Sarah Palin is defending her children, especially daughter Bristol Palin, following their involvement in a drunken fight at an Alaska snowmobile party the other week (we can't make this stuff up).

The former governor took to her Facebook page the other day to share an approving message of her clan's behavior.

"I love my Bristol! My straight-shooter is one of the strongest young women you'll ever meet," Palin wrote along with several photos of her and her family. "I have to say this as a proud mama: right up there with their work ethic and heart for those less fortunate, my kids' defense of family makes my heart soar!"

She went on, "As you can imagine, they and my extended family have experienced so many things (liberal media-driven) that may have crushed others without a strong foundation of faith, and I'm thankful for our friends' prayer shield that surrounds them, allowing faith to remain their anchor. Thank you, prayer warriors! I love you!"

Palin's words of love come just over a week after Bristol reportedly punched a man several times during a drunken brawl. Anchorage Police Department's communications director Jennifer Castro confirmed to E! News that a fight took place, but didn't specify who exactly was involved.

According to a local blogger Amanda Coyne, who documented the fight, Palin's son Track Palin "stumbled out of a stretch Hummer" before picking a fight with a man who may have dated his sister Willow Palin. The owner of the house, Chris Olds, got involved and claimed he was struck by Bristol several times.

Coyne wrote of 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!'"
