It’s not like Dick Cheney was known for being barrel of laughs, but in the eyes of Sacha Baron Cohen, Dick is apparently the Don Rickles of the Executive Branch. When Sarah Palin came out saying she had been duped into giving an interview to some SBC character for a fake documentary, most of us gleefully squealed over what Wasilla’s Wonder Woman was going to do to make her look even more dumb. Who Is America? premiered, and each episode went by with no Sarah. Her interview was never used, and she was only mentioned in a credit of the last episode as “Special Publicity Consultant (Inadvertent).” Sacha says that’s because she’s not funny.
It’s awards season in Tinseltown, which means Fox News writers are giddily pre-writing all their stories on how left wing California actors are taking a giant poop on their moral ways. Enter: Sacha Baron Cohen. The prankster really got under Trump supporter skin this year for Who Is America? The mockumentary somehow managed to bamboozle Dick Cheney into signing a waterboarding kit, got Roy Moore to stand in front of a pedophile meter, and got free press from Sarah Palin (no, that’s not her next to him in the pic above) without her making the cut. Naturally, the Hollywood Foreign Press awarded that with a Golden Globe nomination, and Sacha wants to thank Sarah by taking her as his date.
Track Palin, which is somehow the name of an actual Sarah Palin offspring and not just some Brooklyn DJ trying to be ironic (and also pictured above with sister Willow Palin), hasn’t exactly been the Tea Party’s most upstanding citizen. Track assaulted his then-girlfriend in 2016, and he also later beat up his dad. His mom has blamed it all on PTSD from serving in Iraq, and she’ll probably still defend his ass since it still isn’t as bad as voting for Hillary Clinton (in her mind anyway). Track got arrested again a few days ago for hitting a woman in the head at her own home. The cops came, and he tried to resist arrest…but they finally got his ass in the slammer. Well, the law is coming down on Track by placing him under custody for a year.
TMZ reports that Sarah Palin’s 29-year-old Track Palin is on-track (I had to) to officially become the worst Palin. On Friday night, Alaska State Troopers responded to a report of a disturbance at Track’s home in Wasilla. Track allegedly got violent with a woman at the residence, although it’s not known who the woman is or what her relation to Track is. The Alaska Department of Public Safety (whose motto should simply be: Stay Safe – Stay Away from the Palins) would only describe the woman as an acquaintance.
Sacha Baron Cohen’s new Showtime series Who Is America? is a great show if you enjoy cringing over clueless bigots enthusiastically making an ass of themselves (sometimes literally). One of the biggest draws was the promise of an appearance by Sarah Palin. Sadly, we might not get to watch such entertaining programming.
Alaskan spawning salmon Bristol Palin is joining the cast of MTV’s Teen Mom OG for their upcoming eighth season. Despite Bristol not being a teen (she’s 27) or an original member of the 16 and Pregnant/Teen Mom cast, she’ll be front and center on MTV’s long-running reality show about the lives and loves of surly young women, their dumb and/or beleaguered sperm donors, and their unfortunate children. And she’s being paid $250K for the privilege! That’s a lot of bail money to cover the aftermath of the Palin family’s next drunk-ass snowmobile hoedown. Continue reading
