As you may have heard through some of our pathetic news media outlets (like the one Governor Palin called out just a few weeks ago), there’s been some nasty gossip out there surrounding the personal lives of the Palin family. We haven’t remarked on it here because we have always felt that Governor Palin’s personal life should never be up for speculation (aside from what she shares). It holds no significance to her record as a reformer or to her strong commonsense positions she has championed for these last few years.
These careless members of the news media decided to run with it out of sheer sensationalism without waiting for facts and using known Palin-deranged sources to reference it. As a result, there’s been some expected dissing of the Palins including their son, Track.
To that, I’d simply remind those that Track Palin went overseas to give all he had to protect people and their opinions in this great country, even the ones who go out of their way to embellish details meant to slander his entire family. Of course, that fact alone makes him the better man. As Governor Palin has said, “what doesn’t kill us makes us stronger,” and we know that just like similar attacks of the past hurled at the Palins, this one too is only meant to distract and will only strengthen them for truly significant fights down the road for our country.
As for the details, Scott Conroy has a piece up at Real Clear Politics that sets the record straight on the gossip in question which is sure to send all liberals into a rage:
[W]ith The Washington Post, “Good Morning America,” the New York Times and dozens of other media outlets all filing reports on the incident over the last few days, it’s clear that there’s a high level of interest in the events that transpired on that regrettable night in Anchorage.
According to previously published eyewitness reports, the fracas began when Track Palin, the former governor’s adult son, confronted a former boyfriend of his 20-year-old sister, Willow.
But according to the Palin family’s version of events, the instigator was actually the former boyfriend.
The initial tussle occurred, the source said, after the young man in question “tried to get in” to the Hummer limousine after he’d engaged in some unspecified “questionable behavior.”
Track Palin soon found himself struggling to fend off four men who had “piled on him,” according to the source.
Todd Palin then inserted himself into the brawl, which left the former “First Dude” of Alaska bleeding.
Next, it was Sarah Palin’s turn to leave her own mark on the most talked about rumble in Anchorage since the 1964 earthquake.
On the previous night, she had been in Houston to speak at a fundraiser benefiting the Mighty Oaks Warrior Foundation, which helps wounded veterans. That event apparently was fresh on Palin’s mind when she engaged in the tumult on Saturday night.
According to the source, as her husband and son were trading blows with their adversaries, Palin was yelling (in reference to her son), “Don’t you know who he is? He’s a vet!”
This rendition of her words differs slightly but significantly from a previous report, which had Palin shouting, “Don’t you know who I am?”
Over the years, Sarah Palin has spoken frequently about her son’s U.S. Army service in the Iraq War, and Track currently serves as a counselor, working with veterans suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder.
“From my understanding, she was in full ‘mama grizzly’ mode defending the kids,” the source said of Sarah Palin’s mindset.
According to the source, Track Palin left the fight nursing four cracked ribs, while his father was bloodied up.
At some point, Bristol Palin became involved in the free-for-all, but the Palin source took issue with a report suggesting she had brandished a “mean right hook,” noting that the eldest Palin daughter is left-handed.
In an unrelated episode, a 25-year-old man was arrested last Sunday on charges of stalking Bristol Palin after allegedly sending her approximately 1,000 Facebook messages and then appearing in her driveway — an incident the Palin source described as “scary.”
