According to former governor Mike Huckabee, Bristol Palin was scheduled to be on his radio talk show last night to discuss the premiere of her new reality show, “Life’s a Tripp.” When Palin didn’t appear during her guest spot, Huckabee launched into a mini-tirade:
We had earlier in the hour that Bristol Palin would be joining us about a new reality t.v. show that she’s going to be doing.
And apparently, she just didn’t show up.
So guess what? I don’t guess we’ll be watching tomorrow when her new show lines up.
Wow. Very mature, governor. Are you gonna threaten to hold your breath, too?
Palin told a different story. In her blog post, she wrote that she was never even made aware that she was supposed to appear on Huckabee’s show.
I would’ve considered it an honor to talk to his viewers about my show, my experience of single motherhood, and what a wonderful little boy Tripp is.
But the fact is, his people didn’t schedule my appearance. I’d said I’d do the show, I sent them my phone number, and they apparently neglected to schedule a time. Of course, mix-ups do occur in life. Schedules aren’t communicated, errors are made.
But this isn’t the first mistake on his show. Maybe instead of lecturing me on being irresponsible, he should get his own team in line.
Then, maybe, we could talk.
But I probably would just call Rush instead.
Oh, snap! Be sure to read the whole thing to get the full picture of Huckabee’s bitter foot-stompage.
Naturally — it is a day ending in ‘y,’ after all — Palin took some heat for having the nerve to defend herself against the whiny governor.
Bristol Palin stood Huckabee up. He duplicated the effect of interviewing her by hitting himself on the head with a mallet for 1/2 an hour.

Fortunately for her, most of the tweets on the subject were tweets of support.

Classless Huckabee…this sounds just like his artificial style: Attacks Gov Palin's daughter for his staff's mistake http://t.co/Nem7Ecmw

Bristol managed to emerge from The Great Scolding relatively unscathed. When it comes to “Life’s a Tripp,” though, she is unlikely to escape the left’s wrath so easily. With hours still left before the show debuts, Palin-haters have already begun firing their vile opening salvos:
Anyone who plans on watching Bristol Palin's new reality show disgusts me.

Bristol Palin has proven that she is less talented than Snooki and more of whore than her mom.

Bristol Palin has as much to offer society as a used condom, except you know, working to not have a bastard son.

Ah, yes. If there’s one thing we’ve come to be able to depend on, it’s the left’s ability to take the low road and make it even lower. They’ve become quite adept at carving out twisted paths with all their serpentine slithering.
“Life’s a Tripp” premieres tonight on Lifetime at 10 p.m. Be sure to check back with Twitchy for coverage of the inevitable barrage of nasty reactions.
