Palin Family Circus News - Tuesday, August 31, 2010

In case you missed it, here is last night's big announcement:

Did Bristol take a style cue from Michelle Obama? The belt? What will the palinbots think of that?

Bristol isn't going to be wearing any skimpy outfits. No."Bristol plans to wear the 'most modest outfits' on DWTS," has:
Bristol Palin might be stepping out of her comfort zone this season on Dancing With the Stars, but she won’t be stepping into any of the show’s skimpy costumes.

“I think I will be the most dressed [contestant and have] the most modest outfits for sure because that’s who I am,” she told PEOPLE Monday night in Los Angeles at the announcement of the show’s new cast. ...

... “I have no experience in dance,” [Bristol] says. “But I come from an athletic background, so I’m thankful for that. [I played] basketball, volleyball, soccer, everything.” As for temporarily relocating from Alaska to Los Angeles for the show, Bristol is still adjusting. “I feel like I’m melting,” she says. “It’s so hot here and there’s so much traffic.” –Melody Chiu

The Wall Street Journal's Speakeasy blog has posted a video, writing:
The web site Funny or Die has made excellent comedic use of footage of Sarah Palin playing the flute to create a segment of “Betwixt the Music” that focuses on an imagined collaboration between Alaskan singer/songwriter Jewel and the state’s former governor. As told by the “Behind the Music” narrator, the pair met at a venue in Wasilla called The Crab and Coffee and were soon jamming at “The Dojo,” Palin’s storage shed/rehearsal studio decorated with posters of Bob Marley and Ronald Reagan.
Here it is:

Meghan McCain's book about the 2008 campaign is out. In "Sarah Palin caused 'stress, drama, panic' on campaign trail, says John McCain's daughter Meghan," we read:
... In her new book "Dirty Sexy Politics," Meghan McCain says Palin brought "stress, drama, complications, panic and loads of uncertainty" to the campaign.

"She was not just an overnight success or even a political Cinderella story," McCain writes in an excerpt obtained by ABC News. "She was a sudden, freakishly huge, full-fledged phenomenon. It seemed too much. And it seemed too easy."

Speaking out about the former Alaska Gov. for the first time, McCain admits she once wondered if her father's loss "was Sarah Palin's fault." ...

Meghan McCain appeared today on "Good Morning America." She has a website, McCainBlogette, and she is a columnist for The Daily Beast, here.

Breaking News: Lisa Murkowsi concedes to Joe Miller. The Anchorage Daily News has a story, too.

Levi Johnston met Meghan McCain. It was in the "hair room," at the Republican convention in 2008. You can read about it, here, in Vanity Fair. That's an interesting story, and I know that Levi has said that he didn't tell the whole truth about the Palins, then said he's never lied, but at the end of the "hair room" episode there is this:

[A representative for Meghan McCain called Levi’s account a “naïve mischaracterization.”]

The whole article is a series of episodes about Levi's life with the Palins. Snowbilly read the article very carefully and concluded that it had been fact checked, because the magazine asked for Meghan McCain's side of the "hair room" episode. Even more interesting, though, is this: Nobody pushed back over Levi's account of the other episodes, unless the magazine failed to note the disagreement as they did for the "hair room" story.
