Bristol Palin: Overpaid Bad Example

by Pa Rock

Bristol Palin, the spawn of Sarah and Todd, is, if nothing else, just like her money-grubbing mother. While Sarah busies herself cranking out books faster than she can possibly write them - and speaking to any group with a spare hundred grand lying around, elder daughter Bristol is hard at “work” pulling in her own pile of ill-gotten cash.

Bristol has reportedly brought in over three hundred thousand dollars walking around the stage on her “Dancing with the Stars” gig. An internet rumor also has her being considered for her own reality television show. And then there’s her lucrative speaking engagements. Like her mom, Bristol will chatter on mindlessly about nearly anything for a fee of between $15,000 and $30,000. Her specialty topic, of course, is the importance of sexual abstinence for young people.

One can’t help but wonder how Bristol’s abstinence message is being viewed by America’s youth. On the one hand, those who choose to practice abstinence can often look forward to a hardscrabble life of trying to make ends meet, while on the other hand, a youngster who didn’t practice abstinence becomes a millionaire and famous television personality as she warns kids not to follow her bad example.

Greed and hypocrisy must be hereditary.

I get it. For Fifteen Grand Bristol will tell your group why she abstained from abstinence.

Now that she is a single mom she needs all the gigs and tv opportunities to support herself and her child.

This is not Dan Quayle's Republican Party. I wonder how Murphy Brown feels about Bristol?
