We Got Us a Feud!


"Bristol did not even know Levi was going on the show. We're disappointed that Levi and his family, in a quest for fame, attention, and fortune, are engaging in flat-out lies, gross exaggeration, and even distortion of their relationship. Bristol's focus will remain on raising Tripp, completing her education, and advocating abstinence."

-- Official Palin family statement in response to Levi Johnston's appearance on (wait for it) The Tyra Banks Show, during which he admitted that he and Bristol Palin slept together often and didn't always use contraception

Now might be a good time to remind you that almost everyone involved in this story made my list of the 10 Most Ridiculous, Shameful, or Generally Unfortunate People and Events of 2008.

A quest for fame, attention and fortune? That kind of sounds like a nice brief description of Palin's career. HOOOO WEE! I got my whiskey jug and mah banjo already to twang!

Someone should book the Wasillabillies on the Jerry Springer show and get it over with. Or at the very least the Maury show. Let them fight it out for a national audience.

Guaranteed ratings smash.

Trigs.

All of them.

They're definitely going the full retard.

This story compliments Todd's half sister busted breaking and entering the same home she stole $400.00 from a week earlier; don'tcha know.

I think we need to expand Hunter S. Thompson's theory regarding hillbillies. He wrote (forgive me I read 38 years ago) something along the lines that they come from King George's penal colonies, spread out from Georgia into Appalachia, the mid south and deep south. They then spread into the Ozarks, jumped over the mountain states and spilled into California.

We now have documented proof they have poured into Alaska. If I was watching from across the straight in Russia, I'd be worried they are headed there next.

"Fame, attention and fortune"? From being on Tyra? Ha!

...and since they are going full retard, they're also going home empty-handed. Fail.

Also? Advocating abstinence? Her (true) observation on abstinence-only education not being "realistic" isn't exactly an endorsement for it.

this is like the BEST reality show EVER... pitch perfect casting. 4 more seasons of this and i will be ready for that 'very special episode'

They didn't always use contraception.

Wow...really?! I mean, they had a baby and everything but I had no idea it was because they weren't using contraception. I thought maybe it was some sort of divine act of providence or something! I feel so disappointed now. Seriously.



....in other words...no shit, Sherlock. Anyone with half a brain would have figured this part out, so how is it lies? Are they trying to set her up as the next immaculate conception? Go. Away. Now.

Thanks em, I was wondering if I'd just imagined that about Bristol and abstinence. There goes reality showing its liberal bias again.

I was thinking the samething as Heather. Who in their right mind believed that Lil' Palin and the Redneck only banged once, and they happened to get pregnant despite contraception? With odds like that, they be at Wasilla's casino night in a heartbeat.
