They all start out naive and starry-eyed...from Judy Garland right on down to Brittany Spears.

Both of whom were performing onstage from a very, very young age, thanks to their moms.

Just saying....

I hope she avoids the relaity show, but think it would be awesome for her to pursue some type of book deal, or middle American fashions.

I think many “regular”, “ordinary” American girls and young women can definitely identify with Bristol more than say, Lady GaGa, or some other trashy singer.

I hope she uses this new found fame wisely.

You are thinking like me girl... I said same up the thread. Chelsea’s parents would have had the baby “taken care of”. Chelsea is hardly the poster girl to hold up against Bristol.

"The media had a “hands-off” code with regard to Ms. Clinton."

Please. How many times has Chelsea Clinton posed for a paid 10-page layout in a tabloid glossy? How many times has she appeared on Oprah, or The View or Entertainment Tonight?

Whatever the circumstances of Bristol's celebrity are, she is more than a little responsible for it herself. The "media made me do it" meme wears more than a little thin.

I'll reassert my original thesis, whatever the failings of the Clintons are - and they are innumerable - Chelsea turned out to be an incredibly impressive young woman.

"Further, if Bristol’s options are to make a shit load of money and make life a little easier, or go back to Wasilla and work as a receptionist "

Really? Those are her only two options - fame whore or front desk clerk? Somehow, with multi-million dollar parents, that doesn't seem all that likely. I'm betting part-time student, full-time mother might be financially feasible.

If Sarah can get her son on The Bachelor and her daughter Willow on Temptation Island, then she might be getting ready for the White House.

What does that have to do with Sarah's image?
She's an unconventional politician, perhaps the first real politician of the 21st century. Her detractors say that she's too polarizing, but yet she shouldn't showcase her family and life as an everyday woman? You guys can't have it both ways.

You're pissed because she didn't curl up in the fetal position and bowed in the presence of the liberal media/DNC/entertainment complex like all Republicans would have done.

As long as she’s setting up a college fund, live it up, Bristol, but keep your head, and have a Plan B.

Nice to see you are so enamored of the Clintons’ parenting skills. Your comments could be enshrined at DU. Just keep on standing on that thesis, I’m sure it will serve you well. You may just have an opportunity to vote for Mrs. Clinton in 2012... sure that will delight you.

Rehabilitate her image via a reality show

The last place I would go to rehabilitate a tarnished image is a reality show. Bristol needs to lead by example - be a good mom, go back to school, find a career through hard work and initiative. When kids of celebrities get something for nothing it usually ends badly.

The MSM is salivating at the chance to tear Bristol to ribbons if she does a reality show or cashes in on her celebrity in some other way. How does that help Sarah?

"Nice to see you are so enamored of the Clintons’ parenting skills. "

Is exactly what someone might say who doesn't want to answer the very straightforward questions I asked. While Bristol has gone out of her way to put herself into every possible media opportunity out there, Clinton - and to a lessor degree the Bush twins, have done the EXACT opposite. If I had my preference about the behavior of politician's kids, it would certainly be the later, and NOT the former.

Since Chelsea didn't get pregnant that logic is hardly a home run.

I thought we at FR didn't play into trashing children of politicians for the sake of trashing

Well, this is not a reality show in the MTV sense. It is a travelogue designed to show America the beauty and potential of Alaska. Sarah's family exists as a backdrop.

Excuse me, but Bristol is a grown woman. There is nothing Governor Palin can do about it other than offer advice on making the right choices. She would have settled if her man wouldn't have walked out on her.

The MSM is salivating at the chance to tear Bristol to ribbons if she does a reality show or cashes in on her celebrity in some other way. How does that help Sarah?

The MSM is going to tear whoever wins the GOP nomination. Why are you worried about the MSM?

I could really care less about this if it weren’t for the fact that the conservative movement may miss its chance in 2012 because the GOP nominated a tabloid person for President.

