    I’m sorry but I don’t speak Palan. I tried google translator but it failed me.

  2. Michael McFarland says:

    Palin is one of the last people to make any comments whatsoever. Watch the movie “Game Change” and you’ll see why.

  3. Liz Ernst says:

    The pedophile billionaire our former democrat president has been friends with and hung out with on the pedophiles ‘orgy island’ full of underage girls? huh?

    Hypocricize in public… Get served in public.
    Her 15 min of fame is just about done! After the 16′ elections, the clown bus that she rides on will be done also!

  5. Katherine says:

    Of course she is defending a sick and ignorant family as if her own as it it so like her own. A hypocritical, uneducated, fundamentalist clan.

  6. Kathy Evans says:

    I am sorry.But if one of your kids at 14 did what he did,would you throw him to the wolves.?And the family found out threw the boy himself.Which led the parents to going to the other parents paying for counseling for both!His sisters did not even remember.Not an excuse ,but a reason.2 days before the statute was over,this girl is going for the brass ring.As far as not telling the network,would you? Would you tell anybody?Yes they were on a reality show! Just that real city! None of us are perfect! And God knows as kids we have done some things we are not proud of.Christians are not perfect.And God is aware of that.We do not be.Please find a small piece of forgiveness.And know this isn’t politics.Its someone’s life.That has been ruined.Bruce Jenner gets a program everyone loves!Yet a mistake a child made,is blasted.God forgives us.Check your heart and facts before you cast that stone.

    • It’s not as much about the story being released as the hypocrisy of this family in the judgment of others and their lives.

    • Perhaps the first time it happened, I wouldnt report it. You can just bet that, after two solid years of this happening I would be getting professional help for my daughters AND for my son! This wasnt a one time thing. It wasnt even one girl. IT was multiple girls, over the course of 2.5 years. Jim Duggar lied to his church and told them it was only once, one girl in 2004, after this had been going on for nearly two years. HOW CAN YOU DEFEND HIM>?? His church was a mandated reporter, and they didnt report it because “it was only once and one girl” Now, under Arkansas law, that church is civilly liable for not reporting. Same with the cop friend that they got to give a stern talking to josh…again in 2004, after this had been going on for years. That cop also was a mandated reporter. That cop also says that Jim BOB lied to him and told him it was once . There is no excuse for the Duggars did, and I feel like SPITTING at people like you. You are supporting a child molestor, who, because he did not receive professional treatment, probably still molests. Did you ever stop to think that maybe it “stopped” because he did the typical molestor thing and switched to the youngest daughter? Bah. You make me ill.
      OH, and they did NOT get counselling for their daughters, you fucking brain dead fox fool! The girls got NO treatment, professional or otherwise. Josh Duggar got no professional treatment either. YOu support a family that broke the law, hid it, lied about it to authorities, all to protect their precious show. ON top of that, they raised their molester son to project all his inner self loathing on to gays. You are the worst kind of stupid. There is no excuse for the duggar parents.

      • rewinn says:

        Let us not forget that we are relying on the word of the pervert that he only did five girls, and that he only did it through their clothes except for when he was reading them stories.

        Seriously, I don’t believe criminals tell the truth all the time, and I wonder why the Duggar defenders do.

    • Kevin Hunt says:

      2002- Jim Bob Duggar says “Rape and incest represent heinous crimes and as such should be treated as capital crimes.”

      How is capital punishment ‘forgiveness’?

    • I did some stupid things as a kid (he was actually 14-17), but molesting 5 yr olds isnt one of them.
      And his ‘counseling consisted of a work camp run by a PEDOPHILE and a ‘stern talking to’ by a family friend currently serving time for kiddie porn. No counseling by anyone qualified to do so.
      PS.. Josh Duggar made his living at FRC spreading the lie that LGBT people are pedophiles, while being one himself.
      And what does Jenner have to do with this? She has broken no laws or hurt anyone. An adult doing something you dont like is no comparison to MOLESTING KIDS.

  7. Fred Scrumpy says:

    So if your kid killed someone you would cover it up too? Josh broke the law, not just the law of man but the law of the God they believe in….

  8. Jill Miles says:

    I can’t believe Sarah is not on a rant about Rick Santorum for talking about unwed mothers!

  9. What I love most about this article is the accompanying photo, in which you can clearly see Josh clutching Sarah’s side boob and her looking visibly uncomfortable about it.

  10. Valerie says:

    I can’t believe anyone in their right mind would defend a pedophile . What he did was wrong and his parents who made a lot of money through a show is just as wrong for not saying anything. They are all sick.
    As for casting a stone not happening from me but I’m glad I am not them when judgement day comes to them .

  11. Palan really needs to stop drinking and blogging

What do you think?
