I have come to the conclusion that the blog My Life as Willow Palin is a fake. It is not written by Willow Palin. Two things convinced me of this. One: The writer is trying too hard. Exhibit A: This post from today, which features "Willow" answering accusations of racism from her commenters:
I cannot belivie people are calling me racist? my mom told me they would even show one black person on tv tonight and did they? yes they did, so how can I be racist? diddy is the one who said their is no black people in alaska, which is not true. I treat those kind of people with respect, i let them talk to me, sit near me, so how am I racist? People trying to smear me, yes i’ve learned about that, i am not as dumb as some people…you know who you are….
Sorry, but no...I don't believe Willow Palin wrote that. I believe it was composed by someone who is trying to make trouble. I don't believe, in this era of tightly-controlled campaigns and professional image makers, that a vice presidential nominee's 13-year-old daughter would be allowed to post things like this. I think, if Willow wanted to have a blog, she would basically have to have all the posts approved by some media expert before they could be published.
And then there's the second thing: Earlier today, after I posted my initial blog on the Lindsay Lohan v. Willow Palin flap, I noticed in my sitemeter stats a hit from the admin page of My Life as Willow Palin. What city did the hit register from? Los Angeles, California. Why in fuck would Willow Palin be updating her blog from L.A. when they're all in St. Paul? Is she connecting through a proxy? The most common proxy is the one that goes through Google and that shows up as Mountain View, California. I suppose it's possible that Willow Palin's blog updating is being routed through L.A. and that Willow is posting crazy responses to people's accusations of racism but...sorry, I don't buy it.
