This just might be the dumbest, pettiest attack from a Palin yet—which is really saying something.
"I think [Michele Bachmann] dresses a lot like my mom," Bristol tells me. "But a lot, a lot of women have done that the last few years. I do think it's odd, you know, seeing people with red blazers with their hair up with glasses."
Bristol added a giggle before continuing her thought about Bachmann, a Congresswoman from Minnessota. "I don't know if she's wearing glasses but you want to be hummmm, do you think that people don't notice you're dressing like my mom?"
Uh, Bristol? I know you and your mom have trademarked your names for "educational" purposes, but I don't think your mom invented that whole wearing red thing. In fact, I'm sure there are at least a few women who embraced red jackets first.
Like Secretary of State Madeleine Albright:
And First Lady/Senator/Secretary of State/long-time wearer of red/troops-supporter Hillary Clinton:
And the once and future Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, seated with Assistant to the President/Future Senator of Massachusetts Elizabeth Warren:
And of course this woman, who was already "copying" the Palin look on Super Tuesday in 2008:
Nice try, Bristol. But, true to Palin family tradition, this latest word salad is just another FAIL.
