  1. I'm glad Sarah Palin has once again shown her enormous intellectual capacity and ability to deliver can't-fail solutions.

    I love Gaga, but this Madonna/80s bras as streetwear stuff is Really Tired. Especially for someone who recently claimed that she's tired of paparazzi, which was clearly a lie.

  2. Palin is barking: she wants to meet Lady Thatcher (who is terribly frail these days and doesn't "do" politics anymore!) and she thinks God will intervene on the BP spill... oh yeah, she'd be fricking marvelous as your President. She could call herself President Gaga peut-etre?

  3. 15 years ago Mike Huckabee weighed 450 pounds and lived in a trailer. He's just more proof that you can take the trash out of the trailer park, but you can't take the trailer park out of the trash.

  4. My understanding is that Thatcher is in later stages of Alzheimer's and is barely even in this world anymore. Is this a joke?

  5. That would be perfect for Palin. She's barely in this world as well.

  6. Yeah, I remember reading that Thatcher was an Alzheimer's sufferer as well (I remember thinking 'she caught it from Reagan!) WTF does Palin think, she can get a good photo op out of it to use in her next campaign? 'See, I can also lead a country, because Thatcher did...and we're both women...and conservative...get it?!'

    Lame as FUCK, this woman!

  7. "..And thus did the Anointed one raise his Right Hand and with force did he plunge his middle finger into the oily confluence of "Oily Santorum" and thus did the leakage cease, and thereby fulling the bountiful (like Breasts) of the chosen one, Palin, for he liketh her bountiful prayers (breasts)!!!

  8. RE: Ms. Sarah's tweet. Another great solution. I'd say, Ms. Sarah, that your first idea, you know, hiring some Dutch people to come over because they know how to plug dikes, is probably the best one. I don't think that, um, God really gives a sh!t.

  9. I have to admit chuckling when I saw Kagan's tie.
