Sarah Palin and family involved in drunken brawl
If these reports are true, we're hanging our heads with shame at this former first family of Alaska and our almost-vice president.
Sarah Palin and her family are making the Real Housewives look innocent, according to multiple reports that they were involved in a feisty brawl over the weekend.
It all started at a house party for the Iron Dog snowmobile race, which Todd Palin has won four times, according to the Washington Post. Several Alaska bloggers were in attendance and say Track Palin, the son of Sarah and Todd Palin, spotted one of sister Willow's ex-boyfriends and decided to confront the guy.
Alaska political blogger, Amanda Coyne, gives the scoop from there, "There's words, and more. The owner of the house gets involved, and he probably wished he hadn't. At this point, he's up against nearly the whole Palin tribe: Palin women screaming. Palin men thumping their chests. Word is that Bristol has a particularly strong right hook, which she employed repeatedly.
"As people were leaving in a cab, Track was seen on the street, shirtless, flipping people off, with Sarah right behind him, and Todd somewhere in the foreground, tending to his bloody nose."
For Palin's part in all of this, the former governor was allegedly exchanging such pleasantries as, "Do you know who I am?"
To which someone responded, "This isn't some damned hillbilly reality show!"
The Anchorage Police Department is confirming the fight, though is not verifying the Palins' role in the incident as of now. Communications director, Jennifer Castro, said in an email to the Huffington Post that a "verbal and physical altercation" occurred outside the residence and "some of the Palin family members were in attendance at the party." Castro further said that police believe alcohol played a part in the incident.
According to Castro, none of the parties wanted to press charges and no arrests were made at the time of the event, but the investigation is still ongoing.
I think we can all agree, if these reports are true, we definitely dodged a bullet with this family. (In case we didn't already know it.)
