So many things happening in this sentence. Okay, just two. But they’re both pretty awesome. Listen, I’m not a fan of the Palins, but this story made me have a little respect for Bristol Palin.
After hanging onto a mechanical bull for dear life at West Hollywood’s Saddle Ranch, the crowd cheered her on before she eventually fell off. Bristol Palin riding a mechanical bull would’ve been enough of a story, but that’s just the beginning.
After she gets bucked off, someone in the crowd yells, “Did you ride Levi like that?” which was a pretty bold thing to say, but not as bold as the follow up comment: “You’re mother is a whore!”
I’ve never seen a political fight in a bar. It got pretty ugly and trashy. Imagine ‘The O’Reilly Factor’ with a mechanical bull.
“Woah! What? What was that about?” a member of Bristol’s crew asked the guy who yelled. The perpetrator responded: “Oh please, 'what was that about?' Her mother’s a whore. She’s the f-cking devil.”
Instead of walking off with her tail between her legs, Bristol confronted the guy. I really, really wanted this to end with her breaking off a bottle and shanking him. That didn’t happen, but it did end up in a pretty ugly shouting match.
Bristol walked up to the bar, where the guy was sitting. And he was ready.
“You’re mother’s a whore!” he repeated. Gotta love those Saddle Ranch tequila shots.
“Why is my mother a whore?” Bristol asked, pretty calmly, might I add. The guy’s response?
“She lives. She breathes. If there was a hell, she will be there.”
Alright, look. Not everyone is a Sarah Palin fan, but this is a bit much. Still, Bristol had it coming, for having the guts to show up in West Hollywood. Not because it’s the gay/liberal capital of the world, but because there are also some seriously crazy people there. This situation is actually pretty normal for WeHo. Seriously, I think they guy in this video is the same dude who yelled at me for “giving his dog the eye” when I was walking down the street the other day.
But anyway, Bristol asks the guy why he thinks her mom’s going to hell.
“You want her dead?”
“You know what? She’s evil.”
“Is it because you’re a homosexual?” Bristol asks.
“Pretty much…” the guy responds. “And why’d you say I’m a homosexual?”
Really, that's offensive? He just said her mother has sex for money and will spend her afterlife in a pit of fire where she'll be eternally tortured. But he's offended because she assumed he likes men?
“Because I can tell you are, that’s your boyfriend right there,” Bristol says, pointing to an innocent bystander at the bar who looks like he’s just trying to mind his own business and drown in his loneliness.
“That’s not my boyfriend. Your mom is evil. She’s created poison in this entire world.” the guy continues. A friend of Bristol’s comes up and then asks, “How old are you?” The guy flips out, gets in her face and screams, “FOURTY SEVEN YEARS OLD!”
From there, Bristol and the middle aged guy with an obvious drinking problem get into a somewhat mild-mannered debate. Until he and Cliff Clavin threaten her. He yells, “you’re f-cking white trash from Wasilla. Your mother ran the city into a f-cking grave. F-ck you, you f-cking bitch.” Bristol’s crew then escorted her out of the club.
And his is why I never go anywhere in Hollywood.
