Skip to comments.Bristol Palin, Keith Olbermann Trade Barbs
Posted on 12/03/2010 2:29:37 PM PST by Pinkbell
(AP) Bristol Palin is striking back against MSNBC host Keith Olbermann for dubbing her "worst person in the world."
Olbermann gave her the title on his show earlier this week, casting her as a hypocrite for appearing in a public service announcement promoting abstinence and safe sex. Palin was an unmarried teenager when she had her son, Tripp.
He likened her being an abstinence spokeswoman to saying former President George W. Bush "kept us safe, 'cept for that 9-11 thing, which doesn't count."
The 20-year-old "Dancing With the Stars" diva and daughter of former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin defended herself on Facebook Thursday. She said calling her a hypocrite is an "old canard." And she said that what Olbermann lacks in originality he makes up for with "insincere incredulity."

She talks tough but hasn't addressed some pretty important issues. Only a RINO could love that. Only a RINO would be fooled by that, after seeing the damage Bush and McCain have done to the GOP.
"You know that Colin, Condi, and the Bushes are trying to stop Palin, and are rigidly aligned with Rove, Romney, Noonan, and that entire side of the GOP, the division between the Romney/Rockefeller crowd, and the Reagan/Palin/tea party crowd is the very war that we are in yet you pretend that their fans are the fans of Palin, what is that about?"
Sure, and there's a big war between Huckabee and McCain and Romney, because they're all so different. /sarc I can't help but suspect this 'division' is contrived to keep the focus on style instead of substance, because I have yet to hear where they disagree. Instead, I hear a bunch of stupid, pointless, typical diversionary attacks from both sides.
"Is this some of that goofy Ron Paul nuttiness?"
If it's nutty to love your country and want a president who will REALLY defend the documents it was founded upon, I guess that must be it, RINO.
Shows how much you know, dumba##!
“Is that like Keith Olbermann’s Worst Person In The World award?”
Yeah, I didn’t realize that you were one of those guys.
Too bad that career politician Ron Paul has never been able to escape that safe little district in Texas, he couldn’t be a Governor or a Senator, because like any of the weirdos such as Charlie Rangel, or Ron Dellums, or whoever, they can only seek celebrity and fortune from their safe little districts.
“You started with the insults in post 93, so quit the childish crying.”
ROFLMAO—yeah, I came out with the first insults, if we ignore your reasoned commentary about me being a LIEbertarian in the post I replied to.
“Being a loseatarian, she will never answer the questions good enough for you.”
Actually, I’d be very happy to settle for her answering those questions. Hearing how she’d deal with just the first question would give me a good idea of where she really stands on federalism, whether she’s a Thomas or Scalia fan. But I know RINOs like you don’t like the idea of anyone asking questions because your primary goal is power, not restoration of limited government and the written Constitution as the highest law in the land. Sorry to intrude on your worship of the holy cow, smoker.
“Shows how much you know, dumba##!”
Oooh, more witty repartee from the RINO gallery. Please, don’t talk with your mouth full, smoker.
“Yeah, I didnt realize that you were one of those guys. Too bad that career politician Ron Paul has never been able to escape that safe little district in Texas, he couldnt be a Governor or a Senator, because like any of the weirdos such as Charlie Rangel, or Ron Dellums, or whoever, they can only seek celebrity and fortune from their safe little districts.”
Oh, right, this is where I’m supposed to go, “Waaah, you hurt Ron Paul, I’m gonna tell!” Because you’d rather distract than address my concerns that Palin hasn’t really tackled some very important issues (just like your heroes McCain and Bush, who came down on the RINO side, just like you wanted). And of course you’d rather whine about anything but my point that the Rove/Bushie/McQueeg vs. Palin “fight” hasn’t really shown well where they strongly disagree on anything.
Like I said you LIEbertarians are so amusing!
Oh, I guess you missed the point. I bet that doesn’t happen a lot to a smoker like you. But here it is again: if she answered even one question I’d posed above, it’d be better than taking on faith that she’s a conservative. Taking on faith someone who’s a Republican is a conservative hasn’t worked out well.
No there is no use to waste time on a guy that doesn’t really do politics, but instead worships at the altar of celebrity.
Ron Paul couldn’t rise above being only a congressman in electoral politics, but he sure knows how to capitalize on celebrity and live well as a perennial candidate.
So who should have Republicans voted for AL Gore or Obama?
