    It began as a birthday party that drew local snowmobile racers, construction workers and other longtime Alaskans last Saturday night. It turned into a brawl with members of Sarah Palin’s family at the center of it, according to witnesses.
    The police are investigating, and the Palin family is not commenting.
    Guests said the event began as a birthday party for twin brothers Matt and Marc McKenna, the latter a well-known snowmobile racer. Most of the party was outside with dancing and a live band. Things appeared to get out of hand, according to multiple reports, after members of the Palin family arrived in a stretch Hummer limousine.
    According to a statement from the Anchorage Police Department, officers responded to “a report of a verbal and physical altercation taking place between multiple subjects outside of a residence on the 900 block of Harbor Circle.”
    It said that none of the people involved wanted to press charges, no arrests were made and an investigation was continuing. The police chief, Mark Mew, said Friday that even if the victims do not press charges, the municipal prosecutor could file charges if the facts warrant it.
    The police statement concluded: “Alcohol was believed to have been a factor in the incident. Some of the Palin family members were in attendance at the party.”
    Several witnesses said the trouble started when Track Palin, 25, Palin’s elder son, confronted a former boyfriend of his sister Willow and a fight broke out. Before long Sarah Palin’s husband, Todd, who also races snowmobiles and was also celebrating a birthday (his 50th), was said to have gotten involved in the fighting.
    Later, according to witnesses, Bristol Palin, one of Sarah Palin’s daughters, threw several punches at the owner of the house where the party was being held.
    The result was a brawl said to involve about 20 people. In the end, the Palin family was ordered by the homeowner to leave, witnesses said.
    According to Amanda Coyne, a blogger in Alaska who talked to several witnesses, at one point during the fight, Sarah Palin “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!’ ”
    Witnesses said the Palin family members climbed back into their stretch Hummer limousine. Before they left, however, Sarah Palin unleashed several rounds of profanity and Track Palin made a vulgar gesture toward the crowd, according to one participant at the party who declined to be identified out of fear of reprisals. (One participant, Eric Thompson, an employee of the firm whose office manager hosted the party, said he was fired after speaking to ABC News on Thursday night.)
    The Palin family was not available for comment. But Sarah Palin, in a Facebook post Sunday, said she had been traveling “yesterday” — the day the party was held — so she wanted to post a birthday greeting to her husband one day late. She did not mention the party.
    “It was a really nice, mellow party,” Thompson said in an interview Thursday night. “Then it turned into ‘The Jerry Springer Show.’ ”

    Sarah Palin was obviously not at fault. Even in Alaska, it’s OKAY if a Republican does it.

    If they were to film a modern day “Beveryly Hillbillies” my guess is that they would be driving a stretch Hummer limosine. Almost vice-president! Hairs raising up on my neck!

    Such a class act by the Palin Family. What the hell was John McCain thinking putting this dysfunctional loon on the Republican ticket with him in 2008 ?

    Jeff, I saw “Ed’s Snow Machines” on the back of the guy on the left and wondered how you were bringing Snowden into this. Took me a few to let it go.
