“How sharper than a serpent’s tooth it is
To have a thankless child!” – Shakespeare’s King Lear
Sarah Palin knows.
Her daughter Bristol has gone liberal and forbids Sarah from visiting because she finds her mother “too conservative.”
This is the same Bristol whom Sarah unreservedly supported throughout the teen’s out-of-wedlock pregnancy. This is the same Bristol who would never have been invited to be a contestant on Dancing With the Stars (DWTS) if it were not for her mother’s fame. This is the same Bristol whose mother endured boos from the audience when she came to see and cheer her daughter at DWTS. This is the same Bristol, 20 years old without a college education or a job, who would never have been able to buy a $172,000 house in Arizona were it not for her DWTS earnings. This is the same Bristol who at age 20 would never be signed to a book deal to write her memoir (!) with publishing house William Morrow & Co. if it were not for her mother’s fame.
From the UK’s Daily Mail, April 28, 2011:
Bristol Palin has reportedly banned her mother Sarah from her new house in Maricopa [Arizona] because she is too controlling – and too conservative.
The 20-year-old has become increasingly liberal since her appearance on Dancing with the Stars, and is said to have had a huge row with Mrs Palin when she announced she was considering supporting gay marriage.
According to the National Enquirer, she has told her mother to stay out of her house until she accepts her new views – which Mrs Palin is worried could harm her own political ambitions.
Bristol is hoping her mother will back down if she refuses to let her see her grandson, Tripp.
Bristol is believed to have developed a more liberal stance when she moved to Los Angeles to work on Dancing with the Stars last year. One of her co-performers was Dutch dancer Louis Van Amstel, who revealed he was gay in a 2009 interview.
Bristol bought a $172,000 house in Maricopa, Arizona, last year, and moved there with her two-year-old son in December.
It comes just two months after the Enquirer reported Bristol could be working with Michelle Obama on a new project, a move said to have sent Mrs Palin into a fury. It’s not the only career aspiration her mother disapproves of – she is also said to be angry at Bristol’s plans for a ‘big project’ in Hollywood.
That is not the least of Sarah’s woes. Earlier this week Tripp’s father, Bristol’s ex-fiance and media whore Levi Johnston, announced he plans to write a memoir about his time living with the Palins. The title of this 20-year-old’s “memoir” is Deer in the Headlights: My Life in Sarah Palin’s Crosshairs.
