Most would regard Bristol Palin's work as a spokesperson for Candie's Foundation abstinence crusade as admirable given her background. She has the ability - as someone who made a poor decision that has had far reaching implications - to reach young girls that someone else simply does not.
In fact, you could almost say it's a blessing there are people like Bristol who are willing to acknowledge their mistakes as mistakes rather than parading around accusing others of "judging her."
But what most would find admirable, the left finds abominable. Take Keith Olbermann's pathetic rant that attacked Bristol's work as hypocritical and wrong for example.
It is not surprising that Olbermann would attack her. Anything with the word "Palin" attached to it is enough to make the MSNBC drama queen see red. But the best part of the story is actually Bristol's response to Keith.

What Mr. Olbermann lacks in originality he makes up for with insincere incredulity. Mr. Olbermann fails to understand that in order to have credibility as a spokesperson, it sometimes takes a person who has made mistakes. Parents warn their children about the mistakes they made so they are not repeated. Former gang members travel to schools to educate teenagers about the risks of gang life. Recovered addicts lecture to others about the risks of alcohol and drug abuse. And yes, a teen mother talks about the benefits of preventing teen pregnancy.
I have never claimed to be perfect. If that makes me the "worst person in the world" to Mr. Olbermann, then I must apologize for not being absolutely faultless like he undoubtedly must be.
Well said by Ms. Palin. This type of stupidity from the left is nothing new. It's the same illogic they use when blasting Christians who have sinned for standing against sin. To them, rather that attempting to maintain moral standards and failing on occasion to live up to them, it is preferable to simply have no standards at all. Thus explains the entire persona that is Keith Olbermann.
