Hot Post: Olby: Pervert or Puritan on Palins and Sex? Meltdown with Keith Olbermann Part 55

For 20 years before that, he wrote book, movie and concert reviews as a stringer for the Flint Journal, a midsize daily newspaper.

This popular post was originally published December 2, 2010.

The media loves any story that has to do with the Palins and sex.  Especially Bristol Palin, famously an unwed mother,  though sometimes the comments veer toward underage Willow.

Journalists do everything but hang a scarlet A on the girl, who has shown remarkable poise throughout– other than briefly considering committing her life to Levi Johnston again.  Of course, the media makes a commitment to Levi every chance it gets.

Of course, at its core– besides Palin Derangement Syndrome of a particularly perverse strain– is the notion that only people with standards should be held to any.  So, since Bristol Palin’s beliefs say she shouldn’t do what she did, it’s open season.

If only the perfect are allowed to preach, then sinners don’t have to worry about ever being confronted with their actions.

And to enforce that sub-standard, Keith Olbermann does this at every opportunity:

OLBERMANN ON BRISTOL PALIN APPEARING IN AN ABSTINENCE PSA: SHE’S the Candies’ spokesperson for abstinence?  She and her SON?  Because it‘s got to work THIS time?

There might be room for irony, if, say, it were Paris Hilton or Lindsay Lohann, and there had not been the requisite time to prove a lifestyle change.  But since I’m pretty sure Keith Olbermann is not enforcing a Biblical sexual standard, take a look at the leering video –there are only two explanations:  Pure hatred or impure obsession.

OLBERMANN: But our winner, Bristol Palin.  She has done a public service announcement with this The Situation guy from TV‘s “Jersey Shore.”  It‘s about abstinence and safe sex.  Sadly, it is not a spoof done by “The Onion.”  (BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

MIKE SORRENTINO, “JERSEY SHORE”: B-Palin, are you seriously—you‘re not going to hook up like before you‘re married, for real?


SORRENTINO: For real for real?

PALIN: For real for real for real?  (END VIDEO CLIP)

OLBERMANN: SHE’S the Candies’ spokesperson for abstinence?  She and her SON?  Because it‘s got to work THIS time?  This is like saying George Bush kept us safe, except for that 9/11 thing which doesn‘t count.  Bristol Palin, abstinence role model, this time, today‘s Worst Person in the World.

Tomorrow’s Worst Person Bill W.

“HE’S the organization’s spokesman for sobriety?  HE and his LIVER?  Don’t drink ANYMORE…?”

But even that is not fair.  Bristol Palin was by no account the town pump.  She was not known for being promiscuous.  She made the mistake millions of young people who thought they were in love made; and her every instinct since then has been to try to do the right thing, however imperfectly because… well… she is a human being!

It’s not just that any reasonable journalistic operation would can a guy for this, it’s that I am seriously creeped out by guys older than me who take this level of interest in the sex life of someone younger than my daughter…

But then we live in a world where The Atlantic still employs Andrew Sullivan.