“No there is no use to waste time on a guy that doesnt really do politics, but instead worships at the altar of celebrity. Ron Paul couldnt rise above being only a congressman in electoral politics, but he sure knows how to capitalize on celebrity and live well as a perennial candidate.”
ZZZZZZZ...sorry, did you say something? Because I could have SWORN you said something. Maybe you were droning on about Ron Paul again. That sort of diversionary droning of yours tends to make me a little drowsy because it’s so boring and irrelevant to the points I made above, that
1) Sarah Palin hasn’t made a solid statement of her views about myriad important SCOTUS decisions that have made a mockery of federalism and the Constitution and
2) anyone ignoring 1) has to be a RINO, given the history and preponderance of GOP candidates who fail to address substantive issues turning out to be RINOs.
I wouldn't want him zotted.
So it is you who gets to decide if she is a "conservative". And you can't decide it unless she answers your questions.
How amusing it is pulling your loseatarian tail! LOL
“So who should have Republicans voted for AL Gore or Obama?”
I notice you don’t deny that McQueeg and Bush were RINOs. No surprise that you don’t deny they voted like RINOs just like you wanted, either.
To answer your question, though, CONSERVATIVES should vote for CONSERVATIVES. That would NOT have been Gore or Obama in either race. Wasting a vote on a third party conservative is better than wasting a vote on any counterproductive fake conservative who’d make the party of Reagan look like unprincipled political hacks.
As opposed to you, on your knees and drooling at the mention of just the word "conservative," like any good RINO.
"How amusing it is pulling your loseatarian tail! LOL"
Not much of a surprise to see you enjoy fooling around with someone's tail, smoker.
“Ya too bad Al Gore wasnt President, this nation could have went down even faster for you.”
Oops, those darn Freudian slips of yours are showing again, smoker.
I made no error in the post.
Your loseatarians Browne, Badnarik, and Barr never had a chance. So it seems it is not the Republicans with electability issues it is the candidates you support. Keep bashing the Republicans it just shows how inept you and the rest of the loseatarians are.

Oh, I guess I’m supposed to feel bad now? Because big “L” libertarian candidates lost? I guess I’ll never get over your incredible debating skill. Or your ability to ignore reality: I’m not bashing Republicans. Just RINOs like you who would rather we take on faith that Palin is a conservative because Rove et. al. are “fighting her,” that them saying “she’s bad” proves somehow she’s good. There’s nothing in her resume that proves her bona fides as a Constitutionalist conservative. What, she’s fired a gun? She came from Alaska and had kids? John Kerry shot a gun once. Sandra Day O’Connor comes from Arizona and had kids. So? Maybe if you weren’t so good at smoking sausage you wouldn’t be so eager to swallow and then regurgitate the RINO line.
Good for Bristol. Obamaman needs taken down a notch or two.
Is anyone watching ‘Sarah Palin’s Alaska’?
I was taken by the beauty of Willow. She’s even prettier than Bristol and almost as pretty as her mother.
The best way to get zotted would be to carry grudges from thread to thread, make personal attacks for no reason to a poster that you have had no contact with since three years ago when you were pushing Romney and Mormonism on a thread, and he was against both.
This is the most bizarre case of delayed stalking that I have ever seen here at FR, on this thread I have defended Palin and her children, I don’t remember if I have mentioned Mitt Romney though, and I don’t believe that I have mentioned Mormonism on this thread, but I did on another thread today, and I sure attacked the scum bag Mitt Romney today, I guess you must have noticed those other threads and decided to do this weird stalking thing.
I don't have television, but at some point the libraries will get the DVD set, I look forward to watching it.
If I could do that, then I would probably have TV, I will have to wait for the DVD.
It's the modern way of watching many shows! I use HULU and other sources as well. iTunes also gives you an opportunity to download on your COMPUTER system.
I have a TV, I just don’t have television, I use the TV for watching DVDs from the library, but I don’t have any access to the networks, or cable, and that is on purpose.
I have done HULU on my old 15 inch, 1990s monitor and I know it is there.
I do look forward to seeing this series about Alaska.
By the way, I subscribe to Alaska magazine, and I have that issue in post 123.
I agree. I am so tired of hearing about the Palin family soap opera. If SP wants to look presidential, she will have to tell her family to shut up and start ignoring the silly comments that others make. This constant sniping is so juvenile, and that includes Barbara Bush.
Don’t we have enough real problems to deal with?
