Darn the luck.
We never get invited to the good parties and it looks like we missed a doozy in Anchorage, Alaska over the weekend where Sarah Palin and her family were allegedly involved in a house party brawl.
Media outlets that have reached out to the family for comment are still waiting to hear the Palin version.
But here’s what Amanda Coyne, a political blogger in Alaska, was the first to report.

Multiple sources told her that the birthday shindig was “a nice, mellow party” until the Palins showed up and the beer started to flow.
“Track Palin stumbles out of a stretch Hummer, and immediately spots an ex-boyfriend of Willow’s. Track isn’t happy with this guy, the story goes. There’s words, and more. The owner of the house gets involved, and he probably wished he hadn’t,” she wrote in the first of two posts about the incident.
“At this point, he’s up against nearly the whole Palin tribe: Palin women screaming. Palin men thumping their chests. Word is that Bristol has a particularly strong right hook, which she employed repeatedly, and it’s something to hear when Sarah screams, ‘Don’t you know who I am!’ And it was particularly wonderful when someone in the crowd screamed back, ‘This isn’t some damned Hillbilly reality show!’
Eric Thompson, a guest at the party, confirmed to ABC News that Bristol threw a right hook at a guy during the fight.
“She was punching him in the face like six times; it was an assault if I’ve ever seen one,” Thompson said. “It wasn’t a light punch either. She was really hitting him. I’m surprised he just sat there and took it.”
Coyne’s sources said that Sarah Palin could be heard screaming, “Don’t you know who I am?”
And, allegedly, someone in the crowd yelled back: “This isn’t some damned hillbilly reality show!”
(A side note for the fashionistas out there: Coyne reports that Alaska’s former governor was wearing some serious party shoes – platform high-tops with an American flag on them.)
“All of us could not believe it,” Thompson told ABC. “We thought we were watching an episode of Jerry Springer.”
Anchorage police have confirmed that they responded to a report of a verbal and physical altercation involving multiple subjects outside of a residence shortly before midnight on Saturday.
At the time no one wanted to press charges and no arrests were made, but police and prosecutors are still investigating, officials said.
The police confirmed that the Palins were there, but declined to say if they were involved in the fight, which unfortunately leaves everyone to (colorfully) fill in the blanks.
