Bristol Palin Strikes Back at Olbermann: 'Sorry We Can't All Be As Perfect As You'

December 3rd, 2010 1:11 AM

As NewsBusters previously reported, MSNBC's Keith Olbermann pathetically attacked Bristol Palin on Monday for being the Candie's Foundation's abstinence spokesperson.

On Thursday, Miss Palin struck back via Facebook:

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.

As NewsBusters pointed out Tuesday, Olbermann is far from faultless as Miss Palin's connection to the Candie's Foundation is now almost nineteen months old making Olbermann's point even more preposterous.

Sadly, that's par for the course for this MSNBCer.
