Sarah Palin posted on Facebook today, making veiled references to the drunken hillbilly brawl in which her family was involved. Multiple eyewitness accounts have been heard, but one thing that is missing is video of Wasil-Mania.
While accounts slightly differ, with some saying the fight occurred as a result of Track Palin making crude comments to female attendees, and others claiming that the brawl began after an argument between Track and an ex-boyfriend of his sister’s, the witnesses generally agree that:
- The fight did, indeed occur.
- The Palins were, in fact, involved.
- Bristol Palin attacked the host.
- Sarah Palin screamed something to the tune of “Don’t you know who I am?” before flinging herself into the fray.
Only one “witness” disputes the numerous eyewitness accounts — an unnamed “friend” of the Palin family, who says that the Quitta family are victims in this mess, that they were attacked, and that Sarah was simply in “Mama Grizzly” mode defending her family.
The Palin family has largely avoided even acknowledging the conflict occurred, but Sarah Palin has finally said…something…via Facebook. Palin still did not directly address the incident, but said that she is proud of her daughter, and that her “kids’ defense of family makes her heart soar!”
“As you can imagine, they and my extended family have experienced so many things (liberal media-driven) that may have crushed others without a strong foundation of faith, and I’m thankful for our friends’ prayer shield that surrounds them, allowing faith to remain their anchor,” she continued. “Thank you, prayer warriors! I love you!”
Palin linked to a short blog post by her daughter tacking “rumors” that her parents are divorcing. “Most of what the media reports about our family is complete garbage,” wrote Bristol Palin.
Still, no video has surfaced of the brawl that has captured the curiosity of much of America.
