OK, yeah - stupid people can be popular. But look at the context and it is a bit more damning than that.
First picture - rich father, does nothing to but be an embarrassment. I'm guessing schadenfreude. Who knows. Some people probably think she's attractive.
Second picture - no clue. That one boggles the mind. And reminds me of something else that amused me this week:
Third picture: had a mildly successful music career, so could be said to have some talent, despite being stupid.
Sarah Palin - a one time elected official who is probably on the tip of many Rebulican/Tea Party tongues for their next Presidential Candidate!! If we are lucky, we won't see any of the other three run for political office, but the fact that there is this type of popularity behind Palin is flabbergasting. Particularly when you see how they turned on Obama.
I know... I expect too much.
