palin's family. a lot of finger pointing. any idea what exactly went down? >> according to the police reports, this was a fight that involved the palin children, the two eldest children. and as you mentioned, there are new reports that bristol palin was called horrible names. and, you know, i think this is a situation where no one really was there, there are no charges being pressed. i don't think this is going to have a long lasting impact on the palin brand. but, you know, clearly it is not an ideal situation. but the former vice presidential candidate was nowhere near involved. she was waiting in her -- >> in a limo outside. but she did respond. i have to put -- >> cryptically she did. >> she went on to her facebook page and responded by saying, quote, in my kids' defense, a family, that makes my heart soar. is she condoning what happened in any way here? >> i think that, you know, these are her children and no one was there. if they're called the names that are allegedly bristol palin was
called, it looks like the palin children were sticking together. i think that there is a case to be made for that. the bottom line, though, is that sarah palin is a dominant force in republican politics still. she could be a game changer in the kansas senate race. she's been campaigning for senator pat roberts. and electing that grassroots for that. ta as it comes down to the wire there. i think this is not an ideal situation to say the least. and, you know, it does, as you mentioned, it is a thriller in wasilla as you called it. >> the politics of it all, she went on to say her family experienced so many things, liberal, media driven that may have crushed others without a strong foundation of faith. so she had to put that in there. we'll see how this plays out. kevin, thanks so much. have a great friday and great weekend.
