Poor Tripp Palin. Pity the child of an unwed mother born into a family of criminals, grifters and lowlife.
One granny abused her power as Governor. The other just sold Hillbilly Heroin. Grandpa's had his own legal troubles and unsavory associations (and for those of you who are outraged by such things, he's a Union Member in good standing.)
Throw in Great-Aunt Diana's burglary bust and Great-Uncle James' criminal driving record. Season well with unproven rumor and juicy innuendo. Then add to all that family business the fact that Tripp's Mommy is using him as a weapon against his Father and you have all the makings of a tragic childhood.
Is it time to call Social Services? Who could have imagined the Governor's Mansion as a broken home?
