Sarah Palin On “American Choppers”

May 1, 2009

Remember when Sarah Palin gave a television interview while this guy was slaughtering turkeys in the background?

Yeah, well, apparently she still hasn’t perfected her ability to choose a suitable background for an interview. See giant dead bear:

“Hey, whatcha doin’?” “Oh, just haaangin’ out with my dead bear rug…”

In case you missed it, the “is this an SNL skit?” turkey video is after the jump…

Palin, Jindal, And Others Reject Stimulus Money Allocated For Their States

March 23, 2009

sarah-palinCNN reported on Friday that Governor Palin will officially reject about half of the federal stimulus money allocated for her state and some believe she’s simply playing politics ahead of her 2010 reelection bid. Palin said she believes the funds will only put her state in a “deeper hole.”

In a statement released Friday, Palin said she is open to accepting more of the federal funds, especially the $170 million she is currently rejecting that is allotted to education.

Looks like that hole is sometimes okay.

The article states that other, generally conservative governors, including South Carolina Gov. Mark Sanford, Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal, Texas Gov. Rick Perry, and Mississippi Gov. Haley Barbour have all vowed to reject some or all of the stimulus funds headed toward their states.

Texas, with a January unemployment rate of 6.4%, is entitled to $555 million of federal funds. Eligibility for the funds, however, is dependent upon the state expanding unemployment benefits and Gov. Perry does not want to accept the stimulus money because his state would have to raise taxes to cover the expanded benefits once the stimulus funds ran out.

A valid concern but it doesn’t address the goal of the stimulus money or other ways to help the 6.4% of people in his state that are unemployed.

It’ll be interesting to see how this is received by the voting public.

Completely Unrelated: Everyone read The Onion‘s Point/Counterpoint: “Gov. Palin Has No Foreign Policy Experience, Refuses To Acknowledge Global Warming, And Supports The War In Iraq” – versus – “Please Keep Your Voice Down, My Poor Retarded Child Is Sleeping,” right? Well, you should.

Compared with her possible competitors – Romney, Huckabee, Jindal, Rush – I would welcome a Palin campaign.


Shocker: Bristol And Levi No Longer Dating

March 12, 2009

The completely fuckable Levi Johnston next to some bitch.

The completely fuckable Levi Johnston next to some bitch.

The rumors started yesterday when Levi‘s sister Mercede told Star Magazine that Bristol has cut Levi out of her and their child’s life:

“Levi tries to visit Tripp every single day, but Bristol makes it nearly impossible. She tells him he can’t take the baby to our house because she doesn’t want him around ‘white trash’!”

According to Radar Online:

It’s surprising because in an interview just last month with FOX’s Gretta Van Susteren, Bristol said the 19-year-old Levi is a hands-on dad and that they planned on marrying after finishing their education.

[…] Mercede Johnston says Bristol actually broke up with Levi more than a month ago, is not attending school and rarely lets her baby daddy see their young son. Mercede also says Bristol even told him that she hates him and, when she learned she was pregnant, wished the baby wasn’t his.

Today, People is reporting that Levi has confirmed the split occurred “a while ago.”

Bristol Mama-At-Seventeen Palin responded:

“Unfortunately, my family has seen many people say and do many things to ‘cash in’ on the Palin name. Sometimes that greed clouds good judgment and the truth.”

Fuckers should have never been put on that convention stage…
