The Talent Competition?

Governor Palin makes the speech of her life tonight or as her critics and comedians might say, the “talent competition” of the pageant starts this evening. Now that’s funny! (Commentary actually borrowed this from the Borowitz Report via My Brown Eyed Girl.)

Here’s from yesterday’s New York Post about the U.S. of A.’s most famous teenage dad to be:

“Palin and her husband, Todd, said that their daughter plans to marry the baby's father - whom sources identified as high-school jock Levi Johnston - and that both ‘are going to realize very quickly the difficulties of raising a child, which is why they will have the love and support of our entire family.’

Johnston, 17, who is entering his senior year at Wasilla HS, plays on the school hockey team and was once teammates on a youth squad with Palin's older brother, Track, 19, now in the Army.

Despite suffering a cracked bone in his shin last season, Johnston scored 24 goals in 24 games.

‘We don't want to talk about this,’ said a woman who answered the phone at the Johnston home.

On a MySpace page subsequently taken down, Johnston boasts, ‘I'm a f - - -in' redneck’ who likes to snowboard and ride dirt bikes.

‘But I live to play hockey. I like to go camping and hang out with the boys, do some fishing, shoot some s- - - and just f - - -in' chillin' I guess.’

‘Ya f - - - with me I'll kick [your] ass,’ he added.

He also claims to be ‘in a relationship,’ but states, ‘I don't want kids.’ “

Poor kid. It looks like the Chron didn’t pay attention to Obama either. Here is their lead editorial today on teen pregnancy.
Here is their front page Star Section story. Sorry Obama.

Observations from last night’s GOP National Convention – GOP Delegates can’t dance – period. Dem delegates can dance, GOP delegates, well, they look like they were dancing on bum knees. They were like two thirds of a beat behind a beat.

Speaking of dancing with those who didn’t brung you, if Dems hadn’t had the 2000 election stolen from us, last week A__hole Joe would have given a big speech in Denver last week. Instead, A-Joe was pimping for McCain last night.

From another Commentary reader who sent this to CEWDEM: “All this Sarah Palin bashing about her pregnant daughter is going to backfire. Getting tired of Mark Campos and his daily nothingness.” - from an El Paso fella I think.

Hey, it’s MARC -M-A-R-C like JLo’s hubby, like the guy that gave the eulogy in the Shakespeare piece.

It looks like the H-Town Mayor’s Office still read Commentary. They are fixing to kick up the City’s recycling program according to the Chron – good for us. Check it out here.

They are an exciting and fun to team to watch for sure. Seven in a row, seven games above .500, and we won in 11 last night. The game lasted over four hours – whew, we’re twelve back!
