Bristol Palin turns 21 today. I want to wish her a happy birthday. I used to think of her as just another teen who made a bad choice and fell for the ultimate bad news boyfriend, and then had the bad luck to get thrust into a highly antagonistic media spotlight. Which made me feel a bit sorry for her.
I turned into a Bristol “fan” after Dancing With The Stars showed her mettle. She’s quiet, determined, ambitious, and won’t take crap from anybody. Something tells me the rest of America saw that when she confronted that heckler in LA.
In a culture that is all too gleeful about attacking girls and women, Bristol is a great role model.
So, have a wonderful birthday, Bristol, and good luck in all you do!
