Bristol Palin: ‘Hillary fears my mom’s power’ because she mentioned her name in an email
Bristol Palin (Jaguar PS /

Alerted to a reference to her mom's name in a Hillary Clinton email, the daughter of Sarah Palin took it a step further suggesting the former Secretary of State "fears my mom’s power."

Writing on her blog, Bristol Palin -- the eldest and most high-profile of the former half-governor's children-- said that an email dated four and a half years ago shows "that she [Clinton] is terrified of my mom!"

In the email in question, Clinton reached out to an aide to discover who made a decision at the State Department to begin using "parent one and two" instead of "mother and father" in communications, saying she it was a decision she disagreed with. Clinton said she wasn't interested in facing a "huge Fox-generated media storm led by Palin et al."

Seeing her mother's name in print resulted in Bristol --a single mother and former paid abstinence advocate -- to venture a guess that Clinton might have more "traditional" views on marriage -- despite the fact that the then-Secretary of State was talking about her department's terminology and not her personal views.

"Hillary’s greatest hits just keep coming… and this time, they reveal that she is terrified of my mom!" Palin wrote. "First of all, Hillary Clinton, the great tolerant one with rainbow Twitter avatars granting open-mindedness to any family formation under the sun, seems a bit more traditional in private than she does in public."

"One might call it hypocritical if it didn’t come across as so focused on self-preservation instead of any actual policy stance, Palin continued. "But this is just more of the same of what we’ve come to expect from Hillary Clinton. Does she actually believe anything or is she just seeking power and trying to avoid embarrassment?"

"Liberals like Hillary Clinton would have you believe all sorts of lies about my mother. But, behind closed doors, we find out all sorts of truths, including the fact that Hillary fears my mom’s power," Palin wrote before adding "millions of Americans know that what my mom talks about in public is right and what Hillary pretends to stand for is wrong."

Previously Palin defended her own non-traditional family situation -- two pregnancies by two different men without the benefit of marriage - calling her critics "giddy a$$holes."
