Bristol Palin usually keeps a low profile. After her turn on Dancing with the Stars, the daughter of half-term Alaska governor Sarah Palin has managed to stay out of the spotlight.
Then came a week from hell for Bristol. First was the alleged “drunken brawl” at a party that she reportedly attended. Anchorage Police reported that there was a fight with about 20 people involved at a birthday party in Anchorage. Police and attendees said the Palin clan was there.
Eyewitnesses said that Sarah Palin’s son Track started a fight with an ex-boyfriend of Bristol. The host of the party has confirmed reports that Bristol Palin also punched him several times. Reports are that this was happening while her mother repeatedly screamed out, “Do you know who I am?!”
The very next day, Bristol arrived home to find a stalker waiting in her driveway. Police arrested the man after finding his sweatshirt and some marijuana on Bristol’s deck.
It was with these events, and the copious news coverage of them, as the backdrop that Sarah Palin took to her Facebook page to praise her daughter.
I love my Bristol! My straight-shooter is one of the strongest young women you’ll ever meet. I have to say this as a proud mama: right up there with their work ethic and heart for those less fortunate, my kids’ defense of family makes my heart soar! As you can imagine, they and my extended family have experienced so many things (liberal media-driven) that may have crushed others without a strong foundation of faith, and I’m thankful for our friends’ prayer shield that surrounds them, allowing faith to remain their anchor. Thank you, prayer warriors! I love you!
It is unclear if Sarah Palin’s line about “my kids’ defense of family” is referencing Bristol, or if perhaps she was referring to Track at the birthday party brawl. She did use the plural possessive, indicating more than one of her children were being referenced.
Sarah Palin then linked to a short-form blog post that Bristol had written about the rumors of her parents’ divorce. Evidently, any rumors of a Palin divorce are being denied.
