Wonkette guts Sarah and Bristol in their article describing Bristol as Sarah’s “dumb-ass” daughter. The focus of the Wonkette article is Bristol’s post attacking President Obama for coming to Alaska to formally designate the name of Mt. McKinley as “Denali”. Here is an excerpt from Bristol’s blog:
“By the way, no one is buying the “Denali is what the Alaskans have called it for years” line. I’ve never called the mountain Denali .. and neither does anyone I know …
It’s Mt. Mckinley … It always has been and always will be to most of us…
What a waste..“
Except, Wonkette points out that Sarah, Bristol’s Mother, in a rather public, and memorable speech revealed that SHE calls the mountain “Denali”. Check out the video at 1:25:
But, there is more that Wonkette could have included. Bristol said:
“I wish we could add up how much this trip costs the tax payers dollars……….. They probably had to BARGE limousines here!!!!!!! They rented out an entire TOWER at our nicest hotel here? A TOWER!!!!!!!!!!”
I guess Bristol forgot that she and her family rode in a limo to the Palin family brawl.
The amazing thing is that when the American public elects anyone as President, we expect that we will be paying for the President’s travel arrangements anywhere he goes. The people of Alaska didn’t expect to pay for Bristol’s hotel expenses when she traveled with her mother before her mother quit being the Governor of Alaska. Bristol must have thought we forgot that she traveled with her mother and charged taxpayers for Bristol’s travel expenses, even when Bristol wasn’t invited. Remember when Sarah took Bristol to the luxury hotel in New York and stayed five days and four nights at a rate of $707.29 per night to stay at the Essex overlooking Central Park.
Remember when Sarah was ordered to refund expenses inappropriately charged to Alaska taxpayers of $7000.00? Nobody will be questioning the charges for the President’s travel expenses.
Maybe Sarah should have more than the “Denali talk” with Bristol. Maybe she should also have the “stupid” talk with Bristol!
