Watch the full episode. See more Mark Twain Prize.

Be that as it may. . .

“And, you know, politics aside, the success of Sarah Palin and women like her is good for all women – except, of course –those who will end up, you know, like, paying for their own rape ‘kit ‘n’ stuff.’ But for everybody else, it’s a win-win. Unless you’re a gay woman who wants to marry your partner of 20 years – whatever. But for most women, the success of conservative women is good for all of us. Unless you believe in evolution. You know – actually, I take it back. The whole thing’s a disaster.” – Tina Fey, accepting the Kennedy Center’s Mark Twain Prize. However, television viewers didn’t hear Fey say that because PBS edited it out of the broadcast. The network says the show simply ran long and that they “snipped from everybody.” Right.

“A rural Dane County man believes Bristol Palin should not be on “Dancing With The Stars.”
He demanded his wife get his pistols to emphasize his point.
The result: A 15-hour standoff Monday and Tuesday involving hostage negotiators, a dog team and other law enforcement authorities on one side and the Town of Vermont man on the other.
The only casualty: The man’s television.
Dane County prosecutors have charged Steven N. Cowan with second-degree reckless endangerment in the incident that made his wife worry that he would shoot her, according to a criminal complaint.
Cowan, 67, and his wife were in the living room Monday night, watching the dance competition program that has featured the daughter of former vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin this season as one of the competitors.
As Bristol Palin danced on the screen, Cowan raged.
“The (expletive) politics,” he yelled, according to the complaint. Cowan was upset that a political figure’s daughter was on the show when he didn’t consider her a good dancer, his wife told authorities.
Cowan went to his bedroom and came back about 20 minutes later, demanding that his wife find his pistols. Cowan’s daughter had taken two handguns away for safety reasons, according to the complaint.
Cowan had tracked down a single-shot shotgun in the house, he “slapped” bullets down onto a TV tray, loaded a round and took out the TV, the complaint says.
Cowan’s face was bright red. He loaded the gun again. His wife put a blanket over her head, thinking that if her husband decided to shoot at her, she didn’t want to see it.
Cowan then demanded his pistols. His wife grabbed her purse and left the house and went to the local police department and the standoff ensued.
Cowan’s wife told authorities that he has been taking medication for bipolar disorder and that the family’s finances have caused stress. He had been drinking at a bar before he came home, according to the complaint.”

Sounds neither bi-polar nor drunk to me.

“Sarah Palin’s 16-year-old daughter Willow Palin used multiple homophobic slurs — including the word faggot — to attack a Facebook user who criticized her mom’s new reality show …. TMZ has learned.
During the premiere of “Sarah Palin’s Alaska” Sunday night — a boy named Tre who went to school with the Palin kids wrote a status update that read, “Sarah Palin’s Alaska, is failing so hard right now.”
The comment sparked an intense response from Willow — who replied on the boy’s wall, “Haha your so gay. I have no idea who you are, But what I’ve seen pictures of, your disgusting … My sister had a kid and is still hot.”
Willow followed up that comment with another that read, “Tre stfu. Your such a faggot.”
Bristol Palin also got in on the smacktalk — writing a message to Tre saying, “You’re running your mouth just to talk shit.”
Eventually, a message board war erupted — and Bristol took aim at another person named Jon — saying, “You’ll be as successful as my baby daddy, And actually I do work my ass off. I’ve been a single mom for the last two years.”
After more users began to gang up on the Palins, Willow dropped another message that read, “Sorry that you guys are all jealous of my families success and you guys aren’t goin to go anywhere with your lives.”
Sources connected to the Palin family tell us … Willow normally doesn’t use this type of language, but she felt like she was being attacked along with her family. The source added it was the baby bear defending Mama Grizzly.”

Oh I’m sure she does. After all the turd doesn’t fall far from the cow. As for those grizzlies —

Willow would doubtless make for a tasty snack.
