Report: Palin Family Allegedly Involved in Drunken Brawl

As with any story involving the Palins, take a lot of this with a huge grain of salt.

It was a brawl in the family for the Palin clan.

Former vice-presidential candidate Sarah Palin got into a fracas worthy of reality TV when she, husband Todd and their entourage of children allegedly got involved in a drunken brawl at an Anchorage house party, according to multiple reports.

The former Alaska governor’s daughter Bristol even allegedly threw punches and son Track ripped his shirt off in anger and flipped the bird in the Saturday melee, according to the reports.

The backwoods brawling began after the clan rolled up to the soiree in a stretch Hummer.

Sarah and Todd Palin had been invited to the 40th birthday party for a champion snowmobile racer and brought the children along, according to the blog Political Gates.

At one point during the event, Bristol allegedly unleashed a “flurry of blows” on the host because a boy wanted to “have a go” at her sister Willow, the blog said.

The former “Dancing With The Stars” — who has a 5-year-old son, Tripp — stumbled onto the floor and was ushered outside.

Outside, the entire Palin crew got involved, with Track allegedly ripping off his shirt and starting throwing punches. Todd Palin ended up with a bloody nose after the brawl, but it wasn’t clear how, the blog said.

A band that was hired to play the party kept the music going throughout the whole ordeal.

According to Alaska political blogger Amanda Coyne, who also reported on the fracas, Sarah Palin yelled at one point, “Don’t you know who I am?”

One partygoer responded, “This isn’t some damned hillbilly reality show!”

Consider the sources involved here.

Blogger Amanda Coyne reported Wednesday that the Palins were at the center of the fight. Coyne cites anonymous sources who described a shirtless Track Palin, Bristol Palin throwing punches and former Gov. Sarah Palin screaming during the melee. The reports have been widely re-circulated on national sites, including Wonkette and Gawker.

Like we said, consider those sources. Palin’s Facebook page claimed last Sunday that she had been traveling and wasn’t there. Her word typically is more reliable than some unknown blogger and smear sites like Wonkette and Gawker, who don’t need evidence of any kind to trash people. Whatever the case, their obsession with all things Palin likely won’t end any time soon.

    And there are no pictures? No videos? You don’t think that those would be instant and abundant? (Not you, I know you doubt this dumb story).

    I went to the harridan’s website. Lib, lib, lib. And a hateful one at that.

    The best part was the Washington Post reposted it. Just like the National Enquirer!

    As Eleanore said in “The Lion in Winter”, after Richard, Geoffrey, and John had conspired to kill their father, Henry II, and Henry had promised to kill them all in return, “What family hasn’t had it’s ups and downs?”

    The people who read this stuff know nothing about Alaska and especially about Alaska “bloggers” who live for such stories. I would put the probability at 90% that they were not at this party.

    “son Track ripped his shirt off in anger and flipped the bird ”


    This story sounds like bullshit, or maybe at best an exaggeration. Maybe somebody got pissed and threw a punch. Maybe not. Maybe the punch was deserved, who knows? But this is so thinly sourced, I can’t see any reason to believe or care. None of these people are in office or running for office.

    Commenters on the overnight thread at AoSHQ reported that Amanda Coyne is a Democrat operative married to a Democratic operative and who is responsible for the flurry of bullshit ethics complaints filed against Palin when she was governor. She’s a notorious Palin hater.

    So yeah, consider the source on this one.

    The problem, of course, is that it is being widely reported as fact without any hint that the source may be biased. Heck, the DJs on the local Oldies station were laughing about it on my morning commute. Most people will believe it happened JUST THIS WAY regardless of any facts that are later brought to light (not to rule out the possibility that it actually DID happen, stopped clocks and all that).

    Gawker and their brother and sister websites has made Palin bashing their mission, so they’re going to run with this wether it’s a real story or not.

    This was breathlessly reported as fact on ABC’s Good Morning America, with special emphasis on the alleged “Don’t you know who I am ??” cry.

    This is just a fresh, steaming heap of dung thrown at Palin to remind her that the smear machine is still warmed up and running, and to warn her to steer clear of opening her mouth prior to November.

    “At one point during the event, Bristol allegedly unleashed a “flurry of blows” on the host because a boy wanted to “have a go” at her sister Willow, the blog said.”

    Wouldn’t standing up for one’s sister to protect her from a 40 year old dirty old man be considered a good thing to Democrats? War on women right? Or if it wasn’t the 40 year old host, why was she hitting him?

    Who knows what happened but the Palin’s could certainly turn this around on the war on women crowd.

    If anyone but the Palins walked out of the party unassisted then it is not true. They have all developed skin of iron and even Tripp could have knocked the crap out most.
