    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.
