I had my own run-in with a liberal wacko in the post Bristol Palin's Blog: Responding to the Viral Sensation, Loving my Brother.
You see, it all started with Bristol's post asking Obama to call her:
Bristol Palin's Blog: Mr. President, When Should I Expect Your Call?
Nice Deb has a post up that shares the details about the media frenzy over Bristol's now gone viral request.
There are over 360 comments in the thread where I posted two comments. Fortunately, most of the comments at the blog are uplifting and positive towards Bristol's essays. But as usual, there are liberal leftist haters who just can't resist mocking and spewing their hatred towards her and her family. Here is a copy of my brief conversation with a Palin hater:

Really, Bristol? It is so telling that all you care about is the number of times your post has been read or shared. “Viral beyond my wildest dreams.” SMH Don’t you have more important things to do than make up this fake outrage, and allow yourself to be used by your mother’s political staff? Yikes.
Everyone is entitled to their opinions, but there is no need for you to pimp out your son and disabled brother while expressing them. Having a disabled family member does not insulate you from disagreement or criticism. Certainly they are beautiful kids and nobody with a heart would say anything negative about them, but that doesn’t mean you need to keep bringing them up. I know you are getting what you want by inserting yourself into the public discourse this way – ATTENTION. I also know you won’t take this good advice, but you should: go to school, get educated, be a good mother, and keep your child out of the public eye.

Let me share my opinion about everything else you wrote in your comment “Gilly.”
You pretend to know the motivation behind Bristol’s exclamation that her post “went viral.” Is it possible that she was happy that her message went further than this blog so that it will help educate more and more people about this particular issue? Claiming that Bristol’s outrage is “fake” looks like your attempt to just demean her views. Your nasty “pimp” comment is only designed to hurt her. My guess? Your silly accusations absolutely fall flat.
Gilly Mac wrote, “Certainly they are beautiful kids and nobody with a heart would say anything negative about them, but that doesn’t mean you need to keep bringing them up.”
I agree with you that “anyone with a heart would not say anything negative about them.” But we live in the real world. Children who are verbally abused and made fun of – for whatever reason – NEED to be brought to the attention of society at large for the simple reason that they NEED DEFENDING.
I don’t have a disabled child, but I worked with a family who had a severely disabled child (back when I was in high school). There was a technique called “patterning” back then which was an experiment to help the child regain motor skills. Unfortunately, it didn’t work. I heard only a few years later that cute, drooling, smiling, little disabled boy died. It broke my heart. Those few weeks of contact with him and his family changed my heart forever.
So you see, Gilly Mac, there is a purpose involved here with Bristol’s attempt to bring awareness on several issues…including her Downs Syndrome little brother, her teenage pregnancy and birth, and her advocacy against the terrible and degrading misogynist “jokes” that Bill Maher spews. Calling out Obama on his former claim that children of political persons should be “off limits” (except if the child is from a conservative or Republican family) is a great point to make. It shows the blaring hypocrisy that often lives in the leftists of this nation. It is very unfortunate.
I congratulate Bristol for having the courage to speak her mind on this and other issues. Keep up the great work young lady and don’t ever let the naysayers get you down.
For someone like you, “Gilly Mac,” to lecture her on what she should and should not say is hypocritical and demonstrates that you have a liberal leftist mindset that wants to shut out the free speech efforts of those with whom you disagree.

LOL. Bristol has the right to speak, just as I have the right to disagree. They are BOTH our free speech rights. Sadly, Bristol is certainly not writing these, so we’re all just playing into Sarah Palin’s ego. The Palin’s love to attack people, and then when called on it, play the victim (like putting gun sights on Gabrielle Giffords back, and then when she is shot and nearly killed, make a self-righteous video about POOR YOU). Here, Bristol seems content to use her son and disabled brother to gain some sort of sympathy for herself. The President has defended the Palin children in the past. However, it is not his problem if they keep trying to be pseudo celebrities at ever turn. When conservatives start condemning the incredible amount of hatefulness and bigotry coming from “their side,” then they’ll have a moral leg to stand on. Instead, they whine, and point to Bill Maher and yell, “He said mean stuff, too!!!” Please spare us. People might take the Palin’s seriously if Sarah Palin

Thanks for coming back and proving my point with your latest diatribe. You have just added even more lies (e.g. the Gabrielle Giffords whopper) to your previous hate filled rant. I suggest that you stop getting your brainwashing propaganda points from places like “Media Matters.” The ugliness that you continue to spew only makes you look mean, foolish, pathetic, bigoted, sad and uninformed about the real world.
A commentator named John Frank had a good response:
