Palins Turn Willow Into Inexcusable Rape-Joke Punchline


· So now the Palins have responded to David Letterman's sort-of apology / invitation to come on his show, via spokesperson Meg Stapleton: "The Palins have no intention of providing a rating's boost for David Letterman by appearing on his show. Plus, it would be wise to keep Willow away from David Letterman." Oh. My. God. HOW DARE SARAH PALIN MAKE A JOKE ABOUT LETTERMAN RAPING WILLOW?! We demand a whole new round of apologies, this instant. Stapleton to Palin. Palin to Letterman. Stapleton to Letterman. Everyone to Willow. Let's see ... who did we leave out? Oh yeah: Palin to America, for being such an intolerable hag. [Politico]

· Fox News owns the story of Carrie Prejean's dethroning. Today's goodies: The e-mails between Prejean and Miss USA producer Keith Lewis. Sample: "You do not cooperate with me, and you pick and chose the the things YOU want me to do. That is not happening anymore. Stop speaking for me. I have MY own voice. What are u gonna do fire me for volunteering for the special olympics hahaha ur crazy No I am doing this appearance. You do not need details. Its for the SPECIAL OLYMPICS!!!"

· The fanboy detectives extraordinaire at noticed a link between the two images released from Iron Man 2. That smudge on the plexiglass is actually a map of Monaco Grand Prix -- where Mickey Rourke makes his first appearance! Or maybe it's just a smudge.

· Adam Lambert's Rolling Stone interview fallout, Part One: Kris Allen says of Adam's crush on him in the Idol barracks: "I'm flattered. And think it's hilarious."

Part Two: David Archuleta says: "I don't think it was a big surprise. I don't think he was trying to be all secretive and sneaky about it...I just kind of assumed it. I think everyone else did too, but I don't think it's a bad thing or anything. He's a really cool guy."


· Have you heard the one about how a St. Louis family became the unwitting models in a Czech supermarket ad? It could have been worse -- they could have ended up on a Guide to Talking to Your Kids About Chastity Bono's Sex Change.

· Katie Holmes to appear on So You Think You Can Make a Mad Dash For It.

· A multi-thousand-word NY Times piece on Brüno's homophobic humor -- unintentionally, intentionally, whatever -- is forthcoming. God, things were so much simpler when we could all just stand on one side of an imaginary line and laugh at Kazakhs together, weren't they?

    It is wise to keep me away from a bottle of Scotch, but that doesn't imply I will rape it.

  • Inhaler says:

    No one should try keeping Carrie Prejean from making an appearance at the Special Olympics. Everyone deserves to feel the comfort of being surrounded by their peers after all.

  • Old No.7 says:

    Winning Miss USA is like winning a race in the Special Olympics. Either way, you're still retarded.

  • NoWireHangers says:

    Without reading any of the coverage of Sarah Palin's latest stunt to inject her idiotic self back into the news, I'm assuming that the premise is something like:
    1. Letterman told a joke that wasn't about rape.
    2. Palin said it was about rape and proceeded to scream on the news.
    3. Letterman made another joke.
    4. Palin said something that suggested Letterman rapes children.
    That's it, basically, right?

    Yes. And Levi took his shirt off somewhere. (It needed a happy ending.) (And Willow wasn't around to administer it! *high five*)

    Bruno = gay minstrel show
