It’s so frustrating to misplace things. Baby powder is just one of the many remnants of Trig’s baby days that may have been retired to the closet by a babysitter. Between Alaska, the Bus tours, trips to L.A., and all those speaking appearances to raise money for special needs kids, it’s hard to know where to even begin looking. Maybe Sarah has a new use for that powder and it has nothing to do with Trig.
We know that an “innocuous” powder was sent to CBS.
(baby powder)(innocuous and harmless)
Like baby powder, the powder received by CBS was determined to be “harmless”.
The note that accompanied the white powder said “This is what will happen to you if Bristol Palin stays on [the show].” So the real message is that if Bristol stays on the show, CBS will get another package of baby powder, and a lot of extra publicity for the show. The amazing thing is that this same threat was made during the first season of DWTS when Bristol appeared. Yes, there was a threat then. Yes, it was a package with white powder. That powder was determined to also be harmless too! The “victim” card has been played one too many time by a member of the Palin family. Nobody cares if Bristol is dancing with Mark Ballas, nobody cares Sarah has left Trig with a sitter again to appear in the audience, nobody cares where Todd and Piper are, and nobody cares what brand of toilet paper Sarah chose at K Mart. We really only care that we are listening to Sarah complain about how she and her family are the victims once more. If this Mama Grizzly really wanted to stop being the target of media attention she’d stop writing on her facebook, she’d stay out of the public spotlight, she’d wear ordinary shoes to K Mart, and she’d take Trig to the park.
Media has reported that Sarah Palin, the mama grizzly, has “come to her daughter’s defense.” The courageous, protective, dedicated mother that she is, has put her foot down, and posted an entire paragraph on her facebook page. Sarah cautioned:
Clearly Sarah Palin doesn’t consider this harmless powder to be a real threat. Describing this event as a “goofy antic” makes it clear that there was never a perception of danger. Moreover, if the threat of anthrax was real, and if the Palin’s took this as a real threat, a mama grizzly wouldn’t write something on facebook, she’d go get her cub and hide her so nobody could hurt her. Instead of bringing attention to the note, she’d hide it and ask that Bristol be voted off the show. In that one paragraph post Sarah used the last 1/3 of the note to give instructions to “supporters” about how and where to find the call in number, and voting instructions to help Bristol stay on the show, thereby prolonging the “threat.” The most troubling thing about the post is the suggestion that “WE” find these efforts to be quite motivating. Everything is always about Sarah, and this mama grizzly can’t allow Bristol to sink or swim, dance or fail, on her own. It is a pathetic example of Sarah Palin, once again, using her children to promote herself, and of playing the victim, even though the harmless powder had nothing to do with Sarah Palin,…unless of course she was the one who mailed it.
Fortunately Sarah and Willow had their hair and make-up done so they’d have a picture to post with this note on facebook. Luckily for Sarah she had someplace to wear her new shoes.
While Bristol is practicing, Sarah is at K Mart shopping. K Mart carries baby powder.
