This is almost painful to say, but...I might agree with LiLo. What *does* a pregnant teenager have to do with international politics, anyway?! Also, interesting how the MSM interprets things...if the content of Lindsey's blog post is as described in the blurb, it's hardly 'sounding off' at Palin.

"Joan Rivers says Angelina Jolie is 'beautiful, but stupid.'" In other words, Angelina is 1-for-2 while Joan is 0-for-2. If Joan plays the 'talented' or 'intelligent' cards, she'll be in a very deep hole going into the final round of the match.


RIP, Jerry Reed. Everyone else here quoted his best lyrics yesterday, so I won't.

Nice shot at Lily, Elton. Did you also tell Her Majesty that you're still a bigger queen than she ever was?


Lindsay Lohan wrote, "we are taking the focus off of getting to know Sarah Palin and her political views, and what she can do to make our country a less destructive place."

Thanks, LiLo. What the hell are we supposed to do with this? It's calm, it's sensible, rational and even spelled correctly. I got nothin'.

Per Joan Rivers: Please - that's just her act. Long before she was trashing celebrities, she was a modified insult comic. Elizabeth Taylor used to be her target.

I found the other pictures on the Lily Allen/Elton John page more interesting. I know Elle McPherson was "The Body" and still is, but hey, it was nice to see that Jerry Hall has embraced eating in her old age. She just needs to work less at looking like Kathleen Turner in Peggy Sue Got Married.

I wish I could help my thoughts but I can't. I think that as progressive as we've become, between Juno and The Secret Life of An American Teenager, I don't think that the mom of a pregnant teenager has any place in the White House. This country blasted Lynn Spears when Jamie-Lynn got pregnant. Now they love Sarah and Bristol Palin for "choosing life". I promise you if Malia or Sasha Obama was pregnant John Imus would've probably called her "trifiling pregnant ho" and Barack Obama would've been hailed as all that is wrong with Black America. The fact that Sarah Palin chooses to be a working mom is great. However, I think that her family needs her a great deal. When teeange pregnancy occurs it's most times due to a lack of attention at home. I wish them the best. GO BARACK!!!!

The reason why Palin's pregnant teenage daughter is relevant is because Palin and the Republicans tout their "morality" and "family values" as a reason why they are superior to Democrats. Palin is also a leading advocate of abstinence only. If she cannot teach her own daughter right and wrong how is she going to have the authority to lead the nation and our armed forces.

I watched a little of it, but couldn't get into it, probably because I can't stand Lori Loughlin or whatever her name is. Didn't they graduate from HS in 93 (watched some of the marathon Monday on Soapnet, yes I need a life)? So, Hannah could be 14 if she was born in 94.

And who's the father of Kelly's kid?

Just to get on my soap box for a sec: I just love how the evangalicals and repubs are saying how Palin "chose" to have a child with downs and how Bristol "chose" to have the baby and marry the baby daddy, which is ironic since they are trying to take away women's right to "CHOOSE". Ok, stepping off now. On to the snark...for as long as we keep hearing about Eva Longoria's "baby bump" shouldn't that kid be in college by now?

You are totally right! I sometimes get the date I graduated high school and college confused! Thanks!

They have not said who the father is - they mentioned Brandon when Brenda rolled on in, but I think they are trying to keep it a secret. Erin Silver, David and Kelly's sister is also a character.

Okay, back to Celebritology!

Lilo has a point. The Palin pregnancy is distracting from examining her stand on issues.

As for Sarah Palin needing to be home with her kids, I would like to point out that the family HAS A STAY AT HOME PARENT. Mr. Palin stays home and looks after the kids. One parent works, one parent stays home.

Well, Britney Spears just moved ahead of K-Fed in the parenting stakes. She doesn't want her kids to go into show biz. He's dragging them to casting calls.

Wait, wait, wait. A year ago, Lilo and Britney would not have been the subject of good comments. Heck, if Paris Hilton is serious with her comment, that is 3 for 3. I believe that is a sign of the apocalypse.

What happened to Celebritology?

Posted by: methinks | September 3, 2008 10:55 AM | Report abuse

I confess I've spent entirely too much time thinking about this recently -- but as a conservative, Evangelical woman who works with fundies, I'm probably getting more exposure to this issue than the rest of you.

Palin set herself up to be judged on her behavior because of the double whammy of being "christian" and being female. here's how:
1. Many religious groups, including the Catholic church, where she was raised, found their social policies on a theological doctrine called the "seamless garment." this says in short that your positions should be consistent -- if you're in favor of outlawing abortion, you cannot also be in favor of the death penalty. You're either for life, or against it. there's a papal encyclical somewhere putting forth this view. In Evangelical circles, the common phraseology has to do with "surrendering your life to christ." the whole notion of values voters is based on the notion of a Christian amerida, where God has his hand on america. If He has made it possible for you to take office in order to serve Him, it is because you have submitted your life to serving His will -- your personal and your professional life. this is why a preacher can be fired for getting divorced, having an affair, etc. because in order to do your JOB, you have to have your house in order. In most Evangelical circles, your personal life is EXTREMELY relevant to how qualified you are to hold office. it's about integrity.

