      went into the military either.  Guess he either strongly disagrees with his parents in general or there's some really dirty laundry Spalin wants to keep in the hamper.  Or both.

      But it IS very odd that she never refers to him...doesn't make a big deal about being a soldier's mother ad nauseum.

        our Freedoms.  However, I remembered drug use being mentioned during the campaign and Googled the following:

        The ENQUIRER has learned exclusively that Sarah's oldest son, Track, was addicted to the power drug OxyContin for nearly the past two years, snorting it, eating it, smoking it and even injecting it.

        “I’ve partied with him (Track) for years,” a source disclosed.  “I’ve seen him snort cocaine, snort and smoke OxyContin, drink booze and smoke weed.”

        The source also divulged the girls would do anything for Track and he’d use his local celebrity status to manipulate other guys “to get them to steal things he wanted.”

        “He finally did what a lot of troubled kids here do,” the source divulged. “You join the military.”

        ...another family friend revealed pre-prego Bristol was as much of a hard partier as Track was.

        “Bristol was a huge stoner and drinker.  I’ve seen her smoke pot and get drunk and make out with so many guys. All the guys would brag that the just made out with Bristol.”

      •  Remember his September 11 deployment that (0+ / 0-)

        really wasn't a deployment?  And, yeah, the report about his going into the military for not so much noble reasons.  Then he was out.
