Sarah Palin’s strict views have turned her into a grandma for the second time; al-Qaida takes a page out of Disney’s book to recruit children; meanwhile, Facebook fights Google+ by adding news to its online community. These discoveries and more after the jump.

Fine, She’s Not a Witch, but Can She Cha-Cha?

As if schlocky TV and American politics weren’t harrowingly similar enough already, this week brings the word that onetime tea party Senate hopeful Christine O’Donnell of Delaware got the invite to join the prancing cohort of celebs on the next “Dancing With the Stars.”

Bristol Palin Loses a Dance Competition

Forgive us this unabashed descent into mass culture, but our long national nightmare is over. Bristol Palin, despite some critics’ allegations of tea party favoritism, did not win on “Dancing With the Stars.” That honor (if it is one) goes to “Dirty Dancing” star Jennifer Grey, because nobody puts Baby in a corner.

Bigotry Catapults Willow Palin Into the Spotlight

And then the next thing you know, another Palin pops out of the woodwork. This time, it’s 16-year-old Willow Palin’s turn to frolic in her own notoriety, but hers is not a shining moment to make her mama grizzly proud—or at least let’s hope not.

Sarah Palin’s Latest Incarnation: Reality Star

Sarah Palin has been many things to many people: Vice presidential candidate to John McCain; inspirational leader to scores of She-publicans and “Mama Grizzlies,” not to mention tea partyers in Alaska and “the lower 48”; and brunt of jokes to countless others besides Tina Fey.

Levi Johnston: ‘I Don’t Watch a Whole Lotta News’

Could this be the face of the future of politics? Let’s hope not. Alaskan pinup boy turned wannabe politico Levi Johnston has a bit of a tough time answering “The Last Word” host Lawrence O’Donnell’s fairly basic questions about evolution, abortion and global warming ... (continued)

And Now for the Inevitable Levi Johnston Reality Show

Can Levi Johnston catapult his career from the pages of Playgirl to the vaunted position once held by the woman who’s now twice escaped being his mother-in-law? That would, of course, be Sarah Palin—and no, we’re not talking about becoming Miss Wasilla.

Another Made-for-TV Teen Mom Moment From Bristol Palin

Here we have a prime example of entertainment education, in which important messages about a real-life social issue are embedded in a television program that’s slightly more subtle than an after-school special. Starring Bristol Palin!

Bristol Palin to Speak Her Wisdom for a Steep Price

A girl can gain a lot of wisdom from adversity, and, as a teen mom and as Sarah Palin’s daughter, Bristol Palin has no doubt encountered some life challenges in just 19 years. But is that hard-won knowledge worth $30,000 a pop?

Levi Johnston Talks (and Talks) About the Palins

Although the world at large has yet to find out exactly what spurred Sarah Palin to vacate her post as Alaska’s governor this summer, her almost-son-in-law Levi Johnston pipes up (surprise!) in the latest edition of Vanity Fair, helpfully offering that Palin’s plan had something to do with money.

Levi Johnston’s Media Blitz Continues

Sarah Palin is facing several challenges these days, what with her pile of legal bills, self-reinvention campaign, the whole not-being-governor thing and her daughter Bristol’s pesky ex-boyfriend, Levi Johnston, who seems to want to bask in the limelight as long as possible. Most recently, Johnston, 19, made an appearance at Sunday’s Teen Choice Awards ... as the date of comedian Kathy Griffin, 48.

Bristol Palin on Bringing Up Baby

It’s definitely “do as I say, not as I do” material, but Bristol Palin showed up on NBC’s “Today” show Wednesday morning with dad Todd and baby Tripp in an effort to prevent other teenagers from becoming parents before they’re ready. Matt Lauer snuck in a question about babydaddy Levi Johnston, but Bristol totally wasn’t having it.

What’s a former would-be-son-in-law of Sarah Palin to do once his time as an adjunct member of the family is over? Why, go on “The Tyra Banks Show” of course, as Bristol Palin’s ex, Levi Johnston, has done in an episode slated to air Monday. This media-baiting move has clearly angered Mama Bear Palin.

Bristol Palin: Abstinence-Only Plan Doesn’t Work

Last fall, Bristol Palin became a controversial figure in her mother Sarah Palin’s vice presidential bid when it was revealed, not long after the elder Palin took to the campaign trail, that the teenaged Bristol was pregnant by her high school boyfriend. Now Bristol has re-emerged to make a few comments that run against her mom’s approach to teen sex ed.

National Review Writer: Abortion Issue Drives the Left’s Hate for Palin

Why is it that liberals and the “gotcha media” so dislike Sarah Palin? Thank goodness the National Review’s Kevin Burke, who apparently holds an advanced degree in armchair psychology, is here to help us get to the bottom of this troubling issue.
