Bristol Palin Hits Keith Olbermann Worst Person Selection Video

There is a mini war going on between Dancing with the Stars Season 11 contestant and teen mother Bristol Palin and Keith Olbermann after the MSNBC host selected Sarah Palin’s eldest daughter to be the “Worst Person In The World” for becoming a spokesperson for abstinence with the Candies Foundation.

Earlier this week Mr Olbermann who was recently suspended for making several donations to Democratic politicians pocked fun at Miss Palin saying:

“That’s like saying George Bush kept us safe, except for that 9/11 thing!”

Palin who has a habit of reloading and recharging like her mother on Facebook at those who dare to criticize her family or their political-business wrote a long piece on her blog where she blasted Olbermann. She said:

Recently, a left wing commentator named Keith Olbermann attacked me for being a spokesperson for abstinence education and for being an Ambassador for the Candies Foundation, which promotes teen pregnancy awareness and prevention education. He went so far as to call me “the worst person” he knows, apparently, for my efforts to educate teenagers about the real world risks of premarital sex.
Accusing me of hypocrisy is by now, an old canard. What Mr. Olbermann lacks in originality he makes up for with insincere incredulity. Mr. Olbermann fails to understand that in order to have credibility as a spokesperson, it sometimes takes a person who has made mistakes. Parents warn their children about the mistakes they made so they are not repeated. Former gang members travel to schools to educate teenagers about the risks of gang life. Recovered addicts lecture to others about the risks of alcohol and drug abuse. And yes, a teen mother talks about the benefits of preventing teen pregnancy.

I have never claimed to be perfect. If that makes me the “worst person in the world” to Mr. Olbermann, then I must apologize for not being absolutely faultless like he undoubtedly must be.

To Mr. Olbermann let me say this: you can attack me all you want. But you will not stop me from getting my message out about teen pregnancy prevention. And one day, if you ever have a daughter, you may change your mind about me.

Bristol Palin

Who is right in this story? Miss Palin is now officially a public figure, shouldn’t she have thick skin and accept criticisms when they are tossed her way?

Or maybe the almighty Keith Olbermann should pick on someone his own size like Glenn Beck or Bill O’Reilly.
