We’ve heard the Palins speaking to police about the drunken birthday party brawl that has provided us all with a laugh or twelve, but what does her former running mate think of it? Well, unsurprisingly, McCain blames everything on the “liberal media.”
“I think these are family affairs,” McCain said Friday. “Things happen in people’s families and I’m not excusing it, I’m not condemning it.” McCain did not voice his opinion on the actual 20-person brawl that everyone but the Palins says was started by the Palins.
Bristol Palin, who left her five-year-old in the family’s stretch Hummer while she got trashed, explained that party host Korey Klingenmeyer “came out of nowhere and pushes me on the ground… takes me by my feet, in my dress… my thong dress in front of everybody. Come on you c**t, get the f**k outta here! Come on you s**t get the f**k outta here.”
Her brother Track, who is said to be the root of the problems that night, claimed that the brawl started when a “father and son team” jumped his friend Steve, who is “basically gay, but he’s not,” from behind. Track Palin also claims that that same “team” hit him in the back of the head, somehow injuring his eye.
Numerous witnesses, however, dispute the Palins’ claims, saying that members of the family were acting drunk and belligerent, causing nothing but problems since they arrived.
McCain is upset with the “liberal media” for reporting this information. “I just know that the kind of coverage that this got, in my view, is in keeping with the kind of coverage the liberals have accorded to Sarah Palin for a number of years, which in my view, is biased and unfair and sometimes unacceptable,” he said.
