• Bristol Palin's Ghostwriter Has Strong Words for Margaret Cho

    Bristol Palin's ghostwriter took to Facebook over the weekend to response to Margaret Cho's (not particularly convincing) accusation that Sarah Palin coerced her daughter into keeping the Palin Family Circus alive on Dancing with the Stars

    "I have explained my own motivations for accepting the invitation to dance, which included the simple fact that I was ready to get out of my comfort zone and try something new and challenging.  I thought dancing would also be a great way to exercise — and it was.  I thought it would boost my confidence — and it did.  Notably absent from this calculus were political considerations.  You want to talk politics, talk to my mom. You want to talk rumba, waltz and the beautiful Spanish paso doble, I'm your girl (but if you want to talk to the expert, call Mark)…

    "I will give my friend credit for creativity, and extra points for getting so many "facts" wrong in so few sentences.  Let me be blunt: my mom did not "force" me to go on DWTS.  She did not ask me either.  The show approached me.  I thought about it.  I made the decision…

    "You say you 'don’t agree with the family’s politics at all' but I say, if you understood that commonsense conservative values supports the right of individuals like you, like all of us, to live our lives with less government interference and more independence, you would embrace us faster than KD Lang at an Indigo Girls concert."

    First of all, for real, Bristol Palin's ghostwriter? Surely, you didn't spend six years in ghostwriter school just to make lame inscrutable homophobe jokes like that. You're the ghostwriter to a national icon's daughter; make your homophobe jokes more timely and more scrutable! Most of the little girls out there who are trying to get pregnant so that they can follow in their hero's two left footsteps and become spokespeople for the abstinence movement have never heard of those lesbians. Be more thorough in your bigotry research.

    Second of all, Bristol Palin's ghostwriter, that argument for "commonsense conservative values" is laughably unconvincing. Even conservative "values voters" out there are, like, "Um, supporting the rights of individuals like Margaret Cho doesn't sound like something I'd get behind." About as convincing as the idea of Briston Palin writing the phrase "absent from this calculus."
