Reportedly texting a homophobic slur while still involved on set with the "Dancing with the Stars" reality show, Bristol Palin can't seem to stop being a liability to her Grizzly, Presidential Hopeful, Hockey Mama.
Nobody was really shocked that the young single mother had perhaps, made another bad choice, but the timing was also bad for a couple of reasons. She had managed to work her way up through the television Dancing competition, while garnering enough public attention, sympathy and votes to remain on the show. That innocent, small town girl shine may have just worn off. Second, Mama is looking to rebuild that whole "I'm perfect for you as President" image, just as long as hubby and her kids stay in the background and out of trouble. Oops.
All Bristol was trying to do, reportedly, was defend her mother when a Facebook user said a few nasty things about Sarah's own reality show. That would normally be commendable, except that young Ms. Palin should know that these sorts of electronic messages don't disappear after being sent.
"It should be fun to see how the image consultants on the Palin payroll spin this one", said reality TV analyst Hyrum Toejammer. "But, I think the whole reality TV thing for the Palin Family was just a series of bad calls. Good for the Democratic party in 2012 maybe, but not great for Grizzly Mama. At least she can shoot straight. She'd make a good hunting partner for Dick Cheney".