Leaders and potential leaders worldwide are certainly looking like huge soap operas. The fact is the media is driving it all. The question one needs to ask is why saturate the news with this stuff? Might be because the people eat it up.
“The question one needs to ask is why saturate the news with this stuff? Might be because the people eat it up.”
Yes, I’m afraid you are correct. *sigh*
Yep...they eat it up while the real news goes unheard and unreported...except of course as an afterthought.
So they would not call themselves a "libertarian" like you do? LOL.
BTW your screen name has the big "L".......
Im not bashing Republicans. Just RINOs
What do you think the R in RINO is for? . There is not one Republican who does not meet your RINO standards.
So there is a difference between an LP member willing to discard the entire GOP party apparatus instead of reclaiming it, and one who feels that government is best which governs least--a distinction obviously not evident to someone like you whose perspective is built around smoking whatever RINO sausage comes down the primrose lane. But to avoid the distraction you intend to provide, I'm evidently offending RINOs like you simply by asking questions regarding your latest flame, because it's somehow offensive and [shudder] libertarian ("Eek! A libertarian!") to you when someone wants to know how a candidate views the plain language of the Constitution. Only a RINO like you would think that, because only a RINO like you would want their RINO fave candidates hiding their views, knowing conservative GOP primary voters don't like RNC hacks like you.
BTW your screen name has the big 'L'......."
And? So? Your screen name has 'seller' in it, when you're a [sausage-like object, in your case, almost certainly a small one] for free.
"What do you think the R in RINO is for? . There is not one Republican who does not meet your RINO standards."
When it comes to RINOs like you, the "R" must stand for something that rhymes with 'schmetard.' Asking Republican candidates to answer questions before I vote for them, instead of remaining silent on the issues of the day, omigosh, what impossibly high standards! /sarc
Being the subject of some one’s frequent thoughts and ponderings is an odd place to be, it hadn’t occurred to me that people on the internet would think about me as an individual so often, or so intensely.
I would think that my homepage would indicate a male, or that you would have noticed that in my military postings, that I served in a Ranger company, or that you noticed my posts involving interaction with females that clearly comes from a male perspective.
I don’t know whether to be flattered, or discomfited that you think about me so often, do you share Hildy’s pro-abortion, pro-homosexual agenda, anti-social conservative, pro-Romney politics? Do you see my being conservative as a male thing?
There is no soap opera, you are an impressionable person that the media manipulates, it is only in your head.
From the source of a reality televison star. Yeah right....
...and oh yeah, didn’t hear daughter do that dancey thingy with tears and all for about 6 weeks. (snicker)
“I think her coming back at Olbermann is classless and, frankly. immature. This argument is the kind of argument we use in high school.”
And Olberman’s “worst person in the world” shtick does not even rise to your rating of a “high school” argument. It’s so 6th grade.
The McCain cow is an over-privileged, whining, imbecilic princess who instigates negative situations. Bristol is the recipient of situations created by over-privileged, whining inbecilic princesses — and moronic TV commentators.
Hildy... ya gotta think things through. The good Lord gave you a brain. Logic is your friend.
There are no “ reality television star[s]” Alaskan Governor Palin hosted an 8 part documentary/travelogue show on Alaska, her teen daughter was on DWTS. The husband is the four time winner of the 2,000 mile Tesoro Iron Dog race.
As Alaska’s most prominent family in history, and with the likelihood of producing the first female President in American history, they naturally have a presence in the media, but don’t go all giggly, and liberal over it.
Just because I support DeMint over Palin, you call me a liberal? Grow up Bucko......
LOL, you are so childish that you made up a fake subject and pretended that I had posted on it. No wonder TV occupies your mind.
TV occupying my mind? You are the one professing to know so much about Sarah’s televison career. I think you are the one that puts the boob in boob tube.
You seem to be in some kind of mood about something, perhaps you should go for a walk and come back to the internet later.
lol.... no problem , we are just two spirited freepers who support different conservatives. No harm intended
Bristol should be ashamed of herself for engaging in a battle of wits against an unarmed man.
You’ve become as welcome on the Palin threads as the worst of the stinky trolls, Hildy.
They are two young women who have traded on their family name. Oh yea, and both crave the spotlight. They are famous for doing nothing. If Bristol had just been the spokesperson for abstintinence...fine. But she made that horrible leap to reality TV. Now she is fair game. To say she’s not is disingenuous.
Welcome to the club, Hildy. ansel12 likes to dig up my old posts too.
