Bristol Palin: Graduation Girl!

Bristol Palin: Graduation Girl!

Bristol Palin, wearing a necklace of Blow-Pop lollipops, picks up her high school diploma as she walks across the stage at Wasilla Sports Complex in Wasilla, Alaska on Thursday night (May 14).

“I knew it would be hard work, but I knew I was going to do it,” Bristol, 19, tells People.

Bristol, whose mom is Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, was “point zero-zero-something” away from graduating with Honors (she had a 3.497 G.P.A.). She says she hopes to go to an area college for a two-year business degree and then a job, possibly in real estate.

Pictured below: Bristol at the Candie’s Foundation town hall meeting on teen pregnancy prevention at TheTimesCenter on May 6 in New York City. (Bristol has separated from boyfriend Levi Johnston — they have a 4-month-old son Tripp.)

OMG! Who gives two shizts about this girl????
I can’t stand anything that has the name Palin attatched to it, and especially this one!

# 2

When did a 3.497 become honors? and the language…”point something something…”
She’ll go far in the world..or somethin’ somethin’ like tthat…

Congrats! At least she graduated! A lot of teen mothers don’t. I hope she goes on to achieve her goals and continue to support her son.

# 4

she looks like miley cyrus

# 5

#2, a 3.5 is honors, I believe. She clearly stated she was “point something something” away from graduating with honors. Not that I’m a fan of the Palins, but please, do learn to read and comprehend.

With all the drama with her Mom and Levi and a newborn, I’d say that was pretty good. Good job, Bristol. I gave a rent-free home to 5 teen moms while they studied for GED’s, NOT one finished.

Congrats Bristol!

What a great role model???? NOT! she get’s pregnant at 17 yrs old! way to follow mom’s rules! She apparently was irresponsible and didn’t protect herself! duh! She graduates High School at 19! I graduated at 17 and was off to a 4 yr degree! Bristol wants just a 2 yr associates degree? way to aim high! lol. You’re white trash just like the rest of your redneck family! Palin’s are under achievers! They suck a$$!

You guys are all so brainwashed by the media, thinking Sarah Palin and her whole family are messed up and stupid…it’s the media that’s screwed up, so liberal and ******** with everyone’s brains. Believe me, if Palin had run alongside Obama, all of you would WORSHIP her, just like you worship Obama and are completely bind to the fact that he is destroying the United States. It’s an accomplishment for Bristol to have graduated, many teen mothers drop out of school. It’s also honorable that she kept her baby instead of having an abortion. Congratulations, Bristol!

# 9

And have you guys forgotten that there are almost a million teenagers getting pregnant each year? She’s obviously not the only one, and who can blame another for making a mistake? But just because she’s Sarah palin’s daughter you guys think that you can trash her…

she’s graduating at 19?? Isn’t that a little old to just graduate high school?

good for her dumping that doofus

Palin will the be the 1st Female VP or even first FEMALE PRES.

Good for her! She’s not promoting that she got pregnant, and if you had seen any of her interviews you could understand where she was coming from. Everything she says is realistic, and for that I give her props! :)

IT’S REALLY NOT THAT HARD to get a high school diploma people!! you do the work and you graduate…. and i agree #1

Good for her. She didn’t let being a teen mom hold her back. She will go on to get a degree and a job. And she will be one less teen mom we would have to support with our tax dollars. She is a roll model to all the teen moms out there. Get an education and take care of you and yours.

WOW!! a 2-year degree…she really has set the bar high for herself (rolling eyes). In todays economy and job market I wonder how far she thinks a 2-year degree is gonna get her. Obvious white trash.

I may not like her mother or families politics but I am glad that her family supported her and hopefully helped her so that she could complete high school instead of being a dropout single young mother. I wish the girl success in life.

# 8- could not agree more! it’s good to know there are non-liberals that actually have a brain out there!

Oh congratulations white trash!!!!

A little ditty, Redneck style:
Bristol Paling sitting on a tree

#16 Actually there alot of jobs out there that pay very good with just having a two year degree. So she could actually do very well.

Obama would never be stupid enough to even consider that dopey Sarah Palin for any job. She is a disgrace to any intelligent, educated woman and will never ever be anything important in this country.

Best Wishes to her daughter and her little son. this family is fodder for the tabloids and the mom is such an idiot.

@g!na:

Did your Mom ever run for Vice-President of the United States. Were you ever able to participate in a national campaign for pres and vp, the experiences, people she has met, opportunities, PRICELESS

brag away little girl!
