In an effort to continue our mostly flame-free day here on Pajiba (!), I thought we could turn to something we all can agree upon: Our unanimous disdain of the Palins. Right? (Shaddup, BigTodd). Michael Murray will have more on Sarah Palin’s new reality show, “Alaska,” on Friday (no, I can’t wait, either), but for now, here’s a scene from the next episode, which airs Sunday on TLC.
What is it about this otherwise tender family moment over shotguns that makes my bile rise to the back of my throat?
In other Palin related news, I’m not following “Dancing with the Stars,” though it’s hard not to hear about the conspiracy theories that have allowed the untalented Briston Palin to remain on the show as long as she has. I doubt it’s as much a conspiracy theory as having the ability to marshal the votes of the entire Tea Party population of America. But that’s another story, one that the NYTimes is following very closely.
Anyway, did you folks hear about the 67-year-old Wisconsin man, so enraged that Bristol Palin continues to remain on the show, that he shot his television, turned his gun on his wife, and ended up in an overnight standoff with a SWAT team? Dude! (Source: THR)
He should probably watch himself, though. The Palins clearly have experience with firearms.
