Bristol Palin didn’t go to Harvard Law School like President Obama or her frenemy Ted Cruz did. She wants us to know this, apparently. Someone, please get ahold of Bristol’s personal assistant, email inbox, whatever she uses to keep in touch with the vast worldwide community she tries to communicate with on a daily basis, and tell her: WE ALREADY KNOW THIS, PRECIOUS.
Here is Bristol Palin in her own words, in a screenshot from her blog post:
Nevermind the fact that she forgot to use the word “be,” thereby automatically rendering her sentence structurally unsound. That’s less important. Let’s soak in for a moment the gist of what she’s saying, that is, if it’s even humanly possible.
First, here’s some context. In a nutshell, Bristol is glad her mom has decided to endorse Donald Trump. She’s mad that Ted Cruz campaign spokesman Rick Tyler issued the following statement when rumors first started circling that Sarah Palin would throw her support behind the Donald:
“I think it [would] be a blow to Sarah Palin, because Sarah Palin has been a champion for the conservative cause, and if she was going to endorse Donald Trump, sadly, she would be endorsing someone who’s held progressive views all their life on the sanctity of life, on marriage, on partial-birth abortion.”
She then went on a long diatribe of how she “likes Cruz” after meeting him, but that this statement was just way over the line. Cue the inspired “I didn’t go to Harvard Law School” quote. In other words, she’s saying she knows a few things despite not knowing other things.
Okay, we’re done trying to understand Palin logic. Our heads are starting to hurt. Cue the internet reaction where she’s currently getting the roasting of a lifetime for making the comment.
Here are some older posts, but still very relevant:
In all fairness, we finally do get what Bristol was trying to say: She’s not that bright but is still going to speak up regardless. In that respect, the apple doesn’t seem to fall too far from the tree. Perhaps next time she can say something like: “I didn’t get married, but I still know how to teach abstinence and make babies at the same time.”
