Quote of the Day
"You're running your mouth just to talk shit... Your such a faggot... Sorry that all you guys are jealous of my families success and you guys aren't goin to go anywhere with your lives."
-- 16-year-old Willow Palin via her mother's official press secretariat, Facebook, and continuing the Palin tradition of dignity, class and restraint
Willow apparently took offense to some of the taunts of her "friends" during the premiere episode of the Palins' new reality show on TLC earlier this week -- that would be the reality show not currently airing 24/7 in real reality (and if the Charlie Kaufman-esque meta-Mobius strip doesn't have you dizzy by now, you apparently own stock in Dramamine).
There's probably going to be a lot of talk about the supposed homophobic slurs being angrily volleyed by young Willow -- who, if you need a Palin clan refresher course isn't the chunky one on Dancing with the Stars and isn't the one with Down Syndrome -- but my favorite part of the above quote is actually the kid's defiantly condescending shot at everyone who didn't have the arbitrary good fortune of having a desperate septuagenarian cynically pick their mom out of obscurity and hand her a winning ticket in the pop culture Powerball. Oh yeah, and everyone who doesn't have a mother whose naked ambition and self-obsession is so all-consuming that she'll do just about anything to keep her and her Beverly Hillbilly brood in the spotlight.
By the way, and I know I'll catch hell for this but it was honestly the first thing that came to mind: Now that Willow's 16, and from the picture above a rather attractive 16 at that, how long before she follows in her family's reality TV evolutionary footsteps and winds up "accidentally" posting naked pictures -- or a sex tape -- of herself on the internet?
