For one meal only, but still, it was alluring and educational. See, I dropped by some Indian dive in the West 20s for a quickie lunch the other day and ordered the $6.99 special, which involved three roti, two vegetables, soup, rice, and condiments. For some reason, I thought roti were balls of ta ... More >>
No, he's not the person in the above image. He's camera-shy--and in fact told me he'd like to only go by the appellation "H.G." As in Homeless Guy. And he's got some great things to say. To wit: "If you're happily married, then you're not doing it right."
It's been almost four years since Sarah Palin made her way onto the national stage at the Republican National Convention. But, since the defeat of her and McCain in the election, we have been gifted with the constant recurrences of the Alaskan personality. Yes, we DVR'ed Game Change, too.At fir ... More >>
Fresh off playing Sarah Palin, Julianne Moore has been offered the role of another crazed fanatic--Margaret White, the title character's bible-thumping mom in Carrie, the Kimberly Peirce-directed redo of the 1976 classic based on the Stephen King book. That's the one about the outcast who learns "i ... More >>
Perhaps the grossest thing I've seen since Sarah Palin's candidacy. The horror thriller's final 30 minutes are packed with blood, guts, mucous, noise, banging, screaming, flying objects, and more blood. Some might take this as a warning, but the vast majority of filmgoers will probably see it as a ... More >>
I don't have room to print all of them. Even though the Internet is infinite, my fingers would eventually give out at a certain point. So let's just name the things Sarah Palin didn't know according to HBO's Game Change, the riveting film which has been running over and over again to drill her clu ... More >>
Next month, HBO will start airing Game Change, starring Julianne Moore as vice-presidential-wannabe-turned-reality-star Sarah Palin, and it's too early for reviews, but some buzz is already filtering out like horny moose on the tundra.
And that's even more of a nightmare than the day is supposed to be! It means that, after an entire weekend of dressing like Sarah Palin and scaring little children while untangling yourself from all the cheap faux spiderwebs from all those house parties you crashed in hopes of finding an app ...

Joe McGinniss' highly anticipated tell-all about Sarah Palin, which you will want to be buying after this -- it's out September 20 -- may actually merit all that anticipation. According to the National Enquirer, which seems to have gotten ahold of a galley of (or some savvy publishing sources ... More >>
The Republican 2012 Presidential race, which has given us so much pleasure, remains in flux. Mitt Romney holds a lead, but is unacceptable to "the base" because he once tried to help uninsured sick people; thus, various fringe candidates compete ferociously (and that is the right word) for the right ...

This afternoon gives new meaning to the term "news dump," as six boxes containing 24,199 printed pages of emails -- weighing 250 pounds -- from Sarah Palin's half-term as governor of Alaska become part of the public record. For each publication that filed the necessary open law records paperw ... More >>
Hoo, hoo, Fox News is so funny! Instead of using an image of the actual Sarah Palin in their news report about how Palin was "50/50″ on running for president in 2012, they used a picture of Tina Fey playing Sarah Palin on Saturday Night Live. We presume this was an accident. In other Sarah ... More >>
Remember how Sarah Palin has absolutely no idea what that Paul Revere guy did back in the Civil War or whatever? He didn't shoot guns or ring bells, contrary to Palin's opinion. But she's sticking to her guns. Palin appeared on Fox News this morning to defend her historical accuracy, saying "I di ... More >>
Last night Sarah Palin met Mr. Donald Trump for dinner at Famous Famiglia's in Times Square, where the two -- horror of horrors -- ate their pepperoni pizza with a knife and fork (a knife and fork!). Today, Palin has continued in her authentic experience of our great city by touring Ellis and ... More >>
Maybe this really is the age of WikiLeaks. Transparency, hacks and secrets of all stripes are currently getting big play in media news, ranging from the travails of Anthony Weiner's penis to shady New York Times snooping and the Freedom of Information Act at work. We've seen the latter in the ... More >>
Sarah Palin's top-secret bus tour will include a stop in New York City tonight, where she'll visit her friend and fellow Republican/reality TV-star Donald Trump at his apartment in Trump Tower before heading out for dinner with the onetime possible rumored presidential contender. Ah, to be a ... More >>
The cover of New York magazine this week features another Fox News/Republican party exposé from reporter Gabriel Sherman (see also: "Chasing Fox," Sarah Palin), this time focusing on the network's boss Roger Ailes, who never fails to make an interesting (and infuriating) subject with his pro ...

In case you haven't been paying attention to Sarah Palin's antics lately (in which case: good for you), she recently got mad on the Facebook and the Twitters about noted rapper Common Sense performing at a White House poetry event. Like everything Palin says, this is gross and wrong. She appa ... More >>
Mad MomTrig's Crew is really freaking pissed. Yesterday we noted the growing outrage directed at the very often hilarious politics blog Wonkette and writer Jack Stuef, who perhaps took it too far when he wrote a relentlessly mean, but still satirical post about Sarah Palin's son Trig, born wi ...