My response is regarding Chelsea being brought up by previous post. How do you know whether or not Chelsea was ever pregnant? You don’t. Which is my point entirely.
As to trashing politician’s children, it looks like that is only good so long as the child is not a Palin.

I'm not worried about it, but why give them more ammunition? Sarah's celebrity got Bristol on DWTS. She should show her gratitude by staying under the radar so if Sarah does decide to run in 2012 she won't have even more baggage to deal with than she has now.

If you weren't a news junkie, glued to FR day and night, you wouldn't be exposed to a tenth of the Palin stories you're "real tired" of.

Just a suggestion - skip the Palin threads for awhile?

You must be dense...
The reality of Bristol’s pregnancy is that she did not secretly abort the child! If you cannot see this, sorry... can’t help you. You are trashing Bristol because she kept the baby and by doing so opened herself and her family up to ridicule from neanderthals so well represented on this any any other Bristol thread.

The same can be said about the Bush twins. They have quietly gone about their lives without pimping their parent's name to make a living.

The Palins are just getting started and have legions of supporters. Wouldn’t be surprised if she becomes the Rep Nom in 2012. She might even win it. Anything to get con-artist and ‘wanna-be president’ Valerie Jarret out of the White House.

Chelsea is pro-abortion, so no one really knows that she was never knocked up. She is on record as willing to get rid of her child as she’s pro abortion. Wouldn’t give it another thought. Obviously because she’s pro-abortion, you can be sure if she ever did become pregnant when she was younger, she is on record with saying she wouldn’t keep the baby as in she would have an abortion.

I’m eagerly awaiting the purge of this slime from Free Republic. The overwhelming majority of these people offer nothing to the forum besides trolling and bashing conservatives.

She is 21 and making money for she and her son. More power to her. Do you know how much random youtuber’s make with their subscriber’s? It’s important to brand yourself... not let other’s brand you... and if/when you have an audience, you have to strike when the iron is hot.

No one can fault a single Mom bringing home the bacon for she and her son. It’s called being business savy and laying the foundation for her family. She has her own bills to pay and anyone with a brain would take advantage of this type of opportunity. She needs to ignore the haters and embrace her supporters.

She’s a single Mom taking care of her family.... It’s good to see that others are interested in seeing her succeed.

How do you know that? Sarah and Todd own businesses and from watching Palin’s new reality show it seems that they want to incorporate their children like their son Track into their family business. I’m sure they would do the same for Bristol, but she has chosen a different path to do talks on teen pregnancy or advertise products. Nothing wrong with that if you don’t like it don’t buy the products or watch the shows, no ones forcing you to.

If you can't understand what Sarah is doing, then there's no need to continue further. You have your mind made up already, a mind that cannot see the new political paradigm that Sarah has created as she embodies the 1st 21st century politician.

I will vote 3rd party, as would my family.

Yeah, your vote will really make a difference.

This is the first time I've posted on a Bristol thread, although I've been a lurker on most. I decided to post now because I'm concerned that in Bristol's desire to "cash in" she could cause real headaches for Sarah in 2012 if she decides to run. Not trying to be a wet blanket, just a realist. Many people still rely on the MSM for the bulk of their news, so a misstep by Bristol now could really hurt Sarah's chances.

Chris Crocker decided to finally speak his mind on this thread
How f---ing dare anyone out there make fun of Bristol after all she has been through.!

She broke her engagement. She had one f---in kid.

Her boyfriend turned out to be a user, a cheater, and now she's going through a custody battle. All you people care about is….. readers and making money off of her.

SHE’S A HUMAN! What you don’t realize is that Bristol is making you all this money and all you do is write a bunch of crap about her.

LEAVE HER ALONE! You are lucky she even performed for you B---ARDS!

LEAVE BRISTOL ALONE!…..Please.

Speaking of professionalism, when is it professional to publicly bash someone who is going through a hard time.

Leave Bristol Alone Please!
Leave Bristol Palin alone! Right now! I mean it!

Anyone that has a problem with her you deal with me, because she is not well right now.

LEAVE HER ALONE!
