Maybe she wanted to show she could make nice about a Democrat, but Bristol Palin is back to blogging — this time to praise Secretary of State Hillary Clinton for wearing glasses and toning down her makeup on a recent trip to Bangledesh. The post comes just a day after Palin took President Barack Obama to task for supporting same-sex marriage.
Palin says that Clinton’s glasses are “cool” and compares the hubbub about Hillary’s appearance to criticism she received about her own looks when she was on “Dancing with the Stars” in fall 2011.
In fact, by the end of the blog post, it’s all about Bristol, who writes:
“I was active and fit, but I did gain five to ten pounds over the course of the show. At my heaviest, I was still thinner than a lot of girls my age, but heavier than I am now. I’m not saying this because I’m somehow proud of how I looked on that show. Rather, I’m saying that I’ve been the brunt of jokes, speculation, and criticism about my appearance, and it’s not fun.”
She continues: “When people choose to mock young impressionable females and even more mature national political leaders, it spreads the lie that the value of women resides in their appearance. As women, we should resist the urge to laugh at our sisters, both Democrats and Republicans alike.”
Palin then concludes with a picture of her mom, political animal Sarah Palin, dressed down in running garb and glasses.
