"Levi Johnston plans to seek public office in Wasilla, Alaska..." Would it be uncharitable to say that he's clearly established his bona fides for the position of dogcatcher?

See, byoolin, that is where you are wrong! (as much as I hate to say byoo is wrong)

That would be the head moose catcher in Wasilla.

Justin B? Is he even old enough to have zits?

"Asked whether he believed people would take Johnston's run for office seriously, with TV cameras rolling, Jones said: "People questioned Jesus Christ, so I definitely don't care about these mere mortals questioning Levi Johnston."

Wow. Just...wow.

Aw, geez, Kev, you made me read the article.

Someone should point out to Tank Jones that this Jesus Christ guy's political career ended fairly badly after people questioned *him* (er, *Him*).

What a marketing coup for Proactive!!!! I can hardly wait for Justin Bieber's cover of "I am an acne pimple." For those of you too young or too forgetful, here are the lyrics:

I am an acne pimple, as lonely as can be.
Don't cry pimple--I'll keep you company.
Hey fellow pimples, would three be a crowd?
All together pimples, sing real loud!

Levi Johnston may get nailed, but Bristol Palin has her own double-cross to bear (Apologies to Tom Waits).

Nah, nah, nanananah nah.

I'm sure the people of Wasilla would like to wash their hands of the entire matter. Wonder who's going to get the 30 pieces of silver out of this deal?

Levi Johnston is famous for what now? An ex-boyfriend of Sarah Palin's daughter and that's about it. Has he gone to college? Probably not. Does he have any discernible talent? No. Why are people of ill repute and no talent allowed to become famous? I. Just. Don't. Understand.

If Sarah Palin can get elected, I see no reason Levi Johnston can't. They have about the same level of intelligence and qualifications for public office, which is to say NONE.

And here I thought Hayden Christensen was a girl. Time for another cup of highly caffeinated tea, apparently.

Californian, you're thinking of Hayden Panettiere. Who come to think of it still would've made for a more convincing Anakin Skywalker.

It's so confusing with all the Haydens and Dermotts and Dylans, oh my. And then there's the Taylors and the Spencers. Not to mention Alan Alda, Adam Arkin and Alan Arkin.

I love Weezer but even if I didn't I'd buy that CD just for Hurley.

Actually, I thought Emma Watson just wanted to study for a while and figure out whether or not she wanted to act again.

Maybe she auditioned, but maybe she just cut her hair because she was tired of Hermione/Burberry-Hair (she's no longer their spokesmodel) and wanted something easier to roll out of bed with for an 8 o'clock class.
