As early as the speech of Sarah Palin at the Republican National Convention we heard Sarah Palin lie. During that speech she talked about saying “thanks but no thanks” to the bridge to nowhere. Later when Charles Gibson interviewed her we learned that she actually favored the bridge.
Geoffrey Dunn has devoted an entire book to the Lies of Sarah Palin.
Even though I had strong feelings about Bristol’s appearance on Dancing with the Stars, and her willingness to abandon Tripp for celebrity engagements, and her corrective jaw surgery, I have tried to refrain from direct attacks. However after the publication of her new book my attitude changed. Part of what was so offensive about the new book was that Bristol admitted that she was willing to lie. She admitted in the book that she lied to her mother about where she was going and the person with whom she would be. That was quite an important lie. In the book she has told her audience that Levi “stole” her virginity. Yet in interviews she has said he didn’t really “steal” her virginity as evidenced by the fact that she continued to have sex with him. Thus she admits she lied to her mother, and later admits that she lied in the book about her “stolen” virginity. Even if you feel her lies were excusable, at some point we have to quite making excuses for her repeated lies. We now have proof that Bristol, like her mother, will lie about anything. We have actual interviews of Bristol talking about her intentions with regard to the move to Arizona that demonstrate, once again, that Bristol can’t be trusted.
In January of 2011 Bristol moved to Arizona. She bought this home.
The move to Arizona made the news not only because Bristol had moved out of Alaska, but because she was able to pay cash for her new home.
She was reported to have told friends that “she may enroll at an Arizona college once she moves into the home she just bought in the Grand Canyon state.”
She actually moved into the house in Arizona.
Bristol gave an interview on the Bob and Mark show wherein she said she “loves her new home” she “loves the town she lives in” and that she was planning on meeting with representatives from a Phoenix radio station about working as a dj for them. She also confirmed that she had a new boyfriend in Arizona.
The radio station confirmed that they had offered Bristol a job saying”
“It is an official offer to a very well known personality, who may be looking for a new career in what will most likely be her new home state,”
In the same article there was an incation that Bristol migh be attending Arizona State University in the fall.
Without question Bristol had not made permanent decisions about school, or employment, but it was clear that she had moved to her new home in Arizona planning at that time to live there rather than use the home for investment purposes.
Six months later, Bristol has changed her story, to suggest that the Arizona home was purchased for “investment”. In a recorded interview Bristol has explained that the house in Arizona was simply an “investment property” and she is leasing it out.. It is insignificant to all of us where Bristol is living, how many investment properties she has, or if her “medically necessary corrective jaw surgery” was in fact plastic surgery. What matters, is that Bristol is not trustworthy. What is so offensive is that Bristol thinks she can change her story and we aren’t smart enough to remember what she said and did just six months ago. If you lie often it is hard to keep track of the story you have told. Sarah Palin has that problem. It is now apparent that Bristol Palin is plagued with that same defect in her personality. Whether being afflicted with a tendency to chronically tell lies is inherited, or learned, is unclear. What is clear is that Bristol and Sarah share the same trait. Like mother, like daughter.
