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.

Sarah Palin Refudiates English

Move over, George W. Bush, there’s a new language butcher and she’s on a tear. Sarah Palin loved her made-up word refudiate so much she used it twice—first in an interview and again on Twitter. Realizing she blew it, Palin corrected the word to refute but then used it incorrectly. Eventually, she compared herself to William Shakespeare and called it a day.

Sarah Palin Gets Philosophical

We’ve been following Sarah Palin on Twitter and so far we’ve been rewarded with a lot of boring dispatches about the Iditarod, the “Labor Commish” and those dreamy smoke jumpers. But the fickle Alaska governor dropped a couple of quotes on us Wednesday that make it pretty clear she sees herself as a conscientious iconoclast willing to “sacrifice to win.”
