mocked by the media, and becoming so incensed that Nancy French had to post in an angry voice for her on her blog, Bristol has finally found a journalist to take her side:
Thanks, Federalist, for being more even handed than the other publications.
I mean sure the reporter is a conservative mouth piece, who graduated from an Evangelical college which mostly takes home schoolers, and has recently been in the news due to a sexual assault, but hey at least it was positive.
Or was it?
From The Federalist:
Granted, Palin isn’t the best person to be a spokesperson for an abstinence advocacy organization, as clearly she isn’t practicing what she preaches, but that doesn’t strip her of the right to have a say on the reproductive process.
The reporter, Bre Payton, then goes on to agree with many of the misstatements made by Nancy/Bristol/Sarah in that initial piece, but of course since she is a conservative religious fundamentalist she kind of has to.
However it is hard to see this is as much of an endorsement of Bristol as a conservative spokesperson if the reporter also has to include her personal failings.
I mean the point that many of the articles made while calling Palin out was that not only did she have her facts wrong, but that she herself was not the right person to deliver them for public consumption.
Bre Payton argues that Bristol has the right to have an opinion, and that is true.
However other media outlets also have the right to argue that her opinion is not worth anything based on her life choices, lack of education, and hypocrisy.
And then if you add to that the fact that Bristol is not even the one really writing these posts, well then you turn the hypocrisy up to eleven.
Currently, thanks to the efforts of Nancy French and her employer Sarah Palin, Bristol is everyone's favorite punching bag.
If she does not like that, and based on that recent post about being called an idiot she must not, then Bristol knows what she needs to do about it.
And she might want to hurry, because Wonkette is already having another field day with that idiot post.
