"Are you gay?" Katie Couric asked Manti Te'o, the Notre Dame football star who was duped into a long-distance faux-lationship by Ronaiah Tuiasosopo, allegedly with the assistance of Tuiasosopo's female cousin. "No," Te'o responded. "Far from it. Faaaar from it."
But just how far from gay can Te'o get? A visualization is in order:

Tina Fey and SNL on the Make-Believe 'Sarah Palin Network' Which Will Not Be So Make-Believe in a Few Years
I give it less than a year after Oprah Winrey's network — the Oprah Winfrey Network, which is going live on January 1 — is proven to be a financial success that other celebrities start unveiling their own networks. To mind mind, the smart money is on Sarah Palin's to be rolled out after Martha Stewart's but before Corey Feldman's…

Aay! May! Zing!
Matt Drudge somehow Drudged up a nice long chunk of excerpt from Sarah Palin's soon-to-be-released book Ecce Sarah: Why I Am So America. And — please allow me to tell you what I I am going to tell you — it does not disappoint. Not at all.
It reads like the best Sarah Palin fan fiction any Sarah Palin fan ever fictioned. Except this Sarah Palin fan is the biggest Sarah Palin fan of all: Sarah Palin (and ghostwriter)!
Check out this part where Sarah magnanimously deigns to get interviewed by dowdy loser Katie Couric…
"Katie really likes you," she said to me one day. "she's a working mom and admires you as a working mom. She has teenage daughter like you. She just relates to you," Nicolle said. "believe me, I know her very well. I’ve worked with her."…
Nicolle went on to explain that Katie really needed a career boost. "She just has such low self-esteem," Nicolle said. She added that Katie was going through a tough time. "She just feels she can’t trust anybody."
I was thinking, And this has to do with John McCain's campaign how?
Nicolle said. "She wants you to like her."
Hearing all that, I almost started to feel sorry for her. Katie had tried to make a bold move from lively morning gal to serious anchor, but the new assignment wasn't going very well.
Don't do it, Sarah! Don't go in that room! She has a question about newspapers! Aaaaaaaahhh!!!
Oh my God! The drama! The intrigue! The betrayal! I'm on the edge of my seat over this very real-sounding, not at all soap-opera-ish account of how things probably actually happened in the real world.
