* Poor, poor Jon Huntsman. He has a debilitating case of believes in science.
* Sarah Palin has a "fire in [her] belly" for the 2012 election. Not sure what that means, but it's got to help her poll numbers better than when Bristol had a "baby in her belly" for the 2008 election.

If Bristol Palin isn't the embodiment of the American dream, I don't know who is.
In what other country can an unmarried teenage mother with no discernible talent or personality work her way up from a lowly multimillion dollar job as the face of Big Abstinence to become an actual reality TV star? What a country!
I just hope that this rising starlet's new show isn't so far-fetched and fiction-based as to be bordering on insulting…
[S]he has settled on her follow-up to Dancing [with the Stars], a docu-series for BIO Channel, which reunites her with fellow Dancing contestant, actor Kyle Massey. BIO has ordered 10 half-hour episodes of the untitled series, which also will feature Massey's brother, actor Christopher Massey.
It follows Bristol Palin’s move from Alaska to Los Angeles with her son, Tripp, to work at a small charity in need while living with her good friends Chris and Kyle Massey.
Nope! Totally reality-based!
I wonder if she'll be fighting vampires in her down time. Or should they maybe save that for the second season?

Rebel Pundit directs our attention to an "unhinged lunatic" protester at Saturday's Tea Party rally in Madison, Wisconsin. But did they ever think that maybe, just maybe, he was trying to speak her language?
It sounds like he's says something like "Make your choice now, Sarah." We're not sure. But, judging from Palin’s speech that day — and, well, from the pretzelly logic with which she says most things — maybe his was an attempt to get to her level. And that's a reach across the aisle that should be commended.
After all, barking like a madman is the watermark of our more conservative voices. In fact, that very same day, at the very same rally, following that very same Palin speech, Andrew Breitbart delivered an eloquent directive for protesters to "Go to hell. No serious. Go to hell. Go to hell."
Now that’s some powerful speech-making from a man who makes sense.

* Glenn Beck officially breaks the awful news and informs a heart-broken nation he never really wanted that stupid show anyway.
* Teenage unmarried pregnancy is really paying well these days. In my day, it used to net a little under a grand on the black market.
* Michele Bachmann reveals that she is too not-stupid-enough to lead country.
* John Boehner only cries a little over government shutdown.

As is clearly shown by abstinence spokes-teenage-mother Bristol Palin, abstinence-only education is the absolutely very best path for our children to start lucrative reality TV dancing careers. It's only drawback is that it's pretty much worthless at stopping little kids from growing littler kids from growing inside their stomachs.
With that nitpicky little detail in mind, Rep. Barbara Lee and Sen. Frank Lautenberg (baby-hating Democrats the both them) think maybe we should stop sinking billions of dollars into it…
A pair of Democrats introduced legislation in the House and Senate Tuesday to cut off funding for abstinence-only sexual education, which they said had wasted more than $1.5 billion over the last 15 years…
"We need to get serious about educating our young people about sex," added Rep. Barbara Lee (D-Calif.), the House sponsor. "Abstinence-only programs fail to address the challenge of unplanned pregnancies and sexually-transmitted infections among our youth, which have reached a critical level."
The bill, known as the Repealing Ineffective and Incomplete Abstinence-Only Program Funding Act, would redirect $50 million spent annually on abstinence-only sexual education to "evidence-based, comprehensive sex education programs," according to a release from Lautenberg. The release cites as evidence that abstinence education doesn't work the relatively high teen pregnancy rate in the United States as well as the HIV infection rate among those under the age of 29.
Too bad they didn't introduce it last year when there was a sliver of an iota of a fraction of a scintilla's chance of it ever making it through congress.
But hey, cool sentiment, bro!