Hey, maybe she still is, for all I know. Anyway, that's one of the revelations in the E! True Hollywood Story about the former Alaska Governor, airing on April 21 at 10 PM ET/PT. Here are the juiciest quotes the show culled from various experts who've observed the scary lady in action. *A ... More >>

Sarah Palin was the wrong choice for Vice President in 2008, but Julianne Moore seems like the right choice to play Palin in Game Change, the HBO movie that will cover the sweep and drama of that particular historic election. Yes, I know, Tina Fey already nailed the role, but no doubt this f ... More >>
Charlie Sheen is basically Sarah Palin. (For one, they're both way more famous since becoming sort of unemployed.) That's why, feeling complicit as a writer on the internet in the national obsession with Palin -- who Sheen is temporarily the new, more pure version of (in a drug sense) -- I de ... More >>
By one man at least: Dana Milbank of the Washington Post used his column space at the end of last week as an opportunity for mild self-flagellation, admitting that since the 2008 election, he has written about Sarah Palin in 42 column and in "dozens more blog posts, Web chats, and TV and radi ...

Not literally. That sounds mildly dirty. Just as supporters. If we can rally around the whack job and help her get the Republican nomination in 2012, then we're totally safe for four more years! She'll lose!
My favorite comic, Joan Rivers, recently joked that Sarah Palin should go to another planet and get out of our faces, and that people are right to blame her for the Arizona shootings because "she's stupid and a threat." Next thing you know, Fox News Channel's Fox and Friends show cancelled h ... More >>
While Sarah Palin bemoaned the state of public discourse as it flew from sorrow and mourning to finger-pointing, the nation itself grabbed a popcorn bucket and sat back while she attempted a curious, teleprompted defense. Some commentators are questioning what effect her bloody awful choice o ... More >>
Proof she is not a robot, or: nightmare. Both? Digital editing trio Wreck & Salvage have put together this bonkers clip of Sarah Palin's breaths during yesterday's controversial "blood lust" speech on Jared Loughner's Arizona shooting.

Gabrielle Giffords remains hospitalized. Sara Palin was also a victim and she wants everyone to know. In her first public statement on t ... More >>
America's mainstream press is so polite, so scared. At least the overseas papers know when to call "bullshit" during coverage of the Jared Loughner saga. Sarah Palin's claim of being a victim of "blood libel" is so ludicrous as to defy belief. Or as Damian Thompson, blogs editor of the Telegraph ... More >>
It quickly became the story of the day, just like she wanted, but then things got uglier. Sarah Palin appears to have pulled her video response to the Arizona shooting from the site Vimeo, which now shows zero clips under Palin's name. Palin's use of the term "blood libel," which usually refe ... More >>
Just this time, OK? It would be very comforting to be able to blame Sarah Palin for the horrible Arizona shootings, but it would seem a little hypocritical since we always say you can't blame rock stars and their crazy songs for various teen tragedies that are often ascribed to them by right ...

Grab it while it's hot! The domain bloodlibel.com is available. (Check out the "related" searches--a bloody howl!) Master this domain before Sarah Palin does. Put yourself in the middle of the noisy, futile debate over Palin and the even crazier Jared Loughner.
After Saturday's shootings in Arizona -- which left Democratic Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords badly wounded and six people dead -- rightbloggers were swift to condemn... any possible criticism of themselves. You can understand their defensiveness. Back during the 2010 campaign, Sarah Palin had en ... More >>
And it's getting bigger!Sarah Palin may actually be right for once! After people teased her about her freakish creation of the word "refudiate," she tweeted, "English is a living language.

HarperCollins is suing Gawker Media for publishing excerpts of Sarah Palin's new autobiography, America by Heart, before its release date.

http://tlc.discovery.com/The average American Sunday of many is something like: brunch, nap, football.

Tell me the truth: If the absolute worst-case scenario happens, all good sense is thrown to the tundra, and for some crazy reason Sarah Palin ends up in the White House in two years, will you end up in Saskatchewan?
Never went to J-school In the middle of the week, Vanity Fair made the massive profile, "Sarah Palin: The Sound and the Fury," available online. Like anything related to the ex-governor and former vice presidential candidate, the article proved to be a lightning rod for for supporters and det ... More >>
It's a great day in politics when the public is accepting of no better a revenge plot than the one Levi Johnston is clearly putting forth at the expense of the Palin family by running for Mayor of Wasilla, Alaska.

It's almost not fun to harp on Sarah Palin's online foibles. It still is, though. Today, she took to her biggest soapbox, Twitter, to say insensitive, condescending things about Muslims.
