Why Sarah Palin — The Mama Grizzly — Needs To Take Parenting Lessons From Hillary Clinton!

Posted Mon, July 19, 2010 6:58pm EST

Need proof that the much-maligned Secretary of State is an A+ plus  mom? Check out her daughter Chelsea.

Need proof that Sarah “Pro-Family” Palin could use a major refresher course in parenting — take a look at daughter Bristol’s latest adventures.

Isn’t it ironic that uber-working mom Hillary who took heat as First Lady because she didn’t take her cookie recipes seriously, should be the mom of a Stanford and Oxford University grad, who is getting married on July 31, at the age of 30.

She’s NOT pregnant! She has a great job at Avenue Capital Group, a hedge fund, and her husband-to-be is a 32-year-old investment banker — Marc Mezvinsky — who has NEVER stripped naked for Playgirl or any other form of media. Sarah’s future son-in-law,20,  on the other hand, after his adventures as a nude model and D Lister Kathy Griffin’s date, is currently unemployed but is  planning to get his GED and be an electrician.

Furthermore, Chelsea’s wedding, in which 400 guests are expected, is a personal and PRIVATE affair — in other words, the photos and story are NOT being sold for the cover of Us Weekly, unlike Bristol Palin and her baby daddy Levi Johnston‘s.

“My lips are sealed,” Hillary told NBC’s Andrea Mitchell in an interview July 18, “I am under very strict orders not to talk about it.”

But, at least she knows about it … every detail. “It’s the most important activity going on in my life right now, I have to confess,” Hillary told China’s Central Television. “Probably just a tiny bit of a motherly overstatement.”

Now let’s do the Palin family contrast. Bristol gets pregnant at 17 and admits that neither of her pro-life parents EVER discussed birth control (“We never had the birds and the bees conversation”) with her. She gave up her plans to go to college to study for a business degree and then become a real estate agent , in order to raise her son Tripp,  now 18 months, EVEN though her parents are wealthy enough after Sarah’s $12 million haul from the sales of her memoir Going Rogue, to get her daycare money or a babysitter.

She and her family, get into a vicious war of words and a custody/support battle with baby daddy Levi Johnston after the couple breaks their first engagement. The ugly fight  erupts in Vanity Fair magazine, on Oprah and on The Tyra Banks Show, among other places.

Levi basically calls Sarah an absentee mom who’s “extremely vindictive”, and Sarah says that Levi “would sell [his] body for money ( which) reflects a desperate need for attention and [is] likely to say and do anything for even more attention.”

Now, in a move that has shocked the world AND especially Sarah Palin — her daughter, 19,  announced on the cover of Us Weekly that she and Levi have reunited and would get married. Reportedly, the pair was paid $100,000 for the scoop. They are now apparently shopping a reality show about their new life together.

The re-newed engagement was such a surprise to the Palin parents, that they barely had time to issue a public statement before the magazine hit the newsstands.

“Bristol at 19 is now a young adult. We obviously want what’s best for our children,” they intoned. “Bristol believes in redemption and forgiveness to a degree most of us struggle to put in practice in our daily lives.”

How sad AND dysfunctional is it that Bristol felt the need to go behind her mother’s back in the most public of ways to tell the world about her new marriage plans.

“It is intimidating and scary just to think about what her (Sarah’s) reaction is going to be. Hopefully she will jump on board,” Bristol confesses to Us Weekly, after making it clear that she and Levi got engaged “even though we don’t have the approval of our parents.”

It’s a tragic statement about the gulf between Bristol and the “pro-family mama grizzly” Sarah, that the gulf in their real life family — not fake political campaign life family  – is wider than the Bering Sea that Sarah claims to see from her house.

“I love my mom more than anything. I pray she’ll attend our wedding,” Bristol feels more comfortable telling a magazine, than her mom. “When she accepts this, it’ll be awesome.”

Even more poignant is what Bristol says about her dad Todd: “I pray that my dad will come and walk me down the aisle. I don’t feel like walking down alone.”

Again, contrast that with the Chelsea Clinton nuptials. “You should assume that if he (Bill Clinton) makes it down the aisle in one piece it’s going to be a major accomplishment,” Hillary told NBC’s Andrea Mitchell. “He is going to be so emotional, so am I.”

Somehow, despite Bill’s infidelities, Hillary’s legal and then political career, and her non-Tea Party leanings, both Clintons have forged a close, open, accepting and loving relationship with their daughter. And let’s not forget, that just like Bristol, Chelsea went on the campaign trail with her mom when she ran for the Democratic Presidential nomination. In fact, Chelsea was her most constant and loyal companion and she has NEVER embarrassed her mom publicly in any way. But can you imagine if Bristol and Levi DO get their own reality show, how that may affect Sarah’s presidential ambitions? Will they be such a public embarrassment that it will be impossible for her mom to run?

So what does all this say about Sarah and Hillary as parents? It says to me that Hillary has done a damn good job and has given her daughter the unconditional love, and top priority status in her life that any child deserves.

