Folksy, non-joke getting governor Sarah Palin is resigning her office. Already the comments being made by her blind supporters have worked my household into a frenzy. How anyone could vote for this woman is amazing. She has now provided a new argument against her nomination for national office… she’s unable to fulfill her duties as governor. If she was mid-term and resigned to take the Presidency that makes sense. But to take off at least a year before her term is over is mindboggling. The woman obviously only wants to feed her ego and need for attention.
Can anyone give me a rational reason to vote for her? She’s not qualified, she’s not intelligent, she’s not an innovative public servant. She destroyed any chance John McCain had of winning centrists (yes Obama is actually a moderate and won because he got middle of the road America to like him). What’s worse is that she holds this weird George Bush philosophy that has been shown (through real world experience) to not work. Her foreign, domestic, and economic ideas are failures. Especially in light of the recent articles showing another reason how the Iraq war was a complete waste.
Why can’t she have an Argentinian lover so we never have to hear from her again. Dumbest politician ever!
So I keep seeing these headlines on news sites, Teen Spotted at Beach, Teen Spotted on Bus, Missing Teen Spotted. It’s like fucking bigfoot out there, so I finally break down and click on the story and it turns out that 17 year old Brittanee got upset and went with friends to Myrtle Beach to party it down on spring break. While I totally understand her mom being upset, I don’t see this as national news. If it turns out she was kidnapped, she meets the criteria for a missing woman story to be covered (young, white, middle class, and cute – notice how the media could care less otherwise) and I hope she’s returned home safely.
Otherwise, what the hell is Nancy Grace going to add to this discussion? Will she browbeat the mother until she kills herself? It seems to me that this mother should hug her daughter when she gets home and then chain her in the basement while simultaneously yelling at her for the next three years.
So again, I ask, how the hell is this story news? Is it because her parents didn’t know how to spell Brittany? What next? Teen Asks to Go to Movies? Mother asks 10 Year Old to Clean Room? Isn’t there something more important that CNN could be reporting on? What about political changes in Myanmar?
Nice crack reporting CNN.

Just a short note to mention the retirement of loudmouth Curt Schilling. Please drift away and shut your pie hole. I never liked you and had zero respect for you. Go live a quiet life in relative obscurity. Go Yankees!
Of course, notice how ESPN is already bowing down to Curt thanks to its pro-Red Sox bias

Let’s forget it’s lack of insight, interesting articles, good advice, attempts at intelligent discourse, attention to matters of substance, and lack of history. Maxim has now put all of this aside and decided to shoot to the front of the line for World’s Shittiest Magazine… The magazine published a review of the Black Crowes new album without hearing more than one song. Was it that the single was so bad they needed no more to form an opinion? No. The album was not yet available for preview to any publication.
Way to go Maxim! What next? Will you write the history of President Huckabee’s administration? Will you discuss the multiple-Oscar winning career of Ellen Page? Will you compare and contrast Transformers 3 to Transformers 2? Will you discuss he demise of Goldie Hawn? Will you do a 25 year retrospective on the career of the biggest selling recording artist of all time: Alicia Keyes? Oh wait, those things haven’t happened have they?
I’m glad to see you value the intelligence of your readers. Good job assholes.

That Clay Aiken is among the world’s biggest idiots. He’s getting ready to join the abomination known as Spamalot but he doesn’t get it, doesn’t know what (not who) Monty Python is, and blames it for his problems getting off the toilet. Read his inane opinions here. I have an idea Clay, just go away.
Happy Thanksgiving, especially to those of you who spent time with people you love. For those of you who decided to start shopping today let me just say that you’re everything that’s wrong with America (outside of the entire states of Florida and Ohio).
To the retailers open today, including Sears… I’m now going to go out of my way to avoid buying any Christmas presents at your stores. How DARE you require employees to be away from friends and family today. My favorite quote was from a Sears spokeswoman:
“Some people just can’t wait until Friday,” said Kirsten Whipple, a Sears spokeswoman. “Thanksgiving dinner is done and they have moved on.”
All I can say is what a crass fucking idiot.
