Quote(s) of the Week


"Well, we were sitting on the couch, my best friend and Levi, and we had my parents come and sit on the couch, too. And we just sat them down, and I just -- I couldn't even say it. I was just sick to my stomach. And so finally, my best friend just, like, blurted it out. And it was just, like -- I don't even remember it because it was just, like, something I don't want to remember."

-- Bristol Palin on breaking the news of her pregnancy to her family

"It's just, like, I'm not living for myself anymore. It's, like, for another person, so it's different. And just, you're up all night. And it's not glamorous at all. Like, your whole priorities change after having a baby."

-- Bristol Palin on being pregnant

“Everyone should be abstinent, or whatever, but it’s not realistic at all.”

-- Bristol Palin on abstinence-only education

"This little baby is very lucky to have her as a mama. He's going to be just fine."

-- Sarah Palin on Bristol Palin

Not quite sure if I want to laugh or cry...

Also, to, and, furthermore....

Just like her mother....look out, Bristol in 2028!

"Like, whatEVER, and then I was like, "OMG do I have to tell them I'm, like, preggers?" Can't, like, someone just shoot me from a plane?"

I at least have to give her credit for throwing out the whole "abstinence-only education isn't realistic" thing, though, even though it is a bit on the Captain Obvious side.

Yeah, like, right!

Her best friend blurted it out? Isn't that almost exactly how it happened in Juno? I guess it is a conservative movie after all.

Airheaded-ness just seems to run in the family doesn't it?

How about Palin - Duggar in '12?

Alex said...

Awww abstinence is too hard! boo-hoo. Not that I disagree with her on the sort of peer pressure end of it but I just love when a hypocrite suddenly learns a lesson after they shoot themselves in the foot (or stomach. with a baby gun?)

Good thing Jesus loves the little children, cause that's about the only way that kid is getting out alive. Specially when the Wicked Witch of the North tries to sacrifice him so she can get a job on Fox news.

"....and then, i was like, 'but c'mon mom, now i can like, wear your clothes and we can like, compare baby bump pictures!!!' and she was like, totally excited about that."

dammitjanet said...

and, like, you know, whatever...we like screwed and, like, you know, it, like, sucks being a mom right now, like, a lot

Jesus, doesn't say much for the Alaskan educational system, does it?

marija said...

Isn't it weird that the US almost got a VP whose family and that of the Spears' household are eerily similar?

drater said...

Actually, grammar aside, I find Bristol's comments pretty frank and reasonable. Yeah, any reasonable person knows that being a pregnant teenager is no picnic, but how often do you see the word "teenager" preceded by "reasonable"? If she gets the wheels turning in a few girls heads, more power to her.

As for Sara, if by "just fine" she means "a father before he finishes high school", I gotta agree.

Chez, you dropped the rest of the first quote:

"...and so my mom was just like, "Oh Bristy, why couldn't it just have been a blowjob?" and my dad was all, "I'm taken oot the snow machine, I need to clear my head," and Levi was like, "Yeah, why couldn't it have been a blowjob?" and little baby Tripp was like looking back and forth at me and mom and was all like, "Mama?" and then we all watched Ted Nugent:Spirit of the Wild VI and ate wolf jerky."

VOTAR said...

I guess this is as good an opportunity as any, but I've been meaning to pass this along in the hopes that it catches on around here too.

The guys I regularly play poker with each week, and I, have collectively decided to replace the word "retard" with: TRIG.

As in,

"Dude, you are such a fucking trig."

"That's just completely trigged."

"Don't go all trig on us."

It's become quite popular around here. Pass it on.

Chez said...

How did anyone in that family notice there was something different about Trig?

Vermillion said...

What makes the Bristol thing achieve a whole other level of splendid poetic justice and/or irony is that Grandma Sarah also got knocked up out of wedlock, only to follow it up with a shotgun elopement.

idiosynchronic said...

I could rain some condemnation on Bristol too, but . . let's be frank, somewhere between one-quarter and one-half of all 12-25 year-olds talk like this. Many will grow out of it. I hope.

But at least she admitted that abstinence isn't realistic. Too bad she fronted it with, "Everyone should be . ." It was probably a phrase that she had to memorize prior.

Anonymous said...

God, I can even picture exactly how Sarah said that. Big smiley exhale before speaking, head bon following "very lucky" and finishing it all off with a wink after the folksy use of the adorable "mama" instead of "teenaged unwed mother."

winged unicorn said...

um votar?

i thought trig was the smart one in that family.

at least, that's the way he's always struck me...

any plans to introduce bristol and levi to chantelle and alfie? it could be sarah's first move towards enhancing her worldview!

Oops.

dammitjanet said...

I HAVE 2 teenagers, between 12 and 25, and I can assure you, they do NOT talk like that.

Probably because I have beat it out of them.

aauais said...

well chez - you weren't exactly a rocket scientist back when we were teenagers either.

neither was i

we all sounded pretty stupid back then.

I am not Star Jones said...

Why can't this sleazy opportunistic grifters just do their thing with providing periodic updates with their professional enabler Fox News?

I do get the feeling the interview is a dog whistle is to get all those Palin fans to send more free crap for the new baby.

Chez said...

Bullshit, Auais.

Neither you, nor I, nor anyone we hung out with regularly sounded that dumb. The ones that did, we made fun of.

tania said...

“Everyone should be abstinent, or whatever"

Clearly, Bristol and Levi chose the 'whatever' option...

God, she sounds too stupid to even be human. Is it certain Sarah didn't get knocked up by a moose, or is the jury still out on that?

aauais said...

You're right Chez - thinking about it as I sit here - no one sounded that fucking dumb in our high school. you are right if they did remotely sound that stupid we did make fun of them!!
