    Tripp Palin uses gay slur

    Calls his aunt a f-----t and Bristol and Willow act like it's cute. Not a lot of effective parenting going on either. Makes you wonder whether Sarah's household was the same way.

    Here's Willow herself using it a couple of years ago, so I guess it might not have come from Levi's side of the family.

    The typical "reality" shows these days seem to find audiences who expect to see train wrecks. If my child ever wanted to do such a show, I would counsel against it in the strongest way possible.

    In this case, when you think about why this young woman got the show in the first place, it is so silly. Why wouldn't you expect this kind of outcome? And the blogs criticizing it are probably delighting the producers - more eyes are drawn to the broadcast.

    So now the words of a 4 or 5 year old grandson of a former politician are political fodder?

    This is such an important topic. Not like we have anything like the economy to focus on.

    Of course it is important for those who want to vilify the Palens.

    Are we to the point where we can't focus on more than one thing at a time?

    Palins.

    And I don't know if vilification is the right term, but it's good to know where some people are coming from.

    Of course we can - I just have a hard time understanding how or why this would make the top 500 or so that are worth focusing on.

    You don't think a family in the public eye teaching a child to use a homophobic slur is an issue? Would it be different if it were a racial slur?

    Sarah Palin is recently complaining about not being invited to the RNC. The way her family functions, especially when it's displayed on reality tv, is relevant to the sort of person she is and culture she sets.

    I guess if you say so... I still fail to see the relevance of reporting breathlessly on the actions of her toddler-aged grandson - absolutely ridiculous, IMHO. But I guess since there are enough like you who seem to think its somehow relevant news and therefore appear to hang on it, they'll keep reporting on it.

    I'm hanging on it? Really?

    I can't remember if I've ever going to huffpost other than following a link.

    But, I do wish people would quit acting like the Palins bring anything of value to the national policy table. Episodes like this demonstrate their mindset and cultural approach.

    I'd think it was an equally big deal if one of the Obama girls did something similar.

    I think there are very few who think they DO bring anything of value to the national policy table at this point - not saying none, but very few. Having said that, I think its ridiculous for you to claim that "episodes like thsi demonstrate their mindset and cultural approach." Do you think that we should all think that the shooting rampage in Colorado "demonstrates the mindset and cultural approach" of the shooter's parents and family? Either contention is ridiculous, IMHO.

    I wouldn't - I'd think it was equally stupid for the media to be reporting on - that is, of course, if one categorizes HuffPost as "media" in the first place.

    I have to disagree with you here McKinney. First, what comes out of a three year old's mouth absolutely reflects on the family as a whole. Where else did he learn a word like that? And if my kids said a word that ugly, I guarantee you the reaction in my house would not be stifled laughter. That just confirms for me that the kid learned the word from his mother and aunt.

    I am glad that Sarah Palin is finally drifting off the stage. She has had far more than her 15 minutes. She reflects the worst of our party.

    Anything that hastens Palin's departure from the stage of conservatism and/or the Republican party is fine by me.
