Honestly, is This Really Bristol's Top Priority?
I really wanted to ignore Bristol's In Touch Magazine story from last week. It's another of her oh-so-familiar self-congratuatory spins on her being a good mom, Tripp being amazing, and Levi being worthless. I really wanted to spare everyone that, including myself. But, today on Politicalgates blog there's some very interesting new information about properties the Palins have been buying up, and within their post they reference the In Touch article and the lies within.
They give tons of information about Bristol's new Wasilla house, pictures outside and inside, and they expose her for, once again, lying to her faithful rag In Touch Magazine. Shocking, I know. Politicalgates is worth your time. Go and read about Sarah, Todd and Bristol's property purchases, see if you have any sympathy for the rough life Bristol is going to have living in that 3,155 sq ft home. It's NOT the "1950s fixer-upper" she claims in the interview. She also claims to have Tripp's best interests at heart.
Bristol may have had a taste of the limelight, but now her top priority is her son. "Honestly, I just want him to be happy."
Then give him more time with these people, 'cause anyone can see that makes him happy:
Now, doesn't that do your hearts good? I know it does mine. Yes, these are from Facebook and they are the new, right now, profile pictures. Mercede and Levi know people are interested, people want Tripp to have visitation with his daddy, and people will be happy when they see these. It was nice of them to share these pictures publicly.
One more thing about Politicalgates, give yourself the time to read all the way to the end. It's long and it's worth it. Hat's off the them for great investigative work.
I can't resist quoting their wrap up message to the Palins. It's spot on.
Bristol, Sarah, Todd: You made millions of dollars through the marketing of yourself and your family. Stop playing the victim, and stop accusing Levi of not properly supporting you. Levi was ostracised by your family and was never given a chance. He was also not in the position to make hundreds of thousands of dollars through marketing his son Tripp, in magazines, abstinence adverts, and on TV reality shows - like Bristol did, without any shame. Stop making up stupid stories about how tough and hard-working you all are, when none of this is true. How thrifty and modest you are. Try to be honest, and try to take responsibility for your actions, for a change.
And to that I would add- let Tripp see his daddy, get to know his daddy, and love his daddy. His life will be richer for it. He doesn't need your 3155 sq ft house, but he does need and deserves his daddy's love.
