By the way, no one is buying the “Denali is what the Alaskans have called it for years” line. I’ve never called the mountain Denali .. and neither does anyone I know …
It’s Mt. Mckinley … It always has been and always will be to most of us…
You know there's stupid, and then there's the Palin brand of stupid.
And that did not escape the notice of various blogs and websites who are having a field day with mocking the unwed mother to be part deux.
First there's this from The Hollywood Gossip:
“The list goes on and on," she blogged "But instead he worries about renaming a mountain… The next election can't come any sooner."
We're guessing Bristol meant the next election can't come soon enough.
But we stopped questioning someone who made $300,000 as an abstinence spokesperson, only to then go ahead and get pregnant again, a long time ago.
Others focused on the fact that even Bristol's mother had referred to the mountain as Denali during her farewell address.
This from Raw Story:
It is entirely possible that Bristol wasn’t listening to her mom (teenagers, hmphh!) which makes sense because if she had ever listened to her mom before– who is pro-condom — she wouldn’t be adding on all that baby weight.
And then of course the folks at Wonkette had to have their say:
OH YEAH, BRISTOL? Maybe you were too busy getting knocked up by the Lord to know What Mountains Is Called, but your mother, your repugnant idiot mother, you know, that lady who ran Alaska for like seven minutes before she ran out to buy cigarettes and never came back, SHE KNOWS what the mountain is supposed to be called, and it’s called “Denali,” according to Alaskans.
It's kind of hard to say that yesterday's post is the dumbest thing that has ever appeared on Bristol's ghostwritten blog (After all there is SO much competition.), but it is definitely in the top five.
I am currently waiting for Nancy French to double down on the post, because as you know Palin's, and their ghostwriters, are genetically incapable of admitting a mistake.
But so far the only posts since that debacle has been one attacking Hillary, and another featuring that photo at the top of this page.
Perhaps French and Palin are conspiring to one up the Denali post with others that deny obvious truths in Alaska. Such as one claiming that climate change is a liberal plot, or that hypothermia is an imaginary condition, or perhaps that bears do NOT, in fact, shit in the woods.
At this point I cannot say I would be surprised by any of those.
