This just in: Bristol Palin sets up a PR shop

Bristol Palin (Reuters/Eric Thayer)

So why has Bristol Palin launched her own public relations business? Admittedly, the 19-year-old daughter of Sarah Palin has no business experience -- hey, she does have her high school diploma -- but apparently is ready to tackle a career: BSMP (stands for Bristol Sharon Marie Palin) LLC will provide publicity, lobbying and political consulting services. Papers for the business were filed in September. The teen mom already serves as ambassador for the pro-abstinence Candie's Foundation.

Good for Ms. Palin. Of course, this article has a snarky comment about her having a high school diploma. With the mess the "Harvard grad." in the WH has this country in, any smart person would stay away from any comment about education. Many very successful people are not highly educated, they are just very smart and have a huge supply of common sense.

This is how PR people get a bad name. What's her experience? Watching her mother muddle through poorly staged events?

Sometimes I wish this country were actually a pure meritocracy. This is one of those times.

Lindemann777, I didn't know you were forced to do business with her. Good to know. Will there be a federal fine if you don't?

If you think she's a joke then dont hire her. What would the critics prefer that she do? ... Sit at home eating bonbons while collecting food stamps, welfare, and any other taxpayer funded public assistance? If she succeeds, she succeeds. If she fails she fails.

True enough. She should have the same opportunity to try that everyone else does. I would imagine that any demand for her services might not be entirely due to the quality of those services, though.

Boy, Bristol Palin is someone whose PR advice I would really, really want. That's like asking a 19 year old single mom about how to abstain from sex. Whoops, actually,.... it is just like that.

Having the Palins as spokespersons for abstinence is like having Gilbert Arenas as spokesperson for the Brady Bill.