2. The old feminist doctrine has always told us that 'the personal is political.' In short, discrimination at home has repercussions in the work place, a feminist household is a social good that benefits the whole community, and people who are truly feminist treat women as equals in every area -- both at work and at home.

By simultaneously embracing the qualities of being christian and female and suggesting that as a the basis for voting for her (rather than her resume), she ASKED for this kind of scrutiny. she needs to get her house in order. It is relevant.

I know what Chris looked like and from the description Steven McEveety, the producer, gives us "Michael's never looked so good, for a bad guy," I can only assume Chris Farley = a cute Michael Moore.

Second, while I can visualize Farley as Moore, and Voigt as Washington, I'm not visualizing Kelsey Grammer as Gen. George Patton.

Amen, Curmudgeon. Especially since that Sarah Palin, with whom I disagree on absolutely everything, preaches abstinence, no sex ed in schools, etc. How's that abstinence and no sex ed working out for ya now, Palin? Forcing your 17-year-old pregnant daughter to marry some pimply-faced high school student -- yeah, good idea.

Mr. Palin hasn't always stayed home. He is currently on leave from his job as an oil field worker. I'm guessing that was simply a political stunt, as Sarah Palin brought her 2- and 3-day old infants to the office with her when they were born.

And now back to our regularly scheduled Celebritology snarking, wasn't Cameron Diaz engaged to someone recently?

Given Joan Rivers' visage, she probably shouldn't be throwing stones about people being stupid.

I was struck by how much Angelina Jolie looks like Janice Dickinson in that photo. And that's not a compliment.

Liz, I can't believe you didn't even mention that Tim Daly is hosting a chat on WP.com today! Too bad there's not a live video feed as well. YUM

When the legislature's in session, the Gov is required in Juneau, and the two younger girls (Willow and Piper) and now the baby go live in Juneau with her, while the older two, Track (now in the Army) and Bristol stay in Wasilla with their father. Got that? They stay with their father.

When Bristol Palin goes clubbing, you can be sure that baby seals are involved.

Slightly off topic, re., the list you posted has more than a few errors in it. Then again, it's Wikipedia. That is to be expected.

I think Paris ment that her partying lifestyle occasionally leaves part of her empty.

why the blacks do it all the time. Obama gets the black vote despite the fact that few of them could tell you anything about him. Identity politics is the post and parcel of the democratic party.

Actually a lot of blacks in the last few election cycles were lured over to the republican ticket. i think it shows wisdom that they won't make that mistake again this year...

Is Sarah Palin dating John Mayer or something? Has she been adopting kids from other countries? Why are we talking about her?

Goodbye Jerry. No smokies in heaven. You and Elvis have a lot of catching up to do.

Brangelina could have offered to adopt Bristol Palin's love-child.

Is Todd Palin related to Michael Palin? Does he like to jump out at Sarah and say, "NO ONE expects the Spanish Inquisition"? Is this the reason for their rockin' sex life?

Not sure what vapid Paris means when she said the clubbing lifestyle left her empty. Wasn't she always pretty much a vacuum?

Cameron Diaz sure gets around. I hope Paul Sculfor's shots are all current.

Liz sure made luvlinsey and luvjen happy today, didn't she?

Sasquatch,
Haven't you learned your lesson yet? Something tells me you actually WANT us to come visit the lizards.

Sorry, but I don't believe that Lindsay wrote that. Even giving her credit for being smarter than she acts, it still smells like the work of a PR hack. I mean, come on: "focus on delivering some words and policy with stronger impact"? Does that sound like our beloved LiLo to you?

Disclaimer: I didn't read the actual blog, just the article.

I think you're correct, ADHD.

LiLo simply doesn't know big words like "impact" and "policy". Neither does Sam.

One last thought on the election: Do you think they're building those fences along our borders to keep us here if John McCain should win?

Dear Jen,

You can stalk me all you want. In fact, can I send you my garbage to get you started?

Sincerely,

I can't believe no one made the entirely too easy crack on Paris.
Paris "party lifestyle left me empty."

No, I bet you were filled quite often during your party life period.

The entire Palin family should move out of the Alaska governor's mansion and live in a doublewide. And most of you people should join them there. Trailer trash belongs in a trailer.

BTW, I had to look up Josh Lucas and I saw on Wiki that his birth name was Joshua Lucas Easy Dent Maurer. So, two more parents that need to be added to the "should be tasered" list.

Not to worry, "No thanks," the Captain is not after you. The Captain is content to wait until Bristol Palin gets her divorce at age 19 before visiting her trailer.

If you don't get this obvious joke, no amount of explaining will help you. Just move on.
