Bristol Palin answers Keith Olbermann's cruel attack

"I have never claimed to be perfect."
On her Facebook page, Bristol Palin defended herself against Keith Olbermann's recent cowardly attack on the young woman made on his MSPDS network show:
Mr. Olbermann--Sorry We Can't All Be As Perfect As You

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.

  1. Eloquent, honest, accurate, and inspiring. You are a chip off the ole block, there, kiddo. Actually, you are not a kid at all but a mature, beautiful woman, a mother, and an honorable citizen who stands up to anyone who accuses otherwise. God bless you, Bristol, your child and your entire family.

  2. I'm having trouble imagining a female human being within conception range of Keef, but yeah, she is right on the money.

  3. Larry, not sure I understand your comment, but I agree that Bristol has more class in her little finger than Keith Olbermann has EVER had. I find it absolutely appalling that the lefties are so intent on destroying a young woman like Bristol Palin. They couldn't stand it that she was so popular that her fans kept her on DWTS. Her mother scares them beyond belief. And frankly, comments like this are going a long way toward destroying whatever credibility Keith Olbermann ever had. Keep it up, Keith. You're showing yourself for being the small-minded idiot you really are.
