More on the Palin family brawl

The police have released their report on the drunken brawl involving the Palins and it turns out to be a doozy, even though no charges will be filed.

If the McCain-Palin ticket had won, and McCain died in office, official White House state dinners would have been a lot more lively with president Palin and her family involved.

    1. I read it last night somewhere.

    2. I still couldn’t figure out what issues or subjects they were fighting over.

    3. It really looked like there were several conflicts going on at once, none of which were too clear as to why. Maybe they were just a bunch of very drunk people fighting to fight.

    4. Which is probably why the police didn’t charge anyone.

    Sarah Palin was once a vice-presidential candidate for the United States.

    …as if we could ever forget the first white-trash almost Vice-President.

    I hope you don’t mind comments like this too much, but you did misspell Palin as Plain in the article title (unless that was an intended insult).

    To be fair, we have had a number of “colorful” Presidential relatives. Billy Carter, for one, and Nixon had a brother who “borrowed” $200,000 from Howard Hughes when his restaurant failed. Plus, there was President LBJ himself, who pulled up his shirt to show his appendectomy scar at a press conference.

    From the article:

    From his statement, Track Palin – whom Officer Daily had a hard time getting to calm down because he was “angry and intoxicated”…

    Lucky for him he’s white and rich; other groups fare less well when angry and intoxicated in front of police.

    Thanks for pointing it out and I have corrected it. I actually welcome such corrections because typos annoy me no end, my own especially.

    But he actually had an appendectomy scar.

    Whereas when Palin claimed that the ability to see Russian territory from a place in Alaska qualified here as a foreign policy expert, she had never actually been to that place in Alaska.

    What Palin actually said was:

    They’re our next-door neighbors, and you can actually see Russia from land here in Alaska

    So she never claimed herself to have actually seen Russia from Alaska. Of course, the idea that seeing some Russian rocks and maybe some Russian trees would give someone a special insight into US/Russian relations is pretty dumb.

    Peters courted controversy in 2008, when Sarah Palin chose to use her song Independence Day as a walk-on anthem at rallies during the presidential election campaign.
    “Sarah Palin used it thinking it was a patriotic standard because she hadn’t listened to the song,” Peters says.
    “It is actually a story about domestic abuse and a women who is horribly oppressed and can’t figure a way out.”
    In response, Peters announced she would send all royalties from the use of the song to Planned Parenthood, an organisation that supports giving women the choice to have an abortion.
