Palin family pratfall: wacky Wasillians?

Palin: n. a name I keep hoping will go away

Pratfall: n. a fall on the buttocks; a humiliating error, failure, or defeat.

The latest buzz from Wasilla is the arrest of Diana Palin, Todd’s half-sister, who TWICE burglarized a Wasilla home for the cash therein.  And wasn’t it the future mother-in-law of Bristol (Levi Johnston’s mom) who was arrested in December for selling OxyContin?

I’m sure there are good people somewhere on the Palin extended family tree, but from the moment many of us encountered Sarah we felt like we’d met someone who’d made a miraculous rise from trailer trash by virtue only of her good looks and ambition.
