    Sarah Palin is an outspoken proponent of gun owners’ rights, but are her gun-friendly grandchildren at risk? After Bristol Palin’s fiancé, Dakota Meyer, and her baby daddy, Levi Johnston, both came under fire for posting photos of children with guns, RadarOnline.com spoke with the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence. A spokesperson warned the families that this is a “teachable moment” and they have a responsibility not to promote an “attitude of recklessness.”(Five-photo-slide-show)

    Dakota Meyer, Bristol Palin’s fiance, has defended a photo on his Instagram account that depicts him playing with an infant while a gun sits unattended on a nearby table. In the image, which was uploaded to Meyer‘s account, according to the Daily Mail, the Medal of Honor recipient holds up a child, whose name is Rowan, while a semiautomatic handgun can be seen laying on a table in the background. First highlighted by the satirical website Wonkette, the image of Meyer is roughly 16-months-old. One Instagram commenter noted the presence of the gun, prompting a response from Meyer. “Just love...

    ANCHORAGE, Alaska — Bristol Palin says she is engaged to Medal of Honor recipient Dakota Meyer. The daughter of former Alaska governor and former GOP vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin said in a blog post Saturday that Meyer came to Alaska to film the “Amazing America” reality show with her mother last year. She says Meyer is wonderful with her son Tripp. Meyer was awarded the Medal of Honor in 2011.

Meyer, 26, proposed to Palin, 24, Friday night at a Rascal Flatts concert, Palin said on her blog. "The lead singer, Gary LeVox, dedicated 'Bless the Broken Road' to us, and then Dakota got down on one knee and proposed!" she wrote. "It's amazing to see what happens when you place everything in life in God's hands." Meyer received the nation's highest military honor for braving enemy fire in 2009 to recover 36 American and Afghan troops in Afghanistan. He was the third...

    CNN anchor Carol Costello’s apology is revealing. ... Why — how? — could a CNN anchor, a woman who is herself on record saying she was once assaulted by a boyfriend — possibly have the reaction to the Bristol tape that she did? The answer is that in reality, Costello’s contempt has nothing to do with Bristol Palin. Nor, it should be noted, does it have anything to do with Sarah Palin. What this is really all about is another liberal elitist who, though not to the manor born herself, is attracted by the sense of moral, intellectual, and cultural...

The main reason for their obsession is that Palin is an unabashed conservative who is articulate and popular with millions of Americans. From the reporting about her supposed shopping spree during the 2008 race for Vice President to the continuing rumors about her marriage, the media...

CNN bleeped the numerous curse words in Palin’s statement to police, but according to the transcript posted to the website, here is what the uncensored version appears to be: “Some lady with gray hair, who wants to push my 20-year-old sister — I’m going to defend my sister, she’s 20...

He began the segment by airing a clip from Morning Joe in which host Joe Scarborough seemed to take a jab at what Stelter called Scarborough’s own network’s “saturation” of coverage over Gov.

    Wendy Davis, the long shot Democratic candidate for Texas governor, deserves all the scrutiny she is getting for blurring some facts in her compelling life story. When she got divorced, how long she lived as a single mother in a trailer, whether she was remarried and financially comfortable when she went off to Harvard Law School are not minor points in a narrative built on overcoming hardship. Politicians, whatever their party, must be held to the highest standard of truth, so it’s entirely fair to rap her for overstating the adverse conditions of her life in order to make her...

    Wendy Davis needs to remember one important thing: She is running for governor of Texas, and for now, her focus needs to be on the Democratic primary. Period. Which means she doesn’t have to answer to Rush Limbaugh or any other GOP commentator on the national stage. She is not vying for Rush’s vote, nor is she going to win over the kinds of Texas voters who listen regularly to Rush Limbaugh. So who cares what he thinks? Doubly so for Bristol Palin.

Bristol’s backstory will no doubt be familiar to most of those who tune in to her new reality show, “Life’s a Tripp,” which premiers tonight on Lifetime network. She became a single mom at 18 years old, the “highest-profile teen pregnancy of the year,” declared the National Campaign to Prevent Teen and Unplanned Pregnancy. That’s because, unlike the other 440,000 or so teen-age girls who gave birth in 2008, Bristol’s mother was not...

(This post about expecting a call from the President got almost 2,800 comments and was shared 131,000 times on this site alone… And, no, my phone didn’t ring.) Most of the comments were wonderful and supportive. (I’ve addressed some of the not-so-nice comments here.) But there’s one constant criticism I didn’t talk about: some of you insist on calling me a hypocrite. After all, I became a mother before I walked down the aisle – how can I talk about waiting until marriage for...

    Bristol Palin believes President Barack Obama should call her to apologize for the comments made about her by Bill Maher just as he called Sandra Fluke about the comments made about the law student by Rush Limbaugh, according to ABC News. Palin has blogged about how the cases are similar, but the president is not calling her since she is a Republican and Maher made a $1 million contribution to the Democrat-run super PAC. As a political scientist, I have to applaud Palin for setting up a perfect catch-22 for the president. Palin used her blog to point out how...

    You don’t know my telephone number, but I hope your staff is busy trying to find it. Ever since you called Sandra Fluke after Rush Limbaugh called her a slut, I figured I might be next. You explained to reporters you called her because you were thinking of your two daughters, Malia and Sasha. After all, you didn’t want them to think it was okay for men to treat them that way: “One of the things I want them to do as they get older is engage in issues they care about, even ones I may not agree with them...

    Hollywood Heckler Apologizes to Bristol Palin Posted By John Nolte On September 28, 2011 @ 7:40 am In Celebrity News, Culture, Politics | 110 Comments There was a lot of talk over whether or not this awful incident was set up by Bristol Palin’s production company in order to generate publicity for her upcoming reality show, but that would be hard to believe. For starters, it’s obvious the Palin family is very close and therefore it’s unimaginable Bristol would have anything to do with some jerk calling her mother a “whore.” Furthermore, if the production company did this behind Bristol’s...

    A heckler who got into a heated exchange with Bristol Palin at a Southern California bar and restaurant last week has apologized for the incident. Palin had just finished riding a mechanical bull at the Saddle Ranch & Chop House when Stephen Hanks shouted, "Do you ride Levi like that? Your mother's a whore." (snip) "Having had an opportunity to view the camera footage of the incident this past Thursday ... , I have come to the conclusion that no matter what my feelings are towards Sarah Palin, I should not have expressed them towards her daughter, Bristol Palin," Hanks...