As for Sarah — it sure is a lot easier to talk a good “Mama Grizzly” parenting game, than to live it. But the proof is in the progeny.

And isn’t it sad that Bristol can only get her mother’s attention on the cover of a magazine. And that she can only afford her dreams through a reality show?

I would be so proud of Chelsea if she was my daughter, so refined and educated. Palin’s family is a mess, all on drugs, uneducated, liers, in jail and out of jail, doing drugs, mean, nasty what a mess. Palin has nothing to look forwarto when she thinks about her kids, she doesn’t even take care of Trip and he is retarded. Palin,you should be ashamed of yourself, you are a fraud and a lier and just troll for $$$. Go away you redneck!

Hey Mel, The same can be said for the Palins. Sarah was cheating on Toad and Sarah has been stealing from her PAC money. Lets face it Mel, the Palins are hicks and very sad and Sarah is a jealous mean spirited dingbat from Alaksa.
Please Mel, tell this trash to stay in Wasilla. The quitta from Wasilla!

Guess all you liberals who are screaming about Levi’s mom did not get the memo that Chelsea is marrying a man who’s father is a felon who just finished serving his time for bank, mail and wire fraud…$10,000,000 dollars worth of fraud! And Chelsea’s father was impeached for lying under oath and has a pretty sleazy habit of ignoring his marriage vows! I don’t know that Chelsea’s parents deserve much credit for her successes…in fact, if she succeeds it will be in spite or her parents, not because of them! Chelsea is headed back to school so right now it looks like she has become a perpetual student, but I guess eventually she will brave the big, bad world and get a job!

Hey Mel, can’t you read? Article is about moms. You talk about the dads but not the ‘quitta from Wasilla’ (who could stand to go back to school like Chelsea, given her “vocabulary” problems!)
Mel, You got a tuff task trying to defend Palin & her pus_y-wooped husband, nice try. (yea I mentioned Bristol’s dad, couldn’t help it; at least I noticed)

Wow-Every parent would want a daughter like Chelsea, refined

How is the Palin family responsible for Levi’s actions? In fact, I believe Sarah has let it known how little respect she has for Levi…Bristol may still love the father of her child, but that doesn’t make HER respsonsible for his actions either…he showed the world exactly what a worthless, vengeful, little liar he is and hopefully Bristol will wake up and leave him in her dust!

Poor Sarah, she must be so jealous of Hilary and Chelsea. Everytime she sees Bristol and Levi she sees LOSERS! She sees her poor parenting skills hit her in the face everyday. Palin has nothing to look forward to when it comes to her dysfunctional family. They are either in jail, dropped out of HS, have no class have no culture, have no skills and the same is for Palin. This women is a mess, and so is everything else she touches. Sarah, go home and get real, you are a train wreck, people watch you to see you and your messed up family go off the tracks!!!

I do know why Sarah Palin is so mean and snarkey of elites, the women is so jealous. Hilary has done a excellent job raising Chelsea, so bright and educated and so is her fiance. While Hilary looks forward to a beautiful wedding with people of culture and accomplshment, Poor Sarah sees dropout Levi and Bristol, Levi’s mom in jail, none of the guests will have culture or morals and no education, they will be having the wedding at Levi’s trailor with BBQ and a bunch of white trash like the Palins as guests. Wow- no wonder Palin is so mean and jealous, the women has nothing to look forward to when it somes to her dysfunctional family. The only thing she does is troll the lower 48 for $$$$$$$$$ with her lies and lack of a education. The women is a train wreck reality star like the rests. Not proud to be an American with trash like her.

Cannot wait to see the beautiful pictures of Chelsea and
her new husband. Makes me proud to see culture and kids with a good education behind them. I see Sarah Palin and her messed up family and think wow- this trashy women was trying to get into the White House. Palin is not educated and has no cluture,and you can tell as a politician said in Alaska, Palin shows that she is trash as soon as she opens her mouth and Wasilla is Valley Trash. Palin, go home,
people are laughing at you.

I think its such a sad time of affairs in this country when a women such as Sarah Palin can be on the national stage with no education, no real talent and just say mean snarky things and get attention. This women was not a good mayor and quit as Governor. What has happened to this country, she has no shame and is not embarrassed of her uneducated dysfunctional family but continues to be mean and say nothing to add to policy. Its so sad to have this women out there. I’m embarrassed for this country!

Poor Poor pathetic Sarah Palin. She has to attend her loser daughter’s wedding to another loser Levi, with no education and no job. While Hilary and Bill attend a beautiful cultured wedding with the elite educated people of the world. Poor Poor Sarah, stuck with the hillbills are the low lifes in Alaska. Thats why Sarah sees hate. Looking forward to seeing the beautiful pictures of the Clinton wedding, go Hilary and poor Sarah, she has ploroids of a dysfunctional loser uneducated couple called Bristol and Levi. Palin you are a scam and a mess!
