Sarah Palin’s daughter Bristol Palin, 20, has spoken out about comments MSNBC’s Keith Olbermann made about her. He called her the Worst Person Of The Year. Below is Bristol’s facebook response to Olbermann. For anyone who has listened to Bristol speak on Dancing With The Stars you gotta know the message below was written by Sarah Palin or one of her people – for certain it was not Bristol!
Recently, a left wing commentator named Keith Olbermann attacked me for being a spokesperson for abstinence education and for being an Ambassador for the Candies Foundation, which promotes teen pregnancy awareness and prevention education. He went so far as to call me “the worst person” he knows, apparently, for my efforts to educate teenagers about the real world risks of premarital sex.
Accusing me of hypocrisy is by now, an old canard. What Mr. Olbermann lacks in originality he makes up for with insincere incredulity. Mr. Olbermann fails to understand that in order to have credibility as a spokesperson, it sometimes takes a person who has made mistakes. Parents warn their children about the mistakes they made so they are not repeated. Former gang members travel to schools to educate teenagers about the risks of gang life. Recovered addicts lecture to others about the risks of alcohol and drug abuse. And yes, a teen mother talks about the benefits of preventing teen pregnancy.
I have never claimed to be perfect. If that makes me the “worst person in the world” to Mr. Olbermann, then I must apologize for not being absolutely faultless like he undoubtedly must be.
To Mr. Olbermann let me say this: you can attack me all you want. But you will not stop me from getting my message out about teen pregnancy prevention. And one day, if you ever have a daughter, you may change your mind about me.
I am not a huge fan of Bristol and I gotta say there are a lot of people I can think of that are worse than her. Okay so the PSA she did with The Situation is lame – but if it teaches just one girl to be more careful than it is a good thing.
