What a week! Drunken brawl, witness who dares to talk about it gets fired, it spreads to mass media and now the spin is on! From an Alaskan’s point of view, the McKenna brothers will most likely feel the affect of their actions towards Mr Townsend or Mr Thompson, who ever in a negative way. I’ll let you know closer to IronDog time. The headlines where everywhere! Heck, it’s still hanging on to the news cycle.

Here it comes — the PALIN SPIN
But with The Washington Post, “Good Morning America,” the New York Times and dozens of other media outlets all filing reports on the incident over the last few days, it’s clear that there’s a high level of interest in the events that transpired on that regrettable night in Anchorage.

But RealClearPolitics spoke with a source close to the Palin family, who wanted to provide their version of the events in question.
It’s a tale as old as time: A former vice-presidential nominee and her family roll up to an alcohol-soaked party in a stretch Hummer limousine, only to find themselves at the center of a bare-knuckle melee involving 20 people.
