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.
