A comic reality TV show - 'The Palins'

At last. This, this was SO expected. It was no surprise, and it was still amazing to hear. And hilarious.

'Sherry Johnston, was arrested Thursday on drug charges by Alaska state police'

Right after the 'see it to believe it' turkey interview, - The Thanksgiving Classic, comes this X'mas special from the Palins. Episode 5: 'The In-Laws Get Busted'.

I think the moment we heard this in September, like many others, we had more such delightful expectations from this value added family.

And have they delivered. Let's see what the 2009 season holds for us, from them. Reports are there's a lot more in the script.

Land O'Lincoln: Blago's auction | Tribune bankruptcy

First off - wow! Unbelievable.

Rod Blagojevich joins so many other idiot pols, and of course continues the grand tradition of Illinois governors.

(CNN) - 'A day before Democratic Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich was busted by federal investigators on corruption charges, he dared authorities to tape his phone calls if they thought he was guilty of anything.

Authorities had indeed bugged the governor's campaign office and tapped his home phone, catching him talking about alleged plans to sell the U.S. Senate seat left empty by President-elect Barack Obama.'

He was trying to auction off Barack Obama's senate seat?!!
His reasoning was:

'The Senate seat "is a f---ing valuable thing, you just don't give it away for nothing."
And, if no one bid high enough, then he just might take the seat himself. "If ... they're not going to offer anything of value, then I might just take it."'

The US attorney said '....Lincoln would roll over in his grave' . He must have, several times already for Illinois.

Also wondering if these are distantly related - 'Blago tried to get some critics from the Chicago Tribune editorial board fired in exchange for state money to assist in the sale of Wrigley Field.'

That did not happen.

The Tribune Co. filed for bankruptcy.

Blagojevich caught saying on wiretaps - "I want to make money,"
And then he had a great idea.
