Sarah Palin doesn’t understand irony!

It’s official! Sarah Palin is no longer a politician, so much as she is just another famewhore. Case in point: Sarah Palin has another book coming out (your English degree has just been refudiated), and in it she discusses how disgusted she was with Levi Johnston taking advantage of his newfound fame, and how people on American Idol are all talentless, fame-hungry reality TV show losers. The amount of irony in this sentence just made Shakespeare shit in his own grave.

The former Alaska governor and Republican vice presidential candidate writes in her new book that it was “disgusting” to watch the estranged father of her grandchild exploit his sudden fame after she was chosen as U.S. Sen. John McCain’s running mate in the 2008 election. Palin also has words for American Idol, writing about contestants she finds untalented and suffering as “victims of the cult of self-esteem.” SOURCE

It’s really hard to take Palin’s “Everyone is a famewhore but me!” argument seriously when you consider that, since the elections ended, all she’s done is quit her job as a politician in order to write books and sell TV shows. Seriously; the fact that we’ve pretty much had a Palin post every day this week should probably tip you off that she’s officially crossed the line from politician to celebrity. She’s fair game people! I repeat: Sarah Palin is now fair game!
