Skip to comments.Bristol Palin Reveals True Feelings About the McCains, 'Dancing With the Stars,
Posted on 06/21/2011 6:47:49 PM PDT by Hojczyk
In her memoir due out Friday, "Not Afraid of Life: My Journey So Far," the 20-year-old daughter of former Alaska governor/potential presidential candidate Sarah Palin reveals her true feelings about the father of her son, the daughter of her mother's 2008 running mate, and much more.
Palin writes that the first time she met the 26-year-old daughter of Sen. John McCain, she "ignored us during the entire visit." This was just before Senator McCain introduced Sarah Palin as his running mate. Palin adds that she "had a sneaking suspicion I might need to watch my back."
"Every time we saw Meghan, she seemed to be constantly checking us out, comparing my family to hers and complaining," she writes. "Oh the complaining."
Cindy McCain, the senator's wife, also rubbed the eldest Palin daughter the wrong way.
"I'd never seen people with so much Louis Vuitton luggage, so many cell phones, and so many constant helpers to do hair and makeup," Palin writes, adding that the would-be first lady looked "like a queen" and held "herself like royalty."
Palin writes that she was shocked when the senator's wife offered to be a godmother to her unborn baby: "I had just met her and I wondered why she wanted any type of guardianship over my child."
Palin also shares not-so-fond memories of her 2010 stint on "Dancing With the Stars," where she and her professional partner, Mark Ballas, finished in third place.
"I noticed some of the contestants rolled their eyes when they realized we'd survived to dance another day," she writes, adding that some of the contenders voted off "literally would not speak to us or acknowledge our presence."

That should be something to be thankful for.
I suspect this will sell like hotcakes among the crowd that lined up for Justin Bieber’s autobiography.
She seems to be figuring everything out. Good for her. The McCains are snakes, the left are snakes, and her ex-boyfriend and baby daddy is lower than a snake.
I noticed that they left out the part where she acknowledges that her actions essentially ‘were giving my family the finger’.
Well after 2 years of Meghan Mccain dishing snotty crap about the Palins, this is not surprising. Maybe even past due.
Boy, Cindy and Meghan are so classy./s
He is probably still upset that so many people refused to vote for him even with Sarah on the ticket.
I hope Sarah learned a lesson from all this.

Since when does being a godmother imply guardianship? Maybe there was no ulterior motive on Cindy McCain’s part.
I really would have hoped that Bristol left out any comments on any of the McLames’.... I think that would have shown a touch more of class......
Remember. You are reading the judgement of a unmarried, teenage mother.
That was my reaction too, initially. However, looking back on all that Mega McCain has said in the last couple of years and the things that her daddy has declined to say, I’m glad that someone is batting for Team Palin. And saying that Mrs. McCain looked like a queen and carried herself like one strikes me as being a high compliment. It’s not something that one would ever say of Shelly 0bama, for instance.
I really wish there was a “like” button, so I could let you know you are correct.
The godparents are supposed to help the child's parents raise the child in the Christian faith, and in some cases, take over the raising of the child if both parents die. It's not as usual today but that is the tradition of being a godparent.
Well, I wasn't going to say it, but you pretty much called it exactly right.
Cindy probably knew that.
