Ladies, our hopes for marrying into the Palin family have been dashed! (Heterosexually, at least.) Track Palin, 22, the eldest Palin child, recently married his high school sweetheart, Britta Hanson, in a small ceremony. Track Palin is an Army Reservist who was deployed for a year in Iraq; he plans to study at the University of Alaska, where his new wife is a nursing student. The happy couple wed in Hatcher Pass, Alaska, a skiing, snowboarding and hiking locale. The happy couple will hold a bigger ceremony this winter at Alaska’s Alyeska Ski Resort, when they said friends and family from the lower 48 states will be able to join them. (Hmm, could there be another Palin grandkid on the way?) What I find most interesting about this photo is that the bride appears to have wed in jeans and a white blazer, which is the low-key way I want to do it. In fact, it looks like everyone wore super-casual jeans or khakis. Maybe these Palins are onto something… [People] Keep reading »
Last night, Sarah Palin talked to Greta van Susteren over at Fox News about whether she would be throwing her hat in the ring for president in 2012. “It’s a matter for me of some kind of practical, pragmatic decisions that have to be made,” Sarah explained. “One is, with a large family understanding the huge amount of scrutiny and the sacrifices that have to be made on my children’s part in order to see their mama run for president. But yeah, the fire in the belly—it’s there.” [Politico]
I’m tempted to make the obvious joke: “No Sarah, that’s just indigestion.” But instead, after the jump, I’d like to take a look back at Sarah’s thoroughly confusing quotes about this issue over the past year. Let’s just say that she’s hinted and then recanted before. Keep reading »
Sarah Palin, the mother of the world’s most famous plastic surgery laden, reality show-starring teen mom, pitched a fit this week because First Lady Michelle Obama invited the hip hop artist/actor/poet, Common, to perform poetry at the White House.
See, some of Common’s lyrics are not as G-rated as everything the Palin family does, like killing animals, surgically altering their facial features “for medical reasons” and getting knocked up whilst still in high school. Keep reading »
The book cover for Levi Johnston’s Deer In The Headlights: My Life In Sarah Palin’s Crosshairs, is everything I hoped the rumored tell-all‘s cover would be. Levi looking hot/really baked? Check. Antler imagery? Check. No credit for the ghostwriter who probably tapped this thing out while Levi was clubbing baby seals? Check. Fact: I would never read a book by Sarah Palin, but I might just read a book by Levi Johnston. [Amazon] Keep reading »
Is that the pitbull with lipstick or one of the lesbian moms from “The Kids Are Alright”? I can barely tell.
Just kidding: it’s Julianne Moore in costume as Sarah Palin while she films “Game Change,” an HBO film about the 2008 election, in Baltimore. Convincing, no? [Daily Mail UK] Keep reading »
The National Enqurier, purveyor of all news factual, has a juicy little tidbit about the Palin family: Bristol Palin has allegedly “banned’ her mother Sarah Palin from Bristol’s new Arizona home because they disagree about … wait for it … gay marriage. The Enquirer claims Bristol spent so much time with gay dudes on “Dancing With The Stars” that she’s is now questioning the bigoted views held by her mother and has exiled Sarah from her Maricopa, AZ, digs. “Bristol is completely rebelling against her mother — now that she’s experiencing life outside of Alaska and away from Sarah. She has opened her eyes and realized how sheltered and programmed she was,” a source told the Enquirer. Keep reading »
Watch your back, Tina Fey, there’s a new Sarah Palin in town! The first photo of Julianne Moore as Sarah Palin for the HBO film, “Game Change,” which began production today, is out. Damn, Julianne looks exactly like the pitbull in lipstick: the lady-politician red jacket, the wireless glasses, the squinty grin … it’s all pitch-perfect! Who do you think looks more like Sarah Palin — tried-and-true Tina Fey or new-girl-in-town Julianne Moore? [People] Keep reading »
Levi Johnston has more dirt to dish on the Palin family, apparently: the ex-fiancé of Bristol Palin is penning a tell-all book called Deer in the Headlights: My Life in Sarah Palin’s Crosshairs. Alaska’s hunkiest baby daddy apparently didn’t tell all already in his Vanity Fair smear piece or in his forthcoming reality show, “Loving Levi.” This man’s well never runs dry! Levi released a statement through his publisher reading: “I want to tell the truth about my close relationship with the Palins. My sense of Sarah and my perplexing fall from grace – how I feel and what I’ve learned. I’m doing this for me, for my boy Tripp and for the country.” Also, the money. The sad truth is that I would read Levi Johnston’s book before I’d read any book by Sarah Palin. [People] Keep reading »
“I can’t imagine Bristol would have been too psyched to [babysit] anyway; it was her 18th birthday, she was in New York City, and I had made a vicious joke about her a week earlier. But I appreciated the mom-ness of Mrs. Palin’s offer … I thanked her, saying Alice was too little to stay for the show.”
—Tina Fey shares in her new book, Bossypants, that when Sarah Palin appeared on “SNL” in 2008, she offered up daughter Bristol Palin to babysit for Tina’s daughter, Alice, on set. This was, err, while Tina was doing her famous impersonation of her. The fact that she would still offer that is almost enough to make me like Sarah Palin. For a minute, anyway.
