I'm contributing to the problem, I know

It is beyond the capacity of natural human consciousness to crave even a small fraction of the attention Sarah Palin has accumulated over two short years. And yet we continue heaping it upon her, unable to stop ourselves, as though our neurotransmitters are not our own but those of a gargantuan and slow-moving gelatinous mass exerting a gravitational pull on the collective frontal lobes that is somehow as exhausting to succumb to as it is to resist …

  1. Sarah Palin is an American addiction. We are a celebrity obsessed culture. We know we should kick the habit but we can't help ourselves.

    But there is hope. America tired of Paris Hilton and moved on to Lindsay Lohan. We tired of Robert Downey Jr and moved on to Charlie Sheen. Maybe some day we will tire of Sarah Palin and move on to another professional celebrity. Hopefully it won't be Bristol Palin.
