Sometimes I think Kathy Griffin would not have any material if it weren’t for the Palin family. But I don’t necessarily mind because, like she says here in a clip from her “Kathy Griffin: Gurrl Down” comedy special, the Palin family is really effing funny. Here Kathy talks about how she went to Wasilla, Alaska, with Levi Johnston to knock on the Palins’ front door … and could not see one inch of Russia. What the…? [AOL TV] Keep reading »
The 24,000 emails that Sarah Palin sent and received while she was governor of Alaska didn’t turn out to be filled with salacious and incriminating tidbits, like many reporters had hoped. But as editor Michael Solomon discovered, they were full of beautiful verse. And thus, Michael has put together a collection of 50 Palin poems in the volume Hope Like Heck: The Selected Poems of Sarah Palin.
After the jump, two lovely selections. Keep reading »
Oh, and you think your emails are private? On Friday, the state of Alaska released more than 24,000 emails sent and received by Sarah Palin while she was governor. Which means that many a journalist spent their weekend sifting through every word. So what did they find? The highlights after the jump. Keep reading »
Why won’t Sarah Palin ever be president? It won’t be because of her shoddy grasp of foreign policy (“I can see Russia from my house!”). It won’t be because of the ethics investigations that dog her. It won’t because her pro-abstinence-only education, anti-abortion policies harm women and girls and a revolution of ladies have risen up to tell her where to shove it — although I wish that were it.
No, Sarah Palin will never be president because man shall never be ruled by a woman. Keep reading »
“How do you wear all this leather and stay cool? I love that smell of the emissions.”
—Sarah Palin not only loves hunting. Apparently, she’s into motorcycling, too, even if she doesn’t get wearing head-to-toe leather in the summer. Palin is currently on a bus tour of the Eastern U.S., and yesterday headed to Washington, D.C., to participate in Rolling Thunder, an annual motorcycle rally for veterans that happens in conjunction with the parade on the National Mall. Folks, put on your helmets. It sure looks like we are in for a Sarah Palin 2012 campaign for the presidency after all. [Fox News] Keep reading »
Gotta love a bride who wears blue jeans and pearls on her wedding day, right? Of course I am referring to Britta Hanson, 21, the new wife of Track Palin. Last Friday, we saw Britta and Track’s wedding photos. Today, we get lots more information on the newest member of the Palin clan. Not only is Britta the daughter of a preacher man—her dad is the pastor at Wasilla’s Good Shepherd Lutheran Church—she’s also tight with several other members of the Palin family. Last year, Bristol Palin called her “roomie”—the two shared a condo in Anchorage when Bristol was “scared to live by myself.” And Britta also worked for Sarah—she was the executive secretary at Alaska’s office of the governor from 2008 through this year.
Plus, Britta sounds like one of those girls who is good at everything. Keep reading »
Gird your loins, Arizona: Sarah Palin might be moving in! The Atlantic Wire reports the former governor of Alaska allegedly bought an 8,000-square foot, $1.6 million home in a secluded area of Scottsdale, Arizona. The identity of the buyer is hidden on the property records, but the lawyer for the sale suspiciously replied “No comment!” when asked if the buyer was Palin. The fancy pad features six bedrooms, six bathrooms, a swimming pool and spa, a six-car garage, a wine cellar, and a guard gate. Damn! Keep reading »
