Bristol Palin, It's Time to Collect Your Emmy

Being the son or daughter of a popular political figure has its perks. You can return library books late with zero penalty; if you're hit with a drug possession charge, it can instantly be downgraded to misdemeanor jaywalking; and in the eyes of Hollywood, you are already the most amazing talent ever to walk the Earth.

At least that last part might have been going through the mind of whoever made the decision to cast Bristol Palin in an upcoming episode of ABC Family's The Secret Life of the American Teenager. Because what follows in the video below has got to be one of the most wooden performances since Pinocchio.



According to Wikipedia, Bristol is playing herself, which makes sense since the show is about pregnant teenagers. I don't know Bristol in real life, so who knows. Maybe with her blank stare, robotic face, and all the cue-card reading, she nailed the role. Perhaps the apple doesn't fall too far from the tree.

You see this is what is wrong with America, mothers should be home taking care of their babies not running around with godless TV people in heathen filled Hollywood. What kind of parent would let their grandchild's mother run around like that. Terrible? you betcha!!!!

Her name always makes me smile for 2 reasons, a) I live half an hour away from the original Bristol in England and although I like the place it's not a good city to be named after, b) Bristols is English slang for breasts which is definitely the funnier reason in my opinion!!!
