OK, it's the Daily Mail, and I don't often dumbster-dive into the tabloid stew, but this article--if even remotely true--is just chock full of too-good-to-ignore nuggets:

Mama Grizzly strikes again: Sarah Palin 'furious' at Bristol's new Disney Show star boyfriend

Mounting evidence that Sarah Palin may have bought a $1.7 million home in Arizona has sparked speculation she will run for president next year.

But it seems the real reason for the move could be more personal - to keep tabs on her daughter, Bristol.

The Tea Party politician is reportedly furious at the 20-year-old's new relationship with Disney's Kyle Massey, who she met on Dancing with the Stars last year.

This line made me laugh out loud:

[Palin] is apparently convinced it will affect her family's reputation, as Bristol is on the rebound from her ex-boyfriend, Alaskan pipeline worker Gino Paoletti.

What, their image might be improved?

A source told the magazine: 'Sarah is furious at Bristol for going so quickly from man to man.

Apparently she didn't mind her kid getting knocked up at 16, though.

Here's an interesting bit:

Bristol has become increasingly liberal since she moved to Los Angeles to appear on Dancing with the Stars last year.

At the time an insider told the Enquirier: 'Bristol is completely rebelling against her mother - now that she's experiencing life outside of Alaska and away from Sara.

'She has opened her eyes and realised how sheltered and programmed she was.'

Let's hope this is true, and that it continues (and isn't just a "kid rebelling against their parents" phase). If Bristol actually wakes up and truly realizes how utterly full of shit her mom (and the entire teabagger/GOP mindset) is, my level of respect for her might go up from 0% to 5% or so.

Oh, and what exactly is Palin's problem with her daughters' new beau?

Well, the article doesn't really say, but for those (such as myself) who have never watched "Dancing with the Stars", here's a pic  of the couple...I'll leave it up to you to decide what could possibly account for Sarah Palin's opinion...

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
