-ins.

Sarah Palin campaigned against Obama for being elitist and out of touch with ordinary Americans. It's looking more and more like she may have had a point.

Hmm, I don't quite see your point in this post. Are you saying that because Palin has what we these days call "issues," she's an ordinary American? Or are you saying that her having these family problems makes Obama a better person?

Either way, Obama has a host of family baggage to deal with, as well, not the least of which is his aunt who is living in government (er, taxpayer) subsidized housing in Boston, though she's here illegally and was directed by the courts to leave the country years ago. And let's not forget the latest mess that our illustrious VP's daughter has gotten herself into.

The trouble with pointing fingers is that when it comes to problems and family issues, we ALL have them.
