Let’s just state the facts for a second here: 1.) Sarah Palin is a shallow, loudmouthed, attention-hungry spotlight hog with more poisonously spunky gumption than ideas. She’s like Joe Biden minus the respectability factor. 2.) She’s proven herself willing to drop the F-bomb in her own defense when it suits her, regardless of how ridiculously inappropriate it is. 3.) Her Teenage Daughter got knocked up. Don’t pretend you don’t know the one I mean. 4.) Palin responded to the controversy by throwing Her Teenage Daughter (please don’t pretend you don’t know the one I mean) into the spotlight. This didn’t benefit her daughter or the cause of feminism one bit, but it sure provided a good media boost for one Sarah Palin (DIE, MEDIA ZOMBIE, DIE!!). And, it could be argued, she thus endorsed (encouraged?) the mainstream media sexualization of a teenager. 5.) A-Rod and Spitzer, thanks to their own sexual peccadillos, have become the setup to countless jokes. Sarah Palin’s Teenage Daughter (don’t EVEN pretend you don’t know the one I mean), thanks to her own sexual peccadillos, has become the punchline to countless jokes. Together they make a funny joke. 6.) Misanthropy + Opportunism ≠ Misogyny.
