Sarah Palin is feared by Hillary Clinton? That's exactly what Bristol Palin wants everyone to believe. On Thursday, a new batch of emails from Hillary Clinton's email server went public, and Sarah Palin's name was in some of them.

Stemming from a 2011 Clinton email about a State Department decision to replace "mother" and "father" on passport applications with gender-neutral language, Hillary wrote the following.

"I’m not defending that decision, which I disagree w and knew nothing about, in front of this Congress. I could live w letting people in nontraditional families choose another descriptor so long as we retained the presumption of mother and father," Clinton wrote. ""We need to address this today or we will be facing a huge Fox-generated media storm led by [Sarah] Palin et al."

Bristol Palin took to her blog to defend Sarah Palin and slam Clinton.

"The liberals like Hillary Clinton would have you believe all sorts of lies about my mother," she wrote. "But, behind closed doors, we find out all sorts of truths, including the fact that Hillary fears my mom’s power."

Bristol Palin also feels Hillary Clinton only supports gay marriage--something Sarah Palin is against--because it is politically convenient.

"First of all, Hillary Clinton, the great tolerant one with rainbow Twitter avatars granting open-mindedness to any family formation under the sun, seems a bit more traditional in private than she does in public," she wrote. "One might call it hypocritical if it didn’t come across as so focused on self-preservation instead of any actual policy stance."

Does Hillary Clinton fear Sarah Palin?

Not likely.

While there are indeed some powers-that-be who Hillary should likely fear, Sarah Palin probably isn't one of them.

Does Bristol Palin think she holds any power in the upcoming primaries? Does she truly believe her blog posts in support of mom Sarah Palin can sway voters away from Hillary Clinton?
