So, this is mildly interesting if you’re into Palin gossip. It’s also completely unsurprising. I just think this has got to go to prove how much we are no longer a rural society because, people, of course. Jesus Christ, of course. Do people actually not know women like Sarah Palin? Do they just not exist in cities? I don’t know.
But that’s not what I find interesting. What I find interesting are the comments, multiple comments berating Cho for revealing this bit of gossip. As if, because Cho considers herself Bristol Palin’s friend, she has some obligation to keep her mouth shut about how poorly Palin’s mom treats her.
I’ve been giving this a lot more thought than is warranted, probably because I come from a family where people pick on babies are we’re all supposed to pretend to not notice it for the sake of… I don’t know… not hurting the baby maligner’s feelings I guess, but I am noticing more frequently the ways bad behavior is covered up. And this idea that it’s a violation of the bonds of friendship to notice and refuse to be silent about a friend’s mom’s bad behavior towards that friend?
As if it’s a favor to the friend and not a way to protect the mother?
