Kate, plus 8 and a flake…

Every morning I read the Google news. I like to keep up on the happenings around the world, especially since I don’t watch TV. I read the US news first, then the world news, then the entertainment news. I skip sports because it’s not college football season, and I don’t care about any other sports.

The only reason I read the entertainment section is to see if anyone died. I could give a fat rat’s behind that Lindsay Lohan is in jail. I could also care less about parenting tips from Angelina Jolie.

Speaking of parenting, I saw this little piece of nonsense this morning:

“The Earth is about to be knocked off its axis: Kate Gosselin and Sarah Palin, the two most powerful cultural forces in America, are about to meet. In Touch Weekly says Kate and her brood of eight will go camping in the Alaskan wilds with Sarah for an episode of TLC's Kate Plus 8. Palin's retired science-teacher dad, Chuck Heath, will give the kids a hands-on nature lesson.”

Okay, I know I don’t watch a lot of television, but did I miss something?? Since when did Kate Gosselin and Sarah Palin become the “two most powerful cultural forces in America”? I mean, really? This author can not think of even one woman in this country who is more powerful than these two dingalings?

I don’t even watch TV and I know these two should have been voted off a long time ago.


  1. It's such fasinating TV out there isn't it? Kate Plus 8 and Sarah Palin really??? You know whats sad? It will probably be a huge draw! After my Sunday spent watching the Jersey Shore I think I am going to take your que and give up TV - it's all crap!

  2. I heard they are going to call that episode "Dumb and Dumber."

  3. Wow, I will not be watching that. It's almost like all those female CEO's and Oprah and Hillary Clinton and the new Supreme Court justices and just drops in the bucket compared to Sarah Palin and Kate Gosselin. Give me a break!

  4. Maybe we'll get lucky and a bear will get them both. Okay, maybe that's wrong. I'll sit in a corner and think about what I've done now. And try not to giggle.

  5. That is just stupid stuff! I'm gagging now!

  6. I guess thats all they can find to put on TV now, since it is not FOOTBAll(OSU)season yet, thats why i spend a lot of time outside.

  7. Sounds like a great reason to continue not watching tv to me.

  8. That's why I love my digital music channels on TV. That sounds like a train wreck.

  9. I know NOTHING!
    I hear NOTHING!
    I see NOTHING!

  10. This kind of thing is exactly why I don't read the entertainment pages, or watch entertainment shows. Ridiculous how much they value these stars, especially when it comes to things that they know no more about than the average person. It's like because they know how to act they must know everything else.

    “two most powerful cultural forces in America”

    God help us if this is true...

  11. Hi Dawn, your blog looks beautiful with all the pretty colors and such! Glad to be here.

    And about those two loony tunes being "powerful forces"? All I can say is WTF?

    I love the previous comment about dumb and dumber!


I would love to hear what you have to say!
