Bristol Palin Is Engaged To a Man Named Dakota

The most well-known offspring of Sarah Palin, Bristol, is engaged. She shared the happy news on Instagram this morning (or whatever time it was in Alaska).

Bristol - who seems to be rocking some serious Kim Kardashian nails - shared the above photograph with the caption, "Truly the luckiest girl in the world, cannot wait to marry this man!!!!!"

She also shared a photo of her engagement ring.


According to Us Weekly, Bristol's fiancé is Dakota Meyer, a veteran of the Marine Corps and a 2009 recipient of the Medal of Honor.

Begin the countdown to the inevitable reality show.

My rabidly-conservative Facebook friends (who I keep both out of a sense of loyalty b/c of family friendships and also because it keeps me informed about the gross stuff being said about various topics) are all over this as "so American!" and wishing them the best. I have a feeling if Bristol was a different race, they'd be all over her as an unwed mother contributing to the downfall of society and explaining how she is manipulating a man into taking care of her.
