Can we just not with a Sarah Palin presidential run? Please? ABC News tracked Palin down in Las Vegas yesterday, where she was serving wild boar chili to the homeless after attending the annual Shooting, Hunting and Outdoor Trade Show. When asked if she’d be interested in the 2016 election, Palin replied, “Yeah, I mean, of course, when you have a servant’s heart, when you know that there is opportunity to do all you can to put yourself forward in the name of offering service, anybody would be interested.” When the interviewer asked again if she’d possibly be interested in running for president, she proceeded with a winding monologue of chipper word vomit: Keep reading »
Draft-dodging ephebophile Ted Nugent sure has some strong “words” for those in the media with whom he disagrees! On Tuesday, Nugent posted an “openletter” to his Facebook page in which he called his critics out on … well, I honestly don’t know what in particular, but something. Keep reading »
Last week, Sarah Palin posted a picture of her darling son Trig standing on Jill Hadassah, the family dog, for the purpose of doing dishes. This was quite a moment for the Mama Grizzly, who could not have been more proud of her son for stepping on a living creature in order to get what he wants.
Normal humans, however, were pretty sketched out. Because you know, most people, upon seeing a child step on a dog would say, “Hey, kid! Get off of the dog! You could hurt her!” instead of taking a picture of the “triumphant” moment. I mean, let’s face it, it’s not that far from seeing your kid setting ants on fire with a magnifying glass and gushing about how curious he is about the world.
Palin responded to criticism by posting a letter on her Facebook and addressing it to PETA. Keep reading »
Well, this has to be a metaphor for something, doesn’t it?
Earlier today, Sarah Palin caused a bit of a kerfuffle on her Facebook page by posting a picture of her son Trig standing on the family dog … like it was a good thing. Seriously. This is what she wrote for the caption:
Happy New Year! May 2015 see every stumbling block turned into a stepping stone on the path forward. Trig just reminded me. He, determined to help wash dishes with an oblivious mama not acknowledging his signs for “up!”, found me and a lazy dog blocking his way. He made his stepping stone.

In Sarah Palin World — by which I mean not the state of Alaska but a state of mind — everything can be explained with a jab at the liberal media and a few references to Jesus. And after two weeks of silence regarding her family’s participation in a bloody brawl at a snowmobile party in Anchorage, Sarah Palin did not disappoint.
On Friday, the former governor of Alaska posted a message on her Facebook page praising her daughter Bristol as a “straight shooter” who defended the family during the brawl — which is not mentioned directly, but obviously being alluded to with this post. Keep reading »
Bristol Palin reportedly has a mean right hook. No, really: police in Anchorage, Alaska confirmed to the politics blog Wonkette that the entire Palin family were part of “20 people” involved in a brawl at a party on Saturday night for the annual Iron Dog snowmobile race.
The whole matter started, allegedly, when the elder son, Track, exchanged words with a guy who had dated his younger sister, Willow. Then Bristol allegedly started throwing punches, and apparently Daddy Todd dropped a C-bomb. But no Palin throw-down would be complete without the almost-Vice-President-of-the-United States shrieking, “Don’t you know who I am!” at the peasants. Keep reading »
