From the Times Online:

THE rambunctious extended family of Sarah Palin, the Republican governor of Alaska who ran for US vice-president, produced a fresh scandal this weekend when the mother of her daughter’s fiancé was arrested on drug charges.

Sherry Johnston, 42, was arrested on six charges relating to the prescription drug oxycontin, which is widely known as “hillbilly heroin”.

Oy, do I have a guy for her!!!

Original DVD cover.

Her 18-year-old son Levi was thrust into the political spotlight during the election campaign when it emerged that Palin’s teenage daughter Bristol, also 18, was pregnant by him.


Had the Republicans won the election, Bristol’s son might have had one grandmother in the White House and the other in prison. It adds a curious new chapter to the family saga of Palin, known as the “thriller from Wasilla”.

Johnston’s arrest followed a lengthy undercover narcotics investigation. Oxycontin is a highly addictive heroin substitute that can be smoked, snorted or injected.

Bristol and Levi were greeted warmly by Senator John McCain, the Republican candidate, on stage at the party’s national convention in September as a mark of support for their decision to have the baby. The two of them have said they plan to marry.

The police declined to say whether Johnston had been under investigation during the election campaign. She was arrested on Thursday and released from jail on $5,000 (£3,330) bail.


A spokesman for Palin said there would be no comment since “this is not a state government matter”.

I wonder who tipped off the cops. OMG! You don’t think it might have been….

  1. I don’t know if I could ever wrap my head around the idea that anyone could be made for Rush Limbaugh. He’s 0 for 2, and pretty apt to stay that way; I mean, he said “I think cigars are just a tremendous addition to the enjoyment of life.”

    Maybe he’s just playin’ for the wrong team.

  2. saitia,
    the old saying goes, there’s a pot for every lid. of course, in limpdick’s case, it would take a lot of pot (much more than a lid) and perhaps some chloroform before anyone would even want to sit next to him. however, it seems things are different in alaska, so maybe he would be a bit luckier up there.

    p.s. i don’t think there’s any team that wants him.

    when i first saw your poster, i thought rush was getting married (again!). i think he’s 0-4.

  4. jenn,
    wiki says 3 so far. how can any relationship work when the only one he is in love with is himself?

    nonnie, you crack me up! Now you’re a matchmaker! Terrific title, too…

  6. I wish I had the stomach to listen to Rush Limbaugh’s show to see if he mentions Johnstone’s OxyContin situation.
    I’m sure the pontificating, fat fu¢k would drone on and on about how it was anyone’s fault but hers.
    Hillbilly heroin?
    Can’t they just call it Republican heroin?
    As for the two of them hooking up, it would take something a lot more anesthetic than Oxy to make anyone want to get near that cigar-reeking walrus.

  7. Karen, how about lots of cash, as in “want to see my big wad?”

  8. Nonnie, one of the best bits of unintentional humor was on the original–“Made for each other” and “Synergy Entertainment.” The geek in my loved the juxtaposition.

  9. nightowl,
    could there be any other title?

  10. karen, karen, karen,
    don’t you know that there are different rules for the rich and for trailer trash? limpdick thinks all the scummy drug addicts (those making less than a million a year) should go to jail forever. the others should face no consequences whatsoever.

  11. neon vincent,
    😆 you must be reading my mind. when i saw synergy, i thought to myself that it was perfect, and i was not going to change it at all. sometimes i get lucky like that.

  12. It’s better to be lucky than to be good. In your case, you’re both!

  13. awwww, thanks, neon vincent! 😳

  14. if i am not mistaken – rush was also caught smuggling in Viagra

    sherry johnston – just saying

  15. dcAp,
    if he hooks up with sherry, rush limpdick can fire his maid. he’ll no longer need her to get prescriptions for him.

  16. All the money in the world would not erase the slime being near Limbaugh would cause.
    He’s, simply put, unfu¢kable.

  17. karen,
    i love that song! nat king cole is one of my faves!

    😳 oops! i was thinking of unforgettable. nevermind!
