Bristol Palin book signing next week at Mall of America

Bristol Palin, the single mom and reality TV star whose mother is toying with a run for the White House, will sign copies of her memoir at the Mall of America, officials from the Bloomington shopping center said Monday.

Palin, 20, will appear from 6 to 8 p.m. June 29 at the mall's rotunda, bringing her back to the Twin Cites, where her family burst onto the national scene when her mother, Sarah Palin, accepted the No. 2 spot on the Republican Party's presidential ticket during the 2008 national convention in St. Paul.

Bristol Palin's book, "Not Afraid of Life: My Journey So Far," co-written with Nancy French, is scheduled for publication by William Morrow this week.

Chosen single parenthood is NEVER to be celebrated.

Choosing to keep the child is good, but the decisions that led to single parenthood and the decision to continue single parenthood go against almost every single Conservative and Christian value.

My opening question remains: had this been the child of any given democrat, what would be the response? “Let’s all go the MOA to get her book!”

I think not. It would be snide remarks our out-and-out attacks on the low morals and values of them. We regularly make “baby daddy” comments on FR all the time for single mothers.

Are we consistent?

I think that [since her situation had been made public anyway] she thinks she might be able to help other young girls/women by talking about her own experiences. I know that is the reason she gave for giving speeches to young ladies through the Candies Foundation. From what I have read, she has helped a lot of girls and given them inspiration.

>>Don’t read the Old Testament much, do you?<<

It is a very big book and has a lot of stuff about she-bears killing children and sewing salt in the soil of the losers of battles and kings sending the husbands of desired women into war to be killed. So, you might want to narrow your query.

I am not asking about my reaction, I am asking about ours.

Why not? People might be interested in her story...if not, no one will buy it. If there is interest, she will make a boatload of money. Capitalism - love it!

Most likely, but who has time to write them? I’m still to busy just living to find time to write about it.

Please don't use logic. It doesn't always go over well with those suffering PDS. In fact, they tend to become more irrational.

Afraid you’re right. I sure hope she has security with her. She is still so young and inexperienced with the ways of the world.

The OT also establishes the "You break it, you bought it" principle for unmarried sex.

Levi fell short.

Cheers!

“I’m a Sarah Palin supporter, but I just gotta wonder why Bristol is writing a book.”

To support herself and her son?

Levi johnson is writing a book due out in the Fall. This is the Palins way fo getting her story out first. It also act as a way for Gov Palin’s supporters to deflect and defend the GOv when the left tries to use bristol against Gov Palin.

Seriously, why would anyone in their right mind buy her book?

Your general belief seems to be that Bristol’s behavior reflects negatively on the Governor, Correct?

OK...Let’s back up, my FRiend.

Nowhere in this thread have I promoted this book or Bristol or Sarah...

I was just pointing out how the Strib and it’s minions are pushing this event to stir the anti-Palin pot.

The comment section is filled with anti-everything-Palin.

On Saturday, I posted this thread...http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/2736775/posts

There was a comment section attached to this story. It is now gone. Because the majority of the comments were..”GO HOME!!”

The Strib is the one with a consistency problem.
