Your quote of the day.
The national reaction to Jackson's death was false and overblown, but it didn't hurt anyone. Moreover, at least Jackson could boast of actual achievements. But Sarah Palin's bizarre resignation is another story. Watching her self-serving, celebrity-driven implosion, it hit home more than ever just how terrifying it is that this person actually could have become vice-president of the United States.

But in a culture of celebrity, the very theatricality of Palin's disgraceful resignation immediately becomes part of her résumé.

This. Exactly this. Celebrity is this grotesque ouroboros.

I still say she's got a talk-show offer. Because we're that fucked up.

Is this one of the signs of the apocalypse?

Maybe the swine flu counts as another of the horsemen? Which sounds like we're in for the lamest apocalypse evar.

Yeah, but when she's on Celebrity Rehab in five years, none of us are going to remember her.

We're even more fucked up than that: over 50% of the GOP still think she's a viable candidate for prez and would support her run. *massive headdesk*

The GOP: party of morons.

No, that's actually a good thing.

Because it means that a large fraction of the GOP doesn't think she's a viable candidate. She could take the party nomination despite that because there's 50+% who do support her, and then we'd have an election race where a whole bunch of Republicans think their own candidate is terrible, thus practically guaranteeing a win for the non-terrible opposition.

(Man, these rose-colored glasses make everything look AWESOME. Would you like to borrow them?)

Apropos of nothing, I owned a pair during the Seventies. They were great because I didn't have to wear blush.

Of course, now I don't wear it because it makes me want to claw my face...

Rose-colored glasses? Hand 'em over here dude.
