A couple weeks back, Willow Palin (one of Sarah's intellectually challenged brood), took to Facebook to defend her family against a classmate who mocked her mother's dopey television show. "Haha your so gay. I have no idea who you are, But what I've seen pictures of, your disgusting ... My sister had a kid and is still hot . . . Tre stfu. Your such a faggot." Charmingwhat a lovely gal!
I mean, look at the other day. Willow, finally, my 16 year old, she had had it up to here with somebody saying very, very hateful things about the family and saying mean things about her little brother Trig, and Willow finally responded and she used a bad word when she responded in defense of her family. And her response became national news, even hard news copy it turned into, so that's ridiculous and I had to explain to her, "Willow, there is no justice here but you have to just zip your lip and let's move forward."
Remember back when we were kids, and we had to walk 10 miles to school in the snow, and dinosaurs roamed the Earth, and kids had names like Dick and Jane? Back then, parents of naughty children acknowledged when their kids were being bad. They'd swat them, or wash their mouths out with soap, or even just yell at them for being assholes. (You owe it to yourself to click that link.)
I know the latest trend in parenting is to don a pair of blinders when it comes to your child's awful behavior, but Palin takes it to jaw-dropping heights.
Wouldn't you think that if your kid were dropping f-bombs (and fucking up contractions) all over the internet, you might blame your child for being a jackass, instead of castigating the messenger who pointed it out? Wouldn't you also take a few minutes to figure out where you might have gone wrong to raise such a rancid little puke?
Sarah Palin, in case you're wondering what the proper response would've been, this non-mother has a few ideas for you.
1.) Take all the money you were going to spend on that brat's Xmas gifts, and instead send a nice, fat donation to the Matthew Shepard Foundation in her name.
2.) Buy her a copy of English Grammar for Dummies and take turns reading it aloud to each other, as I believe you could both benefit. (It's OK if you guys need to move your lips.)
3.) Take her to Planned Parenthood and get her on some birth control, so you don't wind up with another unwanted grandchild. Unless you're angling for her to star in "16 and Pregnant," Season 3, in which case, carry on.
4) And lastlyand this is most importanthave Willow issue a sincere official apology for her offensive language and aggressive stupidity. Children can be forgiven for a certain amount of ignorance, but they need to take responsibility for their actions if they're ever going to grow into responsible, mature adults. Do for Willow what your mama never did for you.
